Junior Ladies v Dohenys Junior League
A tough opening encounter against Dohenys in the Cork Junior League Round 1. A panel of 18 made the long road trip earlier today in horrendous conditions to the West Cork town of Dunmanway. On a very heavy pitch we found the going extremely tough playing into a gale force wind. Our first game of the season our touch was away off and we allowed Dohenys too much room in that opening half. Tried as the girls did we just couldn't contain them. We did make a few worthwhile ventures into the oppositions half and one such move resulted in a fine point from the boot of Molly Beausang. Kate Mary in goal was the busiest player on the pitch and only for her the score would have been very painful at the break. 4:5 down at the break was a good result considering the conditions.
In the second half we started brightly and took the game to Dohenys. We played much better in the second half and outscored our opposition by 1:3 to 1 goal. The goal was a screamer from Claire O'Brien, with our full back Lucy also getting in on the scoring with a fine point. Abby Quirke finished off a fine passage of off the shoulder passing with a point which she started and ably assisted by Niamh O'Farrell who also scored a fine point. The wind dying off also didn't do us any favours, but a much better performance in the second half.

Camogie
Over the past week we began the playing season with two challenge games. All members of our U13/14/15 and 16 groups have participated in these games. On Wednesday evening last the girls took on Cobh away under lights. Conditions were very cold, windy and occasional heavy showers but it did not deter our girls who all played with tremendous determination and work rate against a side a grade above them. With a constant stream of players swapping in and out the girls lost out by just two points. All the girls were outstanding.
Next up on a very cold, windy and showery Sunday morning on Carrigtwohill's all weather surface we met the Imokilly U14 divisional side. The girls continued on from the Cobh match and over 3 x 25 minute periods put in a phenomenal effort in very tough conditions and were very unfortunate to lose out again by 2 points. All the girls played superbly including Caoimhe Murray who lined out for Imokilly, with some outstanding individual Midleton performances, that no doubt Imokilly selectors could not have but noticed. With the level of commitment shown by the girls over the last week in terrible weather conditions, been amazing it promises to be a busy and long year ahead and we look forward to seeing the girls playing Camogie under some "normal" conditions soon. Well done girls.

Juvenile

Fe 14
Midleton v Dicksboro (Kilkenny) Hurling Challenge Game.
Our Fe 14s travelled to Kilkenny on Sunday last to support the Cork senior hurling team as they took on the might of Kilkenny. Prior to the senior game we had our own ‘big game’ versus Dickboro. Dicksboro is located on the outskirts of Kilkenny city. The persistent rain that we encountered as we travelled through Tipperary had completely disappeared as we arrived into Kilkenny. So near perfect conditions were in place as the game began. Darragh McCarthy hit a purple patch for the first 15 minutes of the game. He scored all of our first four points. Alex Quirke registered his first score of the day with a superb long distance point. This was followed by a point from Cian Murray who soloed into a scoring position and then neatly slotted the ball between the uprights. The last score of the half was a goal from Ben O’Neill. Ben collected the ball on the 20 meter line and calmly dispatched the ball to the back of the Dicksboro net. Half Time Score: Midleton 1-06 Dicksboro 1-01
The second half had only just started when Alex registered his second point. Rory Hartnett was next to score and this was followed by a point from the ever improving Evan Kelly. Darragh McCarthy finished the game with our final two scores, a cracking goal and a deft point. There were some fine performances on the day. Players to shine included Fintan Greenwood, Craig Collins, Adam Fay, Liam McGrath, Darragh Codd, Darragh Mooney & James Condon. Final Score: Midleton 2-10 Dicksboro 2-02.
Panel: B Saunderson, J O’Sullivan, F Greenwood, N Fitzgerald, A Fay, C Smyth, E Kelly (0-01), A Quirke (0-02), L McGrath, C Murray, D McCarthy (1-05), K Rowlands, R Hartnett (0-01), P Magan, B. O’Neill (1-00), E McCarthy, J Condon, C Collins D Codd, K Barry, D Mooney & J Spellman.
