Junior B Hurling

Cashel KC 0-18 Kickhams 2-06

After a very sluggish start Cashel’s Junior B team ground out a deserved win over Kickams on Sunday morning last. The concession of two early sloppy goals would have knocked the stuffing out of most sides but instead the team knuckled down and dragged themselves right back into the game before halftime to lead 0-11 to 2-3. Playing against a stiff breeze in the second half the team defended defiantly with Sean Kennedy, Paddy Morrissey, Michael K O’Dwyer and TJ Connolly prominent throughout. The forward line worked hard with Robert Anglim who was always a threat and he was aided by Timmy Moloney, Eoin Laffan and William Fitzell. This was a decent start for Cashel but there is room to improve on certain aspects in the training field in the weeks ahead. D Murphy, J O’Dwyer, R Ryan, S Kennedy, P Morrissey, TJ Connolly (0-1), MK O’Dwyer, R White, F Ryan (0-1), W Fitzell (0-2), E Laffan (0-2), G Manton, R Anglim (0-2), T Moloney (0-7), D Slattery (0-1).

Subs used, C Bonnar (0-1), C Ryan, M O’Connor (0-1), J B Ryan, and M Perdue.

Juvenile News

Double Celebrations for Cashel U 12s

It was a day to remember for Cashel King Cormacs last Sunday afternoon in Clonoulty as both Under 12 teams captured outstanding wins in their respective football league finals. It was a fitting tribute to the massive efforts and giant strides the club is making at juvenile level. The A Final in which Cashel faced a strong Arravale side turned out to be a hard fought passionate affair with a comprehensive result. Whilst Cashel came out the better on a scoreline of 2-3 to 0-1, the score says nothing of the intensity in which this game was played. Cashel hunted every ball in packs and were it not for the magnificent goalkeeping of Adam Skeffington who pulled off two super saves before then denying Arravale a penalty with another fine stop, the outcome may have been a lot different. It was a day young Adam will never forget. In saying that Cashel also had outstanding performances all over the field including the subs that entered the caldron at half time. Ross Bonnar belied his stature with a brave and spirited performance and Eoghan Connolly was quite simply brilliant right through both halves. Colin Ryan was rock solid too. The cup was presented to captain Alex Marshall to the rapturous applause of the large Cashel support on the day. Semple Stadium awaits next weekend for further glory.

As the presentation ended Cashels 2nd team were contesting the Shield Final against a more fancied Rockwell Rovers side. This was a game that started poorly for Cashel and they trailed 0-2 to 0-0 after 14 minutes and were never really in the game. An opportunist goal by Dylan Byrnes right before half time gave Cashel a somewhat fortunate lead. In the second half however, the fighting Cashel spirit came to the fore once again and with five minutes to go Cashel were still in front albeit by just two points. Then disaster struck as Rockwell carved their way through for a goal. When it looked like a brave Cashel display was just going to fall short a high ball was sent goalward and the Rockwell keeper fumbled before the ball broke to the outstanding Bolunaife Giwa who tapped into an empty net. Cashel added a late point from Fearghail Donoghue who was magnificent on the day. Another pitch invasion followed as scenes of wild jubilation broke out for the second time within an hour at the Clonoulty venue. This team never gave up and got their just reward. There were fine all-round displays from the whole team and in particular Rodrigo Goncalvas, Luke White and Fearghail Donoghue. This team will now head to Semple stadium as well and we wish both sides the best of luck.

It was great to see one of our esteemed members Mickey Browne in attendance to see his grandson Jack Brown proudly display the winning silverware to him after the match.

The club would like to congratulate all teams and management on a tremendous success. We would like to also thank Kieran Walsh of Coral Dry Cleaners, the sponsor of both teams and also to Mother Hubbards who fed both teams so well after the game. The club is very appreciative of your commitment.

Rosegreen GAA

The club has had a busy few days over the last week. The Junior B football team played Fr. Sheehys in a challenge match on Friday night last. This proved to be a good work out for the team. Fr. Sheehys strengthened their team at half time and ran out winners by a few points. Rosegreen can take a lot of positives from this and will ensure that they are that bit sharper as the West Championship kicks off soon. The Junior B hurling team played Holycross Ballycahill on Saturday evening last. This was the teams first challenge match of the year. Rosegreen ran out eventual winners after a good battle with the Mid outfit. A number of players gave good performances on the night with Sean Cormack and Killian Ryan most notable. All gave a good team performance and hopefully they give a good account of themselves in the upcoming West championship.

The Junior A football team played Fethard on Monday night. This team is provisionally pencilled in to play Sean Treacys on Saturday night next. Please check fixtures in the sports section for time and venue. We would like to see as many supporters as possible come along on the night. Best of luck to all concerned.

The last week has not been a very successful one for the juveniles. All the under 12 teams were beaten in the football leagues meaning no silverware on offer for these bunch of kids. The A team were beaten by a point by Emly in the semi final. This was a game they should have won and will rue the amount of frees given away in the last 5 minutes of the match.

The B team were beaten by a much stronger Cashel side with the outcome very much one sided.

The C team beat Sologhead in the semi final but were beaten by Eire Og in the final, all played on the same night. This team battled really well but were beaten by a better team on the day. The attention now turns to the hurling leagues and hopefully the village will have more success at this code.

The U14 football team played Commercials B team in a challenge on Saturday evening last. They emerged as three point winners after a good ding dong battle. Well done to all concerned. This team will play in a league and championship football final over the next few weeks. Please come along and support the kids.

Members looking for tickets for the Tipp V Cork Munster Championship Game are asked to order tickets from Pat Cummins on 087 2204034 before Friday May 20th.

The club would like to wish the Tipperary Team and Management the very best of luck for the Championship.
