East Cork Minor Football Plate Final
Inch Rovers 1-10 Midleton 1-1
Inch Rovers deservedly defeated Midleton in the final of the East Cork Minor Plate in a match played in Killeagh. There was a strong cross field north westerly wind which made playing conditions difficult. Despite this Inch stated the brighter and by the ninth minute had opened a three point lead. Thereafter Midleton had the better of exchanges for the remainder of the half with Charley Moore converting a free before Abby Quirke was dragged to the ground for a penalty. This was duly dispatched by Charley Moore and Midleton led at the break 1-1 to 0-3.
However six minutes into the second half, disaster struck. A miss placed pass as Midleton were attacking led to a break which eventually resulted in Inch scoring a goal. This was the break that Inch needed and thereafter Inch took control of the game as Midleton began to tire. This was the last game at this level for Lucy Lawton, Claire O’Mahony, Aoife Madden, Niamh O’Farrell, Meg O’Regan and Ciara O’Doherty and each gave their all in the game and indeed for the team and for the juniors throughout the year.
A number of the younger girls stepped up from the U-16 grade during this league and performed very well during the competition. These same girls also stepped into the breach when the Juniors came calling during the summer. Well done to all and the selectors would like to thank you for the great commitment to the club during the year. No doubt you will be tasting success in the club colours in the near future.
