U21 B Football Final v Glenbower Rovers in Caherlag on 30th April 2011
Carrigtwohill 3-7 , Glenbower Rovers 2-12

Our great run in the U21 football championship came to a cruel end in the final last Saturday evening in Caherlag when we lost out by two points to Glenbower Rovers. 

The game started brightly enough with Carrig sticking well with Glenbower for the first ten minutes, with a well take point from play from Tomas Hogan setting the tone after three minutes. This was followed by a trademark run by Jason Leahy whose effort just skimmed the right hand post and ended up wide. However the turning point in the first half came when Glenbower full forward Kevin Lane scored a goal from a penalty in the twelfth minute. This left Carrig trailing by five points by the end of the first quarter. Carrig fought back well with two points by Brendan Horgan, however Glenbower responded with three more points. Carrig missed out on another goal opportunity when Sean Forbe's effort rebounded off the cross bar. However our efforts were rewarded with the game entering the thirtieth minute Carrig launched another attack  resulting in Daniel O'Mahony clinically scoring a goal. This brought Carrig back to within three points. However once again Glenbower came back scoring two points, one from a forty five, in the two minutes of injury time at the end of the first half.


Despite an early point in the second half from Glenbower's star forward Sean Long, Carrig got more into the game more with three points from frees by Brendan Horgan. However Glenbower demonstrated  some very good accuracy from play when they added another two points before the game entered the last ten minutes. Kyle OShea scored a super goal when he picked up the ball just inside the forty five and managed to carry the ball all the way through before squeezing the ball between the goalkeeper and the left hand post.
This left Carrig just two points behind with seven minutes left on the clock. However not for the first time Glenbower came back strongly again scoring another goal which put the game beyond Carrig. The game ended with two scores for Carrig in injury time with Daniel O'Mahony scoring a long range point and Brendan Horgan converting a penalty after Kyle OShea was brought down in the square. However despite the late rally Carrig ran out of time and left the field losing by two points on the night. 

Overall even though this was a disappointing result the team showed great character and skill to get to this stage of the competition.

Semi Final v Castlelyons in Lisgoold on 10th April 2011
Carrigtwohill 2-14  Castlelyons 1-7

Our u21 footballers had a comprehensive win over Castlelyons last Sunday evening in Lisgoold. Conditions were ideal on the evening and this led to a very entertaining game of football which Carrig's superior performance over in the first ten minutes before and after half time making all the difference. After an early injury scare to Jay Horgan, Carrig started with a couple of early points with Jason Leahy scoring one from play while Brendan Horgan quickly followed with a converted free after William McCarthy was brought down on the edge of the square. Castlelyons came back strongly after establishing a commanding presence at mid field working some strong ball into the inside forward line resulting in three points in a row without reply. Changes were made in the backline with Aaronn Gosnell moving the full back line and Alan Horgan coming in to counter their very lively forward line.With Pat OSullivan moving to centre back Carrig stepped up once again with Daniel OMahony collecting the ball in the edge of the square and working his way through to score a fine goal. This was followed by Kyle OShea's first point of the evening. Jason Leahy followed on with a trade mark goal having after some good work by Kevin Murphy. Jason quickly followed with another point from play with Castlelyons keeping in touch with two more points from play. Shortly before half time Pat OSullivan made a tremendous run through the centre to score a excellent solo point to leave the score 2-5 to 0-5 at the break.


Carrig picked up the pace once again in the second half with Sean Forbes playing a great role picking up some loose ball around the middle of the field and playing direct ball into the inside forward line. This led to two further points from frees from Brendan Horgan followed by another by Jason Leahy. Castlelyons attempted to keep in touch with another point from play however at this stage Carrig had pulled too far ahead. With Kyle OShea beginning to have a significant impact at centre forward where he score another two points from play in the second half Carrig were truly in command as the game entered the last quarter. Scores continued through Kevin Murphy and two more frees from Brendan Horgan. Castlelyons came back with their only goal of the game in the final ten minutes however Carrig quickly replied with substitute Tadgh Meghan putting over the final score of the game from the right wing to finish what was a highly disciplined performance by our backs with Paraic Hogan once again marshalling our full back line resulting no scores being conceded from frees for the first time in four games. This was a direct result of some  We now play Killeagh in the final on Saturday 30th of April with the time and venue to be agreed.

