Intermediate Championship ResultsCorofin 3-04 v 3-06 KilkishenWhitegate
2-02 v 5-08 BodykeOgonnelloe 1-09 v 0-08 St. Joseph’sThis has the
intermediate Championship looking very interesting going into the final
weekend of games. Bodyke look certain to top the group and are secured of
a semi-final spot. Kilkishen and Truagh are both level on points in second
and third place, while ogonnelloe’s win at the weekend has jumped them
into fourth. Results now in the last week will really be needed to settle
the top four. While Bodyke look assured a spot wins for both Kilkishen and
Truagh over Whitegate and Ogonnelloe will be important to secure a
semi-final spot, both can upset the next three places with wins. Corofin
and St. Joseph’s will also clash next weekend and a win for either team
here can push the for a spot. The group is still very close and some
exciting games are in store next weekend. The challange for championship
semi-finals is full on. Those who do not make the championship semi-finals
though will still have shield semi-finals to play as the Intermediate
clubs had voted last year to try a year without the league comptition and
try this group as a championship as it would give more teams more games
and help them to keep things moving in the clubs and it certinly seems to
be providing quality as they gap between most clubs is certainly

PK Coaches Senior Semi-finalKilmaley v Wolfe Tones, Saturday @
Ballyline 4pm

Kilmaley will be looking to make it to their third Senior
final in a row, while for the Shannon outfit this is an attempt to break
back into the foothold of the stronger teams for the last number of years.
While Kilmaley will be firm favourites going into this tie they will need
to heed the challange of Wolfe Tones. The Tones have put in a lot more
work in the past year than in recent years and with Cathy Halley, Aine Nic
Cormaick, Elaine Gallery and Marion Costelloe giving strength and
experience they are boosted by the return to form of goal scorer from the
game against Broadford of Stephanie Regan and they have the youth of
Catherine Danagher and Rachel O’Brien to push them along.Kilmaley’s Denise
Lynch dominated the game for the first half from center back and this
threat will have to be cut out by the Shannon side. The McMahon sister of
Claire and Helen will also take watching as will Sh¾nagh Enright, Eimear
Considine. Orla Keane, Sinead O’Halloran, Ailish Considine and team
captain Emma O’Driscoll will also be a handful. Kilmaley will know that
they were lucky to escape with a win from the last group game against
Clooney and will certainly not want to let this slip as they bid to get
back to the final stage to try and gain what has eluded them in recent

Under 18 Championships

The U18 A and B Championships are due to start next weekend. Some clubs have voiced their
dissatisfaction at having to play u18 while the Senior and Intermediate

Auburn Lodge Hotel.The First rounds are as follows, with first named team

Clare Champion U16 FinalsU16 B @ RoslevanInagh 2-08 v 1-02 KilkishenThis
was a tight game with the winners only finally putting space between
themselves and Kilkishen in the final eight minutes. This after many
failed attempts in attack for Kilkishen. There was just three points
between the sides at the break with Inagh to the fore in this. Kilkishen
had gotten the dream start when Elaine Hannon delivered a long range ball
and Deirdre Minogue was on hand to slot the breaking ball to the net, this
after just 3 minutes gave the Kilkishen side the boost that they would
need. Patricia O’Loughlin and Helen Hehir were battling out at mid-field
with Marie Collins and Elaine Hannon both sides were very strong in this
department and it was the extra strength that Inagh had in attack that saw
them over come the east Clare side. Patricia O’Loughlin was clinical from
frees and as the sides were level in the closing stages of the first half
inagh were pressing hard for the advantage. The Kilkishen full back line
was under enormous pressure and Eaodain O’Brien was called on to save as
Alannah Considine swept up inside. They could not hold out though and
Aisling McInerney of Inagh was in for the goal which put Inagh ahed before
the break and this they would not let slip.Kilkishen had many attacks
early in the first half but were unable to get past the Inagh rear guard.
Aisling Rynne was operating in the forwards and had score that broke the
Kilkishen hearts with 10 minutes remaining as she capatilised on the hard
work of Christina Glynn in the middle of the field and cut in on goal with
a well taken finish. Inagh also had a point from Helen Hehir and two
Patricia O’Loughlin frees and one from play put the game well past
Kilkishen. Inagh were very strong and well deserved the win they were ore
ballanced and the ability to take the scoring chances when presented was a
major difference between the teams. For the winners Linda Hehir, Patricia
O’Loughlin, Helen Hehir, Christina Glynn. Orla Greene and Frances Coote
did well. For Kilkishen Marie Collins, Elaine Hannon, Orla Mororney,
Alannah Considine, Amy Heffernan and Sorcha Loughnane did best.Inagh:

0-02 Newmarket-on-FergusSixmilebridge clearly justified their favourites
tag in this 16A final. They were stronger than their Newmarket opposition
throughout the field. As Sixmilebridge put in a clinical performance they
led at the break 1-08 to 0-01 and never let up on this determined
performance as they added their second 16A title in as many years. The
‘Bridge side were very strong down the center with Sinead Hyland, Daneya
Shannahan, Niamh Corry, Chloe Morey, Sinead Costelloe and Mairead Hyland
leading from the front. Newmarket were unable to deal with the strength
and experience of this ‘Bridge side despite the best efforts of Laura
McMahon, Joanne Hartigan, Niki Kaiser and Clodagh Lawlor. Sixmielbridge:

BallyeaOver the last number of years these two sides have served up a
number of great encounters the result has always been close with both
sides fighting it out to te very end and again this was the story when the
sides met on Saturday in the U16 C final. Ballyea had had the upperhand
over the Feakle side in the last number of encounters and with only points
separating them on any occasion a good contest was in store. Both sides
were evenly matched throughout the game with score for score being
matched. Indeed both sides were level at the break at 1-02 a piece with
Sile McGuinness getting Feakle/Bodyke’s first half goal and Suzy O’Shea
getting the like score for Ballyea. The second half was every bit as close
and exciting with Ballyea getting the first scores of the half. Feakle had
just leveled matters and gone a point in front when Ballyea struck for
their second goal with Emma Carey the provider this time. Just as it
looked as if Feakle heads were beginning to drop and that they would come
to the same fate as recent years they dug deep and found the will to keep
going. They found it hard to get past the Ballyea rearguard though and it
was through hard work that Denise Walsh goaled to bring them back in front
by the minimum. The game ebbed and flowed from here and both sides worked
very hard to try and get over the finish line. There was great displays
from both sides with all working very hard. For Feakle/Bodyke Clodagh
McDonnell and Clodagh Gray worked very well at mid-field while Vera
Loughnane and Sile McGuinness were very dangerous when on the ball, with
Laura Nelson, Sarah Nelson and Muirne Donnellan working hard to shore up
the defense. For Ballyea Sharon Coffey, Deirdre Waters, Rebecca Culligan,
Jane Flanagan and Emma Carey worked hard.Feakle/Bodyke: Lauren Guilfoyle,
