Fé 14 Iomáint Killeagh-Ita’s 4-15, Tracton 4-7

Killeagh-Ita’s Under 14 hurlers booked their ‘Passage’ into the quarter final of the Rebel Óg Eastern Region ‘A’ Hurling Championship after a gutsy and skilful performance against Tracton on Thursday evening last in Passage West. This was a great game of hurling with both sides giving their very best, and it was unfortunate that there had to be a loser on the night. Our greater point scoring ability was ultimately the difference between the sides, but we never had it easy at any stage. On a fine evening, the wind was a deciding factor, and when captain Sean Walsh lost the toss and we had to play against the wind for the first half, our mentors feared that we would be too far behind at half time. Their fears were compounded when Tracton hit the net with a free from their first attack of the game, although Keane Budds and Sean Walsh from a free reduced the margin to a single point after 12 minutes. Tracton responded with a point but then Dara Motherway struck our first goal and we led briefly. Tracton came back with a second goal after 22 minutes, and we required accurate free-taking from Sean Walsh to keep us in touch. Our forwards were winning lots of possession but failing to turn it into scores, and the sides were level coming towards half time, when Tracton got in for their third goal. Luckily for us, a point from Keane Budds from a ‘21’ was followed by a timely injury-time goal from Richie Long and we led by the minimum (2-8 to 3-4) when the half-time whistle blew. The second half saw Tracton get off to a good start against the wind with two points from frees to go ahead, but Richie’s second green flag after 34 minutes gave us a two point lead, a lead we never relinquished until the end. Six points in a row from Keane (2), Sean (2), Shane Kearney and Richie put us in the driving seat, but Tracton were not beaten and they got in for a fourth goal after 49 minutes to narrow the gap to five points (3-14 to 4-6). Squeaky bum time!! Our defence were under pressure now and our forwards were not getting much ball, and we went ten minutes without scoring as our backs dealt with a siege. The crucial score came in the 56th minute when Sean Walsh scored a great goal after a fine run through the middle, and Richie Long added an insurance point in the final minute. Well done to all the team, with Shane Kearney, Keane Budds and Sean Walsh the leaders who inspired the younger players around them. It was worth noting that our finishing full-forward line of Dara, Ryan and Cathal are all Under 12 players, so it’s a good start to their championship records!
Team: Fionn McDonnell, Barry Motherway, Dylan Hogan, Cian Mc Donald, Alec Fitzgerald, Daniel Hickey, Shane Kearney (0-1, ’65), Padraig Leahy, Keane Budds (0-4, 0-1f), Richie Long (2-2), Sean Walsh (capt, 1-8, 0-7f), Ryan McCarthy, Dara Motherway (1-0), Adrian Galvin, Olin Hennessy. Subs: Cathal Fitzgibbon, Andrew Foley, Kieran Daly, Darragh Geary, James Kent, Mark O’Callaghan.

Fé 10 Peil falls foul of the weather
Our Under 10 footballers were disappointed on Saturday morning when their football blitz in Aghada was cancelled at the last minute after the heavy rain of Friday evening and Saturday morning. It will make them all the more eager for the next day out!

Fé 11 boys are busy!
Our U11 footballers had a great win over Youghal in Youghal on a scoreline of 7-8 to 3-4 on Thursday 30th May. Numbers were short so we called up two U10's, Jamie Fogarty and Paudie Mackey, who were superb on the night - a big thank you to both of them. We weren’t at our best in the first half and were two goals down at half time. After a stiff half time talk from the manager, the second half really livened up, with our boys showing great determination, heart and a fantastic team effort from everyone. As a result we managed to dominate the second half and won the game. Well done lads.
Team: David Scully, Ryan Farquhar, James Fogarty, Daniel Doherty, Robbie Treacy, Pádraig Landers, Ben O'Connor, Ciarán Leahy, Paudie Mackey, Adam Donaher, Paul Kent, Remy Bernard.

On Saturday 8th June our U11's travelled to Ahavine to play Fr. O'Neill’s in the hurling league and won on a scoreline of 4-8 to 2-3. On a beautiful sunny morning from our panel of 17 we had a full squad, thanks to all the parents for the effort. Unfortunately Fr. O'Neill’s had only 11 players so we had to keep rotating our players. A big thank you to Ger Scully for co-ordinating this on the line for us. Behind again at half time we went on to win a great game – we seem to be finishing our games strongly each day.

Team.: Ryan Farquhar, Ben Jennings, Brian Murphy, Christian Coughlan, Robbie Treacy, Dan Doherty, Pádraig Landers, Ben O'Connor, Darragh Coleman, Remi Bernard, Ciarán Leahy, Paul Kent, Darragh Buckley, Tony McCarthy, David Scully, Ciarán O'Rourke and David Collins. Scorers: Robbie Treacy 0-1, Ben O'Connor 1-3, Ciarán Leahy 3-4.
