West U.16 A Hurling Final
What a weekend it was of Gaelic Games for the Cashel King Cormacs GAA club. First into action our U.16’s and what’s a performance from the boys in rain sodden Kilcommon Saturday. The lads entered this West U.16 A Hurling Final game as under dogs as our opponents Cappa Gaels were raging hot favourites to add another West title to their haul of an U.12 A and U.14 A hurling championships already won this year. But it was obvious from as early as Cashels prematch warm up and again In the dressing before the clash, that something special was about to happen for this group of young Cashel men. From the moment the impressive Eoghan Connolly landed the opening point from a free, Cashel were Never at any point headed during the following odd 55 minutes. The opening 15 minutes was all about Cashel. A game plan was evident and the boys implemented it. The first of two opening half goals were taken brilliantly, Jack McGrath crashing a shot to the net while Tommy Fitzgerald displayed neat football skills tapping the ball over the line to get Cashel off to a rousing start.
Cappa did have their threat however and soon goaled to keep themselves in the hunt. But some brilliant point taking, two from Jamie O Keeffe, two Jack McGrath frees and two more long range frees from Eoghan Connolly handed Cashel a decent cushion. Cappa Gaels chipped away however and added 5 points of their own while Michael O Meara had to be alert in goal displaying composure under some high dropping balls. Further points from open play from Ryan O Sullivan, Jack McGrath and one from near the touchline from Fearghail O Donoghue brought the half to an end with Cashel leading 2-10 to 1-6 and things looking good. It was inevitable however that Cappa would have their purple patch and ask real questions of Cashel and this they did. The opening 10 minutes was All Cappa. Four unanswered points reduced the arrears to three. A Jack McGrath free settled his team as they fought with every ounce of energy to keep the opposition at bay. Further Cappa points ensured this was going to the wire. But Ryan O Sullivan pounced for his teams 3rd goal which was a crucial score during a vital period of the game. With ten minutes to play and with Cashel leading by 5 after points from Eoghan Connolly and a brilliant solo effort from Dean Harding, Cappa Gaels goaled from a 25 metre free. The game was now on a knife edge. Jack Mcgrath once again showed coolness landing a free but Cappa replied adding another point. But that something ‘special’ rippled all through the Cashel team. The backs threw themselves into every tackle. Our midfielders now found themselves all over the pitch while our forwards gave the Cappa backs a torrid time in the dying moments hounding, harassing for every ball. The boys from Cappawhite and Solohead threw everything at Cashel but time and time again the red and green jersey stood resolute and displayed a ‘sheer will’ not to lose. Eoghan Connolly opened the scoring in this West Final and he capped a ‘virtouso’ performance by slotting over the final point in a pulsating West Final and send Cashel to a fantastic and superb victory, Cashel KC 3-15 Cappawhite Gaels 2-15. A huge Cashel crowd swarmed onto Sean Treacys now beaten up pitch to applaud a massive performance from the boys. This was a day that will live long In the memory and in doing so provides a foundation for a bright future. These lads have shown what can be achieved with dedication, commitment and a never say die attitude. Well done to each and every one of the Cashel players.
