CAPPAMORE GAA CLUB NOTES
U14 Camogie County Final
Cappamore 4-5 vs 3-6 Patrickswell
This final lived up to the billing. Having met Patrickswell a few weeks earlier in the championship we knew what to expect. On that occasion we won a hard fought battle by two points. This final proved to be every bit as tough and physical from first whistle to last. Both teams had periods of dominance during the game. The fitness level was impressive as the game was played at a ferocious pace. Scores were hard got throughout. We took the lead and never went behind in the entire game. However there was never much daylight between us and the first half finished level 2-2 apiece.
The second half saw us start a little slower and allowed our opponents to pressure us but our goalie and defense stood firm and we worked our way up the the field getting vital scores and putting us back in the driving seat. Patrickswell stayed competitive thoughout and the pendulum swung from end to end but we continued to keep the scoreboard ticking over. The last five minutes seemed like an eternity but when the whistle finally blew the scenes of joy from players, coaches, parents, grandparents and supporters will live long in the memory of all in attendance. Final score 4-5 to 3-6 for a two point win. It’s impossible to single out players for mention as this was truly a massive team performance from all. Impressive saves, resolute defence, a great midfield battle, excellent forwards and some well worked and well taken scores. The large attendance at the final was impressive and very much appreciated by the team and management

U13 Hurling Championship
Caherline 4-7 vs Cappamore 4-8
We started our U13 championship last Monday night with a 1 point win over Caherline. Both sides traded points early on. Our first goal came after Evan Coleman cut through the center of the defense before batting past the out coming keeper. Caherline replied with a goal of their own before we added 2 more points from frees. Jake Slattery denied Caherline another goal with a fine save and when our defense moved the ball out the field it fell to Alex Heaney on the edge of the square who scored our second goal. Caherline hit back with another goal and a few pointed frees. Evan Coleman scored a goal just before half time to leave Cappamore ahead by 2 points.
Both teams exchanged points at the start of the second half. Tommy Dillon, introduced at half time linked up well with the hardworking Eamonn Ryan. Caherline found the net again and added another point. Evan Coleman replied with a 65. Michael Berkery was dominating the defense clearing ball after ball up to our forwards and it was Dillon again who got past his man to set up Heaney for his second goal. Caherline closed the gap back down to one point and went chasing a goal but couldn’t break down a stubborn defense lead by Berkery. Great performance by all the panel on the night. Well done to both teams on a fine sporting game. Next up for us is a home game with Patrickswell.

Cappamore 0-5 vs 2-12 Crecora
This was the last game of the qualifying rounds and having already qualified earlier in the competition the girls had one eye on next weeks semi final.
Crecora got off to a flying start with a goal very early and we found ourselves struggling for possession and scores. It didn’t get much better in second half and Crecora pulled away for a deserved win.
Looking forward to an improved performance in the semi finals.
U16 Hurling Division 1 Shield Semi Final
Cappamore 0-14 vs 1-16 Newcastlewest

Cappamore 2-07 vs 1-05 South Liberties
Thursday 12 September.
On Thursday last our U12 hurlers had a good win in a tight game against South Liberties.
Two evenly matched teams played out a thoroughly enjoyable game to watch. After what was an even first half both teams were level with Cappamore on 0-04 and South Liberties on 1-01. Jake Slattery providing the scores for Cappamore 2 from play and 2 frees.
It was point for point during the earlier stages in the second half but eventually we began to apply more pressure on the south liberties defense. Our hard work paid off when Cillian O’Dwyer played a good ball forward and Alex Heney pounced on the ball and dispatched it to the net. Soon after that we added a second goal when Tommy Harnett reacted quickest when a Jake Slattery free landed in the square, Tommy pulled first time and sent the ball past the keeper.
Liberties continued to work hard but our defense held firm and we ran out 5 point winners.
Overall a good team performance and we had 5 different players on the scoresheet.
Jake Slattery (0-5) Alex Heney (1-0), Tommy Hartnett (1-0), Shane O’Neill (0-1), Cillian O’Dwyer (0-1)
