Killeagh GAA Senior Hurling:

Killeagh senior hurlers were back in action in the SHC again on Sunday evening, Aug 27th in Pairc Ui Rinn where they faced divisional side Carbery. Following the heroic victory against Douglas eight days earlier the lads put in a very satisfying performance to advance to a last 16 game against Sarsfields. To be fair to Carbery, they were not able to cope with Killeagh as the final score of 3-23 to 1-14 would suggest. Right from the first whistle Killeagh worked hard all over the pitch to gain the upper hand and restrict Carbery in their pursuit of an upset. At half time Killeagh were in the lead on a scoreline of 3-13 to 1-06 and well in control. Chief scorer in this first half was David Cahill with 2-02 who was always threatening to score whenever he got on the ball. Kieran Lane opened the scoring with a point from play inside the first minute and the next two scores were points from Carbery to go one point up after three minutes. From here to the short whistle Killeagh took control and seemed to score with every attack. Eoghan Keniry put in a telling display and scored 1-03 getting his goal after six minutes following good work from Dave Cahill and Shane Smiddy. Killeagh's second goal came after ten minutes from David Cahill following good vision and work by Andy Walsh and Eoghan. The third goal came on eighteen minutes again from David Cahill and put Killeagh in command where they led by 3-08 to 1-3. Closing out the half Killeagh added five more points to Carbery's three points. Andy Walsh at number ten put in a lot of work and scored three points with the second on twenty two minutes being a great effort from way over on the left of the pitch. Shane Smiddy completed the tally with four good points in the half. The second half was not as free scoring as the first with Killeagh out-scoring Carbery by ten points to eight. Chief scorer in this half was Eoghan Keniry with four points but he could have scored a few more having sent a penalty to the left of the post mid-way through the half. Shane Smiddy and David Cahill added two points each to their tally with David's second point on sixty minutes being an absolute gem of a score. Killian Treacy added a beautiful point just after he came on as a sub following a perfect pass from fellow sub Dan Landers. All in all it was a solid performance by every player who took to the pitch for Killeagh. Goalkeeper Colin had a relatively quiet game and could not really be faulted for the goal as he seemed to be unsighted. The back-line worked hard and worked well as a unit and substitutes coming on in the second half slotted in well to their positions. The forward line also worked very hard and each man was a real danger going forward and clocking up 3-23 is impressive no matter who the opposition may be. The midfield duo of Philip O'Neill and Mikey Fitzgerald put in trojan work throughout the game and surely

the loudest cheer went up when the hard-working Mikey scored a well-deserved point after ten minutes of the second half. The final score was 3-23 to Killeagh and 1-14 to Carbery.

Team: C Walsh, C Fogarty, B Barry, S Long, K Murphy, P O'Brien, K Lane, M Fitzgerald, P O'Neill, A Walsh, G Leahy, S Smiddy, D Cahill, A Keniry, E Keniry. Subs Used: D Ogbebor for G Leahy, D Landers for P O'Brien, K Treacy for P O'Neill, C Coughlan for A Walsh.

Rebel Óg Premier 2A Fé 14 Hurling Championship Semi-Final

Killeagh-Ita’s 4-7, Mallow 2-8

Another hard-fought victory for our Under 14s has propelled them into the Premier 2 A Hurling Final on Saturday next against Blarney, who defeated Bride Rovers in a cracking semi-final in Delaney’s on Wednesday last. Our game was played in the adjacent, but unfamiliar to our team, Rathpeacon pitch. Colm Treacy was unable to play due to illness and the management duo of Johnny Brenner and Adrian Budds shuffled their pack, introducing Ben Fogarty in the full-back line, pushing Jack Flanagan to half-back and George Walsh to midfield. Our first score came from a Jamie Fogarty ’65, against the wind, and while Mallow equalised, Eoin Brenner got on the end of the next attack and finished to the net after good work from Callum Martin White. Paudie Mackey added a point as Eoin this time laid on the pass, and on the quarter hour we looked to be crusising as a second goal from Paudie and points from Evan Lane (free) and Paudie had us 2-4 to 0-1 ahead. The fact that Mallow outscored us by 2-7 to 2-4 for the remainder of the game indicates (a) that Mallow were every bit as as good as us for the majority of the game and that (b) tosach maith really is ‘leath na h-oibre’. We lost our way after this good start as Mallow’s spine began to create some havoc and 1-2 without reply reduced our margin to just four points. Callum’s fine point just before half-time was a welcome relief after 16 minutes scoreless. The second half saw us get off to a great start as Evan Lane finished to the net but unfortunately from here to the finish our radar was badly off. A total of 10 wides (we had none in the first half) put undue pressure on our team, while Mallow were very efficient in front of goal and added 1-5 to just two points in reply from our team (Callum and Jamie) to leave just two points in it – 3-7 to 2-8 – with five minutes to go. Luckily, Evan Lane finally killed off the Mallow resistance when his shot beat excellent ‘keeper Fionn Hefffernan on 56 minutes, and we held out to the end, with excellent defending once again from Rory Lynch, Cormac Fitzpatrick and David Buckley in the ‘red zone’. Two down, one to go!

Team: Ben Budds, Ben Fogarty, Rory Lynch, Cormac Fitzpatrick, David Buckley, Jamie Fogarty, Jack Flanagan, George Walsh, Aaron Fitzgibbon, David Buttimer, Paudie Mackey, Evan Lane, Callum Martin White, Eoin Brenner, Colm Landers. Subs: Rory Motherway, Ciaran Brennan, Evan Lane, Conor Meade, Danny Fitzgerald, Daniel Walsh, Tommy Morrison.
