We wish O’Murchus well in the next round against Castlelyons. Well done to the Nemo boys for never giving up.

But they got in for a 2nd goal and they tacked on a few points to leave the score at 2-08 to 0-06 at the short whistle.

Fe 14 B1 Hurling Championship Final vs St Colmans Sat Aug 18th

The Fe 14 hurlers qualified for the East B1 championship final after Mayfield could not field in the semi-final. The Nemo boys took full advantage of this opportunity. Their opponents were St Colman’s and the game was played in Ballincollig. Nemo started slowly and St Colman’s registered the first two points. But gradually Nemo got into the game. Ross Corkery thundered into the game at midfield and his solo runs caused the opposition all sorts of problems. Add to that the hard work of wing backs Billy O’Neill and Fiachra Twohig and the tide turned for Nemo. At half time they were 3-06 to 0-04 ahead. The second half was a stop start affair which didn’t really suit either side. St Colman’s tried very hard to get into the game but a fourth goal from Nemo mid-way through the second half meant they needed goals to get back into the game. But the Nemo defence was resolute throughout and denied the opposition any clear cut goal chances. In the end a great win for the Nemo boys on a score line of 4-08 to 0-08. A rare hurling underage achievement for the club but richly deserved by this group of Nemo players. They now go on to represent the club on the county stage with a semi-final against Kanturk in September.

Fe 13 P1 Football League vs Glenville Mon Aug 20th

There was nothing between the teams at half time. The second half continued in the same fashion as the first with no quarter given by either side. In the end the difference was the Nemo team’s ability to score goals. And this told in the end as they ran out two point winners on a score line of 4-10 to 2-14. Well done to both sides for the high quality football that was on display.

Fe 16 P1 Football Championship QF vs Glanmire Mon Aug 20th

The Fe 16 footballers played the championship quarter final last Monday against Glanmire in Ballincollig. The boys started slowly and were soon 3 points behind. But a goal settled them and they started to play some good football. They were soon ahead by two points. But inexplicably they failed to score for the next 15 mins. They missed several easy chances where points were on offer but they opted to go for goals instead. Glanmire were much more proficient in front of goal and soon they lead by 7 points 1-09 to 1-02. Nemo managed to claw back 3 points before half time to leave them trailing by 4 at the break. The second half was very disappointing for Nemo as their forwards were held scoreless for the first 20 minutes. This was in part due to excellent defending by Glanmire but also down to some poor decision making by Nemo. With 10 minutes to go Glanmire were safe. The Nemo boys kept plugging away and got the last few scores but in the end Glanmire were comfortable and worthy winners on a score line of 3-13 to 1-07. We wish them well in the semi-final. For Nemo the league remains and the team will now concentrate on their remaining games.

Laochra on the other hand were a little unlucky in front of goal. They were not helped by resolute defence by the Nemo girls. In the end Nemo prevailed on a score line of 3-03 to 0-055.

The Fe 13 boys entertained Fermoy last week in the football league. They started brightly and with the elements looked to be playing well.
