Fe 15 B Camogie Championship Final vs St Finbarrs Sat Nov 11th

The Fe 15 camogie team reached the B championship final. It was played on Castle Road a few weeks ago. The first half was very competitive with the Nemo girls matching the Barrs for skill and determination. But the Barrs had the greater experience and goals just before half time put an unfair gloss on the score line. IN the second half the better stick work of the Barrs began to tell. Nemo kept trying right until the end but the Barrs were just that bit better. Nemo’s goalkeeper Meegan O’Donovan was named player of the match after an outstanding display. Overall the season was a great success for the girls and reaching the final was testament to their hard work all year. Well done to all involved and we congratulate St Finbarrs on their deserved victory.

Fe 14 C3 Football Tournament SF vs Valley Rovers Sun Nov 12th

The Fe 14 C3 team played their Tournament semi-final against Valley Rovers in Trabeg last week. Nemo were dominant early on and were 1-02 to 0-01 up at the short whistle. They should have been much further ahead only for the fact that they kicked at least 8 wide’s in the first half. This gave Valley the opportunity to get back into the game and this they did in the second half. With minutes remaining the sides were level. But Nemo managed to score two late goals, including a cracker from forward Kyle Holland, to seal the win. They now can look forward to the final against Ballincollig in a few weeks’ time.

Girls Fe 18 Football League Final vs Bishopstown Weds Nov 15th

But goals from Na Piarsaigh kept them in the hunt. The second half was a very close affair with the sides trading scores regularly. But as the half wore on Nemo took control. They got goals at vital times to put daylight between themselves and their rivals. Stil Na Piarsaigh never gave up and a late goal from them kept the tie in the meting point right until the end.

Fe 16 P1 Football League SF vs Carbery Rangers Sat Nov 18th

The Fe 16 boys had a repeat of their championship semi-final last week in Trabeg in the league playoff semi-final. In the championship Carbery were worthy winners. For much of the first half of this game it appeared as if they would win easily again. Nemo started poorly and ball handling mistakes cost them dearly. At one stage they were 9 points behind on a score line of 2-05 to 0-02. But some astute tactically switches stemmed the tide. By half time they were back in the game on a score line of 2-07 to 0-05. Still they had a lot to do in the second half. But some storming displays by midfielders Luke Horgan and Alan Barry gradually got them back into the game. Soon they were just two points behind. A surging run from center forward Robert Dillon ended up with a goal for Nemo and it looked like they were going to steal the win. But a late pointed free meant extra time would be needed to separate the teams. The first half of extra time was very close. Carbery shaded it by one point at the half time mark. But in the second half of extra time Nemo took over. Great displays by forwards David Cotter and Scott Phillpott aided by great defense work by half back Eoin Nation meant that Nemo took over. In the end they had a comfortable win on a score line of 4-17 to 2-12. But the score doesn’t reflect a game that was very even up to the last 10 minutes of extra time. Well done to both sides for providing great entertainment on the day. Nemo can now look forward to a league final against either Douglas or Ballincollig.

Fe 13 Autumn League Final vs Douglas Sat Nov 18th

The Fe 13 boys finished their season with an Autumn league final against near neighbors Douglas. Played in Trabeg in lovely winter sunshine the game did not disappoint. It was nip and tuck in the first half with both teams trading scores regularly. Most notable was Nemo’s ability to score goals whereas Douglas seemed better at point scoring. The second half continued where the first half left off with end to end drama. Both goalkeepers were excellent, especially the Douglas keeper who pulled off a series of fantastic saves. The Nemo keeper also played his part saving a penalty late in the second half. A late goal for Nemo finally settled the result as the Douglas boys ran out of time. Final score was 6-07 to 2-14 for Nemo. A great result and a great game. Well done to both teams for the high standard of football displayed. It augers well for Feile next year.

The early exchanges were very close with scores hard to come by. Nemo appeared to have the upper hand and at half time they led by a point 0-08 to 1-04. The second half continued in the same vein. But a second goal for Eire Og made the challenge even harder for Nemo. But they hung on and scoring a last minute free they managed to force the game to extra time. Extra time was as close as regulation time. It looked like Nemo had scored the winner with a well-executed goal but Eire Og struck for a green flag straight after to push ahead by a point. Eire Og added another point and Nemo were now looking for a goal. The chance didn’t come and Eire Og ran out winners. We wish them well in the final. For Nemo it was the end of a long season. They played very well on the night and throughout the season and they can be rightly proud of their efforts against an excellent Eire Og side.

Fe 15 P1 Football Challenge Cup Final vs Inisscarra Mon Nov 27th

The Fe 15 footballers finished their season with the challenge cup final against rivals Inisscarra on a cold Monday night in Trabeg. Games between these two sides are normally very close and we were expecting a tough contest. But Nemo were out of the blocks straight away. Points from forwards Patrick Campbell, Jack O’Brien and Robert Dillon in the first few minutes set the platform for a blistering 20 minutes. Nemo were totally on top in midfield with Rory Landers and Alan Barry dominant. Add in the center back Charlie Coughlan and it was all going one way. By half time Nemo had built up a sizeable lead. To their credit Inisscarra regrouped and put in a fine battling display in the second half. They never gave up. But the damage had been done by the lethal Nemo forwards in the first half. In the end Nemo were comfortable winners. It was a great way for them to finish their season with some P1 silverware. Well done to all involved.