Championship v Genville in Lisgoold on Saturday 26th March  2011
Carrigtwohill 2-08 Glenville 1-08 

Click for more photosOur U21 football team over came a very tough challenge versus Glenville in Lisgoold last Saturday afternoon to progress to the semi final stage of the championship. Carrig struggled to get up the pace of the game in the opening quarter and we found ourselves two points down before we opened our account with a well executed goal by Brendan Horgan from the edge of the square. Glenville responded with two more points one from a free and another from play, however Carrig kept in touch with a pointed free by Brendan Horgan along with a well taken point from play by William McCarthy. The turning point of the first half came when Glenville's centre back Anthony Cronin, who was their most impactful player, scored a goal after one of his many runs into our defence. Glenville managed to tack on another point before Brendan Horgan managed to convert a long range free just before half time. Carrig were guilty of some very wasteful shooting throughout the half. The half time score of Carrig 1-03 to Glenville's 1-05 was a fair reflection of the first half and could have been much worse except for some excellent defending by Paraic Hogan who marshaled the full back line very well on the day.


The start of the second half saw Tomas Hogan making a great run through the centre to land a very good point and this helped to raise the team. With Aaron Gosnell moving to centre forward, Pat O'Sullivan moving to centre field and with Daniel O'Mahony contributing well at centre back Carrig managed to take a greater command of the game. Our forwards began to win more possession with both Orry O'Donoghue and Kevin Murphy and substitute Jack Barden causing significant trouble for the Glenville defence. The turning point came with Carrig's second goal after some very good passing put Aaron Gosnell through. He finished clinically to the back of the net. Glenville tried to keep in touch but were limited to only three points in the second half due to much disciplined defending by the Carrig backs.  Brendan Horgan added on two more points with Aaron completing the scoring for Carrig with a well taken point. One of the most pleasing aspects of the game was that Carrig only conceded one point from frees which is an indication of the discipline of the team on the day.

Scores: Scores: Brendan Horgan 1-5 (0-4 f), Aaron Gosnell (1-1),William McCarthy, Tomas Hogan (0-1) each.

Team: Tom Mullaney (capt), Willie Conroy, Paraic Hogan, Colm O'Donovan, Alan Horgan, Daniel O'Mahony, Jay Horgan, Tomas Hogan and Tadgh Meghan, Kevin Murphy, Pat O'Sullivan, Orry ODonoghue, Aaron Gosnell, Brendan Horgan, William McCarthy.

Championship v Fr O'Neill's in Castlemartyr March 19th 2011
Carrigtwohill 2-8 Fr O'Neill's 0-5 

Our U21 football team recorded the clubs first championship win of the season with a well deserved win over old rivals Fr.ONeills at a rain swept Castlemartyr on Saturday afternoon.  Carrig settled well in the first half with two long range frees being converted by an inform Brendan Horgan. Fr. O Neills fought back with two points from play for themselves to bring the sides level after the first 10 minutes. Carrig lost the services of Willie Conroy with an injury early on the first half and Aaron Gosnell did a fine job filling in for Willie in the corner back position. As the half went by Carrig took command of proceedings with points from both Kevin Murphy and Brendan Horgan putting a bit of day light between the teams. Fr.O Neills were kept to only one more point from a free in the first half with some very good defending by Daniel O’Mahony and Jay Horgan in the half back line. Our centre field took more control with Pat OSullivan making a difference when moving there from centre forward.The turning point in the first half came with Sean Forbes following a long ball from a free into the square to bury it into the net. At half time Carrig were 1-6 to 0-3 ahead.

With the introduction of Alan Horgan and Jason Leahy at the start of the second half Carrig drove on once again with an early point from Brendan Horgan. The game was put beyond Fr.ONeills with a well executed goal by Jason Leahy after some great work by Jay Horgan. Fr. O Neills never gave up and continued to press forward in the last quarter, however with some very good defending by our backs and mid field pairing they had very little return of just two points being conceded by Carrig in the second half. It was fitting that the last score of the game fell to Brendan Horgan, who converted another free and he finished with a personnel tally of 0-6 on the day. The team now progress to the next round and play Glenville in Lisgold next Saturday afternoon.

Challenge v Glanworth in Carrigtwohill April 3rd 2011
Carrigtwohill 2-08 Glanworth  1-11 

Our u21 footballers continued their unbeaten run to four games in a very competitive game versus Glanworth in Carrig on Sunday evening. As well as having most of the panel available for the game a number of our over 21 footballers also took the opportunity to get some much needed game time.

