Rebel Og East Division 1 Football Championship
Carrigtwohill 1-7 Killeagh 5-12
On Friday July 15th, we travelled to Carrigtwohill to play our first championship match of the year. Results in the league were patchy for various reasons so we were more hopeful than confident of getting off to a good start. The boys showed no such fears and ran out deserving winners on a score line of 5-12 to 1-7. We started very well and raced into a five point lead but Carrig gradually whittled away our good start and with little between the sides we scored a good goal just before half time to give us a bit of breathing room. On the resumption we started well again and kept going to the finish line.
It was great to see lads who were involved last year like Jack O Connor and Diarmuid Buckley push on this year and give good accounts of themselves. Likewise with Ethan O’Driscoll and Martin Power playing their first championship match at U17 level and you wouldn’t know it. On the night 4 U15’s, Fionn Brennan played in goals and John Ogbebor centre forward, Eoin Roche and Cian O’Riordan from the bench, all had a positive impact on the match. Led by our captain Darragh O’Brien the boys are up and running but we need your support for our next outing against Erins Own this Friday July 29th at home to push us on to the next level.
Rebel Og Coiste Minor Premier 2 Hurling Championship
Erins Own 0-16 Killeagh 4-17
Last Friday, we were away again in Caherlag against Erins Own for our first hurling match. After an entertaining first half we led at the short whistle by 12 points to 6. This was a tough encounter and a high quality match. Ably led by our captain Dylan McCarthy the lads put in a good shift including our younger men Oran Cunningham and Fionn Brennan. The highlight of the first half was a great team move which led to a good point by Martin Power.
We had it all to do in the second half and the boys went about their business in determined fashion culminating in a fine goal by Sean Meade. At this stage we led by 9 points but back came Erins Own and our cushion was only 3 points heading into the last quarter. Knuckling down again we upped our game and after a fine save by Fionn Murphy we pushed for home and ran out deserving winners on a score line of 4-16 to 15pts. From the bench John Ogbebor, Eoin Roche and Tadhg Considine helped us get over the line. Now is the time to work hard in training and build on this promising start.
Rebel Og East U15 Division 1 Football League Final
Midleton 2-4 Killeagh 3-10
Killeagh travelled to Midleton on Sunday July 17th to take on table toppers Midleton in the final of the division 1 league. Temperatures were already at 20 degrees Celsius by the time the ball was thrown in at 11.00 am.
The first half was very even but a break through goal from John Ogbebor set the tone for the reast of the game. Midleton responded with a goal but the Killeagh lads kept their heads to tap over a point and finished the half by well worked team goal and slotted to the net by Cathal Brennan leaving Killeagh 3 points up at half time.
A fantastic start to the second half saw Killeagh score 1-1 without reply after Ben Geary slotted over a tight angled free and a superbly finished goal. Further points were tagged on by Ben Geary, Cian O’Riordan, Cormac Deane and Callum Power. All in all, this was a very fine display of football from Killeagh to finish off a very good week following on from their Shield hurling final victory over The Barrs last week.
Rebel Og East Under 15 Division 1 Hurling Championship
Killeagh 6-14 Kiltha Óg 3-14
Killeagh Under 15’s played their first match of Under 15 hurling championship at home to Kiltha Óg on Wednesday 21st July. We didn’t settle well and struggled for long spells in the first half. Kiltha deservedly led at the break by 3-10 to 0-5.
The second half saw an incredible turnaround. Killeagh struck early for a fantastic individual goal from John Ogbebor (who had an outstanding second half), this was quickly followed by another goal after a cool finish by Callum and a superb point from play from Cormac after a storming 60 yard run to reduce the gap to 7 points. With our defence getting on top (superbly marshalled by Oran and Cormac) and a good supply of ball going into the forward line from Cathal, Andrew and Fionn the momentum shifted. Roared on by a vociferous home crowd we scored further goals from the ever-improving Cormac Delaney (3) and a great finish from Callum along with a series of superb points from Ben saw us turn a 14 point deficit into an 8 point win.This was a big result to start the championship. The lads showed immense character from 1 to 15 to fight back after a really poor first half.
Next up is Under 15 Football Championship versus Midleton on Wednesday 26th July in Killeagh.
Team: Cian O’Riordan; Tadgh Considine, Oran Cunningham, Rian O’Connor; Alex Howey, Cormac Deane (0-1), Cathal Brennan; Andrew Brenner, Fionn Brennan (0-1); Eoin Roche, John Ogbebor (1-1), Thomas Kelly; Cormac Delaney (3-1), Callum Power (2-0), Ben Geary (0-10, 0-6f).
