Fe 16 Camogie League vs Brian Dillon’s Thurs May 10th

The Fe 16 girls entertained north side rivals Brian Dillon’s in a camogie league game last week. The girls started slowly and Brian Dillon’s took advantage to put a few points on the board. At half time the girls were a few points behind. Early in the second half Dillon’s scored a good goal and Nemo never looked like getting back into the game after this. With the Dillon’s defence in a mean mood the game never turned for the Nemo girls despite their best efforts. Final score was 1-07 to 0-03 for the visitors.

Girls Fe 12 A Football League vs Carrigaline Thurs May 10th

But the Nemo girls rallied in the second half. They started to pick off some excellent points to reel in their hosts. Some of the points scored were top class. In a frantic finish both sides had chances to win the game but in the end a draw was a fair result. Final score was 2-16 for Nemo 6-04 for Carrigaline. A remarkable score for this age group.

The Fe 11 boys travelled to Inisscarra for a hurling league game last Saturday. Nemo were short a few regulars over communions etc. Inisscarra were very good and played some excellent hurling to record a comfortable win.

Nemo had the wind in the first half and they built up a healthy lead. But facing the elements in the second half was a different story. Inisscarra played some great football and reeled in the Nemo lead. In the end Nemo were lucky to hold on for a 2-07 draw. Well done to both teams for the excellent football and spirit shown on the day.

Girls Fe 12 C Football League vs St Vals Sun May 13th

The Fe 12 girls played a very entertaining league game against rivals St Vals last week. The girls played some very good football but were a little wasteful in front of goal. St Vals were more clinical and in the end had a comfortable win on the score board 5-03 to 1-03. But in truth the teams were much closer football skill wise. A good game and well played by the Nemo girls.

Girls Fe 18 Football Challenge vs Ballincollig Sun May 13th

The minor girls had their first outing of the year last Sunday with a challenge game against Ballincollig. It was a game to knock off the cobwebs and a welcome change from training. The game itself was dominated by defences on both sides. Nemo just about deserved a win on a score line of 0-08 to 1-04. A great way to start the year for Nemo and we thank Ballincollig for providing the challenge.

Fe 13 P1 Football League vs Bishopstown Sun May 13th

The Fe 13 boys travelled to neighbours Bishopstown for a football league game last Sunday. They started very slowly and within 5 minutes they were 7 points in arrears on a score line of 2-01 to 0-00. But they woke up and got into the game. By half time they were just a point behind 2-03 to 2-02. They took over in the second half and playing some excellent football they dominated the half from start to finish. In the end they won 5-08 to 2-06.

Girls Fe 14 A Football League SF vs Eire Og Tues May 15th

The Fe 14 girls played their league semi-final away to Eire Og last week. The early exchanges were very close and there was very little between the sides. At half time Eire Og were a few points ahead. The second half continued in the same manner until Eire Og broke through for a well taken goal. This was to prove decisive and with the Eire Og defence in great form they closed out the game to win on a score line of 1-12 to 1-03. This is a very good Eire Og team and the Nemo girls did very well to be so competitive for so long. We wish Eire Og well in the final. And well done to the Nemo girls for such a successful league campaign.

Fe 13 C3 Football League vs Valley Rovers Tues May 15th

The Fe 13 C3 team travelled to Brinny for a league game last week. The boys were dominant from start to finish. They had a grip in midfield throughout and they translated this into some well worked scores. In the end they recorded a comfortable win despite the best efforts of the home team.

Fe 14 P1 Football League vs Bantry Blues Weds May 16th

The Fe 14 P1 team entertained Bantry Blues last week. This was a cracking contest with some excellent forward play from both teams. Bantry started the brighter and were soon 2-01 to 0-00 ahead. But Nemo rallied and soon were back on level terms. Indeed they dominated the game to half time and soon had a healthy lead. But Bantry stormed back in the second half and hit Nemo for some great goals and points. Indeed if their shooting had been more accurate Nemo could have been further behind than just a goal as the game reached its conclusion. With Nemo now starring at defeat they rallied one more time and in a great flowing move scored an excellent goal to tie the teams. They had one more chance to win the game but Bantry snuffed out the attack and the ref blew the final whistle. The final score was 5-08 apiece. Well done to both teams for a brilliant game of attacking football.

Fe 14 C3 Football League vs Carrigaline Thurs May 17th

The Fe 14 C3 team travelled to Carrigaline last week to continue their league campaign. This was a free flowing and free scoring game. Played in an excellent spirit by two very committed teams. Forwards were on top and it was hard to keep up with the scoring. In the end the Nemo boys prevailed on a score line of 8-06 to 6-10. Well done to all involved for the high level of entertainment produced on the night.

Fe 18 Non Exam League vs Carrigaline Fri May 18th 

The Fe 18 non exam team travelled to Carrigaline last Friday night for their second league game. They started slowly and indeed Carrigaline could have been out of sight at half time but for some great goals from the Nemo forwards and some excellent saves by the Nemo custodian Luke Towler. At half time the score read 4-06 to 4-00 for the home team. It got worse for Nemo after the break and soon they were 4-13 to 4-01 behind. It didn’t look possible that they could get back into the game but incredibly they did. They produced some brilliant attacking football to actually go into the lead as the game headed for its final minutes. This included an excellent goal from Brian Joyce who was excellent on the night in leading the line for Nemo. The score was 7-07 to 4-14 with Nemo ahead! But deservedly the Carrigaline boys managed to work their way up the field and scored two lovely points to salvage a draw. In truth it was the least their efforts deserved, Final score was 7-07 to 4-16. A game that had everything. Well done to the boys from both teams.

Fe 10 Football League vs Ballincollig Sat May 19th

The Fe 10 boys travelled to Ballincollig for a football game last Saturday. Nemo had 19 participants so enough for two teams. Both games were competitive and in the end it was decided that it was honours even. Good football from both sets of players with their skill levels showing improvement with every outing.

Fe 11 Hurling League vs Clonakilty Sat May 19th

The Fe 11 boys entertained Clonakilty last Saturday in the hurling league. Two teams were formed and both Nemo Dubh and Nemo Glas were very competitive. The teams were evenly matched with never more than a puck of a ball between them. In the end the Clon boys narrowly won both games. But the Nemo mentors were delighted with the performance and skill level of their charges.

The Fe 12 hurlers entertained Fermoy last Monday night in a league game. In testing conditions the boys played very well. Fermoy were excellent and had some very accomplished hurlers on their team.

But the Nemo boys never gave up during the game and showed a lot of skill and determination. Well done to both teams for their efforts on the night.
