Junior C Hurling Championship Final
Midleton 0-12  Russell Rovers 1-06
Midleton Junior C hurlers won the Junior C hurling championship on Saturday evening when they had three points to spare over Russell rovers. The game was played in Caherlag. Midleton went 0-03 to 0-01 up but were pegged back to three points each. Midleton added three more points before half time to lead 0-06 to 0-03 at the interval. In the second half we continued our good form and held out for a three point victory. The Michael Foley Cup was presented to captain Brendan Ferriter. Well done to Gavin Power and his fellow selectors Mick Tobin, Cormac Quirke and Ger Lawton on a fine success for the fourth adult hurling team in the club.

Fe 21 A  County Hurling semi final
Midleton 2-15 Blackrock 0-15
Midleton came through a stern test from a fine Blackrock side at Pairc Ui Chaoimh last in the Fe 21 A county semi final on Saturday afternoon last. Midleton  started well and with Stephen Moore and Conor Lehane leading by example were good value for our six point half time lead of 1-08 to 0-05. Blackrock rallied strongly at the start of the second half and reduced the lead to two points. Midleton responded well at this stage and a succession of scores, none better than an excellent goal from substitute Mark O’Keefe put us eight points up with only minutes left. A couple of late Blackrock points meant it finished in a six point win for Midleton. It was a good team performance and sets us up for a county final appearance. Charleville and Carrigaline meet in a quarter final next weekend with the winners facing Duhallow. The final is scheduled for October 30th. Well done to all players and mentors on reaching the final and I am sure the next three weeks will see no stone left unturned as they attempt to win the title for the first time since 1989.

Fe 13
Our Fe 13 Eastern Division panel travelled to Ballinspittle to take on the home side Courcey Rovers in the League final on Sat Oct 8th. The home village was well decked out in the red and white as we travelled through but much to the disappointment of a few of our lads this was for the Premier Intermediate final the following day and not as a welcome for them. When the game got under way it was tight and competitive in the first half with the score being 2-4 to 2-2 at the break however after the turn around our boys found not one but a few extra gears and ran out very comfortable winners in the end and captured the league title to go with the championship won earlier in the year. Our panel on the day was Dylan Cahalane (capt), Eoin Hartnett, Christopher Power, Shane O'Brien, Cathal Gunning, Eoin Moloney, Cormac Higgins, David Mulcahy, Sean O'Meara, John O'Dwyer, Conor O'Neill, Tommy O'Connell, Tom Scanlon, Liam Franklin, Ryan McConville, Ryan O'Reagan, Temitayo Abdullah, Conor Evans, PJ Fitzgearld & Christian Daly.
We continue to train each Wednesday evening and we will have game coming up in the Premier Championship Semi-Final and League Qtr-Final both against near neighbors Carrigtwohill this coming weekend, venues and times to be confirmed.
Congratulations also to our mentor Martin McConville who was part of the Carrigtwohill panel which won the Senior county last week - well done from all the group Martin.

Fe 9
On Saturday the 8th our fe9 hurlers travelled to Ballincollig for a challenge match,we were short many players so we asked some fe8's to help us out and we ended up with 27 players.We picked three teams of 9 aside and played three 15mins games,this turned out to be another great day with every player getting nearly an hours hurling.Both teams put on a great display of hurling with both teams showing improvement as the year comes to an end.Thanks to Ballincollig for the game and refreshments after. Also thanks to  the parents for their support and to the fe8's who helped us out (these boys had already played a game on that morning) .Long may their enthusiasm for the game continue.Training at the HOCKEY PITCH every THURSDAY from 18.00 to 19.00 until December and SATURDAY mornings at  the GAA club  from 09.45 to 11am until the end of October.

Fe 8
Midleton's Fe 8 hurlers traveled to Killeagh last Saturday 8th October with a very strong panel. The panel was divided up to make two teams. Both teams came up against two very good Killeagh teams. The first half of the games concentrated on ground hurling, no lifting was allowed. This made for a fast and furious twenty-five minutes of hurling. The Midleton hurlers were well ahead at half time on both pitches. In the second halves the players were allowed lift the ball and strike it from their hands. This proved to be altogether different affair and the games were a lot closer. At the end of both games Midleton had just done about enough to hold on to their leads.
Thanks to all the parents and trainers who helped out on the day.
