Fe 13 C3 Football League vs Carrigaline Tues July 18th

The Fe 13 boys had an entertaining football league game at home to rivals Carrigaline last week. The first half was nip and tuck and indeed Nemo seemed to be getting on top. They led by a few points at the break. However, Carrigaline got on top in the middle third in the second half and soon the Nemo backs were under pressure. Eventually the scores came for Carrigaline whose forward play was excellent in this period. In the end a deserved win for the visitors on a final score line of 6-12 to 4-07. A good performance by Nemo especially in the first half.

Girls Fe 11 Football League vs St Vals Weds July 19th

Played at home the Fe 11 girls came up against a very strong St Vals outfit in this summer league game. The early exchanges were very even and Nemo got some great scores to stay level with the visitors. But as the second half progressed St Vals got on top and they scored some excellent goals to win the game. Final score was 5-08 to 3-04 for the visitors.

Minor B1 Hurling Championship vs Newcestown Thurs July 20th

The Fe 18 boys travelled to Kilmurry for their championship quarter final tie with Newcestown last week. The first half was a very even affair with the side’s level on a number of occasions. Indeed Nemo could have had a number of goals but for some hesitancy in front of goal. At the other end Newcestown were more efficient and they did raise a green flag just before half time. The score at half time was 1-08 to 0-06 in favor of Newcestown. The second half started brightly for Nemo and they reduced the gap to 4 with a well taken point. As the rain started to come down the conditions made life hard for both teams. The game went a full 10 minutes without a score. During that time Nemo wasted a number of great goal chances. The key score came with about 15 minutes to go. A well worked goal for Newcestown was followed by a quick point for them and in effect it was game over from there to the final whistle. In the end Newcestown had a comfortable and well deserved 3-18 to 0-08 points win. The Nemo boys competed very well for the vast majority of the game and they can be very proud of their efforts. The final score really didn’t do their efforts justice. We wish Newcestown good luck for the rest of the championship.

Fe 16 B2 Hurling League vs Kiltha Og Sat July 22nd

Played in lovely Castlemartyr the Fe 16 boys continued their league campaign last Saturday. The boys never really got going in the first half and they conceded some soft goals. This gave them a mountain to climb in the second half. They played much better in the second half and restricted their opponents to just a few scores. However in the end Kiltha Og were comfortable and deserving winners. Best for Nemo was full back Tom Rea who had a great hour clearing ball after ball.

Minor B1 Hurling League vs Western Gaels Mon July 24th 

The minor hurlers completed their hurling season last Monday. They ended the year on a high note with an excellent performance over Western Gaels. The Nemo boys played some great hurling from start to finish. With full forward Kyle Forde in lethal scoring form they were never in trouble. Kyle scored some excellent goals over the course of the hour. It was great for the boys to end their year on a high. They finished mid table and can be very proud of their efforts this season.

Fe 16 B2 Hurling League vs Grenagh Weds July 26th

The Nemo Fe 16 boys played a cracking game of hurling last week against Grenagh at home in Trabeg. Grenagh started the better and after 10 minutes were 1-05 to 0-01 ahead. The game was stopped for several minutes due to an injury to one of the Grenagh midfielders – not serious thank God. But the break gave Nemo time to regroup. Slowly they started to get into the game with great work from half backs Colin Twohig and Jack Elwood. At half time they had the score down to a manageable two points 1-08 to 1-06 for the visitors. In the second half the tactic was obvious for Nemo – get the ball into the inside forward line as fast as possible. This reaped rewards with some great goals from full forward Patrick Campbell and half forward Luke Horgan. Grenagh kept in touch throughout with some excellent points. But as the game rolled on it was obvious they would need goals to get back into the game. They did score another two goals but they could have had 4 or 5 more but for the excellence of Nemo goalkeeper and man of the match David Cotter. He pulled off some great saves as Grenagh pushed for goals. In the last minute Alan Barry broke forward for Nemo to score the winning goal. Final score was 7-10 to 3-14 for Nemo. Well done to both teams for providing such great entertainment.

Girls Fe 11 Football League vs Eire Og Thurs July 27th

Played away this was a great contest. Both teams played some great football and there was never more than a kick of a ball between the teams. At half time the sides were level and this remained the case until the last 5 minutes. Nemo scored a number of great points in the dying minutes to fashion a great win. Final score was 3-06 to 3-04 for Nemo. Well done to both teams for providing such great entertainment on the night.

Girls Fe 13 Football League vs Carrigaline Fri July 28th

The Fe 13 girls continued their summer league campaign at home to rivals Carrigaline last Friday night. The game was an excellent contest. The difference between the two teams was the Nemo girl’s ability to take their scores on the night. Add in the fact that the Nemo defense was excellent throughout, it would prove to be a good night for Nemo. The girls really got on top in the second half and with well taken goals and points they ran out winners on a score line of 4-10 to 2-05. Well done girls.

Girls Fe 13 Football League vs St Vals Mon July 31st

The Fe 13 girls took on St Vals on Monday night in the summer league. Played at home it was certainly a game of contrasting halves. Nemo totally dominated the first half and were well ahead on the score board after some fine attacking football. The half time score was 4-08 to 2-02. But with the elements with them in the second half St Vals took complete control. The Nemo girls found it very hard to get the ball into their inside forwards as the St Vals middle quartet were excellent. In the end the pressure told on the Nemo backline and they started to leak goals. Nemo did rally to get a great goal of their own but it was too little too late as St Vals ran out winners on score line of 8-04 to 5-10. It was a very entertaining game and both teams deserve great credit for the excellent football played.