After a slow start which saw Glanworth moving into a two point lead early on Carrig began to get more into the game with a point from a free by Brendan Horgan after Cian Rohan was fouled. Our first point from play came from Jason Leahy who looked very sharp in the first half. Kevin Murphy was fouled on his way through with Brendan Horgan converted the resultant free. Glanworth scored an opportunistic goal towards the end of the first half and were guilty of some very wasteful shooting with the wind to their backs for the first thirty minutes. At half time Carrig found themselves 0-4 to 1-5 behind. 

The advantage of the strong breeze in the second half helped Carrig recover some of the lost ground early on with Brendan Horgan scoring a well taken goal following some very good work by Robbie White. William McCarthy was then fouled for a free with Brendan converted. A well taken point by Patrick Ahern brought Carrig level entering the last quarter.  After a further exchange of points Jason Leahy scored a goal before Daniel O' Mahony added a couple of more points. Glanworth squared the game with their final point before referee Brian Murphy blew the final whistle

Challenge v Tracton in Carrigtwohill March 15th  2011
Carrigtwohill 2-13  Tracton 3-06

Our U21 footballers picked up a very timely win in a challenge game last Tuesday evening in Carrigtwohill. Tracton who are in the final of their divisional competition made the trip to Carrig for what turned our to be a very useful challenge game with the first round of the championship only four days away. Carrig started strongly with William McCarthy pointing early from a free followed by a point from Pat O’Sullivan and a brace of long range scores from Tadgh Meghan. Tracton pulled back with two points  and good goal of their own before points from Sean Forbes at full forward  and a opportunistic goal followed by a point from Jason Leahy left Carrig leading by double scores 1:06 to 1:03 at half time.

Carrig pulled ahead again at the start of the second half with three points, including two from frees from William McCarthy. However Tracton once again fought back with another two points and a very well taken goal by their full forward. Once again our U21s pulled ahead and finished strongly with further two points by Sean Forbes, with Jason Leahy adding in another goal and Pat OSullivan putting the game beyond question with the final point of the game. In summary a good and timely run out with Carrig scoring 2:09 from play.

Challenge versus Kilmurray in Carrigtwohill February 4th 2011
Carrigtwohill 1-07 Kilmurray 2-08

Last Friday night the club hosted Kilmurray for its first game under lights for 2011. Kilmurray were playing their fifth challenge game of the year while this was the first opportunity for our own U21 football team to get a run out. We had some new debutantes to the grade with both Jack Barden and Jay Horgan starting their first game at u21 level. We also had Sean Forbes and Alan Horgan back playing football after taking a break during last year and both players made a solid contribution on the night.The weather conditions weren’t conducive to a good game of football with a strong wind blowing favouring  Kilmurray in the first half and by half time we found ourselves five points to no score down. The majority of the Kilmurray scores came from frees in the first half with some fantastic goal keeping by Tomas Mullaney and strongs displays by Paraic Hogan, Colm O’Donovan and Pat OSullivan in the backs keeping us in touch by half time.


This was truly a game of two haves with Carrig making the most of the conditions in the second half as we began to get some useful passages of play together. Daniel O’Mahony came on half time teaming up with Tomas Hogan at centre field and allowed Tadgh Meghan move to wing forward position to give more power up front.The recovery started with a couple of points from Brendan Horgan  followed by one by Cian Rohan having moved up to corner forward at the second half. Cian was then fouled for a penalty which Brendan clinically put away and we began to push forward and impose ourselves on the game. Kilmurray came back with a couple of points followed by a goal as gaps appeared in our defense. However Carrig kept on plugging away with Sean Forbes putting over a couple of points as well as Ore O’Donoghue , who had a great game, putting over another score. Kilmurray came back with another goal and put the game beyond Carrig. However that didn’t stop Carrig efforts ,with Liam Barry working hard at corner forward and William McCarthy putting over the final point with the final attack of the game.


Overall a good start for the U21 football team with lots of positive to pick from the game, especially us scoring six points from play versus Kilmurrays return of just four . We are due to play championship versus Fr.ONeills on the 19th of March and will look to team up with the juniors for training under Niall Calahane on Wednesday nights. We also plan to have at least two more challenge games to help make us championship ready prior to our first round.   


Thanks to Niall Barrett for refereeing the game on the night and to Dave Carroll for making sure everything was on hand for the team and selectors.

Scores: Brendan Horgan 1(pen): 2, Sean Forbes 0:2, Cian Rohan, William McCarthy and Orie ODonoghue 1 point each.
