Junior ‘A’ Football Final - Jim Ryan Cup: Glenbower Rovers 1-06 Lisgoold 1-06
The final of this year’s competition was played under lights on Saturday evening, October 5th at Pairc Seamus De Barra in Carrigtwohill. It was a very pleasant evening for the large number of supporters from both sides who travelled to cheer on their respective teams. Glenbower Rovers were the defending champions and seeking their third in a row title while Lisgoold were seeking their very first title. It proved to be a very tight game on the night as both sides fought hard in pursuit of victory and ended on a draw after extra-time. Glenbower were forced into a couple of changes from their original line-out due to injuries to key personnel while Lisgoold played as listed on the programme.
The game commenced at 7.30pm and it was a further twelve minutes before the first score was registered. It was a point for Lisgoold from a free taken by John Cashman. Glenbower got on the scoreboard after eighteen minutes when they also pointed from a free which was taken by Kieran Lane. Lisgoold edged ahead on twenty-one minutes with a point from another free by Cashman. Shortly after, Glenbower lost the influential Joe Deane through injury and he was replaced by Stephen Murphy. Lisgoold further increased their lead with points from a Cashman free on twenty-five mins and a point from play by Pa O’Mahony on twenty-eight mins. Glenbower fought back and John O’Connor found the net following a free by the hard-working Kieran Lane. A skirmish erupted in front of the Lisgoold goalmouth after the goal and following consultation with his officials, the referee issued a number of yellow cards and unfortunately for Glenbower, Brendan Barry received his second yellow of the match and was sent to the line. Kieran Lane, who had a fabulous game, completed the scoring of the first half with another pointed free to leave Glenbower ahead at the break on a score of Glenbower Rovers 1-02 to Lisgoold’s 0-04. The second half was going to be a serious test for the reigning champions as they had to play with fourteen men against the fifteen of Lisgoold. They acquitted themselves very well and the whole team worked flat out to restrict the Lisgoold men to just two points in the second half. However, they were unable to turn pressure and possession into scores for themselves and only managed to add one point to their first half tally. It was a well taken point from play by substitute Cian Fogarty and gave Glenbower the lead by one point on eleven minutes. However Lisgoold drew level on twenty-two minutes and at the final whistle, the teams were level with Glenbower scoring 1-03 to Lisgoold’s 0-06. Twenty minutes of extra time was played and both teams fought hard to try to gain victory. Glenbower, now restored to fifteen men, were first to score with a point from Stephen Murphy following a quickly taken free by Kieran Lane. This proved to be the only score of the first ten minute period and the final period of extra time commenced with Glenbower holding a one point lead.  However, after only a minute of play, Lisgoold scored a fortuitous goal to forge ahead by two points. This forced Glenbower to dig deep and a minute later they reduced the deficit to a single point when that man, Kieran Lane, scored a great point from play. Glenbower continued to fight hard and soaked up immense Lisgoold pressure to stay in the hunt. They also, to a man, put Lisgoold under pressure as they went in pursuit of a score. That pressure and good play saw them awarded a free in injury time. It was away to the right hand side of the Lisgoold goal and the supporters stayed silent as Kieran Lane took possession of the ball while the referee waved away the Lisgoold players’ protests. Lane placed the ball and stepped back to view the strike before calmly slotting it cleanly over the bar to level the scores. The referee blew the whistle to end the match after the kick-out and both teams will have to meet again to decide who will win this year’s East Cork Junior ‘A’ Football Championship.

PARISH LEAGUES TAKE CENTRE STAGE
Week 2 of our Under 10 Parish Leagues saw four great games again last Tuesday evening. This week we started with hurling and Jamie Fogarty’s Yellow Team overcame Colm Treacy’s Green Team by 5-1 to 1-5. Dale McMahon was once again busy scoring, while Jamie and Colm had a great battle up and down the pitch. The Orange Team, superbly led by Paudie Mackey, had the upper hand throughout against Eoin Brenner’s Blue Team, winning by 4-2 to 0-4, despite the best efforts of Darragh O’Leary in defence for the Blues.  It was on to football then, where the Yellows and Oranges had a great game, with loads of goals. Eventually Aaron Fitzgibbon’s Yellow Team overcame Colm Landers’ Blue Team by 8-1 to 5-1. In the other game, Evan Lane’s Blue Team defeated David Buttimer’s Green Team, for whom Conor Meade once again starred, by 10-3 to 3-1, with Eoin Brenner scoring some classy goals. Next week sees our finals, with reports to follow.

Adam Danaher scored a fine goal for the Greens, while Robbie Treacy was imperious at full-back for the Greens, despite the best efforts of David Collins, Cian and Daniel Lucey. In the other game, Richie Landers captained the Yellow Team and he tried his heart out from start to finish, as did Owen Cosgrove and Paudie Mackey, but the Blues, captained by Robert Sinclair, won by 4-6 to 1-4, having led by 2-3 to 0-2 at half-time. Paul Delaney, goalkeeper Aaron O’Connell, and Eoin Brenner, along with Robert, played key roles in the Blues’ victory.

