Midleton Hurling & Football Notes

Senior Hurling
In preparation for our up and coming Championship game Carrigtwohill kindly gave us the use of their field and Bishopstown obliged by playing our RedFM league game last Sunday morning.
Both teams were missing a few regulars but featured their inter county players in what turned out to be a very high scoring game in perfect conditions. We led at halftime by 1.13 v 1-08 and in the second half uped the tempo even further and surged into a very commanding lead. They fought to the very end and were rewarded with some late scores. Overall we will be quiet happy with the performance and most importantly we avoided any injury’s. We now look forward to the Championship game v Douglas on Sunday week   
Final Score: Midleton 4-18 v Bishopstown 3-15
Team: Tommy Wallis, Alwyn Kearney, Patrick O Mahony, Elliot Mulcahy, Seamus O Farrell, Finbar O Mahony, James Nagle, Paul Haughney, Peter Dowling, Conor Lehane, Padraig O Shea, Padraig O Keeffe, Patrick White, Luke O Farrell & Ian Kennefick. Sub used Leslie Coughlan for Paul Haughney. 

Junior Hurling
Last Friday evening in Carrigtwohill our Junior 2 hurlers played the hosts in the East Cork Hurling league and despite a brave effort over the hour we lost out on a score of 2-16 2-09.
Team: Coran Swayne, Pat Stack, Pat Fox, Joe Collins, Niall O Regan, Colm Leahy, Liam Clohessy, Shane Ryan, Gavin Hurley, Brendan Ferriter, Keith Ryan, Phillip O Neill, Willie O Brien, Sean Corcoran & Ian Fitzpatrick. Subs used Paul O Brien & Paul Ahearne.

Minor Hurling
Our Minors defeated Fermoy away last Friday evening in the 12 a side non exam League. It was a very even game throughout but we defended well and held out for a good victory.
Final Score: Fermoy 1-13 v Midleton 1-15
Team: Byran Rossiter, Luke Morrissey, Gavin Bagnell, Josh Deady, Luke Dineen, Cillian Lynch, Sean O Farrell, Lochlinn Mc Carthy, Patrice Tschmanga, Kevin Rohan, Ciaran Maloney & Brian O Mahony subs used Killian Deady & Padraig O Brien.

St Colman's Community College Field
With the kind permission and co operation of School Principal Mr. Gerry Kelly we have recently completed development works to the general playing area. Works included the cleaning/clearing up of the general area, the car park area was cleared and blinding was put down, netting was put up behind the goals at the St Marys end and a 40ft container has now been put in place to act as dressing rooms and a store. Many thanks to all our club members and supporters who assisted with these works. The executive of the club has invested quite a lot of finance in preparing this facility and hopes it will be utilised for matches and training immediately. Bookings can be made on the Club notice board at the GAA Club.
