Thursday and Friday promises to be a cauldron of activity in Semple Stadium, as the County final will be held. St. John the Baptist boys will be represented in force. In the Roinn B Cashel vs Tipperary CBS has the makings of a close encounter. In Section B Scoil Eoin Naofa face off against Cashel BNS in what should also be a cracker. Finally the U.11’s after a nail biting victory in Cahir last week will also take part.
Well done to the staff and players on their journey thus far and we wish the teams the very best in their quest for County honours. Exact times of games will be circulated in school during the week.
West U.12 Shield Football Final
Cashel KC 4-7 Arravale Rovers 4-2
In a game packed with entertainment and a high level of commitment and skill it was Cashel who emerged winners after a late period of pressure paid dividends. Cashel trailed by two points at halftime with Arravale Rovers scoring a goal right on halftime.
Words of encouragement and a rallying call from mentors inspired Cashel in the early exchanges of the second half as they took the game to the Tipp town side. Scores were hard to come with Cashel kicking some poor wides. But gradually Cashel’s pressure began to pay off with Jack McGrath scoring a superb goal. But the rovers replied and regained their two-point advantage with a goal of their own. The game was frantic as it entered the final moments. Another Cashel goal with four minutes to play handed the initiative back to Cashel but disaster struck a lone range Arravale effort finding its way to the Cashel net. With time running out Cashel pushed on and peppered the Arravale goal with shots. A goal from Eoghan Connolly and points from Ryan O’Sullivan, Aaron Moloney and Jack Hayes sealed a memorable win for this young group of lads.
The shield was presented to captain Eoghan Connolly who thanked his selectors, teammates and opponents Arravale for a fine, sporting game. Well done to all the players and selectors on this brilliant victory. In community games Cashel KC U.11’s will have played their County final and a report will be in next week paper, a winning one we hope!
West Intermediate Football
Cashel 3-13 Golden 2-12
Cashel’s footballers opened their campaign with a tough game against Golden. A disastrous start saw Cashel trail 1-4 to no score but once the team found their feet they dominated the game thereafter. Cashel’s play improved significantly and they put some lovely scores on the board, with Michael Coleman, Eddie Walsh and Ross Doyle a constant threat. In defence Jonathan Kennedy was solid with Lee Burke and Jonathan Grogan always to the fore. TJ Connolly and Darran O’Day were both central to Cashel’s dominance snuffing out their opponents in the middle of the pitch laying the foundation for a fine win.
The team play Kickams next weekend in round two and it is hoped they can build on this opening round win.
