West U.21 “A” Semi Final Football Cashel 1-12 Golden 0-15 - The small attendance in Bansha on Saturday certainly got value for money as both Cashel and golden must do it all again after eighty minutes of compelling football failed to separate the sides.
Both teams will be happy to get another go after missing some guilt edged opportunities to win the game. The tackles were fierce and every ball was contested for with determination. Cashel came flying from the traps and exerted all the early pressure the pick of which an outstanding point from wing back James Cummins, Cummins was to retire early after sustaining a shoulder knock soon after. Cashel in fact went from strength and held a nice four-point lead with fifteen minutes played. Golden soon found their feet however and trailed by three at halftime 0-6 to 0-3 with Cashel on top. The second half had a mixture of everything, missed penalties, uprights and posts coming to both sides rescue as chances went a begging. Late in the game a 50metre free from Gearoid Slattery rescued Cashel to force extra time. The following twenty minutes was up and down when Cashel looked likely to win, then Golden took over again but when Brian Quinlan blasted in a Cashel goal with five to play the tide had swung in Cashels favour. But Golden rallied and two late points earned a draw and both sides must meet again next Saturday in New Inn @4pm. The effort from the lads was outstanding with Dylan Fitzells fielding of the highball and overall plays a standout of Cashels performance. Paddy Morrissey, Brian Quinlan, Shane Murphy and Gearoid Slattery particularly when moved outfield caught the eye.

County Senior Hurling League Cashel KC 1-08 Holycross 2-15 - Our Seniors Hurlers took on Holycross on Sunday morning last in the game of the new County Premier Hurling League. After a decent enough opening half display and with just three points the difference in favour of Holycross, the second half saw Cashel fall off the pace and eventually Holycross finished stronger to record a victory 2-15 to 1-08. While its always easy to be critical, for a first outing in 2013 and a first visit back to Leahy park for some of the players the opening half certainly offered some encouragement. The thing now is for all players to respond positively and attend training, taking part or not and to start building a squad that want s to progress things and become a force in the West Championship. For Cashel Owen Quirke had a decent debut in goal, while Brian Minogue, Ross Doyle, Adrian Cummins and Michael Coleman showed up well for the most part.
Peil Na N-og Round 2 - Cashel KC 3-09 Galtee Rovers 1-08 - Cashel U.14’s kept their winning streak in tact with a hard fought victory over a strong Galtee Rovers side. The lads had to pull out all the stops and some positional changes at halftime had the desired affect with Ciaran Quinn and Luke Quinlan in particular rising to the challenge. With the game evenly poised at the interval on a score line of Cashel KC 2-4 to 1-02 the team came out in the second half and put in a fantastic display. This win now means Cashel can top the group if they manage to defeat a strong Arravale rovers side next Saturday and on the evidence of this victory the team hold every chance of doing so. There were many standout displays but Ryan O’Sullivan, Scott Scanlon, Colin Ryan, Ciaran Quinn and Eoghan Connolly are worthy of mention. Well done to all the players for their commitment at training in recent weeks it has been fantastic so far.
Team: Adam Skeffington, Sean Ryan, Ciaran Quinn, Jamie O’Keeffe, Michael Morrissey, Colin Ryan, Luke Quinlan, Murragh McDermott, Eoghan Connolly (0-1), Rodrigo Goncalvas (0-2), Ryan O’Sullivan (1-04), Ross Bonnar (0-1), Brian Morrissey (0-1), Alex Marshall, Scott Scanlon (2-0). Subs used Jack Hayes and Bolunaife Giwa.
