Senior Hurling Championship v Sarsfield in Caherlag on Saturday 28th May 2016

Carrigtwohill 0-11 Sars 0-14

Carrig’s senior hurlers came up just short against Sars in a tight first round match in Caherlag on Saturday night. No more than a point or two separated the teams for most of the match until last year’s county finalists finally pulled away in the last ten minutes despite the brave efforts of a hugely committed Carrig team. *

Carrig held the lead on a couple of occasions in the first half but never by more than a point. Daniel O’Mahony got a couple of excellent points from play and Tomas Hogan added four points from frees, two of them beauties. Sars, though, picked up a couple of points just before half time to lead by 0-8 to 0-6 at the break. *

The Carrig defence was once again outstanding with Ronan Power and Michael O’Riordan terrific in the half back line and young Brian Cashman making an excellent championship debut at corner back. Jay Horgan did a brilliant man-marking job on Cork senior Daniel Kearney who was a peripheral figure in the game and Carrig were still in the hunt mid-way through the second half.

Robbie White scored a lovely point just after the break and Niall McCarthy arrowed over one of his trademark points off his left near the side line. Carrig, though, were never able to draw level at any stage in the second half and the goal that Carrig really needed failed to materialise despite the best efforts of Niall Mac around the square.

Carrig scorers: Tomas Hogan 0-6 frees; Niall McCarthy and Daniel O’Mahony 0-2 each; Robbie White 0-1

Carrigtwohill Team: William McCarthy, Pat O’Sullivan, Padraic Hogan, Brian Cashman, Michael O’Riordan, Ronan Power, Colm O’Connell, Liam O’Sullivan, Jay Horgan, Seamus Roche, Niall McCarthy, Tomas Hogan, Daniel O’Mahony, Robbie White, Darren O’Driscoll.

Watergrasshill come more into the game before the break cutting our lead to three points leaving the score seven points to four at the break.

Watergrasshill sustained the pressure in the second period with the aid of the elements .Carrig tried hard but were unable to hold on for victory leaving the full time score 1 15 to 1 10 in Watergrasshill ‘s favour.

Junior A Hurling League v Killeagh in Carrigtwohill  on Monday 9th May 2016
Carrigtwohill 1-11 Killeagh 0-10

Carrigtwohill had to pull all the stops to maintain their unbeaten run in the Junior Hurling League 2  against a very determined Killeagh side in Carrigtwohill last Monday evening. Credit to both sets of players for their efforts as this game was played in atrocious weather conditions Carrig were quickly off the mark and were by far the better team in the first half. With a variety of players getting on the scoresheet Carrig enjoyed a 1-11 to 0-6 lead at the interval. Carrig failed to build on that lead in the second half against the elements and had to withstand a big challenge from Killeagh before finally securing the points with a 1-11 to 0-10 victory.

Senior Hurling League v Midleton in Midleton on Saturday 7th May 2016
Carrigtwohill 3-6 Midleton 0-16

Carrig’s senior hurlers came up just short in a hectic finish against their old rivals Midleton in the RedFM senior league last Saturday. On a wet murky night there was barely enough daylight to finish the game and the outcome was in the balance right until the final whistle.

The sides were level at half time after a low-scoring first half during which Midleton had a player sent off. Jamie McCarthy gave Carrig the lead mid-way through the first half with a very well taken goal after good approach work from Liam O’Sullivan but scores were hard to come by with defences on top. Niall McCarthy and Michael Fitzgerald got the pick of Carrig’s points.

The second half followed a similar pattern with Midleton building a score largely with frees and Carrig fighting back with goals. Jamie got his second goal at the end of the third quarter to give Carrig a 2-3 to 0-7 lead but Carrig were behind again and struggling when substitute Robbie White got Carrig’s third goal with about five minutes left. The sides were level one last time before Midleton won the game with a late surge.


Carrig: Shane Devlin, Pat O’Sullivan, Padraic Hogan, Brian Cashman, Colm O’Connell, Ronan Power, Michael O’Riordan, Jay Horgan, Liam O’Sullivan, Seamus Roche, Niall McCarthy, Tomas Hogan, Stephen Kidney, Sean Dempsey, Jamie McCarthy.


Senior Hurling League v Erin’s Own in Caherlag on Monday 2nd May 2016
Carrigtwohill 1-11 Erin’s Own 2-15

After a terrible start and with a severely understrength team Carrig’s senior hurlers put up a spirited performance against Erin’s Own in Caherlag on Monday night. Despite playing with the strong wind in the first half Carrig trailed by 1-6 to 0-2 after about 12 minutes but more than held their own for the rest of the match and even led for a brief period after half time.

The match was significant for the return of Daniel O’Mahony and Robbie White after serious injuries – it was Danny’s first appearance since the championship match against Erin’s Own last May and it was Robbie’s first appearance since last August. Both acquitted themselves with credit.

Carrig recovered from their nightmare start to trail by a goal at the break, 1-8 to 0-8 and kicked on early in the second half when Shane Healy forced home a dropping ball from Tomas Hogan. A point from a free quickly followed but Carrig’s good work in the third quarter was undone by Erins Own’s second goal and the home side gradually took control after that.

The Carrig defence, led by Colm O’Connell, Ronan Power and Paraic Hogan, was once again outstanding under heavy pressure at times.


Carrig: Shane Devlin, Ronan Power, Paraic Hogan, Brian Cashman, Colm O’Connell, Pat O’Sullivan, Michael O’Riordan, Jay Horgan, Conor McCarthy, Shane Healy, Seamus Roche, Tomas Hogan, Stephen Kidney, Daniel O’Mahony, Jamie McCarthy.

Subs used: Eoghan O’Mahony, Robbie White.
