U21 East Cork ‘B’ Hurling Semi-Final

Castlegoold 0-11 (11)
Watergrasshill 2-17 (23)
At Midleton
12th August 2013

It’s all over for our under 21’s as they crashed out of the championship to a simply superb display of hurling from Watergrasshill. A devastating spell in the first 12 minutes which had the score as 1-7 to 0-1 was a clear sign that this game was over. Scoring at will, there’s was little our lads can do as points from angles were sailing over the bar to the delight of their following. To be fair to our fellas they battled gamely throughout the hour, but it was that start that proved the difference. Brendan Flynn, Barry Lawton, John Cashman and John McCarthy did their upmost to stem the tide but to no prevail. At the short whistle it was daunting task ahead of them.

The second half saw a much better, solid and respectful performance in which they did their best to cut into the lead but ‘the hill’ held their guard and closed out the game superbly. Watergrasshill were the better team on the night and fully deserve their place in the final. They will play Fr O’Neills in this final in the coming weeks, which will be a cracking final; we wish them the best in this. For our boys, well they had a good season but could have been much more. They will have something to build on as they will only lose two players for next year. It’s case of a move on and plan for 2014.

JHL Division 4

Lisgoold 0-8 (8)
Bride Rovers 2-14 (20)
At Rathcormac
9th August 2013

The second team were soundly beaten by a much more hungrier Rathcormac team last week. It was a tight enough match at the three-quarter mark 0-8 apiece, however due to grads, holidays and work commitments we only had fifteen players and this is a twenty man game. Tiredness crept in and eventually the rovers clicked and the floodgates opened. We had some good performances with Mike Mulcahy, Bill Whelan and Kieran Barry doing well. However Bride Rovers fully deserved their win and while it was disappointing end to the campaign, our boys can be delighted on the mass improvement they made from last season. The will have championship coming up in the next few weeks against Russell Rovers (Who qualified for this league final) and going by their league result against them, no doubt they will be up against it. One does hope that they will be able to put in a decent performance in this year’s Championship.

JFL Division 4

Lisgoold 0-8 (8)
Russell Rovers 4-12 (24)
At Lisgoold
25th August 2013

A comprehensive victory for the vistors here, as they swatted away our second team with minimum fuss. It’s always hard for a second team to take on a first team, but with us depleted to a bear seventeen players we had to just get on with and play the game. Russell Rovers dominated with Eoin Ivers, JP Ivers and Kieran Scanlon were playing well for Russell Rovers. John O’Shea, Charlie McCarthy and Charles Smart did well for Lisgoold but to be honest it was a mis-match from start to finish as the Shanagarry men collected the points on offer.

JFL Division 4

Lisgoold 1-4 (7)
Glenville 2-11 (17)
At Glenville
28th August 2013

The second team ended their league campaign with another heavy defeat and finished with the ‘wooden spoon’ although one must say that playing with nearly a different fifteen from the team that togged out against Russell Rovers one wonders would some results be different if we had a full panel for every league game. However in spite of this we made the short journey to Fouhy Park, for our last league encounter for 2013 were those who were spectators were treated to a poor encounter. The first half was very poor as both sides were guilty of basic mistakes and poor shooting.

The second half was a better improvement from both teams but Glenville with a stronger panel showed their skill and know-how to take the two points on offer with a slick passing game in which paid dividends with some lovely scores. Dave Barry, Bill Whelan and Noel O’Riordan did well but it wasn’t enough. There is some hope for the second team footballers but they need all to be made available if they want to have an impact in this years championship. So, we now face a waiting game as went into our championship will actually be played off, which is quite frustrating as it will more likely be October before our boys will see championship. This can only be seen as farcical to have it so late in the year but that would be a matter for discussion later on in the year at the end of season.
