Match Reports 30th April

Carraig na bhFear 2-12 Muintir Bhaire 1-08.
Carraig na bhFear recorded their second win of the Cork County Junior A Football League, after a good honest display against Muintir
Bhaire, on Saturday April 21 st in Carraig na bhFear. The story of this game was defined in the joint performance of Oisin Crowley and Paul Murphy, both players in the full forward line who
managed to score all of Carraig’s scores. Carraig started with a good tempo and were quick to get on the scoresheet. Within the first 15 minutes, Crowley and Murphy had both goaled after good approach work from midfield. Both finishes were clinical and left Carraig in front at half time, Carraig 2-06 Muintir Bhaire 0-04.

Carraig did not lessen their grip on the game in the second half. S Casey was solid at full back and the half back line of Cronin, Dorgan and Sweeney defended quite well. M Aherne and S Horgan fielded well at midfield and this platform kept a constant flow of possession heading in the direction of the “Terrible Twins”. Crowely added three more minors from frees, whilst Murphy, lena chiatog, scored three from play. Munitir Bhaire did rally and managed a good goal with ten minutes left. But Carraig finished the game well and won by a margin
of seven points. Onwards and upwards for the group, with the first round of the Football Championship only two weeks away.

Facile Victory for Carraig na bhFear Junior Hurlers
Carraig na bhFear 6-20 Killeagh 0-7

In the second round of league games for the East Cork Junior A League, Carraig na bhFear were too strong for a depleted Killeagh side on a showery Sunday morning, April 29 th at Killeagh Gaa Grounds. The encouragaing aspect about this victory for Carraig was the attitude displayed from the first puck of the ball. Intent to win the ball back when it was lost and to use it well when in possession was quite evident and as a result, scores came aplenty. The first half was a procession of scores, as J Forde, S Farrell, P Murphy and B Sheehan goaled within an eight minute period, midway through the first half. T Geaney was dominant at centre forward and the Carraig half back line was very solid under the opposing puck outs.
Half time: Carraig 4-08, Killeagh 0-03
The trend of the game continued in the second half with Carraig continuing to dictate matters. The two Forde brothers, P Murphy and P O’Sullivan tacked on a number of good points from different angles. Near the end of the game, two more majors were recorded by Peter O Sullivan and Shane Farrell and with that, the game petered out with Carraig as convincing winners. Carraig’s next outing is against Doneraile on Thursday May 3 rd in Carraig na bhFear.
