Killeagh GAA Senior Hurling: Since we finished in 3rd position in Phase 1 of Group A in the RedFM SHL behind Ballymartle & Midleton, we have been placed into a group of 4 teams for Phase 2 of the Competition with the top team to qualify for a place in the Quarter Final of the RedFM Senior Hurling League. Our opponents standing in our way are St. Finbarrs, Carrigtwohill & Bishopstown, of which we faced the latter in Páirc Uí Chinnéide last Wednesday 26th July. On a blustery but dry evening for Hurling, the home side got away to a perfect start as Eoghan Keniry broke onto loose ball and nailed the opening score of the game within a minute of Referee Brian Murphy's first whistle. Well taken points from Philip O'Neill, Andrew Walsh & Eoghan Keniry (1f) brought the scoreboard to 4pts to nil after 16mins. The game itself never took off due to poor shooting and the stop start nature and the concession of some soft frees on both sides. Early substitute David Cahill (25 min) caught a clean puck out from his goal keeper Colin Walsh and stuck the ball over the bar and further points contributed from Eoghan Keniry saw the Boys In Green lead Bishopstown 0-7 to 0-5 at the short whistle. On the resumption of the 2nd half, a sweetly struck delivery from midfielder Philip O'Neill was pulled on in mid air by Kieran Lane 20 yards from goal and went inches to the right of the posts and wide. The opening scores of the 2nd half came from two fantastic scores from play off the sticks of Andrew Walsh and Kevin Murphy. Bishopstown replied with four unanswered points to make it 9 points each after 41 mins. The game was in the balance when the City side took the initiative and scored a crucial goal on the 47th minute to make the score line 0-10 to 1-9. Four minutes later, Killeagh started getting back into the game when Eoghan Keniry was taken down in the Square and Referee Murphy awarded a Penalty to the home side. From the resultant Penalty Kevin Murphy blazed the ball high over the bar. From here on in, Killeagh finished out the stronger better team by out scoring Bishopstown's 4 points to 1. Final Score; Killeagh 0-15 Bishopstown 1-10. In summary two valuable points gathered in Phase 2 of the RedFM SHL. The performance from our team was honest and when Bishopstown scored their goal to lead by two points in a low scoring game our lads stood up tall and took on the challenge to finish in front where it mattered. Well done to all involved. Players who played well in this game include Sean Long, Kevin Murphy, Philip O'Neill & Eoghan Keniry. Two games left in this Phase 2 of SHL vs Carrigtwohill (Home) & St. Finbarrs (Away). These are two must win games to advance to Quarter Final. Back to grind stone to improve ourselves for our next test whether it's Championship or League. Our 2nd Round Championship game is fixed vs Douglas for the 20th August in Cobh depending on Cork Senior Hurlers losing to the Deise on 13th August.

JUVENILE NOTES

Carrigaline Court Championship draws for Fe18, Fe 16 and Fe14

Minor Championship: Our minors played on Thursday evening against Fr. O'Neills at 7.30pm in Castlemartyr but came out on the wrong side of a high scoring game, going down by just 2 points on a final scoreline of 4-16 to 4-18

Fe 16 Championship: Our Fe16’s drew Ballygarvan in their first-round clash and it takes place on Thursday, August 3rd, further details to be confirmed at a later stage. A victory in this game would see us advance to a semi-final and with no back door in this competition a loss would see our bid for silverware ended.

Fe 14 Championship: Our Fe14’s will play Cobh in their first round tie. The game is due to be played around the 16th August with venue and time to be confirmed at a later date. A coveted place in the semi-final is the prize for the winners with the losers ending their championship campaign. Lots of exciting games ahead so keep an eye for further details and come out to support the boys.

Premier 2 Hurling League

Bishopstown 1-10, Killeagh-Ita’s 6-17

Balincollig 0-17, Killeagh-Ita’s 0-16

Two away trips in 48 hours brought mixed results for our Under 16 panel, with a relatively easy victory over Bishopstown followed by a much sterner test against a strong Ballincollig outfit which ended in a narrow and slightly frustrating one point loss. The Bishopstown match was our first in this league for almost three months, and we took our time to settle into the game. Darragh O’Connor got our first goal on 11 minutes, but things were even enough until Ben O’Connor’s brace of goals and Cian McDonald’s first just before half-time gave us a commanding 4-9 to 0-4 lead at half time. A siesta after half time, and good play from our hosts, meant the margin was reduced by 48 minutes, 5-10 to 1-10, and nothing being certain. However, a late flurry of points and catches left us ahead by 6-17 to 1-10, with excellent long-range points from Richie Landers, Dara Motherway and Olan Broderick a feature of this strong finish.

Team: Ciaran O’Rourke, Robert Sinclair, Daniel Lucey, Paul Delaney, Christian Coughlan, Richie Landers, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Ryan McCarthy, David Kelly, Olan Broderick, Oisin McCarthy, Dara Motherway, Darragh O’Connor, Cian McDonald, Ben O’Connor. Subs: Ciaran Leahy, Brian Murphy and David Collins.

Wednesday’s visit to Ballincollig gave supporters and both teams a game of a much higher standard, with excellent defending, point-scoring and outstanding goal-keeping a feature of the work of both teams. Ciaran O’Rourke made three point-blank saves in our goal to keep an amazing clean sheet, while the Ballincollig ‘keeper made two great saves of his own just when it looked like we would score. Tantalisingly, Ballincollig kept themselves just ahead of us throughout the second half to win by just the one point at the final whistle.

U16 Rebel Og B1 East3 Football league

Killeagh/Ita’s welcomed our neighbours Youghal to Pairc Ui Chinneide on Monday 24th to play our third league game in this competition. With two wins from two games it was important to secure maximum league points to maintain our position on the top of the league table. The throw-in was delayed due to the non-arrival of the reiteoir. However after consulting with the Eastern Board it was decided that Youghal would ref the first half and Killeagh/Ita’s the second. We would like to thank Hugh Dorian and Brendan Delaney for doing a great job officiating during the game. Both teams traded points and were level on three apiece when Youghal breached our defence not once but twice to go ahead 0-3 to 2-03. Killeagh/Ita’s were working hard and they reaped the rewards when Ciaran made a run passed the ball to Cian who skillfully put the ball past the Youghal Goalie. Right from the kick out Killeagh/Ita’s were on the attack again and a rebound off the goalie was intercepted by Karl who made no mistake and the sides were level once again. Youghal finished the stronger in the first half and led by a goal at the break, 2-05 to 3-05. Richie opened the scoring for the home-team in the second half. When Karl was given the opportunity to put us ahead when he stepped up to kick a penalty. Another superb finish from Karl put some space between ourselves and Youghal. We tacked on another two points when Youghal pointed to open their second half scoring. This point was quickly followed by another goal, however the home side were not going to be denied the league points and added 4 points to their tally and the full-time score read 3-12 to Youghal’s 4-6. Well done boys a very good team performance.

Team : R Treacy, R Sinclair, C Fitzgibbon, O McCarthy, C McDonald, D O Connor, Ryan McCarthy, R Landers, G Sinclair, K O’Toole, D Kelly, D Motherway, D Lucey, C O’Rourke,
