Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Peaceful Pilmore Provides Pitch and Point

Rebel Óg Eastern ‘A’ Fé 13 Football League Killeagh-Ita’s 3-6, Inniscarra 2-9

After Sunday’s deluge and storm, Páirc Uí Ghrifín in Pilmore was called into action for our Under 13 footballers’ opening league game against Inniscarra on Monday evening last, with all three pitches in Páirc Uí Chinnéide not fit for games. The calm evening and the peaceful surroundings were in keeping with the mood of the players and their mentors and supporters, who all enjoyed a fantastic game of football under the charge of reiteoir Mary Swayne. It didn’t appear to look so appealing for our boys after six minutes, with Inniscarra charging out of the blocks and banging in two goals in quick succession. We settled, slowly, with Eoin Brenner kicking two points from frees, and by the 19th minute we had levelled matters (2-2 each) with Dale McMahon and Conor Meade getting the goals. Conor’s goal was an excellent team move with Eoin Brenner’s knock-down allowing Conor to finish. A further point apiece (ours a fine effort from Evan Lane) left the teams level at half time. Paudie Mackey, Colm Treacy, George Walsh, Rory Lynch and Cormac Fitzpatrick were among our leading players in this half. The second half saw our boys dominate the first five minutes but unfortunately we failed to add to our score, and we were to rue our missed chances as Inniscarra took over for the next ten minutes, kicking four points in a row to turn the screw. David Buckley kicked over to reduce the deficit, and then Daniel Walsh goaled to level. With ten minutes to go, Jamie Fogarty kicked us into the lead, but Inniscarra came back and added two further points which swung the pendulum in their direction. As our defenders repelled further attacks, the ball was worked carefully up to the Inniscarra danger area, and when a free was awarded on the 20 metre line, Eoin Brenner kept his nerve to kick the levelling score. A fair result to a most entertaining game as the sun went down behind us! Many thanks to the St. Ita’s club for making their pitch available at short notice, and in particular to Denis Doherty for preparing the pitch in advance of the game.

Team: Callum Martin White, Jack Flanagan, Jamie Fogarty, Ben Budds, Paudie Mackey, George Walsh, Rory Lynch, Evan Lane, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Dale McMahon, Colm Treacy, David Buttimer, Eoin Brenner, Conor Meade, Cormac Fitzpatrick. Subs: Daniel Walsh, David Buckley, Ben Fogarty, Rory Motherway.


Minor Hurlers Win Again

Premier 1 Minor Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 1-14, Midleton 2-8

A good second-half performance gave our minors their second win of the league against a strong Midleton team in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Wednesday last. This was a good quality game which entertained the supporters from Killeagh and Midleton as well as some interested Glanmire observers. Scores were at a premium in the first half with just six points shared between the teams for 28 minutes – Aaron Walsh’s brace and a ’65 from Killian Treacy being our scores. Killian’s free gave us the lead for the fourth time on 29 minutes but we were rocked by a goal and a point from Midleton just before half-time which left us trailing by 1-4 to 0-4 on Brian Murphy’s half-time whistle. The second half saw our defensive work continue throughout the pitch, while our forwards began to get on the ball and convert more scores. Five points in the first eight minutes (three from Killian’s frees, one each from Aaron and Sean Walsh) extended our lead to four as Midleton were restricted to just one in reply. Further points from Killian (one each from play and from a free) were cancelled out by Midleton scores, before a fine goal from Andrew Leahy pushed us further ahead – 1- 11 to 1-7 with eight minutes left. This lead was far from comfortable, however, and our defence had to maintain their discipline and alertness to prevent Midleton on numerous occasions. Andrew’s point on fifty six minutes was wedged between two frees from Kevin Murphy (very dominant throughout at centre-back) and Killian. Our impressive full-back line of Dylan Hogan, Jack O’Rourke and Emmet Barron continued their nobody-through policy for the final minutes but Midleton came right back into it with a point and a goal, just like the first half, at the very end, leaving us with a dangerous two-point lead. Thankfully a final free from Killian settled the nerves, giving us a deserved victory ag deireadh an chluiche.  League match number 3 is away to Douglas on Friday 22nd, followed by championship against Sarsfields on April 29th. Clock is ticking!

