South u12B Football Final Replay:
Clerihan met Kilsheelan in the along awaited replay of the u12 South Football championship Final. After a cracker of a game in Clogheen when the sides could not be separated after extra time, expectations were high that there would be a similar game this time out. However the day belonged to the Kilsheelan lads who finished the game stronger and ran out four point winners. All credit to the Clerihan lads who matched their opponents throughout the game. Well done to Clerihan and thanks for entertaining those who followed them with a great brand of football. Well done and thanks to all connected to the team.

Clerihan under 12 girls played Clonmel Commercials last Thursday evening in a home game which saw Commercials give a spirited performance in the first half and were two points up at the half time whistle. But the second half was a different ball game altogether and after scoring an opening goal, Commercials were to see their lead drift away from them when Clerihan upped their game with a fantastic performance in midfield from Kate Corcoran and Emma Hennessy and full backs Lisa Walsh, Mia Cooney, and Fiona McGrath who were impenetrable and a super performance from Orla O’Donnell in goal. Centre backs Catriona Rice scored one goal and two points and gave an outstanding performance, Mairead Browne and Romy McCarthy were superb - Hannah Phelan scored one goal, Chloe Lawerence, Chelsea O’Mahony, Ashling Morrissey, Ashling Gillman and Danielle Foley and super subs Kayleigh Flannery who scored two points and Caoimhe Mulcahy scored a goal and Megan O’Donnell. Clerihan put in an outstanding effort to come back in the second half to win the game and well done to the Commercials girls for an excellent game. Well done to Edmund and John who prepared the girls for the game.
