u14 Footballers

Cobh 3-1, Kilmurray 10-11
Cobh rarely got out of first gear in this league game against last years league winners who had great intent following our victory against them a year ago in the football championship. From the start Kilmurray launched attack after attack, and with the benefit of a strong wind had built up a commanding  7-6 to 1-0 half time lead. The second half was a more even affair with Kilmurray adding a further 3-5 to Cobh's 2-1. Overall great credit to our lads for lifting their game in the second half.

Sciath na Scoil

Gaelscoil Uí Eígeartaigh had a great win in a recent indoor hurling competition that was held in Carrigtwohill. The boys topped their group with a great win over Gaelscoil Youghal and a 3-3 draw win with Watergrasshill. They defeated Walterstown in a hard fought semi-final before going on to play Killagh in the final. The final proved to be a thriller, it finished 2-2 in normal time so the game went on to extra time where the golden goal rule applied. After 5 minutes of high drama and suspense Gaelscoil úi Eigeartaigh finally made the breakthrough when Tomás ó Muirthile rifled the ball to the net, to set off great scenes of celebration. The Gaelscoil had some great performances on the day but it was really a fantastic team effort with all boys on the panel making a big contribution to this great victory. The boys will now be playing in the county finals in the middle of March.
