Monaleen 1-13
Venue: Kilmallock

Played in Kilmallock, Cappamore started well with points from Bill Creamer and Adam Coleman but Monaleen responded with 3 points to go a point up. Cappamore levelled with a point from Tommy O’ Donoghue and added another from a free. Monaleen drew level but a long range effort from Pa Doyle, 3 in a row from O’ Donoghue and another from Bill Creamer had Cappamore 5 up approaching half time. Monaleen replied with one but Tommy O’ Donoghue finished with a point to leave Cappamore 0-10 to 0-5 up at half time.
Cappamore started the 2nd half with a Bill Creamer point, he then flicked a high ball to the net to give Cappamore an 8 point lead. From then on Cappamore found the scores hard to come by. Monaleen scored 3 points and then added a goal to reduce the lead to 2 points. Tommy O’ Donoghue increased the lead back to 3 before 2 points from Monaleen narrowed the gap to a point.

Venue: Knocklong
From the start this was a close game point for point until Garryspillane scored a goal. We were down by 2 points at half time but in fairness to the lads they brought it back to level on a few occasions throughout the second half and could have won only for a few unlucky missed chances near the end.

Feile Na Ngeal Iomaint B Final

Sat April 7th in Cappamore
Cappamore V Kilmallock

4-6 to 5-5

What was always going to be a tight and hard fought match lived up to its expectations. Cappamore got off to a fine start with a well taken point from Mike Fitzgibbon. Kilmallock were quick to step things up and we found ourselves trailing by a goal from their ever threatening forward line.

A great puck out by Jamie Fahy found Mikie Fitzgibbon who after a fantastic run finished to the net. The scores were coming quick with Kilmallock scoring a goal and 2 points before halftime. Then the Cappamore full forward line clicked into gear with all 3 scoring before half time Joe smith and Michael Ryan with a goal each and Evan Coleman scoring a fine point. Score at half time Cappamore up 4-02 to 2-02.

Kilmallock got the second half off to a flyer with 2 well taken points and looked to take over, however with Ultan Hogan leading the way Cappamore with points from Donnacha Hogan, Mikie Fitzgibbon and Sean Hayes replied with interest. Unfortunately as we entered the final few minutes we tired and the always dangerous Kilmallock forwards got the important scores. Jamie Fahy in the Cappamore goals pulled off some great saves but the pressure told and Kilmallock ran out winners by 2 points, 5-05 to 4-06.

Team: Jamie Fahy, Sam Scott, Arron Roulston, Tommie Meehan, James Mccarthy, Matthew O’Malley, Seamus Hanley, Ultan Hogan, Captain Sean Hayes, Donnacha Hogan, Mikie Fitzgibbon, Luke Ryan, Michael Ryan, Joe Smith, Evan Coleman.

As you would expect with two traditional hurling clubs involved a great crowd was present to witness a very entertaining match.
