Mixed Fortunes for U13/U14 Footballers
Our U13 & U14 squads, under the tutelage of Tom, Sean and Paul, both had league games this past week, with mixed fortunes. Our Under 13 team travelled to Castlemartyr on Monday evening to take on Kiltha Óg and an exciting game saw us win by 5-9 to 5-6. Richie Landers was the match winner, scoring a spectacular goal in the 59th minute to turn a 2-point deficit into a one-point lead, and for good measure man-of-the match Karl O’Toole added a point as did Richie again, to leave us three ahead at the final whistle. Darragh O’Connor was also a contender for man-of-the match with 3-1 from play, with great teamwork and excellent finishing being the hallmark of the goals. David Kelly kicked two fine points from frees and a great goal and Dara Motherway got our opening score, while in defence Daniel Lucey and Cathal Fitzgibbon were excellent in the full-back line, while Danny Cunningham and Robert Sinclair had very solid games in the half-back line.
Team: James O’Shea-Fleming, Owen Cosgrove, Daniel Lucey, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Danny Cunningham, Robert Sinclair, George Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy, Karl O’Toole (0-2), Dara Motherway (0-1), Richie Landers (1-3), David Kelly (1-2, 0-2f), Darragh O’Connor (3-1), Jonathan Guerin, Olan Coleman. Subs: Oisin McCarthy, Aaron O’Connell.

The scoreline against Youghal in Friday night’s U14 football league game would have won us the points in Monday’s game, and in most games, but was not enough to win this unusual game. We saw 13 goals and 11 points altogether, a missed penalty, and at least 4 more missed goal chances for each team. Suffice to say it was attack, attack, attack! Our team started very slowly and were 2-3 to 0-0 down after just six minutes, and in spite of some forays up to the Youghal goal, we failed to score until the fourteenth minute when Padraig Leahy got our first point. Dylan Hogan, in his first game at full-forward, then started to do damage, scoring two goals in the first half, with Jack Wyse adding another. However, two soft goals conceded just before half-time gave Youghal a 4-5 to 3-1 cushion. In the second half we added more goals from Dylan and a Richie Long penalty and Darragh O’Connor, with points from Richie (2) and Dylan, but Youghal kept their scoreboard going as well with a further 3-2 of their own, to maintain their advantage. Much work to be done on the training pitch before championship in a few weeks!
Team: Olin Hennessy, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Daniel Lucey, James Kent, Barry Motherway, Adrian Galvin, Kieran Daly, Jack Wyse (1-0), Liam McCarthy, Richie Long (1-2), Ryan McCarthy, Padraig Leahy (0-1), Richie Landers, Dylan Hogan (3-1), Cian McDonald. Subs: Darragh Geary, George Sinclair, Danny Cunningham, Robert Sinclair, Andrew Foley, Darragh O’Connor (1-0).

Fé 15 Super Touch Hurling Blitz A Great Success
On Saturday last 4 teams came to Páirc Uí Chinnéide for the Munster GAA Super Touch 10-a-side Hurling Blitz. Killeagh-Ita’s were joined by Cork teams Douglas and Fr. O’Neill’s and by Tramore from Co. Waterford. All games were keenly contested with only a few points separating the sides in each of the round-robin games. Killeagh-Ita’s boys hurled really well, under direction from Ger, Tomás and Richie, winning their first two games against Tramore (1-4 to 0-4) and Fr. O’Neill’s (2-4 to 1-4). In the final game they led 2013 All-Ireland Féile runners-up Douglas by 2-2 to 1-3 at half-time but had to settle for a 4-point defeat at the end, losing out by 2-8 to 2-4. Douglas qualified for the finals in Mallow but well done to our team’s gallant efforts. Many thanks also to the parents of the boys who brought sandwiches and food to feed all four team and the travelling supporters, and helped with the catering after the six games were completed. Your help and support is vital!
Team: Fionn McDonnell, Barry Motherway, Jamie Clifford, Dylan Hogan, Daniel Hickey, Jamie Landers, Shane Kearney, Sean Walsh, Padraig Leahy, Richie Long, Darragh Geary, Adrian Galvin, Olin Hennessy.

Sciath na Scol
Killeagh NS (boy’s team and girl’s team) and Inch NS (boys and girls team) all played in the Sciath na Scol hurling and camogie finals this week with mixed fortunes. Killeagh boys played first on Wednesday at 1pm in Pairc Ui Rinn where they were up against neighbours Clonpriest NS. They played very well throughout the game and won out on a score of4-09 to 0-01. Goals from Robert Sinclair (2), Ryan McCarthy and Adam Danagher paved the way for joint captains Ben O’Connor and Paul Delaney to lift the trophies with great joy. Killeagh girls were on at 2pm also in Pairc Ui Rinn on the same day where their opponents were also Clonpriest NS. Like their male counterparts, they played very well throughout and won out easily on a score of 5-01 to 0-00. Goals from Aimee Kearney (3), Joanna Keniry and Niamh O’Connor sealed a well earned victory for the girls in this final. Captain Grainne Landers and vice captain Chloe Motherway received the trophies on behalf of their jubilant teammates and supporters. It was a fantastic achievement for the school so well done to all the players, schoolchildren, teachers and parents who enjoyed a wonderful day and commiserations to a valiant Clonpriest NS who had to endure the heartache of losing two finals in one day. On Thursday, Inch NS played Dungourney NS but unfortunately lost out at Pairc Ui Chaoimh. The final score on the day was 5-05 to 2-04.
