U-13 HL; Killeagh v St. Colmans in Cloyne (new pitch) at 7pm on Monday Aug 4th
A large crowd supporting both clubs attended this game which was played in Castlemartyr on Saturday at 7pm. It was a beautiful evening at the ever improving facilities in Castlemartyr. While the game itself was not a classic performance by either team there were, on occasions, some great individual displays especially in the art of free-taking. Killeagh-Ita’s had a number of players who were carrying niggling injuries but they played through the pain barrier to eke out a victory and set up a semi-final clash with Carrigtwohill. They got off to the ideal start with a pointed free from Mathew Murphy. They edged further ahead by three points before Cloyne opened their account with a pointed free also. The rest of the half was very much a display of free-taking as very few scores came from open play. At the break Killeagh-Ita’s led by 0-10 to 0-08 but suffered a hammer blow just before half-time when the heavily strapped Mathew Murphy had to leave the field through injury. His replacement in the second half was Cork minor hurler Eoghan Keniry and what a start he had to his game. With the second half only four minutes old he had 1-01 from open play on the scoreboard to stretch Killeagh-Ita’s lead to five points. His goal came from a slick move down the left hand side where he combined with Gary Leahy to score a truly wonderful goal. However Cloyne stuck to their task and worked away at reducing the deficit. Their cause was helped by some silly frees given by the Killeagh-Itas team in front of goals. Cloyne chose to score points and began to put the boys in green under pressure. As the game entered the final five minutes it was there for the taking and Killeagh-Itas made the most of the opportunities given. They scored three points without reply to emerge victorious on a scoreline of 1-17 to 0-17.

Fé 11 Iomáint Watergrasshill 4-3, Killeagh-Ita’s 4-3
A very entertaining game of hurling was played in Felix Sarsfields Park in Watergrasshill on Tuesday evening last. Our team was short a number of regulars so a few Under 10s were drafted in and they played really well. In this 13-a-side game, both sides got fine scores and hurled the ball quickly up and down the field. David Buckley was very brave in goals, George Walsh and Rory Lynch were solid at the back, while Evan Lane did really well at centre back where he was ably assisted by Under 10 wing backs Rory Motherway and Darragh O’Leary. Ben Budds and Eoin Brenner covered loads of ground at midfield, while our most impressive line was our half-forward line. Daniel Walsh and Conor Meade, both U-10’s caught some great ball and got a goal each while Jack Flanagan, David Buttimer and Colm Landers also did well up front. David got the score of the game, finishing off a fine move with great passes from Eoin Brenner and Conor Meade. Having led by 2-1 to 1-3 at half time our boys had to play against the wind in the second half and held a 2-goal lead with time almost up, but two goals, the second a bullet, brought our hosts level and a draw was the final, and the fairest, result.
Team: David Buckley, George Walsh, Rory Lynch, Rory Motherway, Evan Lane, Darragh O’Leary, Eoin Brenner, Ben Budds, Conor Meade, Daniel Walsh, Jack Flanagan, Colm Landers, David Buttimer.
