Cashel Overcome Strong Ballyporeen Challenge

St John the Baptist BNS, Cashel 3-4 Ballyporeen 0-4 by Ricky Lambe, Rang 6

On 5th October 2012, the U13 Cashel Gaelic football team walked up to Leahy Park to play against Ballyporeen in their second championship match of the season.

Cashel would have to win this match to go any further in the competition. The referee threw in the ball and the game began. Ballyporeen had a very strong team, but Cashel got the first score – a point from Jake McCarthy. Minutes later, Ballyporeen were awarded a free and easily scored to make it a draw; but two points by Dean Quinlan got Cashel back in the lead. At half time it was Cashel 0-3, Ballyporeen 0-1. A few substitutions were made at half time. When the second half began, Ballyporeen were on the attack and had a few shots on goal, but these were saved by Dean O’Brien. Ballyporeen scored a point to make the gap just one point between the teams, but two goals from Aaron Moloney and a point from Tomás Skeffington settled the Cashel side.

Cashel gave away too many frees and Ballyporeen converted them easily. Ballyporeen had a chance at goal, but a heroic block by Jak Hays stopped it from going in. A late goal from Jake McCarthy sealed the deal as Cashel won 3-4 to 0-5. The starting thirteen for Cashel were as follows: Dean O’Brien, Luke White, Ricky Lambe, Tomás Burke, Dylan Byrnes, Kevin Gayson Molloy, Jak Hays, Evan Hynes, Dawid Wojcik, Dean Quinlan, Jake McCarthy, Eoghan Murphy and Tomás Skeffington.


Fantastic Performances from Clerihan Girls Footballers By Hannah Phelan & Kate Corcoran Rang 6 Clerihan N.S.

On a bright but changeable Tuesday afternoon, four U-13 ladies football teams met in Moyle Park. The heavy downpour did not put a damper on a great blitz. Clerihan N.S., Ardfinnan N.S., Grange N.S. and Rathkeevin N.S. played on the 2/10/12. Clerihan's first match was against Ardfinnan. In the first half Clerihan were winning by a goal. The second half was harder for both teams for it was lashing rain which made it harder to catch the wet ball. Clerihan's hard work paid off as they won the game by a point. There was great encouragement for the girls to win the next matches. Clerihan's second match was against Rathkeevin. Both teams struggled to keep up as the final score was a draw. Some fantastic football was played by both teams. All the girls played their best but both teams were equally as strong. The final score was 1-2 to 1-2 a piece. Well done to both teams for an excellent performance. The Grange match was Clerihan's last match. They had some very strong players but that was not enough to win. The final score was 5-2 to 0-0. That was a second win for Clerihan, who look forward to the replay against Rathkeevin on 11/10/12, edging them closer to a hopeful County Final position and victory! The Clerihan girls would like to thank their coaches Mr. Wrenn, Mr. Fahey, Mr. Ryan and Mr. Walsh for giving the girls advice and encouraging them to win the matches. Thanks to Lisa Walsh, Clerihan's fantastic captain. Well done to the backs for getting the ball out each time, to the forwards for magnificent scores and the midfielders for helping with their hard work. We would like to see that amount of effort in our upcoming replay against Rathkeevin.
