This week has been a little bit quieter than last, with fewer games but no less successful than the pervious week..
U 14 Girls
A Very a damp and wet Caherlag, Glanmire U14 team produced a wonderful display of football when defeating their neighbours Erins Own on Monday night.
Both teams struggled early on with the soft pitch and Glanmire’s lead was 3 points after 15 minutes.
From there on though, we took control of the game and some excellent scores put us into a comfortable position at half time. The 2nd half mirrored the first with Glanmire getting some early scores right from the throw in. We continued to play great football up to the final whistle in what was a difficult night for both teams.
Special mention to the substitutes who all came on and made an impact, also to Erins Own who never gave up and only for Caragh Byrne making some fine saves in goal towards the end of the match, the scoreline would have been closer.
Our junior team starting there week with a trip to Glantane to take on Kilshannig in the 13 a side , we opened up a 4 point lead early on but the North Cork side came back strongly and led by 9 points early in the second half, Glanmire character was put to the test and within 20 minutes turned around the 9 point deficit to emerge 2 point winners, well done to Kayla O Connor who was instrumental in the fightback. We then faced Dromtariffe on Sunday in Glanmire and after playing against a gale force breeze we were 5 points up at half time and ran out winners by a considerable margin.
Our senior side met neighbours Rockban on Bank holiday Monday and with a number of players missing , both sides had the bear 15. In a game played in terrible conditions Glanmire won on a scoreline of 5-12 to 1-9, special mention to Ally McCarthy and Shauna Murphy who were excellent throughout.
Well done to the Cork minors on their win over Tipperary last Monday, they now have a Munster final to target in early May.
Games during the week and in to the weekend. In the senior we will face Mourneabbey this weekend and Doheneys next weekend.
A constant flow of Under 12, 14 and 16 games are always underway.
