Cappawhite and Aherlow played out this County B final in Lattin on a sunny Sunday afternoon last. Cappawhite had met Aherlow earlier in the competition and were narrowly defeated. It was a brilliant first half display from the Cappa ladies where they trailed by a single point 1-1 to 0-3. The Cappawhite ladies were to succumb to a fitter Aherlow outfit in the second half where they pulled away despite an early second half goal from the Cappawhite.

However they got to grips with the game after the interval and clocked up 2-02 to Lattin’s 1-01 but unfortunately it was not enough. It was a great second half performance from the Cappawhite team.

SEMI-FINAL - Cappawhite 9 scores Rockwell 5 scores
Cappawhite lined out against Rockwell Rovers in the first of the semi finals while Golden played Seán Treacys in the other. Cappawhite were up 5 scores to 2 at the break but had to soak up a lot of pressure in the second half before getting to grips with the game. The backs defended well and the forwards tagged on another 4 scores to put the game out of reach of Rockwell who showed great spirit.
FINAL - Cappawhite 8 scores Golden 2 scores
Cappawhite met up with Golden who beat Treacy’s in the other semi final. Interestingly Cappawhite had played Golden away in the competition last week and lost out narrowly by one score. Cappa led at the break 5 scores to 1 on the back of a great team display but knew that Golden wouldn’t give up without a battle. They managed to keep them at bay and converted another 3 scores in the second half. The Plate was presented afterwards to a ecstatic Cappawhite team and supporters.

However this was truly a game of two halves and the visitors rose to the challenge in the second half and put in a great display.