Team: Fionn McDonnell, Dylan Hogan, Jack O’Rourke, Emmet Barron, Jamie Landers, Kevin Murphy, Luke Fogarty, Keane Kelly Budds, Christy Coughlan, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Andrew Leahy, David Ogbebor, Aaron Walsh, Killian Treacy, Sean Walsh. Subs: Cathal Deane, Padraig Leahy, Richie Long, Barry Motherway.


No joy for Under 16s on first day out

Rebel Óg Eastern A Fé 16 Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 3-10, Kiltha Óg 3-18

A high-scoring game gave supporters of both teams great thrills on Thursday evening last in Páirc Uí Chinnéide, but unfortunately for our boys, Kiltha Óg scored more than we did and thus came away with the points. It looked promising for us in the first few minutes as Richie Landers (2) and Richie Long gave us a three point lead. Kiltha got on the scoreboard with two frees and one from play, and by nineteen minutes we held a 7-5 lead, with points from Padraig Leahy (2) and a brace from Richie Long. Adrian Galvin was hurling excellent ball on the left wing, while Kieran Daly was mopping up everything in his right corner. We were then rocked by an excellent first goal of two from Kiltha full-forward Kyle Quinn-Waites before Padraig Leahy replied with an impressive green flag finish for us. Kiltha took control of the final five minutes, scoring 1-2 without reply to lead 2-8 to 1-7 at half-time. The second half saw some positional changes in our side which shored up some gaps but created gaps in other areas. Kiltha continued to dominate throughout the field, with Daragh Moran and Joe Stack on opposite ‘40s leading their charge. Nonetheless our boys kept battling away with Richie Long and Olan Broderick scoring two great goals, although Kiltha scored the next point immediately after each goal to quash our fight back. With two minutes to go we bombarded the Kiltha goal line but could not get the fourth goal that might have salvaged a draw, and with the final play, Kiltha attacked at the other end and goaled to give them a rather flattering eight point victory at referee Michael Mulry’s final whistle.

Team: Dara Motherway, Paul Delaney, Darragh Geary, Kieran Daly, Ryan McCarthy, Dylan Hogan, Adrian Galvin, David Kelly, Barry Motherway, Richie Long, Jack Wyse, Padraig Leahy, Olin Hennessy, Richie Landers, Olan Broderick. Subs used: Robert Sinclair, Owen Cosgrove, Brian Murphy, Danny Cunningham, Cathal Fitzgibbon.


U15s finish strongly to win

Rebel Óg Premier 2 Fé 15 Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 3-11, Ballygarvan 1-11

An excellent game of hurling on Sunday afternoon last saw our Under 15 team get a late scoring burst of 1-3 in the final five minutes to pip Ballygarvan in Round 2 of the league. Both teams were missing key players, with our full-back line depleted through injury. George Sinclair and Oisin McCarthy stepped into the breach and performed admirably throughout, alongside the ever consistent Paul Delaney. Having started in a whirlwind with a goal by Ben O’Connor in the first minute, we promptly fell asleep for fifteen minutes, allowing Ballygarvan to go ahead by the 18th minute with five points, to which we only offered one Olan Broderick point in reply. However, Ben’s second goal, following a flick on from Dara Motherway, gave us the unusual score of 2-1, and two further points from Dara and Richie Landers gave us a three point cushion – 2-3 to 0-6 at Jim Daly’s half-time whistle. The second half saw us in command for the first ten minutes with Ben, Dara and Olan all adding scores to give us a 2-8 to 0-8 lead. The next fifteen minutes saw another hibernation period for our team, as we went scoreless while Ballygarvan scored 1-3 to equalise with two minutes left. Late points from Ben and Olan and a fine goal from Dara in added time gave us a flattering cushion on the final whistle – 3-11 to 1-11. Next up is a trip to Valley Rovers on Saturday April 30th.

Team: Brian Murphy, George Sinclair, Oisin McCarthy, Paul Delaney, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy, Richie Landers, David Kelly, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Dara Motherway, Olan Broderick, Owen Cosgrove, Aaron O’Connell, Ben O’Connor, Darragh O’Connor. Subs: Christian Coughlan, Robbie Treacy, Ciaran O’Rourke.
