Minor P1 Football League vs St Michaels Weds Sep 7th

In what could be a dress rehearsal for the minor championship decider, Nemo took on St Michaels in Trabeg recently. The first half did not go well for Nemo and they conceded some soft goals. They regrouped at half time and put in a much better performance in the second half. Indeed they had several chances to win the game. In the end they lost by 2 points on a score line of 2-13 to 3-12. The second half performance was very encouraging.


Fe 14 P1 Football League vs Carrigaline Thurs Sep 8th

The Fe 14 boys P1 team finished their league campaign with a fantastic display against Carrigaline. In testing conditions under lights In Carrigaline the boys dominated right from the start. But they found it difficult to convert their possession into scores. At half time they led by 2-03 to 1-01. The second half was excellent from the Nemo boys – especially their defense. They restricted the home side to just two points in the second period. Up front they began to find the range more often than they had in the first half. In the end they recorded a well-deserved 5-07 to 1-03 win. Although they finished 5th in the table – just outside the playoff places – they certainly played their best football of the year in this match. The team’s mentors were very pleased with their efforts on the night. Well done all.


Fe 14 Camogie vs St Finbarr’s Thurs Sep 8th

The Barrs provided an excellent challenge for the girls as they prepared for their upcoming championship game. Indeed they led by 2-04 to 0-01 at half time. The more experienced Barrs outfit upped the ante in the second period and won in the end. But it was an excellent work out for the Nemo girls who continue to improve with every outing. Many thanks to the Barrs for providing the challenge.


Fe 13 Austin Stacks Football Tournament Sat Sep 10th

The Fe 13 boys took part in the annual Austin Stacks football tournament this month. They started the tournament with a tough game against Enistyimon of Clare. The exchanges were very even in the first half and Nemo were just a point down at half time. But the concession of two goals early in the second half put the Clare team in the driving seat and they eventually won by 5 points. Next up for Nemo were their hosts – Austin Stacks. Stacks were excellent and Nemo struggled to deal with them. In the end they lost comprehensively. They still had a chance to reach a semi-final when they took on Killarney outfit Legion. It didn’t look good for Nemo at half time as they trailed 1-06 to 0-01. But in typical Nemo fighting spirit they never gave up. They played their best football of the weekend in the 2nd half and earned a well-deserved draw at 1-07 apiece. Unfortunately that ended their football for the weekend. But it didn’t end the fun as the boys had a great night at the Tralee greyhound track. They came home on Sunday tired but happy after having a great weekend away. Many thanks to our hosts Austin Stacks who looked after the Nemo boys and mentors over the weekend.

Fe 14 C3 Football League vs Douglas2 Sun Sep 11th

The Fe 14 C3 team completed their league campaign with a tough encounter with near rivals Douglas last weekend. Played in Douglas, the weather changed almost the minute the ball was thrown in. Nemo had the elements in the first half and made reasonable use of them. They led 0-07 to 0-02 at the break. The rain continued to bucket down in the second half making handling very difficult. Douglas made excellent use of the elements and reeled in Nemo’s lead. They scored 2 late goals to put a gloss on the score line. Final score was Nemo 0-07 Douglas 2-08. Both teams have now qualified for the league knockout stages and they will meet again in the semi-final. I’m sure both teams await this eagerly. Hopefully the weather will be kinder for that game.


Fe 16 Football Championship QF vs Douglas Sun Sep 11th

Played in Carrigaline in horrible weather conditions, this was an excellent performance by Nemo. They dominated from start to finish. At half time they led 0-06 to 0-01. They continued their dominance in the second period. Of particular note was their excellent defense which was in a mean mood on the night. They eventually won out on a score line of 2-12 to 0-04. They can now look forward to the semi-final against St Michaels which is due to be played in the next few weeks.

Everyone got a medal and a party bag and as usual there was a great atmosphere. It was very enjoyable and we thank Ballyphehane for the invite and for the excellent day out.


Fe 11 Football League Finals Sat Sep 17th

The Fe 11 footballers reached the knock out stages of their league last weekend. The finals were played in Mallow. Nemo had two teams of 11 aside. Aggregate scores would decide who went forward to the final. They meet two very strong Carrigaline teams in the semi-final and lost both games. They then played Bishopstown in a 3rd/4th place playoff. Nemo Dubh had a great 5 point win. But Nemo Glas didn’t fare as well losing by 7. All of this meant Nemo came 4th in the league. All of the boys got medals and we congratulate them on doing so well in their league.

Nemo had the better of the first half and went in 0-08 to 0-05 up at half time. But they really performed in the second half – especially in defense.
