U21 Football Championship
Round 2

Glenville 2.09
Erins Own  2.09

Glenville and Erin's own battled it out on Saturday last in Glenville, in round 2 of the East Cork U21 Football championship. The game was scheduled for Saturday last,  but fell victim to the bad weather. Glenville playing against the very strong wind in the first half found the conditions difficult . Erin's own were a big physical team and started the brighter. They were 3 points to the good before Glenvilles full forward Sean Desmond shot over a good point from play.  Erin's own replied with 2 more points of their own.  Tim Hegarty operating at midfield kicked a good score to close the gap. As the wind got stronger so did Erin's own play and they got through for a few good points from distance before hitting the net for a well taken goal just before halftime. We were dealt a blow when one of our defenders received a black card in this period.Young Craig O Reilly making a great save to keep the score at 1.08 to Erin's own to Glenvilles 0.02 at halftime. 
With the wind at their backs Glenville started the second half with optimism,  and James Gowen got Glenville off to a good start with a free from 50 yards.  Sean was a constant threat inside and he had 2 good points before Owen Desmond was fouled in the square fora penalty. James duly obliged and also converted a close in free. The introduction of Dan Dennehy after halftime brought more impetus to the forward line and Dan kicked 2 great points. Erin's own were starting to pick holes in our defence and forced a close in free which they converted. Sean kicked over a sublime point to put a point between the sides and then sean was put through on goal by James, the Erin's own defence brought sean down and James stepped up to rattle in his second penalty of the day.  With a few minutes to go a good break from Erin's ended with their corner forward getting in for a well taken goal, and now Erin's own were up a point.  Still time for sean to win another free and james lashed over the resulting free to tie the scores.  Shortly after referee Paddy Sullivan blew the final whistle and overall this was a fair result.  This was a tough game against a sporting Erin's own side.  Our lads progress to the semi final v castlemarter. This is down for Saturday next March 14th with venue and time TBC. This was a very good second half performance in difficult conditions from our lads
Great to see the younger players stepping up to this level and making their presence felt in the team.
Well done to the players and management.

Junior 4 Football League

Our third team opened their league campaign with a win last Sunday against Midleton.
We played with the advantage of a strong wind in the first haf and built up a 1-8 to no score lead.
The second half was played out with driving rain making conditions very difficult for both sides.
Scores were hard to find as we tacked a few late scores to end up 1-12 to 1-0 winners. Good to see a lot of young players playing their first adult game merging with some not so young and we also welcome our three new recruits to the club playing their first game for Glenville.

This Sunday the second team travel to Aghada to play home side at 12 noon.

U14 football league

Played in Ballynoe our Fe 14 team fell short at the end against a very good and physical St Catherine's side. The Saints were well on top in the early stages and built up a 1-4 to no score lead. We got into the game with some well taken scores to trail by 4 points at halftime.
We dominated a large chunk of the second half but were unable to tamper regularly on the scoreboard. At the end we fell short by a point 1-7 to 1-6. Well done both sides one good game in challenging conditions.
