Championship v Midleton in Cobh on 7th May 2011
Carrigtwohill 1-6 Midleton 1-2

Carrig storm into the semi-finals of the East Cork Football Championship.This game was played in gale force wind and rain at Cobh GAA grounds on Sat 7th of May at 7pm. But this wasn't going to deter the determination of this Carrig panel from achieving a win. Carrig chose to play with the wind in the first half and set the tone for the game by scoring a goal after just five minutes. Kyle O Shea sent a blistering shot which the Midleton goalkeeper could only parry away, the deflection was latched onto by Neil O Connor who blasted the ball into the back of the net, there was no chance of saving this one. Carrig who continued to play the superior football yielded another three points from Kyle O Shea, Danial O Mahoney, and Niall O Connor. Midleton fought back in the latter part of the first half and scored two points of their own leaving it at 1-3 to 0-2 at half time.


Carrig began the second half with a mission scoring the first two points by skillfully working the ball from the back line to the forwards Brendan Horgan taking one point and Killian McCarthy fisting another over the crossbar. Then Midleton get a penalty which is converted, this sets the game up for a nail biting finish. But the team spirit and discipline of the Carrig players persevered and there was no passing this Carrig defence. The final score came from the foot of Brendan Horgan, he pointed from a 45 against the wind. This was a superb performance by this Carrig team, they won the battle at defence midfield and in the forward line. 
Carrig go on to meet near neighbours Ligoold in the semi final.

Championship v Bride Rovers in Watergrasshill on Saturday 2nd April 2011
Carrigtwohill 2-4,Bride Rovers 1-6

Carrig win against all odds. This was a very closely contested game. Conditions were windy and wet. Carrig played against the wind in the first half. Carrig led by 3 points to 1 point after fifteen minutes but Bride Rovers were to score the next two points to leave at even terms 0-3 to 03 at half time. 


Just at the restart it rained heavily this reduced the effect of the wind advantage and Bride Rovers scored 1-2 without reply. With ten minutes to go all seemed lost for Carrig and all but for the players and management would be forgiven to feel Carrig were to lose to the old enemy again. But this Carrig football team have an attitude and wont lie down without a fight. Bride Rovers worked a ball inside the Carrig 21metre line but Carrig goalkeeper Thomas Mullaney made a marvellous one to one save the ball eventually made its way to Seanie Farrell who was been closely marked, he dribbled the ball past one player then two and with only the keeper to beat he was fouled. Brendan Horgan duely stepped up took the penalty and blasted the ball past he Bride Rovers keeper. Five minutes still to go Carrig down two points Danial O Mahony from 30 metres out floats a ball into the top left corner of Bride Rovers net. Bride Rovers bounced back and scored the next point. But Carrig had the last say and Brendan Horgan pointed from a free to settle this contest. Carrig had a tremendous team spirit and depth in their panel to see them through this difficult encounter.

League v Carrig na Bhfear in Carrigtwohill on Friday 14th October 2011
Carrigtwohill 2- 7 Carrig na Bhfear 1-12 

The curtain came down on Carrigs Jun A football campaign last nite Friday 14th under lights and heavy rain. Carrig were up against a team that were fighting for a place in the final and with a bit of luck could have won this match. At half time C/N/Bhfear had a slender lead of 1-6 to 1-4. A goal from Liam Barry, 3pts from the foot of Kyle O'Shea and a long range effort from Darren Burns keeping the home side in touch. Carrig's backline and centre field pairing kept the visitors at bay and with Tadgh Meegan finding the net from the right corner and Kerry O'Mahoney and Dominic Cronin finding their range and adding two more points this game went down to the wire.

Great credit is due to this Panel of players and mentors who showed tremendous loyalty and team spirit and kept the flag flying for Carrig football and also maintained our status at Jun A football for next season. Carrig Abu.

Carrigtwohill 1-7 Glenbowers Rvs 1-14 

Carrig put a gallant effort against table toppers Glenbower Rvs. The visiting team began very well scoring 1-3 in the first ten minutes of the game which left supporters and others feeling this could be a whitewash but this Carrig team had different ideas reacting with a fighting spirit and came back strongly to finish the first half 1-7 to 0-5. 

The second half was very competitive with both teams exchanging scores and the game was in there for the taking with ten minutes to go when Carrig scored a goal to leave 2pts between the sides. But this was not to be Carrigs day and Glenbower got the scores that sealed the game. Carrig continue to press for the all important scores to the very end. This was a great effort by Carrig and will benefit the team in matches to come.We also had a lot of new names making their mark on the scoring sheet.

League v Midleton in Carrigtwohill on Saturday 19th February 2011
Carrigtwohill 1-7 Midleton 1-10 

Another great performance by Carrigtwohill who were unfortunate not win but deserved at least a draw. Midleton who defeated last years finalists Erins Own in their first league match began this match well scoring the first point, but Carrig responded by scoring two of their own. Carrig with a lot of the possession didnt score again until the final five minutes of the first half notching up another two points leaving the game at 0-4 to 0-4 at the interval. 

When the game resumed Midleton started the better scoring two points, Carrig continued to press hard and their efforts payed off, they scored the next two points then hit the back of the net. This left Carrig with a one goal lead going into the final quarter but their lead was short lived as Midleton scored the next point and a wayward free found its way to the back of the Carrig net helped on by a two fisted punch by the MIdleton forward. This proved to be the decisive score and although Carrig fought back and dominated the final ten minutes their gallant efforts were not rewarded on this occasion. But the future looks promising.

Challenge v Tracton on Thursday 4th August 2011
Carrigtwohill 3-5 Tracton 2-11

This game was played in Carrig thurs 4th Aug. Tracton proved to be a formidable opposition and were very quickly to notch up a comfortable lead of 1-6 to 0-2 at half time. Although this scoreline did flatter the visitors as Carrig had missed a number of goal chances hitting from goalie to uprights except the back on the net. 

Carrig continued efforts and spirit to fight back paid dividends in the second half, Ross O Mahoney, Ronan Crowley and Brendan Horgan all found the back of the net with beautifully worked ball from back line to forwards. Further points from Seanie Farrell Capt, Darren Burns and Ross O Mahoney tied up the game with only minutes to go. But on the rare occasion that Tracton breached the tight effective Carrig backline in the second half they scored the winning goal.

This return game was played in Ovens thurs 21st July. We were up against stiffer opposition on this occasion. Eire Og lead by 1-2 to no score with ten minutes gone and it looked like they were going to run riot but our lads had different ideas and were soon to compose themselves firing in goals from Connor Healy, Cathal McSweeney and Peter Furlong and at half time we lead 3-6 to 1-9. 

Carrig began the second half in splendid form sending some beautiful points over the crossbar and looked to be cruising but then Eire Og struck a purple patch scoring two opportunist goals. This was only to drive our lads on more with Finbarr Browne, Christopher Horgan and Cathal McSweeney finding the back of the net.

Challenge v Kilmurry on 2nd May 2011
Carrigtwohill 0-6 Kilmurry 2-6

This game was played in blustery and wet conditions. Carrig played with the wind in the first half and dominated the first twenty minutes but the scoreboard failed to reflect this as Carrig fought gallantly to master the difficult weather conditions. Kilmurry then had their own purple patch in the latter part of the first half scoring a goal to level the game  0-4 to 1-1 at the interval. 

The second half began with Kilmurry scoring two points from placed balls. They then scored another goal which should have killed off the game but this was not the case Carrig kept battling on and were rewarded with two more points.
