Glenville GAA News

The week saw Glenville Intermediates play their first game since defeating Macroom in the last round of the Championship. Nemo Rangers were visitors to Glenville on Saturday evening last. The Minor prepare for the Premier Minor Football championship with a league game in Fermoy.The U15 footballers also resumed their league programme with a win over Inniscarra thus guaranteeing a semi final spot while at underage level the games keep mounting with plenty action at all levels from U12 to U6.

This was a strange game as we total dominated the first half and lead 0-6 to 0-1 at half time. The Nemo score coming in the last minute of the half. In truth we should have been out of sight as we tallied ten wides and many were well scoreable. Nemo were a changed side in the second half and brought a greater intensity to the game. Glenville as the game went on began to loose shape and Nemo bit by bit picked off the scores to narrow the gap. Without panic they gradually clawed their way closer mainly through pointed frees which we seemed to concede rather easily. Nemo drew level with a minute to go as Glenville forward unit misfired. In the last attack of ther game a very dubious free gave Nemo the easiest of tap over and both league points. A disappointing finish to the game after a great first half. Hopefully the lessons incurred in this game will have a positive effect going forward to the big game next week when Glenville take on championship favourites St Vincents. Good to see the likes of Kevin o Neill, Mike o Donoghue newcomers to Intermediate level making marked contributions.
Glenville 0-6 Nemo 0-7.

Minor Football
After a lengthy break since our last game the Minor team had a difficult outing against Fermoy. Fermoy were well on top in the first half as we were all at sea. The second half was a marked improvement but still lot of work to do before we face another stiff task in Millstreet on Wednesday night in the first round of the championship. Final score Fermoy 2-12 Glenville 0-4

Glenville qualified for the Premier U15 league semi final with this latest win over Inniscarra on Saturday last.

James Gowen introduced as a second half sub on scored 1-1 . Well done all. Final score Glenville 5-9 Inniscarra 2-8.
On Sunday the U16s had a tough game v Courseys in the league and came away with a draw after a tough game . Dilan o Donovan scoring a magnificent point in injury time to draw the match. 3-7 to 2-10 it finished.
