Under-19 2011/12 Match Reports

League at home to College Corinthians on Saturday 18th February
Midleton 7 College Corinthians
1
2nd vs 3rd in the league tonight in Midleton, and a tight contest was expected, alas the home team didn't read the script and totally demolished the opposition and closet rivals for 2nd place in the league.
Midleton started on fire and were ahead within 2mins as some fantastic work down the left side of the park by Josh and Shane ended with a lovely cross being floated in to the box which saw Kelvin Krushel finish to the back of the net with a first time volley. Midleton kept going and went 2-0 up after Emile was brought down in the box for a blatent penalty, up stepped Jake Hegarty to finish from 12 yards with still only 15 mins on the clocK. Midleton kept pressing and passing the ball at their ease, and after some neat build up play which begun from keeper Mullins right threw the defence of James McCarthy, Chris Smith onto Andy Howick resulted in a corner kick for the home side, from this delivery from Andy the ball fell to Kelvin at the edge of the box where he duly dispatched the ball to the back of the net to score his second of the night. Their was 15 mins left in the half and really midleton should of added to their lead but the Corinthians keeper was in inspired form to leave it 3-0 at the break.

Apon the restart Midleton made it 4, when Jake hit a superb shot from all of 35 yards which nestled nicely in the top corner of the net. Unfortunately Midleton switched off at the resulting tip off and a rare surge down the right side saw a cross come into the box where Dave was un-fairly adjudged to have handled the ball, a penalty was a result which Corinthians scored to make it 4-1. Midleton's response was instant and after some great play down the right Andy Howick crossed a ball to the back post where Emile Pekela finished to cap a good personal performance with a goal. The home team could of very easily settled for this scoreline but with Keelan Kennedy and Josh Twadourous putting in constant running and Jake dominating the midfield it was only a matter of time before another goal was scored, and so it fell to Keelan Kennedy to finish neatly after some more good play from Kelvin and sub Raymond "the wand" Savage sent him clear just outside the box where he cooly finished low to the back of the net. The last goal of the game came about when Midleton again played out from the back and worked the ball up the left side of the field almost barcelona-esqe(only better) through James Mc who fed Josh who in turn found Kelvin and after some magic played a through ball for the on rushing David ''fox' Walsh to finish with aplomb. In truth this game should of been a lot closer going by the form guide but this team finally clicked on the night and deservedly won on a scoreline of 7-1.

A great team performance, with Mullins in goals always in control ,the back four of; McCarthy, Smith, Connaughton, Harrington comfortable at all time's and midfield of Howick, Hegarty, Kennedy and Twadourous, honest, hardworking and tidy on the ball, and Pekela and Krushell lethal in attack and of course the ability to bring on the likes of Walsh and "'the wand" off the bench is always a luxury. As it was match of the week in the Evening Echo, Kelvin Krushell deservedly picked up the trophy, and I have been told took a lovely photo for the echo. Also a special thanks to Southern Tyres for sponsering the match.

 

Cup at home to Mayfield United on Sunday 5th February
Midleton 4 Mayfield United 3

Midleton hosted a very good Mayfield side Sunday morning in the last cup of the season and emerged with a 4-3 victory. Midleton started sluggish and found themselves 2 goals down after 30 mins and only for the home keeper Ciaran Mullins could of been in bigger trouble. With ten mins to go in the first half Keelan Kennedy continued his electric form and scored a very tidy finish to bring the scoreline to 2-1 at the break.

Midleton came out for the second half with renewed purpose but were caught with a sucker punch on the break and Mayfield went 3-1 ahead, not many teams would or could find a way back from this, but credit must go to this team as they never know when to stop playing football the correct way and as often happened in the past they fought back again first through a Dave Connaughton header to bring the score back to 3-2 in favour of Mayfield then an wonderful half volley from Kelvin Krushel to bring the score 3-3. Midleton were really on top now and from great play down the right hand side with Emmet Cotter and James McCarthy linking well with Keelan and Kelvin up front were causing untold problems for the Mayfield defence and sure enough the man who is in lighting form got his second goal of the game to bring the score to 4-3 in Midleton's favour. There was still ten mins to go in the game and Midleton kept going to try and extend their advantage and came close numerous times with the un-selfish running of Josh Twardous and physical presence of Jake Hegarty ( who is still waiting for his player of the month award) but alas Midleton had to settle for 4-3 at the final whistle and now await their next opponent's in the 1/4 finals where they will be hoping for a home draw.
Best on the day were Keelan, Kelvin, Jake, James, Emmet and Mullins in goals.

 

League at home to Catleview on Sunay 22nd January
Midleton 3 Castleview 4

A top of the table clash today in Knockgriffen park where the home side came out the wrong side of a 7 goal thriller. With Midleton well on top in the first half and probably should of led at half time but for 2 missed headers from Andy Howick but had to settle for 0-0 at half time, which the Midleton management were happy enough with as their team were looking the most likely to score first with some fine football.

