Minor Hurling C’ship: Carrigtwohill 3-05 Killeagh-Ita’s 2-14 played in Cobh on Sunday April 20th at 6pm
Minor Hurling
Carrigtwohill 3-05 Killeagh-Ita’s 2-14 played in Cobh on Sunday April 20th at 6pm
Our minor hurlers travelled to Cobh on Sunday afternoon and took part in a lively and entertaining hurling game against Carrigtwohill. The good weather we had been having turned sour just before the start of the match and the rain made it difficult for both teams to play to their full potential. There were a couple of forced changes to the usual lineout but the lads emerged victorious although they were given a little fright near the end by a never-say-die attitude from Carrigtwohill.
It was fully five minutes before the first score of the game courtesy of a Dan Landers free. This was followed by a second Killeagh-Itas point on ten minutes from Killian Treacy from play. Carrig then came into the game and scored a commanding 1-04 to lead by five points after twenty minutes play. Killeagh-Ita’s really started to fire on all cylinders after this and saw out the first half with a stunning 1-05 without reply. Dan Landers supplied three points from two 65’s and one free, Andy Leahy contributed a point from play and Cork minor hurler Eoghan Keniry got off the mark with a well-taken goal. Dan Landers finished the scoring for the first period with an absolutely superb point from a difficult angle on the right hand side. Killeagh-Itas were now leading at the break on a score of 1-07 to 1-04 but seemed well in control of the game.
Starting the second half with two substitutes replacing injured players Killeagh-Itas were playing some great hurling but could not convert chances into scores. Carrig also missed a good few chances to score at the start of the second half and it took nearly ten minutes to open up the second half scores with a point from a Dan Landers free. Eoghan Keniry and Shane Smiddy added further points on ten and a half and eleven minutes before Carrig scored their first point on fourteen minutes. On fifteen minutes, Killian Treacy crashed the ball to the net for Killeagh-Ita’s second goal after great teamwork but also with the help of a sublime Eoghan Keniry pass. Dan Landers followed this with two points from play on nineteen and twenty minutes and Killeagh-Ita’s were in full flow. Further points from Eoghan Keniry on twenty-five and Andrew Leahy on twenty-seven minutes seemed to put Killeagh-Ita’s beyond the reach of Carrigtwohill but they started to fight back and had scored two goals and a point before the final whistle blew. Killeagh-Ita’s emerged the winners after a fine display and accepted the applause from the large crowd attending the game.
Team: D Cusack, J O’Rourke, B McCarthy, E O’Connor, D Cahill, D O’Brien, K Murphy, E Keniry, B Delaney, C Cusack, G Leahy, S Smiddy, K Treacy, D Landers, A Leahy.
Subs: C Walsh, P Delaney, C Deane, D Smiddy, S Desmond, E Murphy, K Fennelly, J Merkushev, C Coughlan, D Ogbebor, E Fitzgibbon, C Ryan-Hide, P Walsh.
