Midleton Hurling & Football Notes

   
Junior Hurling
Our junior hurlers had a very fine victory in the Imokilly/Avondhu League game against Castlemartyr last Friday evening in Midleton.
In the first half we played some splendid hurling and fine points from Killian Hurley, Padraig Nagle, Padriag O Keeffe and Michael Abernethy had us ahead at the half hour by 0.10 v 0.06. The visitors came back into the game in the second half with a few early points but an opportunist goal from Michael Abernethy finished off the game as a contest. Final score Midleton 1-15 v 1.11.
Team: Christopher Dunlea, Eoin Ferriter, Oisin Cotter, Liam Clohessey, Darren Quirke, Billy O Shea, Eoin Walsh, Shane Ryan, Elliot Mulcahy, Padraig O Keeffe (0-03), Padraig O Shea (0-01), Brian O Sullivan, Padraig Nagle (0-04), Killian Hurley (0-05) & Michael Abernethy (1-02).
