It was a fresh morning for a game of football in O Shea park. One of the league favourites Midleton were the visitors. The game started well and it was a very close contest for the first 20 minutes with both teams playing good expansive football. Blarney really took control later in the half with Luke Keogh and Michael Carey were unlucky not to put the Blarney boys in front. The Blarney keeper and back 4 were always in control.
In the second half Sean O Deadhaidh took control of the midfield and the Blarney team were really getting on top of the game and the deadlock was broken when Carey used one of his locker room tricks and took control of the ball and slotted past the helpless Midleton keeper. Blarney had a few more chances and would regret not taking one of the chances when Midleton were awarded an indirect free kick in the Blarney box which they converted.
The game was played with a good competitive spirit but on reflection Blarney deserved the 3 points. The whole team from 1 to 14 were brilliant but the coaches man of the match was Sebin Sabu. We wish the whole team and their families a Happy and enjoyable Christmas. Jose and Eoin
