Knockainey vs Cappamore

1 : 18 – 3 : 11
2018-09-08 / 5 00 PM / Kilteely

Against the strong breeze in the first half Declan Deere opened the scoring for Cappamore with a point followed by another from Tommy O’Donoghue this time from a free. After some fine interplay on the right hand side a high ball was struck in and fielded by Joe Lonergan who finished with a cracking goal on the 14th minute. This left the score at 1-2 to 0-3 in favour of Cappamore. Cappamore were well on top in mid field in the 1st half with Con Berkery distributing accurately. Eamon Sheehan was also in fine form fielding any high ball falling on the half forward line. On the 23rd minute an opportunist goal was taken when Declan Deere pounced on a mistake by the knockainey goalie leaving the score 2-3 to 0-3 in favour of Cappamore. Following the goal Knockainey started to pick off some points with a change in tactics running at the Cappamore defense. Under pressure at this stage some confident interplay between the backs saw them clearing their lines with Jason Fitzgibbon in particular showing great confidence and skill with ball in hand. Tommy Donoghue started to come into the game coming up to half time and soon after splitting the posts with a well taken free he put himself in a good position to receive a pass and take a shot at goal. A fine save however but the ball was never cleared and 30 seconds later on the 29th minute Tommy struck again this time leaving the goalie with no chance hitting the top corner of the net. Score at half time had Cappamore leading 3-4 to 0-7.

The 2nd half saw Knockainey play against the breeze but they managed 3 early points within 3 minutes before Tommy O’Donoghue opened the 2nd half score for Cappamore with 2 frees in a row. Knockainey found a new gear and scored 2 further points and a penalty goal. The score was now 3-7 to 1-12 a complete turnaround from the first half. Late points from the ever present Tommy Donoghue, Dan Shanahan and a well taken point under pressure from David Lonergan were not enough as Knockainey came out winners in the end by the smallest of margins. Cappamore have to pick themselves up for their last game against South Liberties for a must win game which I’ve no doubt they will.

EAST MINOR HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP

Referee : Brian Stapleton
2018-09-04 / 6 30 PM / Pallasgreen

The whole team played as a unit, with great support play, passing and at the same time some superb hooks and blocks. Paddy McMahon scored two great goals in the early stages. Michael Moore had 4 points from play in the first half. The work rate of Eoin McCarthy, Liam O Donnell and Sean Whelan was vital in this great win. Darragh Hanly was superb in midfield and scored 1-2 from play. Shane Kett, Jack Sheehan, Gearoid Mulcahy, Conor Fitzgibbon and Sean Lynch were rock solid in defence all night. Kevin Doyle led the forwards, ably aided by Eoin Smith, Denis O Donoghue and Ciaran Kennedy. Well done to everyone. We are looking forward to the east final against East Gaels next weekend. Thanks to Team Manager Liam O’Mahony for match report.
