Gaa Notes

Clerihan under 8’s are going from strength to strength after their fantastic performance on Saturday morning last where they challenged Fethard in a football and hurling match, the boys are putting in a great effort and all the hard work and training is beginning to show so keep up the great work boys and dont forget to practice daily, football blitz coming up on saturday.
Our under 12 boys hurling team are through to the south final , the game will be played in Clogheen on the 16th September and all our club members should make an effort to attend the game if possible as all the support would be greatly appreciated.

Our ladies were in action over the weekend when our under 12 squad took on Slievenamon in a home game ,Clerihan were the under dogs in this game and went out determined to prove otherwise , playing into the wind in the first half was to their advantage  but with five wides they began to drift behind with Slievenamon not missing any opportunity to snatch a score,
Clerihan drifted 2 points to 4 at the half time whistle and the wind advantage was given to their opponents for the second half, the girls fought tirelessly to keep the ball in their own half scoring 2 points and  hitting the crossbar twice but Slievenamon had snatched 2 goals and began to slip away, a goal from Cleriahn put them back in the game with Slievenamon  to clinch a late goal to finish 3-4 to 1-4 , well done to all the girls from  both clubs for the big effort they put in , scorers were Amy Higgins 1-2, Hollie Corcoran 0-1 and Catriona Rice 0-1.
