Re­suLts Round- uP: Mean­while on Sun­day, Laochra Óg U15 Camo­gie team played Rock­ban in the semi-fi­nal of the Muskerry Camo­gie league.

It was a bril­liant game from start to fin­ish with noth­ing be­tween the sides for most of the game. Lochra Óg started off brightly go­ing a goal and a point up. The goal was sheer class from Emma Coombs smash­ing a ball on the ground into the back of the net from out­side the 13.

The game re­mained tight with Rock­ban scor­ing two late goals be­fore half-time. Down a goal in the sec­ond-half, Laochra Óg lev­elled and went a point up from a free from Ava O’Con­nell in the early ex­changes.

The match was end to end with both sides com­ing close. Donna McCarthy com­ing on at the start of the sec­ond half got a su­perb goal of sim­i­lar fash­ion to Emma’s pulling on a ground ball putting us a goal up with around 10 min­utes to go.

Rock­ban got two more goals and a point in full-time to go four points up be­fore an­other goal in in­jury-time to make the fi­nal score. Rock­ban 5-04 to Laochra Óg 3-03.

A seven points win for Rock­ban and a mighty ef­fort from the Laochra Óg girls who play­ing a team a grade above them in other age com­pe­ti­tions.

Also on Sun­day in the U16 county league semi-fi­nal, goals made all the dif­fer­ence as the score­line fin­ished St Marks 5-13 Laochra Óg 1-13.

The U16s played a very en­ter­tain­ing game in Bal­lyvour­ney and it’s fair to say the fi­nal score didn’t do Laochra Óg jus­tice.

With only two points sep­a­rat­ing the teams at half-time it was all to play for in the sec­ond pe­riod but Laochra Óg con­ceded goals, while a few missed op­por­tu­ni­ties at the other end were the de­cid­ing fac­tor.

From Laochra Óg’s per­spec­tive it was an en­cour­ag­ing dis­play as they gear for the higher grades next sea­son.

Well done to St Marks and best of luck in the fi­nal.

On Satur­day the Laochra Óg U9 boys had a hurling blitz in St Fin­barrs GAA in Togher.

They had two five-a-side teams who played three games each. They played two Midel­ton teams and a St Fin­barr’s team and won all their games well and worked hard with great pass­ing and team­work.

On Mon­day the lat­est Club De­vel­op­ment Draw took place in The Pub, Car­ri­g­an­imma. Matt drew the win­ning ticket for Mary Frances Cree­don, Kil­na­mar­tyra who won €362 and the sell­ers prize of €25 goes to Dromey’s Cen­tra, Bal­ly­ma­keera. The next draw takes place on Novem­ber 19.

Note for the Di­ary: Laochra Óg ta­ble quiz will take place at J.C. Mur­phy’s, Mac­room on Fri­day De­cem­ber 14, at 8pm. A ta­ble of three is €10 per per­son. 50/50 The Club De­vel­op­ment Draw will also take place on the night and great prizes are to be won.
