Minor Semi Final ends in a draw Stalemate in Delaneys

On Sunday evening last as Glenville and Donoughmore fought out a terrific contest in this Minor Football championship semi final. Both sides can consider themselves lucky and unlucky as both had chances to win it. Extra time again failed to separate the sides with the drama in extra time leaving the large crowd in full voice.

Colm Fentons fantastic penalty save keeping us in the hunt just before the halftime whistle in extra time which if converted would have given Donoughmore a five point cushion.

Glenvillle refused to wilt and scored four points in the second half to take the front with a minute on the clock but a late late pointed free tied the sides up again. The replay is a game not be missed with two very good football sides battling it out to see who makes the final.

Final Score Glenville 1-13 Donoughmore 0-16

Junior Football

Glenville faced a strong Aghada side in the league on Monday night last. Aghada held the advantage all through and were well in control. Glenville in fairness had a very young side on duty with the majority playing Junior for the first time the experience and introduction will be a good beginning to the players that played.

Aghada winning out 4-16 to Glenvilles 2-7. Glenville are out on this Wednesday Sept 28th in the first round of the Junior BFC. This game is on in Fouhy Park under lights with Midleton the opposition. Time for this game is 7.45pm.

The U16 Footballers succumbed to a very strong Aghabullogue in the first round of the championship. Glenville were well in the game up to 10 mins to go when trailing by a goal .

At this point a gilt edged chance went a begging when we hit the post which would have levelled the game but a late goal flurry gave Aghabullogue a flattering 3-13 to 2-7 win. Glenville performed well below par on the night but will have better days in the future.

The team are unbeaten in the league and will qualify for the semi finals at a later date. So all is not lost yet. Ian o Leary received a serious injury in this game and we wish him the best on his road to recovery.

The U14 Footballers play Macroom in the league final next Sunday .Time for ths game is still unknown so check locally for details.

The U12 also have qualified for the Final with two great wins over the past week, against Mayfield and Aghada. Both games were of the highest quality and our lads performed with great skill and aggression to forge out great results.

The final v Mitchelstown promises to be a cracker with two good sides battling it out. Another game not to be missed.

Well done to the Cork ladies footballers on their great win over Monaghan last weekend in Croke Park. Eamon Ryan again with the golden touch steering the girls to glory with Laura Cronin involved in the subs.

Congratulations to both on a wonderful achievement.
