Fe 12 C3 Football League vs Ballincollig Weds May 3rd 

Played in Trabeg the Fe 12 C3 team had a tough hour against a very good Ballincollig selection.

In the end they lost 6-05 to 1-02 but the score line doesn’t tell the full story of the game.

In the second half St Michaels used the wind well and picked off some great long rang points. Nemo went for goals when points were on offer. In the end St Michaels had a 3 point win on a score line of 3-11 to 5-02. It was an excellent work out for both teams and we thank St Michaels for hosting.

Fe 8 Hurling Blitz Sat May 6th 

The Fe 8 hurlers travelled to Bishopstown for a hurling blitz last week. With communions on in Turner’s Cross they were depleted.

Many thanks to our hosts Bishopstown.

Fe 16 B2 Hurling League vs St Catherine’s Sun May 7th 

The Fe 16 boys entertained St Catherine’s last Sunday in a great game of hurling. Our visitors started brightly and soon were 3 points ahead. But thanks to placed balls from Patrick Campbell and Alan Barry Nemo were soon back in the game. The rest of the first half was a really close affair with the sides trading scores regularly. At half time St Catherine’s led 1-07 to 1-05. On the turn over Nemo struck for a goal and two points on quick succession – including a cracking score from Graham Stack - to give them a 3 point lead. With center back Colin Twohig playing really well things looked very positive for Nemo. But St Catherine’s had time to get back into the game and they scored the next 6 points without reply. Nemo started to panic and went for goals when easy points were on offer. Forwards Matthew Kearney, Finn Fhinncadh, David Cotter and Alan Barry all had great goal chances. The St Catherine’s goalie was excellent and made 3 great saves. In the end Nemo lost by a single goal. Final score was 1-14 to 2-08 for the visitors. This was a very positive performance from the Nemo boys and if they had some luck they might have got something from the game. It augers well for the rest of their league campaign. They will take a break from games now until after their exams.

Good second half by the Nemo girls.
