RedFM Senior Hurling League
Carrigtwohill 1-13 (16) Midleton 2-20 (26)
in Carrig on Saturday, June 16th.
Referee: Patrick O’Driscoll (Bride Rovers)
Two Midleton goals inside the first fifteen minutes left Carrig with too much to do in the latest round of the RedFM Senior Hurling league.
It was an even opening ten minutes with Tomás Hogan, Padraic Hogan (free), Liam Gosnell, Brendan Twomey and Jamie McCarthy getting some fantastic scores with the aid of the breeze but Midleton matched that tally and took the lead with a close-range goal on eleven minutes. Carrig mustered a Liam Gosnell free in response but Midleton raised another green flag on fifteen minutes to leave the score, 0-6 to 2-6. Carrig responded with three of the next four points through Ollie Baverstock, Gosnell’s third and another Hogan strike to bring Carrig within four, 0-9 to 2-13. Midleton rattled over the next three scores however and a final Tomás Hogan strike at the half left it 2-10 to 0-10.
Carrig came out with purpose upon the restart and were within two points inside five minutes. First Liam Gosnell tacked over his fourth point before Ollie Baverstock was hauled down for a penalty. Shane Devlin stepped up to bury the penalty to bring his personal tally to 2-2 this year. 1-11 to 2-10 after thirty-five minutes. Carrig couldn’t build on that momentum however and the game became disjointed and eventually out of reach. Gosnell’s second free and fifth score of the evening had Carrig within five with ten minutes to go and Sean Rohan added another point with five minutes left but it wasn’t enough to put the result in doubt.
