Rebel Og East Minor A Football Championship Qtr. Final 

Aghada Vs Canovee Tuesday 18th Sept. Pairc Ui Chaoimh 4G

After a 1st round win away to Glenville the Aghada team travelled to 

Pairc Ui Chaoimh to take on Canovee. The West cork team’s reputation 

preceded them as they had not lost a match in any competetion this season. 

True to form Canovee came out of the blocks quickly and Aghada struggled 

to contain their forwards in early play. The wide open spaces of the 4G pitch 

were suiting the opposition players better than the lads in the all white strip. 

Alan Hogan scored a vital goal for Aghada to keep us in touch and moments 

later Ivan Merz made an important save to deny Canovee a goal which would 

have stretched their lead. Aghada were struggling to win any ball from kick-outs 

as Canovee made repeated attacks on the Aghada defence. At the break Canovee 

led by 3pts and the Aghada outfit had plenty of thinking to do before retaking 

the field.

From the get go Aghada came out all guns blazing in the second half and 

within 10 minutes they drew level and then forged ahead of Canovee with 

some clever points and a timely goal from Daniel McGauran. Aghada 

players were winning ball all over the pitch with Diarmuid Phelan and 

Mark McCarthy dominating possesion in the middle of the field. 

Jamie O’Hanlon keep the pressure on with some timely points while the 

sizable Aghada contingent roared their support from the Pairc Ui Chaoimh 

stands. With 10 minutes to play Canovee started to work their way back 

into the match and suddenly they were only 3 points down with momentum 

on their side. Some big clashes ensued with Aghada players putting bodies 

on the line with some desperate defending. With minutes remaining Aghada

broke out of defence and Alan Hogan put Craig Healy through one on one 

with the Canovee keeper. The resulting goal saw the match finish on a score

line of Aghada 3-9 Canovee 0-12. A great fighting result for Aghada who now

march on to meet Inniscarra in the semi final.
