Fe 16 P1 Football League vs Bishopstown Weds Aug 30th

The Fe 16 boys played near rivals Bishopstown last week in Trabeg in their penultimate league game. The sides were evenly matched and the early exchanges were very close. The sides traded points regularly but a goal from Nemo near the half time break gave them a 4 point advantage at the short whistle. In the second half Nemo took over in midfield with Luke Horgan making some notable marks. With Eoin Nation dominant at center back Nemo began to turn the screw. Some fine points from Scott Philpott started to put daylight between the teams. A goal by Bishopstown midway through the half gave them hope but Nemo finished strongly. Final score was 1-13 to 1-07 for Nemo.

Fe 12 P1 Football League vs Valley Rovers Wed Aug 30th

The Fe 12 boys travelled to Brinny for a league encounter with Valley Rovers last week. The first half looked very promising for Nemo and they led by 2 points at the break. However an unfortunate injury to their goalkeeper swung the game in Valley’s favour. Valley finished the game very strongly to record a comfortable win. Thankfully the Nemo goalie is fine.

Camogie Fe 15 Championship vs Bishopstown Thurs Aug 31st 

Played at home the Nemo Fe 15 camogie team put up a great performance against near neighbors and rivals Bishopstown. They started really well and were soon 1-02 to no score ahead. But Bishopstown got right back into the game when they scored two goals just before half time. In the second half scores were very hard to come by as defenses were on top. But Nemo managed to score two vital goals to give them the edge. They held on in the end for a 3-03 to 3-01 win. It was well deserved and they now have a semifinal to look forward to.

Fe 12 P2 Hurling League vs Kinsale Fri Sep 1st 

The Fe 12 hurlers travelled to Kinsale for a very lively game last week. In truth there was very little between the two sides. They traded scores and there was never more than a few points between them. Unfortunately Nemo conceded a number of soft goals and that swung the game for Kinsale. Final score was 4-04 to 3-02 for the home team. But the Nemo boys hurled well and will learn from the experience.

Girls Fe 12 B Football Championship vs Inch Rovers Fri Sep 1st 

The Fe 12 girls travelled to Killeagh for their championship quarter final last week. This was a great game. Nemo were on top in terms of scoring points but Inch Rovers had the edge in goal scoring. It looked like Nemo were going to lose as Inch held a one point lead heading into the last minute. But a Nemo goal right at the whistle won it for the Nemo girls. Final score was 1-11 to 3-03 for Nemo. Great win and some great football played by the girls. Roll on the semifinal.

The Fe 9 boys played St Nicks last week in Trabeg. Nemo had big numbers and two games were played. St Nicks were very strong in both games and Nemo struggled. In the end the visitors won both games comfortably. It was a good experience for the Nemo boys who I’m sure will learn from the experience.

Fe 18 P1 Football Championship vs Beara Sat Sep 2nd 

The minor footballers started their championship campaign last weekend. They faced Beara in Dunmanway. Unfortunately conditions were terrible with really heavy rain throughout the game. This made for a game where the team that made the least mistakes would prevail. Nemo played well in the first half and led by 1-08 to 0-07 at half time – their goal coming in the 1st minute of the game. But in the second half Beara came right back into it. Where Nemo were wasteful, Beara were much more economical and soon there was just the minimum between the teams. The last 10 minutes was heart stopping stuff as Nemo really had their backs to the wall. Beara threw everything at them in an attempt to draw level. But in the end they ran out of time and Nemo recorded an excellent 2-10 to 0-15 win. Well done to both teams for handling the conditions as well as they did. Next up for Nemo is Eire Og.

Girls Fe 13 Football League SF vs Carrigaline Sat Sep 2nd 

The Fe 13 girls played their summer league semifinal against Carrigaline last Saturday in what can only be described as terrible conditions. Certainly not Summer conditions. Everyone got soaked and ball handling was a nightmare. Nemo were a point up at half time and they took over in the second half. They scored some excellent goals to run out winners 5-05 to 1-07. However it was a game dominated by the weather conditions and it is a credit to both teams that they played so well under the circumstances. Nemo have a league final to look forward to in the coming weeks and we wish them luck. Hopefully better weather too!

