Club Notes September 10th 2012

posted Sep 11, 2012, 3:20 PM by Kevin Brassil
Our Ogra started back with a bang on Saturday, we had over 100 children, which was fantastic but a little unexpected, but we coped, it was a bit manic to begin with as all the new children has to be registered. Many thanks to the parents who helped out with the registration and to the mums who helped chop up all the fruit for the children's snack after their coaching session. We are working in a healthy eating policy and encouraging children and parents to go down the route of snacking on fruit and water after training. This has been met with very positive comments from parents.

Apologies for not including the following in last weeks notes.....  Reality check for U11 hurlers on Saturday last when they suffered their first defeat of the year. They were well beaten by Thomas Davis 3-6 to 1-2.

U15 Raheny 1-10 Fingallians 1-9
Raheny mountain climbers were in action again on Tuesday evening in their mid table clash with Fingallians. Raheny were down 6 points with seven minutes to go and left themselves a huge task to reach the summit. The match began with Raheny having most of the procession but failed to take their scores, Fingallians on the other hand were clinical in their finishing and at the break it was 1-6 to 0-5 for Fingallians. The second half began with Fingallians taking two more scores leaving it 1-8 to 0-5, and for 22 minutes of the second half Raheny failed to score, until James Walsh fielding a superb ball on the Raheny 45 passed to young Glen McNamara a very promising U14 player who took off towards the Fingallians goal, Glen kept a cool head and slotted over a fine point from almost 30 metres with a 6’ 13” Fingallian midfielder bearing down on him. This sparked a Raheny revival, Brian Howard fired a free into the Fingallians square and their keeper was temporarily unsighted the ball was in the net, Raheny were only two points in arrears and piling on the pressure. Brian Howard then struck again with a point. Three minutes to go James Walsh scored a fantastic point after a superb solo run. Raheny were only one point in arrears, Darren Byrne then missed a free from 20 metres out and had the mentors tearing their hair out, on seventy minutes he had the chance to redeem himself and so he did leaving it level. In extra time James O’Kane weaved his magic a popped over a point from 30 metres, Fingallians launched a final attack and some fine disciplined defending by Darren Cooper, Cian Storey and Evan Cumiskey held Fingallians at bay.
The final whistle came much to the relief of the Raheny support.

The 2001 CFF once again fielded 3 teams this weekend. On a sunny Saturday afternoon they came up short in a great football game v Na Fianna. Despite going well behind early on the girls battled away and won the second half. Carla Fitzsimons starred with 3 points from play, Eva Nolan also got on the scoresheet and Grace Cullen and Ciara Storey were also to the fore. On Sunday morning they travelled to Ballyboden for a two team Camogie League match and came away with two victories. Kate McHugh, Jennifer Davis, Orla and Isabella starred for the blue team with Niamh McCormack scoring a great point to finish the game. Sinead Doherty, Beckie and Alex O'Connell starred for the red team while Nicole continued her great form scoring 1-5 in a great performance.

Division 10 North City: Raheny 2-11 v 4-09 Rosmini
This closely fought encounter saw the home side emerge on the wrong side of the result by the narrowest of margins. Despite well taken goals by Richie Judge and Rob O'Neill in the first half and a late, late cracker from Gareth Manley in the second half, Rosmini worked their way through the Raheny defence to chalk up 4gls,and withstand the Raheny final offensive to survive with a 1 pt. victory.

Senior A Camogie had a great win over Naomh Mearnog and lost Na Fianna.
