Hurling/Football Fixtures and Results;

East Cork U21HC ‘A’ Final Killeagh-Ita’s v Fr O’Neills on Sunday Aug 30th in Shanagarry @16.00

This game, for the East Cork Oil sponsored Ben Purcell Cup, took place in Shanagarry on a sunny and pleasant afternoon for hurling. These two teams came here to this final with impressive displays against top teams and it promised to be an exciting final. O’Neills had victories over Sarsfields and Dungourney and scored a massive 7-33 in those two games while Killeagh/Ita’s scored an impressive 1-12 against a stubborn Midleton side in a tight and hard fought encounter. The game got off to an electric start when O’Neills had the ball in the net after only thirty seconds of play and were 1-01 up before Killeagh/Ita’s got their first score which was a brilliant point from a sideline cut by Shane Smiddy. Not to be out done Eoghan Keniry also put over a point from virtually the same spot to chalk up Killeagh/Ita’s second point. Both teams traded scores for almost the rest of the half with some great scores from the placed ball by both half forwards, Eoghan Keniry getting 0-06 of Killeagh/Ita’s 0-09 in the half from three frees, two sideline cuts and one ’65. Mathew Murphy and Stevie Treacy getting the other first half scores to add to Shane Smiddy’s opening point. Before the half ended, O’Neill’s prolific free-taker, Deccy Dalton had to leave the field earlier than the rest having been shown a red card by referee Mark Murphy. The half time

whistle came with O’Neills ahead by 1-11 to 0-09. Killeagh/Ita’s scored the first score of the second half with a point from Eoghan and kept us in touch with the opposition. However, despite being reduced to fourteen players, O’Neill’s had the better of the second half and clocked up 0-9 to Killeagh/Ita’s 0-05. Eoghan Keniry was main scorer for Killeagh/Ita’s but that is not to take away from the rest of the team. They played their best against a better team on the day and should not feel too down despite losing a prestigious final. When Mark Murphy blew the final whistle, O’Neill’s were the winners on a score of 1-20 to Killeagh/Ita’s 0-14.

Team: C Walsh, J O’Rourke, B McCarthy, M Coleman, D Cahill, C O’Brien K Murphy, S Treacy (0-01), D O’Brien, B Delaney, E Keniry (0-11), D Landers, D Cahill, S Smiddy (0-01), M Murphy (0-01). Subs: K Treacy for Dara Cahill (40 mins) and David Ogebebor for B Delaney (55 mins)

Fé 12 Football League Kiltha Óg 3-5, Killeagh-Ita’s 3-1

Our Under 12 footballers were beaten in their final group game in the Eastern ‘A’ Football League on Thursday evening in Páirc Uí Chinneide. As a result they relinquished their unbeaten record and top spot in the table to Kiltha Óg who secured victory as a result of a strong first half performance when they took advantage of the wind to lead by 2-4 to 2-0. Evan Lane and Colm Treacy were our scorers and we actually led by 2-0 to 1-2 following Colm’s goal, but 1-2 without reply in the final three minutes before half time proved crucial to Kiltha’s eventual victory. They followed this up with a quick goal and a point after half time to stretch their advantage, and although our boys never stopped trying and added a third goal from Paudie Mackey and a point from Evan Lane, they were unable to further reduce the margin. There were no further scores as both sets of defenders got on top for the final fifteen minutes and when Mary Swayne blew her final whistle, it was the Kiltha boys who were celebrating at the top of the table.

Team: Rory Motherway, Jack Flanagan, Conor Meade, Ben Budds, Aaron Fitzgibbon, George Walsh, Rory Lynch, Colm Treacy, Evan Lane, Dale McMahon, Eoin Brenner, David Buttimer, Callum Magner, Paudie Mackey, Colm Landers, Darragh O’Leary, David Buckley, Ben Fogarty.

Fé 13 Premier 2 Hurling League Semi-Final: Carrigaline 3-15, Killeagh-Ita’s 2-6

Our Under 13 team came away empty-handed and disappointed from their trip to Carrigaline on Friday evening last for the semi-final of the Premier 2 Under 13 hurling league. A strong, fit and committed Carrigaline team got off to a flying start with the wind at their backs, scoring 1-3 in the first six minutes before we began to get going. After two wides Ben O’Connor got our first point and added a second after 16 minutes to reduce the margin to 1-5 to 0-2. When Ciaran O’Rourke goaled shortly after it looked like we might pick up, but Carrigaline dominated to half time, scoring a further 1-5 with only one point in reply from Ben O’Connor. Indeed the half-time score of 2-10 to 1-3 could have been worse as Jamie Fogarty made a brilliant save just before the whistle. Playing with the wind after half time we took control for the first ten minutes, in which time Ben added two points from ‘65s and Christian Coughlan scored a goal after sustained pressure. At this point, the margin was down to five points, 2-10 to 2-5, and Carrigaline hadn’t scored or even worked the ball up past our half back line. However we couldn’t add to our tally over the next ten minutes while Carrigaline crucially got their scoreboard back in action with three points from the 45th to 48th minute to extend their lead. We continued to pile on the pressure with little by way or reward, and a further 1-2 in the last seven minutes for Carrigaline (the goal in stoppage time), left the final score at 3-15 to 2-6, and a well-deserved victory for our hosts who now play St. Colman’s in the league final. Best players for Killeagh-Ita’s on a night when we didn’t play to our potential were Brian Murphy and David Collins.

Team: Jamie Fogarty, Ben Jennings, Brian Murphy, Ryan Farquhar, David Collins, Robbie Treacy, Padraig Landers, Ciaran Leahy, Paul Kent, Ben O’Connor, Christian Coughlan, Daniel Doherty, Remy Bernard, Ciaran O’Rourke, David Buckley, Darragh Coleman, Tony McCarthy, Colm Treacy, Evan Lane, Eoin Brenner, George Walsh, Aaron Fitzgibbon.
