U14 footballers capture county féile title

Magnificent Millstreet were crowned Cork U14 B Feile Football champions after edging Killeagh/Itas in a titanic struggle in Mayfield last Sunday evening.
Millstreet supporters in the large attendance enthusiastically voiced their appreciation as Millstreet took the spoils on a narrow 3-5 to 2-7 triumph. From a marvellous encounter adorned by brilliant passages in play, Millstreet weathered a late Killeagh offensive to land the spoils.
Millstreet tore into the fray from the first whistle and seized the initiative from a well worked goal netted by Kevin Sheehan. Killeagh attempted to find their feet yet poor shooting limited their progress.
Wind assisted Millstreet were sharper and drove home their dominance on a goal netted by substitute Thomas Sheehan for Millstreet to enjoy a 2-4 to 0-3 grip at the interval. Though Killeagh attempted to pick up their game, Millstreet held their own and maintained a two goal grip at the three quarter stage.
Killeagh proved themselves battlers and a goal threw the issue wide open. Back came Millstreet and a defence splitting move saw Kevin Sheehan blast home a terrific goal.
Victory appeared to be safely in Millstreet’s hands but Killeagh weren’t done yet and a second goal rose their spirits. In the concluding minutes, Killeagh tried desperately to rescue the situation and two additional points left the minimum between the sides.
Time ran out and Millstreet stood firm to enjoy a narrow but deserved win, team captain Kevin Crowley accepting the trophy from County Juvenile GAA Chairman Tony O’Mahony. The successful Millstreet panel included Kevin Crowley, Eoin O Callaghan, Eoghan Daly, Alan Murphy, Robert Kelleher, Paul Sheehan, Donal Linehan, Diarmuid Fraser, Len Murphy, Kevin Sheehan, Beircheart O’Connor, Mark O’Donovan, Daniel O’Brien, Frank Dineen, Cian Dennehy, Rory O’Connor, Liam Cronin, Tadgh O’Callaghan, Stephen Crowley, Shane Dineen, Darragh Murphy, Donough Murphy, Donal O’Connor, Andrew Roche, Kevin Linehan and Padraig McCarthy.