UNDER 15 HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP
Killeagh-Ita’s 2-14, Ballincollig 3-12
Heartbreak for our Under 15 hurlers in the Rebel Óg Premier 1 Championship as we bowed out at the first hurdle, losing by the minimum at home to a committed Ballincollig side on Saturday afternoon last. Our opponents got their three goals at opportune times, and this gave them the slight edge over us. Their first came after a minute, when a mix-up in our goalmouth was punished by their corner-forward, giving them an early lead. They held this throughout the first half, although Killian Treacy’s fine goal on 23 minutes reduced the margin to two points, 1-7 to 1-5. However, a goal from a 20-metre free just before half-time gave them a four point lead, 2-7 to 1-6, at the break. Playing with the wind in the second half, our boys took control of the game for the first 15 minutes, and led by 2-10 to 2-9 after Killan’s second goal. Shane Kearney added a fine point, but Ballincollig replied with two points and a third goal in the 49th minute, despite Aaron Walsh’s  brilliant save just prior to the goal. Leading by 3-11 to 2-11, Ballincollig held out as we responded with two points, before they pushed the lead out to two again. We then had three wides from scoreable positions, before David Ogbebor’s late chance was deflected over for a point. That left us just one behind ag deireadh an chluiche. Hard luck boys, it’s never easy when you lose by one!
Team: Aaron Walsh, Jamie Landers, Luke Fogarty, Daniel Hickey, Emmet Barron, Kevin Murphy (0-2 from 65’s), Fergal Smiddy, Christian Coughlan, Cathal Deane, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Jack O’Rourke (0-1), Keane Budds, David Ogbebor (0-1), Killian Treacy (2-9, 0-5 frees), Shane Kearney (0-1).

Killeagh and Bride Rovers served up a very entertaining match which was played under lights in Pairc Ui Chinneide, Killeagh, on Thursday, Sept 26th at 8.00pm. There was a great performance given by the Killeagh team on the night but they just could not see out the game and faded out near the end to let Rovers claim victory and progress to the semi-final stage of the competition. There was a good turnout of players for this squad and the delighted management team commended them on both their attendance and performance on the night.

JUVENILE NEWS
PARISH LEAGUES CONTINUE TO THRILL
Year after year our Parish Leagues throw up thrills and skills, excitement and enticement – we want more! (And that’s just the parents on the sideline!). This year is no different, as our double round of football and hurling games on Tuesday last had all of what we have come to expect in our Parish League games. It was football first this week, and our two games saw great scores, saves, tackling and soloing. The Yellow Team, led by Aaron Fitzgibbon, defeated David Buttimer’s Green Team by 5-8 to 2-5, although their lead at half-time was just a single point – 1-3 to 1-2. Dale McMahon assisted his captain in doing most of the scoring, while Conor Meade was heroic for the valiant Greens. In the other game, Evan Lane’s Blue Team had to manage without their Ratheniska-bound captain, but Eoin Brenner and Pearse Geary were in top form at the scoring end, while Rory Motherway made two great saves at his end to ensure that they were just ahead, by 3-5 to 3-4, when the final whistle blew. David Buckley and Paudie Mackey were terrific for the Orange Team, who were themselves hampered by an injury to their captain Colm Landers. 

On to the hurling matches then, after a quick turn-around, and the clock was ticking as the light began to fade. Floodlights or flourescent sliotar? We escaped for this week, just about! The Green and Red Teams, inspired by their respective captains Colm Treacy and Paudie Mackey, played out a thrilling draw, with the Green Team haivng 5-9 and the Red Team 7-3 ag deireadh an chluiche. Two of the younger players shone in this game, with Daniel Walsh (U-9) for the Greens and Colm Leahy (U-8) for the Reds getting loads of ‘plays’ and scores! In the other match, Eoin Brenner’s Blues battled bravely against the numerically-superior Yellows, and held the lead early on with a goal by Darragh O’Leary. By half-time, the Yellows had got on top, leading by 2-3 to 1-2, with captain Jamie Fogarty scoring 1-2. The Blues battled on gamely but the Yellows consolidated their lead sa dara leath with goals by Aaron Fitzgibbon and Dale McMahon to win by 4-5 to 1-3. Next Tuesday we do it all over again, and we can’t wait!

Orange Team: Paudie Mackey (hurling captain), Colm Landers (football captain), Ian Landers, David Buckley, Ben Fogarty, Tommy Morrison, Colm Leahy, Sean O’Riordan, Ruairi Mackey – manager Declan Fogarty.
Green Team: Colm Treacy (hurling captain), David Buttimer (football captain), Jack Flanagan, Daniel Walsh, Conor Meade, Danny Fitzgerald, Callum Martin White, Dylan McCarthy, Eoin Kelly – manager Tom Kelly.

UNDER 15 HURLING
Blackrock 4-18, Killeagh-Ita’s 1-12
Our Under 15 hurlers headed to the city lights on Tuesday evening last to play the famed ‘Rockies’. Short a number of our players through injury, unavailability and ‘the ploughing’, our boys hurled well throughout and the final score didn’t do justice to our efforts, with Blackrock closing out the game with a late flurry or scoeres. Championship is up next for our Under 15’s – we face Ballincollig at home next weekend. Report to follow – good luck boys!

WELL DONE SEAMIE – and RYAN!
Seamie Harnedy did himself proud once again on Saturday evening in probably the greatest All-Ireland Final ever played, and was truly heroic, as were his team-mates, in defeat. May 2014 bring greater reward for your trojan efforts, Seamie! Well done also to Ryan McCarthy who acquitted himself very well in the Go Games half-time exhibition in front of the 82276 lucky enough to be present – we hope that Ryan will return to play on Croke Park’s sod in future years, and who knows, maybe around 2021, tog out alongside Seamie on an All-Ireland winning Cork squad!
