Cahir into South A football final

The semi-final of the south A minor football game between Cahir and Moyle Rovers took place last Tuesday evening in a changed venue, Ardfinnan, as you could imagine a very hot and sticky evening, Rovers were first on the score sheet with a couple of quick points, then on three minutes a free for Cahir was quickly and cleverly taken by Stephen Grogan to find captain Sean Murphy who obliged by putting the ball in the back of the net, from then on to the break our opponents seem to be on top and at the fourteen minute stage had five points on the board, our young men were finding the going tough and some wasted ball and indecision would prove costly for the lads.

On twenty three minutes a great save from Killian Halpin kept Cahir in the game and at half time the board read 1-02 to 0-08 in favour of Rovers, the second half started with Rovers getting the first two points which would be their last of the half, the Cahir lads must have said to each other enough of this and started to play with purpose and power taking on their men and running directly at them and it started to pay off, the scoring started and finished with points from Jake Fitzgerald (pictured below), and in the middle points from Stephen Grogan, David Clifford and Tommy McDonagh saw Cahir take control of a well fought game, with our players putting their bodies on the line in hot conditions to see out the win in some style.

Well done to Davy McEniry (manager) and all his mentors, for getting the lads back on track to get to a South final, at the end this bunch of great young men gave their all and we must salute them for that, so well done guys, a South final awaits and good luck to all in that, at the moment the final is fixed for July 22nd 5pm in the Clonmel sports field,( NB as with all fixtures subject to change), full team and scorers: Killian Halpin, Darragh Heffernan, Christopher McDonagh, Eoin Wyse, Francie Delaney, Tommy McDonagh (0-1), Mark Casey, Stephen Grogan (0-4), Dylan Fitzgerald (0-1), Tommy Magner, Jake Fitzgerald (0-2), Nicholas Reidy Jake Kiely, Sean Murphy (1-1), Kevin Grogan.
