Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Hard-earned victory for Under 12 boys

Fé 12 Rebel Óg Eastern ‘A’ Hurling League Ballinhassig 2-6, Killeagh-Ita’s 6-2

Having lost at home to St. Catherine’s on the previous Tuesday (the 2-ball controversy will be talked about in some houses for quite some time yet!), it was imperative that our Under 12 boys come away from their trip to Ballinhassig on Friday evening with a victory if they were to maintain their interest in this league. It didn’t look too promising in the early stages as Ballinhassig peppered our goal and only good goalkeeping from Pierse Geary and strong defending from Dylan McCarthy, Danny Fitzgerald and Darragh O’Leary kept the scores conceded column low. After 10 minutes the sides were level with our 1-1 (Colm Leahy’s goal and a Daniel Walsh free) equalling Ballinhassig’s four points. A goal for Ballinhassig gave them a deserved lead but David Buckley’s ’65 dropped to the net, levelling the score again. The rain (what’s that, I hear you ask) came on 20 minutes and our forwards made hay in the rain, adding two further goals from Daniel and Colm just before half-time. 5 scores a-piece, then, but four of ours were green flags, whereas only one of Ballinhassig’s was. The second half saw this symmetry replicated; with 2-1 for our boys (Colm and Daniel) edging Ballinhassig’s 1-2. In truth there was nothing between the teams from start to finish, we just managed to get more of our 8 scores under the bar than our opponents managed with their 8. Excellent performances from our scorers and from David Buckley, Ben Budds, Ben Fogarty and the full-back line pulled us over the line. Well played to our boys who have now qualified for a league play off at least. Special mention to the three boys who were playing their second game of the day having lined out with Inch NS earlier in their Sciath na Scol final victory – well done Ben, Darragh and Rory.

Team: Pierse Geary, Danny Fitzgerald, Darragh O’Leary, Dylan McCarthy, Conor Meade, David Buckley, Evan Daly, Ben Budds, Ben Fogarty, Ciaran Brennan, Rory Motherway, Daniel Walsh, Callum Martin White, Tommy Morrison, Colm Leahy, Darragh O’Brien and Diarmuid Fogarty.

Glory for Inch NS in Sciath Na Scol Final

Inch NS 2-3, Ballintotas NS 2-0.

Inch National School did the double for this school year when they once again defeated unlucky Ballintotas NS in the Hurling Final played in Cork I. T. Stadium on Friday morning last. Congratulations to the full panel and to their muinteoiri / bainisteoiri Maurice O’Mahony and John Irwin. Rory Motherway got Inch off the mark with a fine point inside the 2nd minute, before Colm Leahy pulled on the ground to get the first goal of the game. Colm then collected Rory’s long delivery and was fouled outside the danger area, whereupon Jamie Fogarty stepped up to bang in the second goal of the game. Was it going to be a one-sided game? No fear, as Ballintotas restructured their team and scored two fine goals of their own, with both goals from the excellent Ciarmhac Smyth, who was assisted throughout by the equally excellent Darragh McCarthy. Jamie Fogarty added a second point for Inch, leaving the boys in red ahead by 2-2 to 2-0 at half time. The second half saw really exciting play at all parts of the field, but no luck with scoring from either side bar another point from Jamie, this time from a ’65. It was a deserved victory, with three strong 6th class leaders George Walsh, Evan Lane and Jamie Fogarty leading the charge for Inch, and the other three 6th class players, Sarah Kent, Aaron Fitzgibbon and Jack Flanagan also playing their part with solid performances.

Team: Ben Budds, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Jamie Fogarty, Sarah Kent, Evan Lane, Jack Flanagan, George Walsh, Rory Motherway, Ben Walsh, Darragh O’Leary, Colm Leahy, Barry Walsh.

U12 Hurling league: Killeagh-Ita’s v's St. Catherine’s.

Team Pearse Geary, Ben Fogarty, Darragh O'Leary, Tommy Morrison, Conor Meade, Ben Budds, Dylan McCarthy, Rory Motherway, Callum Martin White, Evan Daly, David Buckley, Daniel Walsh, Ciaran Brennan, Column Leagh and Danny Fitzgerald.

The end result was not to be in our favour with a last minute goal from St. Catherine’s making the final score - St. Catherine’s 5-7 Killeagh 5-4.

It was a fantastic game of hurling and well done to all our boys.  

No joy for Killeagh-Ita’s in Fe14 County Final Clash. Killeagh-Ita’s and Kiltha Óg took to the pitch in Ballinacurra for the Carrigaline Court Fe14 Premier 2 County Hurling Final on Wednesday 8th last.  Our boys worked tirelessly unfortunately their endeavours did not convert to scores on the board.  We were first to register a score, when a free awarded to Killeagh-Ita’s was skilfully pointed by Ben; unfortunately this was to be the only time in the game that we were ahead.  Despite being first to score the boys never settled into the game and failed to display the standard of hurling that we have become familiar with in recent games.  When Cathal Egan blew for half time there was a 7 point difference between the two teams. Killeagh/Ita's were first to score in the second half however Kiltha Óg responded in kind.  A couple of unfortunate goals in the second half put the game beyond the reach of our boys and the cup was to go to Kiltha Óg.  Well done to our panel and mentors who gave us a great championship and reached a county final: now they will turn their attention to the league. Final score was a victory to Kiltha Óg of 3-14 to 1-05

Team: G Walsh, E Lane, J Fogarty, P Landers, D Collins, B Murphy, R Treacy, P Kent, C Treacy, B O Connor, C Coughlan, D Doherty, R Bernard, C O Rourke, C Leahy Subs: B Budds, R Farquhar, T McCarthy, D Coleman, A Fitzgibbon, E Brenner, P Mackey, D Scully.
