ST.COLMCILLE’S EDGE OUT NENAGH CBS IN THRILLER

On Monday 22nd of April St Colmcille’s PS, Templemore and Nenagh CBS locked horns in the first round of the Cumann na mBunscol U13A Hurling Championship. Bishop Quinlan Park, Borrisoleigh was the setting for this epic encounter, even if the score-line didn’t suggest so. St Colmcille’s started with the aid of a strong breeze but it took them a while to settle into their rhythm. Wasteful shooting and the sterling efforts from a Nenagh CBS defence, led by Barry Coffey kept them at bay. At the other end Ciarán Hoctor and Ben Collins were star performers in a hell’s kitchen like defensive unit. Nick Keane broke the deadlock with an accurately struck free and it proved to be the only flag raised in the opening half. At half time both teams received words of encouragement from their respective teachers. The second half started in a welter of excitement and three quick fire points from super sub Ali Aissou, Martin Bergin and another Nick Keane free seemed to sway the tie in Templemore’s favour. Barry Coffey struck two amazing long range frees to keep Nenagh CBS firmly in the hunt. As time ticked by the Nenagh CBS forward line piled on the pressure but the back-line from Templemore stood firm and did not falter. Referee Seamus Tynan blew the final whistle to the relief of the Colmcille’s brigade who had definitely got out of jail. The final score read St. Colmcille’s, Templemore 0-4, Nenagh CBS 0-2. Scoil Ailbhe lie in wait in the long grass for both teams, surely the bookies favourites to top the group and claim back to back titles in June. MOTM Nenagh CBS - Barry Coffey. MOTM St. Colmcille’s- Ben Collins

SCOIL MOCHAOMHOG NAOFA & ST. MARY’S CLONMEL MATCH REPORT BY TOM MAHER 5TH CLASS SCOIL MOCHAOMHOG NAOFA

It was Tuesday 30th of April and we had a match in Clonmel GAA pitch. We left school at about 12.15 and when we got there we went into the dressing room and got togged out.Then we went out to the field and did some hurling drills. The referee’s name was Willie Barrett.  At 1.15 the match between Scoi l Mochaomhog Naofa and St. Marys School began. Jack Morrissey got the opening goal and then Diarmuid Maher scored a point. It hit the crossbar and went over. The first half finished 1-1 to 0-0. The second half began and St. Marys got their first score when they got a goal and another point. Then Max Hackett got blocked down but he still drove it over the bar. The ball was out field for a while but St. Marys got on top and scored a goal and 3 points. Max Hackett replied with a free from midfield and then Max got another free from the back line. This time he lobbed it into Diarmuid who caught it and scored a goal. Max got to the puck-out again, soloed up the wing and stuck it over the bar. Darren Flood got the next puck-out and burst through the defence to stick it in the roof of the net. Finally St. Marys got another point before the final whistle blew. The final score was 4-4 to 2-5.

 

NENAGH CBS V TEMPLEMORE MATCH REPORT

This Report was a joint collaboration between Sean Phelan, Conor Hennessy, Dylan Murphy, Conor McMahon and Paul White-Ryan. Everyone was hyped for this occasion as Nenagh never won an u13 match in 5 years. We came into school at 9:10 and the adrenaline was pumping. We couldn’t wait to get on the bus.  At 12:00 we heard Mr. Ryan say on the intercom “Please walk down to the bus quietly”. We got our gear and made our way down to the bus. We threw our stuff into the boot, and we hopped into our seats. We set off at once. We were very quiet on the way to Borrisoleigh, and that’s when we knew we were concentrating. We arrived in Borrisoleigh hurling field at about 12:30. The Nenagh coach gave a quick speech in the dressing rooms on what we had to do, called out the team; we put on our jerseys and went onto the field to warm up. The team for Nenagh was Dylan M, Dylan A, Liam H, Conall R, Josh G, Barry C (Capt.), Brian C, Conor H, Seán P, Adam B, Gavin D, Dane R, Seth S, Stevie H, Cian G. The ball was thrown in at 1:00 pm. Nenagh took the immediate advantage and tried to get a quick point at the start of the half but failed. From then on Templemore had the edge. Most of the ball was in the Nenagh half. But Nenagh gave away a soft free and the Templemore centre-forward wasn’t going to miss. During the half Barry Coffey accidentally pulled across Conor Hennessy’s wrist. The score at half time was 0-01 0-00 to Templemore. Jamie Cottrell was brought on for the injured Conor Hennessy by Seanie Brennan. Jamie Cottrell was midfield with Seán Phelan. So in the second half Templemore got three quick points off the back and poor Dylan Murphy could do nothing about it. But Nenagh struck back. Barry Coffey popped over two quick frees. Nenagh made some bad decisions like changing their free taker. What felt like last play Nenagh had one chance to score a goal to win the game but they didn’t have the bounce of the ball and Templemore came away victorious and the final score was 0-04 to 0-02. Nenagh were very disappointed after the match as they were playing favourites Thurles next in a do-or-die game in Scoil Ailbhe. So we set off back to Nenagh. The bus was deadly silent on the way back. There weren’t any people talking. Sir thanked us for making the journey over to play Templemore. We were back at 3:00, incredibly disappointed, but on the good side, we got no homework off Sir.