Alas as sometime's happens in big games the team who tries to play football the correct way with the ball on the deck are sometimes caught out by some stoke-esqe direct football and it happened here as Castleviw took the lead from a corner, Midleton's response was electric and within 10 mins were leading the game 2-1 after some fabulous football and inspired finishing from first Keelan, and then Andy to put Midleton in control. Their only seemed to be 1 winner after this, but after another corner from view was only half cleared the 2nd ball was crossed back in and went wide, but as this was happening the opposing striker clashed with the Midleton keeper, and with the ball out of play the referee decided to bring play back and award a penalty which was duly dispatched into the back of the net. With midleton still in shock at the injustice that had just happened a mix up at the back left view in again to lead the game 2-3 with 5 mins to go, but this young Midleton team fought back and without hesitation kept playing the football that they knew would get them back in to this game, and when Kelvin Krushell controlled the ball in the box and jinked past 2 defenders to slot the ball in to the far corner of the net.

The game was now in injury time, but there was still time for the most controversial decision of the game, when a Midleton defender cleared the ball for a throw in a good 10 yards up from the endline, the referee somehow gave a corner kick, the ball was sent into the box and with the ball in the keepers hands he was bundled over the line by 3 Castleview players like a maul that would be more akin to Thomond park.
Some how the ref gave the goal, which on top of awarding the corner and then letting the goal stand let the whole of Knockgriffen in complete shock. The full time whistle was blown, and time had run out for this brave young side who should hold their head's up high as when the chips were down they kept on playing and if truth be told they deserved more than this.
Best for Midleton on the day were, everyone!!

 

Update 16th January
No game this week but congratulations to Shane Harrington who was very impressive coming off the bench for the senior's on friday night, and also to Dave Connaughton and James McCarthy who played a big part in the juniors win in the fai cjunior cup.
Next game is at home to our main league challengers Castleview next Sunday at 2pm, hopefully we can get the result to put us in pole position in the chase for the title

 

League away to Youghal on Sunday 8th January
Youghal
0 Midleton 2
Midleton traveled to Youghal knowing a win would put them top of the table and keep up the pressure on current joint leaders Castleview and Ballingcollig.
After the long x-mass break Midleton started the game a bit sluggish, and only for two fantastic tackles from Dave Connaughton in the opening 15 mins Youghal would surely have scored, those frights seemed to wake Midleton up and with Keelan Kennedy linking up well with midfielder's Dylan and Jake we slowly came into the game. As a result of some of Keelan's good work in the box he managed to tee up Jake Hegarthy at the edge of the 18 yard line who opened the scoring with a perfectly placed finish in the bottom corner of the Youghal net, Midleton were really starting to play and with Andy Howick overcoming his 'flu' like symtoms linking well with Gloire Matki down the right side causing havoc for the Youghal defence, and with Kelvin and Shane working well on the other wing Midleton should of added to their 1-0 score at the break.

The half time team talk was a little strange as the players seemed more interested in the girls U-16 game on the second pitch than the words of wisdom from their management. Youghal had their 1 and only real chance of the game at the start of the 2nd half but Ray Savage made a fantastic save low to his right to keep Youghal out, Keelan again was very impressive and had millions of chances but couldn't find the net, in fact i think he hit the post twice, side netting once and even stopped a goal bound effort from Emile Pekla on the line (maybe he should stayed center half??). Highlight of the half was a thunderbolt from Jake that somehow the keeper got his fingers too and saved. Midleton seemed intent on getting that all important 2nd goal and safe in the knowledge that Chris Smith and Dave Connaghton were imperious at the back Midleton attacked Youghal time and time again and with the fresh legs of Emmet Cotter and James McCarthy it was only a matter of time before another goal was scored, and it was through Gloire Matki with a rare header to ensure Midlleton won on the day, and are now deservedly top of the table.
Team - Savage, Howick, Connaghton, Smith, Harrington, Matki, O'Riordan, Hegarthy, Krushell, Pekela, Kennedy.
Subs - McCarthy for Pekela 65mins, Cotter for Howick 70mins, Josh for Matki 80mins. Mullins, Walsh, Bello.

 

League away to Greenwood on Saturday 10th December
Greenwood 1 Midleton 3

Another good result for Midleton as they continue to push up the league. Midleton started very well and with great performance's from Kelvin Krushell, Andy Howick and Gloire Matiki should of been 4 up at half time but had to settle for a 1-0 advantage after Andy Howick finished off a good move to score his 5th goal of the season.

Within 3 mins of the start of the 2nd half Midleton went 2 up after some good build up play from Dylan O'Riordan set up Emile Pekela who from 14 yards out looped his effort high up over the keeper and into the top corner of the net. Midleton looked to be cruising now but with 20 mins to go Greenwood got a lifeline after a hopeful ball was punted in to the box and a free Greenwood player tapped home. But as always with this Midleton side they had a few extra gears, and after some excellent work between Gloire Maatiki and David Welsh down the right hand side saw a great ball crossed into the box where Kelvin Krushell finished with aplomb from 20 yards ala Zidine Zidane vs Bayer Levercusen in the 2002 champions league final.
So all in all a great result for Midleton and also a very satisfying performance from this promising young team! Best for Midleton on the day were Chris Smith, Emmet Cotte, Andy I'm a senior player"' Howick and an inspired Gloire Matiki.

