Minor Hurling Quarter Final
Midleton 1-13 Castlelyons 2-12
Midleton minor hurlers came up just short in their Championship quarter final against Castlelyons on Friday night last. Having defeated Castlelyons after a tough game in an earlier round back in July Midleton knew that this game was never going to be easy. Castlelyons had the better of the earlier exchanges and Midleton struggled to contain their opponents. The Magpies struck an unusual number of wides and were unable to exert any dominance in the first half. At half time Castlelyons led by four points 2-06 to 1-05. The Midleton selectors made a number of switches for the second half in an attempt to get back on top. In the early part of the second half we were on top but failed to convert that dominance into scores. Try as hard as we did we never got our noses in front and in the end we lost out by two points. It was a tough defeat for all involved after the huge effort made by players and management but Castlelyons performed better then us on the night and they now face St. Finnbarr’s in a semi final.
Team: Coran Swayne, Padraig O’Farrell, Billy O’Shea, Leslie Coughlan, Killian Burke, Elliott Mulcahy, Cathal McCarthy, Niall Madden, Cormac Walsh, Alan Stanton, Pa Whyte, Padraig Nagle, Jake Hegarty, Gavin Hurley.

Senior Hurling Semi Final
All roads lead to Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Sunday next for the eagerly anticipated Senior hurling semi final where we face our neighbours Carrigtwohill. It has been a great year for both Clubs and both will fancy their chances on the day. Our relagation semi final against Carrigtwohill two years ago now seems a distant memory but we all remember how hard it was to separate the teams on that occasion. It has been 17 long years since Midleton last contested a semi final. The management team has made a huge effort to get the most out of the lads and will be hoping for another big performance. We had to work hard for our win over a very accurate Ballymartle team in the quarter final. All involved know a more impressive performance will be required if we wish to progress to the final against a Carrigtwohill team that have improved as they year has progressed. It appears that Midleton have a clean bill of health and will be at full strength other than for the suspended Ian Kennifick. Carrigtwohill will have a number of their injured players back as well. Please come along and give the team your support on the day as it does make a difference. There are Club colours available from Mary Quinn so you have no excuse. Kids are admitted free of charge so bring all the family along.

Senior Hurling League
Midleton 3-17 Sarsfields 2-11
Midleton seniors enjoyed a comfortable win over Sarsfields in the Conroy Cup senior hurling league on Thursday of last week. Midleton fielded without their minors and rested a number of other first team players. Sarsfields were also short a lot of their first team. It afforded some of Midletons subs one last chance to stake a claim for a starting place. Padraig O’keefe and John Keane will have done their chances no harm as they turned in fine performances on the night. This win leaves Midleton on 12 points with three games left to play. We will probably need to win our remaining games if we are to guarantee a place in the top six for the playoffs and give ourselves a chance to defend our title. We have to face Blackrock, Ballinhassig and St. Finnbarr’s in those three games.

Fe 15
Midleton Under 15’s scored two good back to back wins in the Football and Hurling Leagues last Friday and Saturday.
Friday evening they had a 4 – 10 to 1 – 7 victory over Nemo Rangers 2 in the Premier 2 Football league clash at Trabeg. In a strong all round performance the team played a very fast moving and focused game from the start and made excellent use of their possession to open up the Nemo defence and keep the scoreboard ticking.
Less than 24 hours later the Under 15’s togged off again to play Bishopstown in a Premier 1 Hurling league game in Midleton on Saturday afternoon. Once again Midleton came out on top in a high scoring encounter with a score of Midleton 0 – 20 to Bishopstown’s 2 – 09.
Midleton appeared to have things well under control throughout the first half and led at half time 0 -12 to 1 - 2.  The second half was a much closer affair however with Bishopstown rallying well and took a 2 point lead at 2 – 09 to 0 – 13 by the 17th minute. The last 13 minutes went Midleton’s way however as they dug deep to score 7 unanswered points to run out deserved winners by 5.
Midleton: Josh Deady; Shane Buckley; James Carroll; Luke Morrissey; Seadnaidh Smyth; Cormac Beausang; Gavin Beagnal, Conor Morgan; Brian O’Mahony; Kevin Rohan; Killian Deady; Lochlann McCarthy; Kalem Deady; Kieran Moloney;  Luke Dineen; Colin Shanahan; Rurai Morrison; Audrey Tsmanga; James O’Brien.

Fe 13
Tim Dennehy Blitz
On Sat Sept 3rd our Fe-13 Hurling panel travelled to Blackrock to take part in this annual blitz. We were grouped with the host club, Sixmilebridge from Clare and Cappaquin from Waterford for the round robin stage. In games we beat Sixmilebridge by the narrowest of margins after a low scoring contest. In our second game we played Blackrock where we lost out after what could be best described as a bruising battle. We picked a number of injuries in our third game. The loss of some players due to the earlier injuries meant we struggled to cope with another big physical side and we lost be a single point. We progressed to the plate semi-finals where we beat the second home side Carrig Dubh and then played Sixmilebridge again in the plate final. The scoreline was on this occasion reversed and we lost out here with the lads being very tired towards the end as we struggled to cope with the loss of 4 players due to injury. We ended up with just 16 available to play in the knockout stage. Thankfully none of the injuries are very serious and all the boys will be fit and well for training next week. Thanks also to the hardy supporters who came along and stayed with us throughout what turned out to be a very long day with our first game being at 12 noon and the last game finishing at 7:50pm
Our Panel on the day was - Padraig O'Brien (Capt), Eoin Moloney, Liam Franklin, Conor O'Neill, Temitayo Abdullah, Conor Evans, Kevin Mulcahy, Jordan Roche, Ryan McConville, Sean O'Leary, Christopher Shanahan, Ryan O'Reagan, Christopher Power, Shane O'Brien, Christian Daly, David Mulcahy, John O'Dywer, Jordan Roche & Adam Daly.

Eastern Championship:
We are still awaiting the winners of the semi-finale between St Catherines and Courcey Rovers before we will know a venue and time for the final of this competition.
Central Championship:
Our 1st round game will most likely go ahead away to Na Piarsaigh on Sat morning Sept 24th.

Fe 10
Half of the Midleton's Fe 10 hurlers took the south ring road to Bishopstown on Wednesday 31st August for one of the final matches in the County board league. We travelled with 14 players and played a match consisting of two 25 minute halves. Bishopstown were a strong physical side and made Midleton work hard throughout the match. Midleton however proved the stronger in both halves and gave their all in what was a performance to be proud of. With 11 players on at any time we had to use substitutes but fortunately all got good game time and a strong test.
Well done all who played.
The other half of Midleton's Fe 10 hurlers played Aghada in Rostellan on Saturday 3rd September.
Midleton travelled with 15 players for the County Board hurling league match. The format was 11 players per team and two 25 minute halves. Midleton got off to a slow start and allowed Aghada to rack up a few goals in the first 10 minutes without reply. However once the Midleton lads got up to the pace of the match things levelled out and our midfielders and forwards made some great scores themselves.
The second half went in Midleton’s favour and our lads played very well in all areas of the pitch.
Due to numbers we were required to use substitutes but each player got good game time.
Well done to all who played and our thanks go to Aghada for hosting the match.
