Cork Senior Hurling

Our senior hurling team had two Red FM senior league ties this week. On Wednesday they played St. Finbarrs in a very entertaining game and while both teams held the advantage at different stages it was The Barrs who finished stronger and went on to win on a final score of 1-19 to 3-15. On Friday last Sarsfields came to Killeagh and again our lads were competing hard but failed to overcome the Glanmire side who won the game comfortably in the end on a score of 1-05 to 1-17.

East Cork Football/Hurling;

Our junior ‘C’ team played Midleton in a championship semi-final fixture last Wednesday night in Killeagh. Although they put in a great performance it was not enough to thwart the stronger Magpies outfit who went on to dominate the second half and record a victory on a final score of 2-07 to 4-12. The team and the club deserve great credit for fielding a fourth senior team and they are especially grateful to Martin Fitzgerald for his continuing hard work at this level.

Under 15 Team Negotiate Tough First Hurdle

Rebel Óg Premier 2 Hurling Championship Quarter-Final Carrigaline 3-9, Killeagh-Ita’s 3-14

A game of quality which was, but not in the conventional way, a game of two halves, saw our Under 15 team get over the line in Carrigaline faoi na soilse last Thursday evening. A score-fest first half saw us behind, ahead, behind again and eventually ahead before we stopped for breath at half-time with the busy scoreboard, manned by Bernie, reading 3-9 to 3-4 in our favour. It was a really excellent exhibition of scoring, although two of our goals perhaps might have been prevented by better marking at the back. Dara Motherway (courtesy of a great pass from the very effective Cian McDonald) on 9 minutes, Olan Broderick on 13 minutes, and Darragh O’Connor a minute later were our goal scorers, but Carrigaline were raising green flags just as quickly, with goals on seven, ten and twenty minutes. Cathal Fitzgibbon, Ben O’Connor and Oisin McCarthy were all working hard in the middle third of the field, feeding good ball to the inside line. Of the 19 scores in this half, only four (one free and one ‘65 from each side) came from placed balls, as both sets of forwards ran their opposing defenders ragged. The second half was a totally different type of match, with the tough conditions putting the brakes on the flying forwards as both sets of defences started to get on top. No more green flags were raised, while both sides added just five points each to their half-time tally. Our scores came throughout the half and meant that the gap never became less than five, although credit to Carrigaline for sustained efforts from start to finish as they sought a goal to get within range. Our defence hurled excellently after half time, especially Robert Sinclair and Danny Cunningham on the right wing, where the majority of the play went in that half. Owen Cosgrove came on and scored a crucial point from the left wing on 50 minutes, while Olan Broderick got our final point on 53 minutes as we held on until referee Cathal Egan’s final whistle. We now move on to the semi-final now, with Na Piarsaigh or Blackrock waiting.

Team: Brian Murphy, Danny Cunningham, Daniel Lucey, Paul Delaney, Robert Sinclair, Richie Landers, David Kelly, Ben O’Connor (0-5), Ryan McCarthy (0-2f), Oisin McCarthy (0-1), Olan Broderick (1-4), Cathal Fitzgibbon, Dara Motherway (1-1), Cian McDonald, Darragh O’Connor (1-0).
