Cobh Gaa Notes 17th Oct



Football League success for U14s. The Cobh U 14 Hurlers and footballers  had an eventful  week to finish off their season. On Monday night the hurlers took on Cloyne in the league semi final in Cobh. They started very positively and took control of the first half leading by 4 points after twenty minutes with a well taken goal by Liam Harte and some good long range frees by Darragh Kelleher. But the game turned just before half time when the Cloyne goalkeeper made a great save and from the resulting clearance Cloyne scored a goal. It was nip and tuck all through the second half with never more than one score between the sides. Cobh looked to have the initiative after an Adam O’Donovan goal but Cloyne pulled it back to go into the lead again. Cobh points from Patrick Fingleton, Liam Harte, Shane Cullimore and Glen O’Sullivan were matched by Cloyne scores as we approached full time  We looked to be heading for extra time after Darragh Kelleher equalised  from a free on the stroke of normal time but it was not to be and Cloyne scored a point two mins into injury time to deny Cobh a place in the final, (Score 2-12 to 2-11) Cobh had great performances on the night from all the team in particular Mark Hayes, Stephen Coffey and Seán  O’Connell

On Wednesday the Footballers travelled to Glanmire to take on Bride Rovers in the league final. Confidence was high after a win over Midleton in the semi final the week previous. On the night Cobh started slowly with scores level at 1pt each after 10 mins. But as the game went on Cobh go into their stride and 3 goals from Liam Harte, Chris Lynch and Keith Donnachie followed by points from Darragh Kelleher, Cian McNamara and Glen O’Sullivan   effectively kill off the game going into half time. The second half saw Bride Rover put up a brave fight but further scores from Killian McKevitt, Killian Histon, Brendan O’Driscoll and Neil Harte ensured the silverware went to Cobh, We had a great team performance on the night from all the players lead by captain Adam Devlin and ably assisted by Shane Cullimore, Keith Donnachie, Cian McNamara, Liam Harte and Charlie Flemming. Final score 5-10 to 1-6 City U15 Hurling c’ship final. Cobh lost out by 4 points to Bishopstown in a competitive final which could have gone either way.
