Killeagh 4-13 Carrigtwohill 0-15
Cloyne was the venue for this East Cork Oil East Cork JAHC second round game and it couldn’t have started better for Killeagh as Johnny O’Connor picked the ball out of the sky 21 meters out, jinked to the right shaking off three Carrigtwohill defenders before sending the ball low and hard into the Carrigtwohill net.
A body blow for Carrig, but a wonderful response with three scores, a long distance point from Stephen O’Flynn who then doubled his account on the sixth minute with another placed ball effort and the sides were level on the eighth minute when Martin McConville struck a point from play. As the first half unfolded it was obvious to see that the Killeagh hurlers were quicker to the ball and taking their chances better and after three Killeagh points without reply, Killeagh then struck their second goal through Andrew Leahy and led by five points at the end of the first quarter. The sides exchanged four further points apiece before the short whistle, but it was Killeagh who definitely dominated the first half.
The pattern continued throughout the second half and immediately O’Connor and Matthew Murphy tagged on a further two points to give Killeagh a seven point lead. Carrigtwohill replied through Stephen O’Flynn with a good free, but immediately Killeagh had two unanswered point from Killian Tracy and two fine ‘65’s. The remainder of the game ran point for point, but Killeagh added two further goals through Ger Collins and a second green flag for Johnny O’Connor. Killeagh progress and Carrigtwohill bow out of the 2015 championship and it would be impossible to argue with the result as the Killeagh outfit dominated from start to finish.[DK]

League clash with Duhallow
Killeagh/Ita’s Minors welcomed Duhallow to Pairc Ui Chinnede to play a hurling league fixture on Monday 29th June. It was a perfect evening for hurling and Duhallow were the first to register a score with a point from a free. Andy was our first scorer with a great point from play. Killeagh/Ita’s dominated in the first half and when the whistle blew for the half-time break we had a very comfortable lead on a score line of 1-13 to 0-4. When play resumed Killeagh/Ita’s had made numerous personnel and positional changes. Dan opened the scoring in the second half when he raised the white flag. Duhallow scored 2-9 in the second half but it wasn’t enough to loosen the stranglehold that our minors had on the game. Sam Desmond scored two wonderful goals in the second half. With the kettle boiled the ref called time and we all adjourned to the meeting room for refreshments. It was a good game for the minors who are preparing for their next championship game against Na Piarsaigh (date and venue to be decided)
