Juvenile Notes:

No joy for Under 14 footballers

Rebel Óg Eastern A Football Championship Killeagh-Ita’s 0-4, Inniscarra 1-6

Just a week after their hurling exit, our Under 14s turned their attention to football championship at home against Inniscarra on Friday evening last. We had played Kinsale in a league game on Monday evening and, missing five of our starting fifteen for different reasons, we had been outclassed. The fear that another hammering would be meted out to our boys on championship night was unfounded, however, as we gave a spirited display which unfortunately saw us come up just short against a talented Inniscarra side. Playing against the wind in the first half we got off to a flying start with Oisin McCarthy and Dara Motherway kicking good points in the first three minutes to give us a two point lead. Inniscarra gradually found their feet and had levelled with two frees by the eighth minute. Cúl báíre Robbie Treacy was easily our best player as he made three outstanding saves in the first half (and another in the second half) to keep us in touch, but Inniscarra added three more points to lead by 0-5 to 0-2 at half time. Unfortunately while we had some opportunities in front of goal our final kick was wayward from both play and frees and we

were unable to add to our initial points. The second half saw our team continue to work hard with George and Robert Sinclair, Karl O’Toole and David Collins winning a lot of ball, while Oisin McCarthy kicked two fantastic points from distance to reduce the gap to two points 0-6 to 0-4 with just ten minutes remaining. We had a few more attacks but couldn’t add to our tally, while Inniscarra, after some wasteful shooting of their own, scored a goal on the stroke of full time to put a gloss on the scoreboard for them – 1-6 to 0-4. A battling display from our team was not good enough on a night when the loss of Richie Landers and Daniel Lucey through injury hampered our efforts at either end of the pitch.

Team: Robbie Treacy, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Cian McDonald (Captain), Christian Coughlan, George Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy, Danny Cunningham, Karl O’Toole, Robert Sinclair, Dara Motherway ()-1), Oisin McCarthy (0-3), David Collins, Paul Delaney, Olan Broderick, David Kelly. Subs: Owen Cosgrove, Darragh O’Connor, Brian Murphy, Olan Coleman, Remy Bernard.

Mixed week for Under 11s

Our Under 11 boys had a busy week as most of them played three games in five days. The Under 12 team (with a good share of 11s playing) had a good victory over White’s Cross on Tuesday evening and the Under 11 boys then travelled to Ballynoe on Wednesday evening and defeated St. Catherine’s in a very entertaining football game. Daniel Walsh, David Buckley, Ben Budds, Rory Motherway and Conor Meade all played well to ensure that we claimed the victory. On Saturday afternoon the rain and Kiltha Óg came to Páirc Uí Chinnéide and unfortunately our visitors had the better of the battle, winning convincingly after a very strong first half. Our boys played better after half time but still had to give second best to our neighbours who have beaten us in both codes now this year.

Panel: Ben Budds, David Buckley, Conor Meade, Danny Fitzgerald, Ciaran Brennan, Darragh O’Leary, Rory Motherway, Daniel Walsh, Ben Fogarty, Evan Lane, Dylan McCarthy, Pierse Geary, Liam Considine.

Cúl Camp is on its way

Parish Sports

A reminder that the Annual Parish Sports Night for the four primary schools (Inch, Park, Kyle and Killeagh) takes place in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Monday evening next, June 8th, from 6. 30 p.m. It promises to be a great night once again, so get there early for fun and excitement!

Under 12 Hurling League

Our under 12 hurlers continued on winning ways on Tuesday evening with a good win away to White’s Cross on a score-line of 6:11 to 1:2. Playing with the aid of the hill and the wind in the first half the Killeagh lads began well and went in at half time with a big lead. The second half was a tighter affair but the score-line was never in doubt. Jamie Fogarty contributed 1:2 from centre back while Eoin Brenner had an impressive 5 points from midfield and Conor Meade poached 3 goals from full forward. The industrious David Buttimer also impressed with a 2:2 tally. This was a good performance from an understrength Killeagh side starting with six under 11s in the team and all of them performing very well.

Killeagh: Ben Budds, Jack Flanagan, George Walsh-Wallace, Rory Motherway, David Buckley, Jamie Fogarty, Rory Lynch, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Eoin Brenner, Dale McMahon, Daniel Walsh, David Buttimer, Callum Magner, Conor Meade, Ciaran Brennan. Sub: Evan Daly
