Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Good performances but no points for Under 13s

Rebel Óg Eastern ‘A’ Fé 13 Football Killeagh-Ita’s 2-5, Whitechurch 4-5

Rebel Óg Premier 2 Fé 13 Hurling Killeagh-Ita’s 2-5, Cobh 3-9


A busy week for our Under 13 boys saw them host two games, play well, but ultimately lose both to better teams. The football game v Whitechurch on Wednesday evening saw our opponents get off to a flier with a goal after 20 seconds, before we equalised with three points from Colm Treacy, Evan Lane and Eoin Brenner.  Our defence got on top for a while with Jamie Fogarty, Rory Motherway and Paudie Mackey playing very well. Whitechurch came back again with 1-2 before Colm’s second point and a goal from Evan Lane left us trailing by 2-2 to 1-4 at half time. The second half saw Whitechurch’s defence dominate, and we only added 1-1 in the final five minutes, both scored by Jamie Fogarty who moved from full-back to full-forward in an attempt to rescue the game. Unfortunately, in spite of excellent defending from Ben Budds, Rory Lynch and goalkeeper Conor Meade, Whitechurch sneaked in for two goals in the same period, which gave them a comfortable two-goal cushion at Jim Daly’s final whistle.

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

48 hours later, it was the small ball, and Cobh, with a few of our players unavoidably absent. Some exceptionally strong Cobh players dominated the centre-field throughout this game, yet our boys, physically smaller, battled right to the end. Two quick-fire goals from Conor Meade and David Buttimer, either side of a David Buckley point, gave us an unlikely lead after 20 minutes, 2-1 to 0-3, before a pointed free and a late Cobh goal levelled the game ag leath am. The second half saw action at both ends, with David Buckley’s two beautiful points and Eoin Brenner’s two frees our scores. Cobh managed to do better, with two further goals, despite excellent stops from Ben Budds and great clearing by Ben Fogarty, George Walsh and Colm Treacy. Well done to our boys who have two further hurling games this week, versus Carrigtwohill (Tuesday) and Youghal (Friday).

Team: Ben Budds, Ben Fogarty, Jamie Fogarty, Rory Motherway, Rory Lynch, George Walsh, Paudie Mackey, David Buttimer, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Conor Meade, Evan Lane, Eoin Brenner, David Buckley, Colm Treacy, Ciaran Brennan, Cormac Fitzpatrick.


U16s get first win at second attempt

Rebel Óg Eastern ‘A’ Fé 16 Hurling Killeagh-Ita’s 2-19, Erins Own 3-3

Having been beaten by Kiltha Óg in their opening league game, our Under 16 hurlers were anxious to get back on the horse in their final game before the Junior Cert moratorium kicks in. Erins Own kindly agreed to concede home venue for this game on Thursday evening last. A quick goal after one minute gave our opponents a flying start, but our boys responded with three points from Padraig Leahy, and Olin Hennessy and new centre-forward Barry Motherway also pointing. Olin set up full-forward Olan Broderick for a goal before Erins Own got their second green flag. This left the score at 1-12 to 2-0 at half time, and we managed to contain the Erins Own boys reasonably well throughout the second half, with all of our defenders, including the replacements, continuing to keep the score down. Dara Motherway added a second goal while Brian Murphy made some excellent saves before being beaten in the final minute by a third Erins Own goal from centre-back Adam Murphy, one of their better players on the night. Best wishes to our ten Under 15 and Under 16 players who put the hurleys behind the door for a little while now as they concentrate on “the books” in preparation for June 8th and beyond.

Team: Brian Murphy, James Kent, Oisin McCarthy, Darragh Geary, Adrian Galvin, Richie Landers, Kieran Daly, David Kelly, Ryan McCarthy, Padraig Leahy, Barry Motherway, Richie Long, Olin Hennessy, Olan Broderick, Dara Motherway, Robert Sinclair, Owen Cosgrove, Danny Cunningham, Paul Delaney, Tommy Noonan.