Girls Fe 18 Football League vs Naomh Fionnbarra Sat Sep 2nd 

The minor girls entertained Naomh Fionnbarra in the league last week. Nemo played with the wind in the first half and they built up a good 4-05 to 2-03 lead by half time. In the second half Nemo found scores very hard to come by and they really had to dig deep to stay ahead of their rivals. In the end they just about got a deserved win on a final score line of 4-07 to 3-07. This makes two games played, two won for the girls. Hopefully they can keep their good run going now.  

Fe 8 Camogie Blitz @ Sarsfields Sat Sep 2nd 

The Fe 8 camogie players headed to Glanmire last Saturday for a Blitz. They played selections from Brian Dillons and Sarsfields(x2).

Fe 14 P2 Football League vs Sliabh Rua Sun Sep 3rd 

The Fe 14 boys were short a lot of players for their trip to Riverstick last Sunday. But they competed very well nonetheless. The first half was very even and scores were exchanged regularly. The home side led by a few points at the break. In the second half Nemo seemed to tire and Sliabh Rua got on top. They scored some fine goals after good teamwork. Nemo tried very hard but they did miss the regulars who were away. In the end they lost on a score line of 5-14 to 3-07. A good effort by the Nemo boys who we know will have better days to come.

The Fe 16 camogie team played Grenagh away in the championship last Sunday. Nemo were very competitive and played really well in the first half. They were a point ahead at half time. But a burst of scoring by Grenagh just after the break essentially decided the tie. They scored 2-01 without reply to give them a solid platform for victory. They held the lead until the final whistle despite the best efforts of the Nemo girls. Well done to Grenagh. Nemo are not finished yet though as there is a back door to try. Great effort by the Nemo girls who continue to improve with every outing.

In the end though the better hurling skills of the opposition shone through and Nemo lost 5-07 to 2-01. Great effort by the boys who continue to compete very well in the premier 2 level.

Fe 15 C3 Football League vs Douglas Thurs Sep 7th 

The Fe 15 footballers entertained near neighbors Douglas last week. The game was very even early on with the teams trading points on 3 occasions. But the last 15 minutes of the 1st half belonged to Douglas. They scored 1-05 without reply to lead at the break by 1-08 to 0-03. On the resumption Nemo started to get back into the game. However they needed a fortuitous own goal from a high delivery to really get back in contention. Even then it seemed like Douglas had the upper hand as they maintained a 4 point lead. Another high lob into the square went direct to the Douglas net and now Nemo were right back in it. Douglas wiped out that goal with some great points after excellent runs forward by their midfielder Joel – who was excellent throughout. It seemed like the points were heading for Douglas as they led 1-11 to 2-07 with minutes remaining. But Nemo surged forward and were awarded a penalty. Up stepped half forward Roger Timon who calmly stroked the ball home. Nemo now led by 2. Douglas went straight down the field to get a point to leave just the minimum between the sides. But Nemo were not to be denied they finished strongly and added another point to win by 2. Final score was 3-08 to 1-12. Credit to both teams for serving up some great entertainment. The win gives Nemo a fighting chance of reaching the league playoffs. Douglas top the league so who knows – they may meet again.

Fe 16 P1 Football Championship vs Beara Sat Sep 9th 

The Fe 16 boys travelled to Kilmichael last Saturday for their quarter final championship game against divisional side Beara. Nemo started really well and played some great football in the first half. Strong running from forwards Robert Dillon and Robert Geaney O’Brien had Beara in all types of trouble at the back. Add in the accuracy of full forward Scott Philpot and soon Nemo were well ahead. However, despite Nemo’s dominance, Beara kept themselves in the game with two excellent break away goals late in the half. Nemo led by 1-08 to 2-03 at the break. But in truth they should have been further ahead. In the second half Nemo took over at midfield. Luke Horgan and Alan Barry caught some great ball and Beara were in trouble with their kick outs as a result. Soon the scores came for Nemo with a hat trick of goals for lively corner forward Fionn Molloy. At the back Eoin Nation, Mark Hill and Finn Fhlanncadh were rock solid. There was no way back for Beara. Final score was 6-12 to 2-06 for Nemo. They can now look forward to a semifinal against either Ballincollig or Carbery Rangers. Well done to all involved with this excellent Nemo outfit.
