COISTE NA NOG
Mitchelstown and Glanworth played an entertaining Coiste na nOg (Northern) Under 14 A FC quarter final at Kilworth on Monday evening. Exchanges were close all through even though Mitchelstown got through for 5 goals. Glanworth were unlucky not to breach the Mitchelstown goal line on a couple of occasions but some very good defending by Michael Lewis, Killian Roche and an alert keeper Cathal O’Sullivan kept a clean sheet. James Mullins was outstanding for the winners at midfield. His fielding, accuracy and general teamwork were very important in this win. Glanworth had a very good centre forward in John O’Sullivan with Jack Coughlan, D J O’Flynn and Stephen Condon others to catch the eye. The winners opened the scoring after 7 minutes when Sean Walsh put James Mullins through for a goal. Glanworth replied with two John O’Sullivan points. Both sides missed some chances with ‘Town having their second goal in the 23rd minute when Ronan Murphy, Sean O’Sullivan and Gavin Browne worked well but Glanworth keeper Michael Blackburne saved well only for the rebound to come to the well placed George Pendle who made no mistake. Sean Walsh added a point that left Mitchelstown 2-1 to 0-2 clear at the break. On the resumption Glanworth tried very hard to get back on terms. They found it very hard to make any progress up front as Mitchelstown won most of the high balls and worked their way well out of defence. Gavin Browne pointed and James Mullins followed with his second goal in the 38th minute 3-2 to 0-2. Glanworth came close to a goal when Eric Hanrahan put Liam Foley through only to be denied by a superb save by Cathal O’Sullivan. James Mullins followed with a point and the same player following a high catch placed Sean Walsh for a goal in the 48th minute 4-3 to 0-2. Glanworth never gave up and they created a good number of attacks. Their forwards were very young and lacked the strength of a very solid Mitchelstown backline. Good work by Eric O’Donoghue led to a Stephen Condon point with John O’Sullivan adding another 4-3 to 0-4 with six minutes to go. Liam Foley completed Glanworth’s scoring with Mitchelstown having their 5th goal in injury time when George Pendle put Brian White through. Time ran out and it was Mitchelstown who reversed the league result and secured a semi final spot.
The Under 21 Hurlers were forced to give way to a far superior Mallow side in the Under 21 AHC championship at Castletownroche on Monday evening last. Short a number of key players the local side faced a daunting task all through where they were beaten on a 3-20 to 1-4 scoreline.
