Minor Hurling Championship
Midleton 1-18 Castlelyons 0-14
Midleton minor hurlers opened their defence of the county title when they faced Castlelyons in Killeagh on Wednesday evening last.. On a lovely evening for hurlrling Castlelyons were first out of the blocks. For long periods of the first half they looked the more impressive team. They had some lovely passing movements and led at one stage by 0-08 to 0-04. Midleton gradually worked their way back into the game and had the better of the last few minutes of the half to lead by a point at half time 0-09 to 0-08. Midleton management made a couple of poisitional switches at the break. The changes appeared to work and a general raising of our game meant that we were doing much better. A fortuitous goal from a long range delivery by Killian Burke opened up some daylight and Midleton drove on from there having the better of the exchanges for the last ten minutes. In the end the margin of victory was seven points. We now face Glen Rovers this coming weekend though though time and venu were not to hand at time of writing.

Junior A Hurling Championship
Midleton 1-13 Erins Own 0-13
Midleton Junior A hurlers came through a tight game against Erins Own on Saturday evening last to qualify for the quarter final of the East Cork Oil sponsored Championship. This was our fifth game in this years championship and it was a win that was hard earned. We were fortunate to have Conor lehan available to us and his 0-07 points from play was the difference between the teams. The strong wind which Midleton was blowing fromcorner flag to corner flag made it hard to score. Midleton had it aiding them in the first half and for long periods struggled to gain an advantage. A stong closing ten minutes saw us open a five point lead at the break, 0-09 to 0-04. Erins Own applied the pressure early in the second half and soon had the game tied. We were struggling for scores the games and the game appeard to be drifting away from us. However a Michael Keohane overhead pull finished a Jamie O Mahony cross to the back of the net. It was to prove a vital score. We worked hard to maintain our lead and came through with a goal to spare in the end. We now face Dungourney in a quarter final.
Team:Joe Loftus; Alan Cahill (Capt) Alwyn Kearney, Colum Leahy; Padraig O'Keefe, Killian Burke, Leslie Coughlan; Shane Ryan, Tom Wallis; Keith Ryan, Paul Barry, Conor Lehane; Davey O'Brien, Micheal Keohane, Jamie O'Mahony.
