The U16 girls finished off their 2020 league campaign with a hard victory against a spirited Watergrasshill outfit played in sunny Glenville Monday 21st September. This was our final round game with the girls winning all their 5 rounds.
WGH started at a blistering pace and it wasn’t until after the water break that our girls were able to come to terms with them. Our cause was not helped after the forced withdrawal of Rachel Quirke who suffered a broken finger after contesting a high ball on resumption of play after the water break. The girls rolled up their sleeves and got down to work and in the last period of the first half took control of the game and went in at the break 3 points up 1:6 to 1:3. Midleton had the advantage of playing down the hill in the second half and we were able to move the ball faster. The backline brought the shutters down on the WHG girls and allowed them very little shots on goal, forcing them to kick wide, while our forwards on the other end did the business and came through on a final score of 5:08 to 2:03. This was a very enjoyable game to watch with both teams giving it their best, but we were that bit stronger on the night. That brings down the curtain on 2020 where the U16 team is concerned but we still have some U18 games to play where some of these girls will be involved. As strange as this year is, we had a great few month with some fantastic performances. Well done girls. Training however will continue every Monday and Thursday.
Team: Kate Saunderson, Mia Tarrant (1:1), Emma O’Sullivan, Jade Fitzgerald, Rachel Ryan (1:1), Lily Kelly, Elle McManus, Isabelle Nester (1:0), Aoife Fitzgerald (2:0), Grainne Finn, Amy Murray, Rachel Quirke (0:3), Seana O’Brien, Sophie McCarthy, Aoife Mulcahy, Aisling McCarthy, Elsa Ryan, Selena O’Riordan (0:3), Kelly Quirke.
U16 v Watergrasshill
On a beautiful Sunday afternoon last, we travelled in great numbers to take on Aghada in our next league game. Midleton were on the scoreboard early which helped to settle the girls well. Great teamwork and calling for the ball ensured that it was spread evenly across the pitch and every girl worked hard to compete for the ball. The rolling on and off of all girls meant they got to play in various positions during the game. Final score was Midleton 4-03 Aghada 1-02. Thank you to Aghada for a great game. Next up for this group is a match v Inch Rovers. Good Luck girls.

Last Sunday Bride Rovers welcomed Kilworth to Pairc na Bride for their third match of the year,All the parents who could attend were treated to both an afternoon in the sun and a great match.The skills being displayed on the pitch from both teams matched the sun overhead, blistering ! As the referee called for the first water break manager Joyce rang the changes to ensure all the girls got time on the pitch, a quick chat and away the girls went for another quarter which literally flew by.The short whistle allowed both teams to catch their breath and cool down a little, before both teams swapped ends;more changes were made, with girls being moved into different positions to allow them to practice theirskills in different waysThe second half was a reflection of the first, all the girls working hard for each other, both attackingand defending, getting ever more confident in their own abilities.As the referee signaled the second water break, Joyce signaled the changes, making sure everyone played, and in various positions; from the restart to the final whistle the attitude remained the same fromthe girls, working hard for each other, regardless what position they found themselves in.Thanks to all the parents who could attend for all their support and encouragement, and to the girls, Holly, Mikayla, Alicia, Chloe, Sophie, Sadhbh, Ruby, Kendra, Kayleigh, Kate, Jasmine, Gabrielle, Ellie, Ella, Caoimhe and Brid
