Lisgoold News

27 July, 2009


So, it’s all systems go for the Cork footballers as they will clash with the men from Donegal this weekend so best of luck to the Rebels and also to the Rebelettes (Cork Camogie) as they will be playing Tipperary in Pairc Ui Rinn, on Saturday, with a place in the All-Ireland semi-finals at stake. So, best of luck to all cork teams this weekend. In Lisgoold, our minors are one game away from making a little bit of history, as they crushed Carrignavar in the MHC semi-final to qualify for the final. The will be aiming to be the first Lisgoold minor team to capture a championship hurling title, our juniors had their game against Sarsfields called off, so it was back to training for the week. Killian Kingston deserves a mention after helping the minors at full-back last Thursday, he then proceeded to capture the Munster U-18 in Road bowling over the weekend, the All-Ireland takes place in Armagh this weekend – Best of luck Killian. Also our congratulations have to go to the junior ladies footballers who finally landed a win against Ballinacurra last Sunday morning. Noel Connery was a proud manager coming off the field as they beat ‘the village’ 6-8 to 0-1. Well done ladies it is a win very well earned and very well deserved.

MBHC July 23rd

Lisgoold 4-19 (31)

Carrignavar 0-8 (8)

A good, strong Lisgoold following was had as our minors pulled off a (surprisingly) easy win against Carrignavar in a sun-kissed Rathcormac last Thursday night, playing with great confidence and determination our lads annihilated what has to be said a poor, disjointed Carrignavar side, with only the likes Chris Dorgan and John Crowley the score-line could have been even worse for the boys from Carrignavar. This Lisgoold side to be fair was as at a different level this night and the result was never in doubt from the 11th minute on. John Cronin (Man of the Match), Alan Conroy, Rob Smart, Jamie Woods and Keith Flynn were the pick of our young guns as thy dominated from the off. Jamie Woods hit the ground running as he slotted over the first few scores, Chris Dorgan from Carrignavar brought his team back into contention with a few frees and it looked like a tight game was on the cards – this (unfortunately from a neutral point of view) didn’t happen when Jamie banged in the first goal in the 11thminute that was that and the floodgates opened. Some lovely scores were taken by John Cashman, John McCarthy and a lovely goal by Cathal Cashman. At half-time score read 2-13 to 0-2, enough said. The second half was a formality as Lisgoold played out the game at a leisurely pace with Rob Smart squeezing in two goals from long-distance. It was a good team performance and our lads can be satisfied that they played well, but a wide tally of 21 is not good reading and if they are to take the title from the favourites, Watergrasshill in a few weeks time, they must be more accurate in front of the goals. Manager Dermot McCarthy was delighted with this performance and stated to say “It’s a great win I would like to think we played well for the whole sixty minutes, some of the performances tonight were outstanding, particularly in the backs however ‘The Hill’ are a different kettle of fish so we will have to up the ante in training to win this championship”. They will now aim to win a first minor hurling championship for the club in the coming weeks. Referee was Mark Murphy from Bride Rovers

U16 Hurling League July 26th

Lisgoold 10-15 [45]

Midleton 3-8 [17]

Our under 16 hurlers had a very satisfying afternoon last Sunday as the destroyed Midleton’s second string in the U16 league. John Cashman must have set some kind of a club record as he recorded 10-3, and with John McCarthy, Mikey Savage and Bill Whelan coming to the fore, Lisgoold were comfortable throughout the hour. With championship coming up in a few weeks time, things are looking good for the Under 16’s.
