Cobh Gaa Notes 21st Nov



Minor Football East Cork League Final: Cobh 1-8 Russell Rovers 1-3

Cobh minor footballers ended their league campaign after exiting the county semi final last week with a hard fought win over Russell Rovers last Sunday. Played in Shanagarry in sunny weather but on a soft pitch, the field had a big bearing on the exchanges. Cobh dominated the early play with Conor Farrell carrying on where he finished last time out taking the game to rovers. It was nearly 10 minutes before the first score was registered through captain Mark Foley. John Flanagan goaled soon after, sending the ball to the roof of the net after a goalmouth encounter assisted by Eoin Hastings who added a point on half time after an incisive move involving Darragh O’Keeffe and Tony O’Donovan. Cobh’s play was as free flowing as ever with sweeping attacking moves but over complication led to low scoring and Cobh’s defence coped well with Rovers’ forwards. Halftime score Cobh 1-3 Russell Rvrs 0-2. Foley pointed on the resumption when he found himself in space inside the 21. Rovers were not going to lie down however and a high ball was punched to the net putting the game in the melting pot, Cobh having dominated play. Tony O’Donovan continued his attacking runs taking a nice point to settle the nerves followed by points from Shane Hallahan, who again gave an exhibition of high fielding, and Cian Spriggs. Sam Stapleton was introduced at half time and distributed the ball well. Kieran Histon, Adam McCarthy and Jamie Moynihan saw out the game for Cobh thwarting Rovers late efforts to find the net. All in all a well-fought winning outing and completing an East Cork football double for Cobh minors. Well done to all involved.
