Cashel Community School book Munster Semi Final Spot

CCS took on North Mon of Cork on Monday last in the Munster 16.5 B ¼ final in a sunny Fermoy. The Cork side were on top early on, and led 1.3 to 0.3 after ten minutes. The Cashel side upped their workrate considerably at this stage, with the defence getting on top of the dangerous Cork attackers, and the forwards began to win more primary possession. This resulted with Cashel hitting some great scores, through top scorer Conor O’ Dwyer and 1.1 from full forward James Murphy. This surge saw Cashel leading 1.8 to 1.4 at half time, despite losing hard working corner forward Micheál O’ Connor to injury.

Cashel continued to work ferociously hard when the second half began, and the Cork side began to lose their discipline, losing two players to red cards in the opening fifteen minutes. CCS remained in control until the finish, helped by the numerical advantage. Substitutes Jack Ryan and Ross Whelan both scored goals after good team moves, while Conor O’ Dwyer continued to score from both frees and play. The final score was CCS 3.19 North Mon 1.10 with the Tipperary side now advancing to the Munster Semi Final. This was a very good team performance from Cashel, with every player playing their part. On the day Ben Loughman and Brian Óg O’Dwyer anchored the defence excellently, along with Callum Lawrence in the second half, and Dion Gleeson throughout. Jamie Duncan and Cathal Quinn got through a power of work midfield. Up front Conor O’ Dwyer was the main man, but got great support from Kevin Cleary, James Murphy and Jaymes O Sullivan
