U16 Midleton v Erins Own- League
On a freezing cold evening in Caherlag Midleton U16’s took to the field to take on Erins Own in our second last game in the league. We started well moving the ball at great pace we were in control of the game but whether it was the cold (or not) we lost concentration and allowed Erins Own back into the game they were scoring points left, right and centre…..half-time couldn’t come fast enough. After a stern talking to by Paddy at the break the girls went back out and dominated from the start of the second half to the final whistle. We got our mojo back and start to do the simple things right – passing the ball and direct shooting. Hats off to Roisín O’Callaghan she was very solid as our goalkeeper tonight and Claudia Kearney was her rock at full back.
Full-time score Midleton 6-6 Erins Own 1-12

U10 Midleton v Glanmire – League

On Monday night last the 25th our under 10 girls started their season with a home game against Glanmire on a slightly cold but otherwise perfect evening for football. 27 players were available for selection with 5 girls taking part in their first ever competitive match.
We got of to a great start with a long range point. Glanmire soon after got a goal and quickly added a second goal. Midleton then got on top on possession and created a few scoring chances that went narrowly close. We went on to win a free and took an great score from it. For the rest of the first half we were on top but Glanmire stung us a quick counter attack with a lucky goal just before half time. Our girls continued to battle and showed great determination in the second half against a much stronger and tougher opposition on the night. The Glanmire goalkeeper made a great save from a penalty awarded to us early in the second half. We scored a great point from play near the left hand sideline. Glanmire continued to push forward and finished very strong and got another late goal right at the end.
Overall it was great team performance from the girls on the first game out of season. So well done and keep practicing. Both teams played their part in a very sporting and entertaining match. The game was well refereed by Ava Barry. It was great to see a big home support and encouragement for the girls.