Team - Savage, Cotter, Smith, Kennedy, Harrington, Howick, O'Riordan, Hegarthy, Krushell, Matiki, Pekala.
Subs - To-wap-a-pop-u-lous for Pekala 70, 'fox' Welch for Matiki 78.

 

League home to Temple United on Sunday 27th November
Midleton 4
Temple United 0
Midleton started this game very well and went in front after 20mins when some good play from Dylan O'Riordan set up Ola Bello who scored from a ferocious half volley 20 yards out from goal. It remained 1-0 at half time with Midleton deservedly leading at the break.
From the start of the 2nd half Midleton looked to impose themselves on the visitor's and went 2 up when Dylan O'Riordan tapped home from 3 yards to finish off a good team goal. Midleton made it 3-0 after 60mins when Emile Pekela scored his first of the day and shortly after Emile got his second to make it 4-0 for the home side. Best for Midleton on the day were Keelan Kennedy, Graz Matki and Emile Pekala.

Team - Savage, Howick, Connaghton, Kennedy, Harrington, Bello, O'Rriordan, Matiki, Krushell, 'Fox Walsh', Pekala.
Subs - Gloire Matjki for Bello, Mullins for Savage both 65mins.

 

League away to Ballincollig on Sunday 6th November
Ballincollig 2 Midleton 3

Midleton traveled to Ballincollig Sunday afternoon and came away with the three points after a tough encounter.
Midleton started the brighter and could of gone a goal up inside five minutes after some great inter-play between Keelan Kennedy, Kelvin Krushel and Jake Hegarty saw a an angled effort fly past the post, much to the Ballincollig's keeper's relief. After this though Ballincollig came more into the game and took the lead when some slack marking from a Ballincollig throw saw them score the first goal of the game. Midleton were under pressure now and conceaded a second goal, again as a result from slack marking down the left hand side. 2 down at half time and looking dead and buried it needed some home truths form head coach Martin Hickey, and first team manager Billy Walsh to inspire the troops.

in the 2nd half Midleton came out all guns blazing and got a goal back when James McCarthy finished off a great team goal which started in defence and was well worked by Jake and Dylan in midfield out to Kelvin on the left who played a great crossfield ball to James McCarthy who finished it low into the bottom corner. Midleton were well up for it now and drew level with 20mins to go when Andy Howick broke on a loose ball in the box and finished well. With the game in the balance it took a bit of greatness from Emmet Cotter to win it for the away side, collecting the ball deep in his own half Emmet spotted the keeper off his line and from 75 yards struck a wonderful effort which flew over the Ballincollig keerper's head. Midleton held on for the final few min's for a deserved away win.

Team - Mullins, Cotter, Smith, Connaghton, Harrington, McCarthy, O'Riordan, Hegarty, Krushel, Howick, Kennedy.
Subs - Walsh for Kennedy 75, Matiki for Howick 76, Pekela for Cotter 80.

 

League Cup 2nd Leg at home to Youghal United on 28th August
Midleton 4 Youghal 0
Midleton dominated this game from start to finish and the scoreline could easily have been bigger but for some missed chances and excellent goalkeeping.  The Youghal golalkeeper made 2 fantastic saves from Kelvin Krushel in the opening minutes.  Kelvin and Dylan O’riordan both hit the woodwork.  Midletons back four dealt with anything Youghal could throw at them giving Raymond Savage a quiet game in goal.  Midleton took the lead before half time when Andy Howick cut in from the right and let fly.  With his shot going wide, Emil Pekala got his head on it to guide past the keeper.

The second half continued in the same vein, despite losing Shane Harrington and Gloire Matiki to injury.  Jake Hegarty replaced Shane at centre half and played very well winning everything in the air and almost getting on the score sheet heading into the side netting from a free kick.  Dylan O’Riordan cleared the crossbar with a good effort before getting on the score sheet himself following a good solo run.  Tariq Tynan came off the bench with 25 mins to go and bagged himself 2 goals.  The first a header from a great left wing cross from Kruschel and his second rounding the goalkeeper.

Midleton now travel to Ringmahon in the league cup quarter final on Wednesday night.

 

League Cup 1st Leg away to Youghal United on 24th August
Youghal United 2 Midleton 2

The Midleton Youth team got their season underway with a 2-2 draw in front of a large crowd in Ardrath Park, Youghal on Wednesday night. Both goals were scored by Emil Pekala.

Midleton got off to a great start in the game with a goal after just 3 minutes, from Emil Pekala. However, instead of taking advantage, Midleton didn't capitalise on this, as Youghal went on to be the better team for the rest of the half. Youghal deservedly equalised with about ten minutes to half time, and then went ahead just before the break from a penalty.

The second half was a different game, where Midleton took over possession for long spells, and created a lot of goal-scoring chances. The equaliser came about 15 minutes into the half, again through Emile. However, despite hitting the woodwork, and having some very near misses, Midleton were unable to make their dominance pay.

Best on the night for Midleton were David Connaughton and James McCarthy.

Overall, this was an excellent game of football, played in a very good competitive spirit. The second leg of this tie will be played in Knockgriffen Park at 3pm on Sunday next, 28th August.
