CENTRAL PREMIER 2 FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Carrigtwohill v Midleton in Carrigtwohill, Monday 14th May 2018
Carrigtwohill 6-09 Midleton 6-09
Carrigtwohill welcomed the Magpies to West End for this fixture, which was just two and a half weeks after the Premier 1 hurling league fixture between the sides.
The match was played on ‘the old pitch’ and the bottom goal proved to be the scoring goal, as is often the case with Gaelic football matches played on that field. The bottom net bulged no fewer than ten times during this match.
Carrig had the advantage of the hill in the first half and looked comfortable heading in for the break, leading by 5-01 to 1-04, the goals coming courtesy of Daniel Murnane (two from play and two converted penalties) and Patrick Walsh.
Within ten minutes of the restart, Midleton had scored a further 4-03 to Carrigtwohill’s 1-04, the goal coming courtesy of Jamie Cotter blocking an attempted kick by the Midleton corner back to the net. The game was now a drawn match, 6-04 to 5-07. Midleton scored another goal but the home team rallied well with some late points to draw the match.
Scorers for Carrigtwohill: Daniel Murnane 4-07 (2-03 fs), Patrick Walsh & Jamie Cotter 1-0 each, Cillian Barry & Tadhg Sullivan 0-1 each.
CENTRAL PREMIER 1 HURLING LEAGUE

Carrigtwohill 8-04 St. Finbarr’s 3-04

Some lack of concentration in the second half left the city side in for a couple of additional goal but Carrigtwohill were too strong for the visitors on the evening. The pick of the goals was the final one when full forward, Jake Horgan plucked a long high delivery from the air and turning to blast it to the net.
