Fe 14 Hurling Feile at St Vincents Sat Apr 21st

The Fe 14 hurlers travelled to St Vincents for the Feile qualifiers last Saturday morning. First up was Whitescross who they outscored 1-03 to 0-00. Next was Mayfield in what was an excellent game – possibly the game of the morning. In a game that ebbed and flowed Nemo eventually came out on top on score line of 3-04 to 2-03. Next they faced the home team. St Vincents were physically the stronger team and certainly had the better strikers of the ball. But Nemo stayed with them for long periods. In the end they lost 2-04 to 0-03. Their final match was against Carrignavaar. They really played well in this game and totally outplayed the opposition to win 3-08 to 1-02. Overall a great performance from the boys but in the end it was not enough to qualify. St Vincents who won all their games will go on to the finals. Best for Nemo was Brian Hayes, Ross Corkery, Billy O’Neill, Fiachra Twohig, Calum O’Neill and Sean Mulcahy. But in truth it was a real team effort as all the boys played out of their skin. Well done to all involved.

Fe 18 Camogie League vs Grenagh Sun Apr 22nd

This was the first ever game for the Nemo minor camogie team. The team is mostly made up of younger girls with just a few player on the age. With all these facts in play it was always going to be a difficult night. But the girls competed well and but for the concession of some soft goals they could have been a lot closer in the finish. In the end it was a comfortable win for the away team. But still a great occasion for the Nemo girls.

Girls Fe 14 Football Feile at Trabeg Sun Apr 22nd

The Fe 14 girls hosted the Feile qualifiers last Sunday. First up was Macroom, The girls were totally on top in this game and recorded a comfortable win. Next was Ballygarvan. This was a much closer affair and defences were on top for both sides. Nemo won this 0-03 to 0-01 but were very lucky that a late attack by Ballygarvan saw the ball hit the crossbar. With their group games both won Nemo qualified for the semi-final. They faced a very strong Carrigaline team. The visitors started very well and were soon 2 points ahead. But a very well worked goal late in the first half saw Nemo go in a point up at half time. At the start of the second half Nemo extended their lead with a well taken point. But Carrigaline struck back with a goal to regain the lead. The Nemo girls never panicked and they picked off a point from play and a point from a free to regain the lead once gain. Carrigaline pressed but the Nemo defence was excellent and indeed the high fielding of the Nemo goalie was particularly important as Carrigaline looked for an equalizing score. They nearly got it with a late free but the ball just whizzed wide of the post. With that the final whistle sounded and a very relieved Nemo can now look forward to the Feile final. Final score was 1-03 to 1-02. The final is scheduled for next week.

Fe 18 Football Challenge vs Cork Development Sun Apr 22nd

The minor boys had an interesting challenge against a Cork development selection last Sunday. Short a lot of regulars the result was never really in doubt. But it was an excellent run out for the wider minor panel. They scored some lovely points during the course of the game and their defence was very good. A good workout for both teams. We thank Cork for the challenge.
