Fé 14 Peil: Aghada 4-12, Killeagh-Ita’s 2-7

Our Under 14 footballers completed their league campaign with a patchy performance in Aghada on Tuesday evening last. Sometimes we associate the term “lights went out” with a melt-down or malfunction, but this particular evening it seemed to be the “lights went on” which caused the difficulty for our team. In the first half, played under daylight, we saw a gripping game where the lead changed hands a number of times and our boys held a slender lead at half-time – 2-3 to 2-2, thanks to two excellent goals from Paul Delaney and Dara Motherway, points from Richie Landers (2) and Ryan McCarthy, and very good support play from Cathal Fitzgibbon, Daniel Lucey, Owen Cosgrove and Olan Broderick. However, the second half was a different matter, as, once the floodlights were turned on, it appeared as if our boys were like the proverbial ‘rabbits in the headlights’. Although Richie added his third point to extend our lead, Aghada then took over with some positional and personnel changes making a big difference, and our defence coming under sustained pressure. Aghada scored 2-10 in the remaining twenty eight minutes, while we only added three points – two kicked frees from David Kelly and a typical long-distance kick from Oisin McCarthy. Was it fitness, attitude, the changes from the opposition or the lights? Whatever the cause, we fell away badly in this second period. Hopefully we can get back into gear for our upcoming Sean Lavery Memorial Tournament which will take place in the coming weeks.

Team: Robbie Treacy, Danny Cunningham, Cian McDonald, Daniel Lucey, George Sinclair, David Kelly (0-2), Cathal Fitzgibbon, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy (0-1), Olan Broderick, Richie Landers (0-3), Oisin McCarthy (0-1), Owen Cosgrove, Paul Delaney (1-0), Dara Motherway (1-0), David Collins, Olan Coleman, Tommy Noonan, Remy Bernard, Aaron O’Connell, Darragh Coleman.

Fé 14 Hurling Challenge v Kiltha Óg

On Friday evening our Under 14 hurlers played Kiltha Óg in a challenge game in preparation for our league semi-final against Valley Rovers which takes place in Killeagh on Saturday next, September 26th at 12.30 p.m. Minus a few regulars, we had to give second-best to our neighbours on this occasion, so hopefully this game will blow away some of the cobwebs in advance of the return to knockout hurling next weekend.

Busy week ahead!

Our Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16 boys all play vital league semi-finals and finals in the coming week. First up our Under 12s play Whitechurch in Cobh on Thursday evening, September 24th @ 6.15 p.m. in the Eastern ‘A’ Hurling League Final. On Saturday 26th we welcome Valley Rovers to Páirc Uí Chinnéide at 12.30 p.m. for the Premier 2 Hurling League Semi-Final, while on Tuesday 29th it’s the turn of the Under 16 hurlers who play Courcey Rovers under lights in Killeagh at 7.30 p.m. in the Eastern ‘A’ League Semi-Final. Finally, our Under 12 boys head to Ballygarvan on Thursday October 1st for the Under 12 Eastern ‘A’ Football League Semi-Final at 7.00 p.m. All support greatly appreciated for all these games.
