The U17 side had an excellent 5-10 to 1-7 win over Macroom in the Rebel Óg West Division 1 semi-final at Moneyvollahane last Wednesday. Macroom controlled the first 10mins but Castlehaven defended excellently to keep them out. The Haven hit a purple patch midway through the first half, scoring three goals to lead by 3-2 to 0-3 at half-time. Castlehaven continued to play excellent attacking football in the second half.

While Randals started well, Castlehaven improved to lead by 0-8 to 0-5 at half-time. The team continued to impress in the second half and won by 1-16 to 1-10. Congratulations to the team and management on getting out of the group. The Castlehaven senior ladies made the long journey to play Mourneabbey in the championship last Sunday morning. Castlehaven competed well but they were defeated by an excellent home side, 2-14 to 0-2 the final score. Castlehaven and Clonakilty played out a cracking game in the U13A West Cork final in Drimoleague on Thursday. Castlehaven had a slender lead at half time but two Clonakilty goals in the second half were key as they won by 2-6 to 1-4. The girls should be very proud of their efforts all year.

The U8 boys played in a Rebel Óg blitz in Skibbereen last Saturday against Kilmeen, Clonakilty and Castlehaven. The U11 boys played Caheragh last Monday night in Church Cross and showed great teamwork and superb football. The Ilen Rovers/Gabriel Rangers U17 team bowed out of the championship after a 7-9 to 4-13 defeat to a very strong Sam Maguires. They only went down after putting up a huge battle and playing some great football. Stephen Hurley (two), Eoin O’Brien and Seán Connolly had first-half goals as the team played some of its best football all year to lead by 4-7 to 3-5 at half-time. While Sam Maguires had a goal early in the second half, Ilen/Gabriels continued to hold the lead until Sams got two more goals late on. Down six points in the closing stages, Ilen/Gabriels fought back well but couldn’t find a leveller and now enter the shield competition. While there will be disappointment that the team fell short of semi-final qualification, they can look back and see some significant progress that was made with a new group of players and some great performances in some very good games of football. Best of luck to the U14 girls, who face St Val’s on Sunday in Kilmurry, in their county semi-final. Ilen will host the Denis Crowley Invitational U15 football tournament this week. Thanks to everyone who supported the ladies’ football flag day in town last Friday.
