Last Thursday evening Cashel played Thurles in their final group game in one of the best games seen in Leahy Park for a long time. The first half displayed by the home team of blocking, hooking and scoring was a delight to watch. Cashel led at half time on a scoreline of 2-5 to 2-2.
In the second half Cashel played into a very strong wind. Their defence held out against a very determined Thurles forward line and broke up the field and scored 1-1 without reply. With five minutes to go in the game Cashel scored a goal leaving the final score 4-6 to 2-2. Well done to all the panel who will now contest a County Final.
Scorers: Orla O’Dwyer 1-3, Caoimhe Perdue: 0-3 (Frees), Kate Murphy 1-0, Clodagh Devitt 1-0, Ciara Fogarty 1-0
