Glenville GAA News

With the sun beaming down on Saturday evening last Glenville and Carrigtwohill minor footballers produced a very entertaining game of open football in the fifth round of the league.

Dean Cronin opened the scoring with a well taken point with Ben Halbert adding another a minute later. Carrig looked dangerous on the break and opened their account with a pointed free, before Shane o Regan punched a good score after a good run.

Scores were coming thick and fast at either end. Kevin o Neill opened up a bit of daylight between the sides when he was on the end of a great move to send a great shot to the roof of the net from 25 yards out.

Carrig halted Glenvilles momentum with a goal and two points before half time leaving it 1-7 each at the whistle for the end of the first half. An exhibition of long range point scoring from Dean Cronin and Brendan Maloney was the feature of the second half as the white flag was raised aloft seven times inside the opening fifteen minutes of the second half, pushing us 1-14 to 1-8 ahead.

Ben Halbert and Kevin o Neill goaled again but in fairness Carrig kicked some super scores of their own in this half keeping the game entertaining til the end. Glenville eventually winning out by 3-18 to 1-14 scoreline.

This is the last minor game now for a while with exam time here again and we wish everyone involved with exams the best of luck.

The Junior Footballers had a game v White Cross on Monday night in Glenville. Whites Cross were that bit stronger on the night and won out in the finish by 2-11 to 0-9 eventhough they was good performances from Joe Colloty, Mossie Keane, Willie Connolly, Brian Cosgrove Noel Cahill and JJ Kearney. Intermediate prepare for upcoming championship.

Preparations came to a conclusion to Glenvilles championship tie with Mallow on Sunday next when visiting Newcestown and reigning County Champions provided us with a great test. Newcestown showed us how it was done in the opening half as we struggled to come to terms with the pace of our opponents.

Trailing 0-8 to 0-2 at half time Glenville were a transformed side in the second half as we dominated the half only to come up short at the finish with a number of easy chances going astray towards the end. Newcestown closing out the game with two late scores to win by three.

Still this was a very useful and worthwhile exercise for Sundays game and we went into this game minus Eoin o Reilly, Ger Cahill Eoin Barry and John Halbert. Hopefully these injuries will have cleared up in time for Sunday.

On Friday night then the U11 and U10 sides played host to Glanmire again in Fouhy Park. A great battle was had by both sets of players on a beautiful evening and everyone enjoyed the games.
