Minor Non-Exam Football League vs St Michaels Tues May 16th 

The minors continued their non-exam football league last week with an excellent contest away to St Michaels. Nemo were behind for nearly all the game and really never looked like winning until the last few minutes. They pounced for two late goals to secure the victory. Final score was 3-09 to 1-11. To be fair to St Michaels a draw would have been an appropriate result but Nemo will take their luck on this occasion.


Girls Fe 12 B Football League vs Eire Og Thurs May 18th 

The Fe 12 girls B footballers continued their winning ways last week. They had a comfortable 3-10 to 1-03 win over a game Eire Og side. It was good to see the girls kick some excellent points on the night. Well done to them.


Fe 12 P1 Football League vs Na Piarsaigh Fri May 19th 

The Fe 12 P1 footballers travelled away to Na Piarsaigh last Friday night. They struggled in the first half and kicked a lot of wide’s. But eventually they started to find the range. They led 0-08 to 1-01 at the break. It was all to play for in the 2nd half but Nemo took over completely. They kicked some great points after some very good teamwork. Na Piarsaigh stayed in the game thanks to a penalty. But in the end with Nemo on top in midfield they began to pull away. Final score 3-17 to 2-02.


Fe 10 Hurling League vs Whitechurch Sat May 20th 

The Fe 10 hurlers entertained Whitechurch last Saturday. Nemo had 21 players participating and they all played very well. The game itself was very competitive. But the Nemo boys had the edge skill wise and managed to pull off a great 2-04 to 1-00 win. A welcome hurling win for Nemo underage. Well done boys.


Fe 8 Hurling Blitz Sat May 20th 

The Fe 8 boys travelled to Passage last Saturday for a hurling blitz. 25 Nemo boys participated. They played selections from Blackrock, Douglas and Bishopstown. All the games were very competitive with Blackrock being the best team they played. They played 9 games in total, winning 5 and loosing 4. The boys had a great time and really enjoyed the hurling. Many thanks to Passage for hosting the event.


Fe 9 Hurling League vs Bandon Sat May 20th 

The Fe 9 hurlers travelled to Bandon last Saturday for a league game. Nemo had 22 participants. Two teams were formed and both Nemo Dubh and Nemo Glas acquitted themselves very well. They won both games and played some excellent hurling. The games were very even but Nemo just about had enough scores on the board to win both. A very good experience for the boys.


Girls Fe 14 A Football League Final vs Eire Og Sat May 20th 

Played in Bishopstown this was the mid Cork A Fe 14 league final. It turned out to be a fitting final to end the league. This was a game that Nemo were favorites to win but Eire Og really took the fight to them. Nemo struggled in the first half. They did get a goal just before half time to lead by a single point at the short whistle. In the second half they turned to play with the elements but Eire Og battled really well – especially in midfield.  But for Nemo goalie, Ally Mullins, they could easily have shipped a few goals. She pulled of vital saves at vital times to keep Nemo in the game. What all this meant was the final was in the melting pot right to the end. Nemo were behind by a point late in the game when they won a 20 meter free. The ball was destined to go over the bar and draw the game but it dipped at the last second and deceived the Eire Og goalie to drop into the net. This put Nemo 2 points ahead and forced Eire Og to look for a goal in the last few minutes. Nemo managed to hold out - just about - for a great league win on a final score of 3-03 to 1-07. It was a close run thing and great credit must go to Eire Og for making it such an exciting contest. The Nemo girls now progress to the county quarter final against Mourneabbey next Sunday. Well done to all involved.
