Allianz National Hurling League

The second round of the Allianz Hurling League saw Cork take on Clare last Saturday night before a fine crowd in Pairc Ui Rinn. Cork’s performance was much better than in the Kilkenny game and they deservedly ran out convincing winners by 1-24 to 0-17. Conor Lehane played at left half forward and scored 0-04 and Luke O’Farrell played at full forward and finished with 1-01, Killan Burke was an unused substitute. Cork’s next league game is away to Galway on March 15th @ 2pm.

Fe14

Our Fe14 footballers players their second Premier 2 League game in a cold, wet & windswept Mallow on Saturday morning. Short on numbers, we etched out a good away win on a final scoreline of Mallow 2-07 Midleton 4-06. Although the weather conditions meant that this game proved to be a game of 2 halves, some very good team play & scoring resulted in us picking up the points. Playing with the aid of the 1st half conditions, we led 2-04 to 0-02 at half-time. The expected Mallow onslaught followed, yet some very important scores against the wind ensured that we would not be caught, despite the efforts of a gallant Mallow side. All-in-all, this proved a very worthwhile outing, with our players on display acquitting themselves very well. Midleton were represented on the day by the following players:- Leo Hennessey, Tim O'Sullivan, Rory Donegan, Aaron Mulcahy, Patrick Kane, Dan O'Sullivan, Paul Connaughton, David Scanlon, Cian Crowley, Gary Carroll, Frank O'Brien, Shane Connor, Samuel Quirke, Christian Murphy, Eabhan deBarra, Conor Fitzgerald, Ethan Daly, James Gillespie, Adam Meade.
