MIDLETON were crowned Carrigaline Court Hotel Premier 1 U14 county champions after their win over Na Piarsaigh at Páirc Uí Rinn on Saturday.
Whilst their forwards will get the plaudits it was their defence that was key to their victory. Led by the likes of Dara Scanlon and Tadgh O’Leary Hayes, younger brother of Cork star, Sean, they made it difficult all through for the Piarsaigh attack.
He was on target again and with five minutes to go, they led 2-10 to 1-7. Again Piarsaigh never gave up, with points from Coffee and O’Sullivan. Fittingly Fitzgerald got the last score though.
