Junior A Hurling Championship
St James' 2-15 St Colum's 0-15

St James' have advanced to the semi-finals of the Junior A Hurling Championship after dispatching St Colum's in Sunday's quarter final.

St James' got off to a good start, going three points up within three minutes, but St Colum's were able to keep pace with St James' through a succession of frees. The first half ended level, at 10 points each. Tellingly, St Colum's had scored only two points from play, a credit to the St James' defence.

Halfway into the second half, with St Colum's having gone three points ahead, St James' lost Kevin O'Brien, who was sent off for a second yellow card. St Colum's quickly squandered their advantage by pulling Kieran O'Donovan to the ground in the penalty area, and James O'Driscoll dispatched the penalty with precision, levelling the game. St James' seemed to sense that the game was now theirs for the taking, and confirmation came with another goal within two minutes, when Kieran O'Donovan snatched a free from the air, turned and fired into the net. St James' three-point lead was stretched to four by another well-placed free by James O'Driscoll (who scored 1-7 in all). St Colum's replied with a converted free (their tenth place-ball score of the game), but Aaron Hayes quickly cancelled it out with a well-taken point. With time marching on, St Colum's went in search of a goal, but were denied by good defending and a couple of Diarmuid O'Donovan saves. Two more converted frees by James O'Driscoll sealed the six-point win for St James', who will meet Kilbree in the semi-final.

Team: Diarmuid O'Donovan, Rob Hegarty, Micheál McCarthy (D), Eoin Deasy, Mark Evans, Ian Evans, James O'Sullivan, Micheál McCarthy (B), Kevin O'Leary, James O'Driscoll (1-7), Paul O'Sullivan (0-1), Aaron Hayes (0-1), Kevin O'Brien (0-2), Michael Santry (0-1), Kieran O'Donovan (1-3).

Junior A Football Championship
St James’ 2-10 O’Donovan Rossa 1-13


With time fast running out in Sunday’s football-championship game with O’Donovan Rossa, St James’ found themselves in need of a goal and a point, then scored exactly that to level the game and earn a replay. St James’ had gone in at half-time four points up, having pointed six times and scored a vital goal. That said, O’Donovan Rossa had themselves come close to scoring goals on a few occasions in that first half. Early in the second half St James added another three points to their tally, but these were cancelled out by an O’Donovan Rossa goal. O’Donovan Rossa then showed what they were really capable of, scoring eight points without reply. They might also have scored another goal during that scoring spree, but were denied by good goalkeeping. Then, with the scoreboard showing O’Donovan Rossa on 1-13 and St James’ on 1-9 and only minutes remaining, Frank Hayes pointed from a free and then finished off a great passing move with the goal that levelled the game. Time was up and a replay the outcome.

Team: Diarmuid O’Donovan, Thomas Nyhan,  Micheál McCarthy (D), Eoin Deasy, Damien Bennett (0-1(F)), David Hayes, Kevin O’Leary, Kieran O’Donovan, Paul O’Sullivan (0-1), Micheál McCarthy (B) (0-1), Aaron Hayes (0-2), Kevin O’Brien (1-0), Frank Hayes (1-1), Ian Evans (0-1), James O’Sullivan (0-3). Subs used: Eoin Feen, Joseph O’Sullivan, Finbarr McCarthy, Mark Evans

Junior A Hurling League
St James’ 0-23 Kilbree 0-17
St James’ took both league points in last Sunday’s Junior A Hurling League game against Kilbree in St James’ Park. St James’ went on an early scoring spree and led 0-17 to 0-7 at the break. Kilbree staged a good recovery in the second half, reducing the margin to three points with ten minutes left. However, St James’ survived the pressure, and five late points from Paul O’Sullivan settled the outcome.

Team: Diarmuid O’Donovan, Seamus McCarthy, Micheál McCarthy (D), Eoin Deasy, Mark Evans, James O’Driscoll (0-3), James O’Sullivan (0-1), Ian Evans (0-1), Micheál McCarthy (B), Kevin O’Leary, Paul O’Sullivan (0-9), Aaron Hayes (0-3), Conor Hayes, Michael Santry (0-1), Kieran O’Donovan (0-4).

County Junior A Hurling League
Blarney 0-17 St James’ 0-14

St James’ travelled to Blarney last weekend to play the opening round of the County Junior A Hurling League. It was a close game from start to finish, with Blarney leading by two points at the break, 0-8 to 0-6.  St James’ had the better of much of the second half, and were unlucky on a number of occasions as the ball was cleared off the line when it looked like it may well cross it.

St James’ 0-12 Clann na nGael 0-6.
St James’ continued their junior-A football league campaign with a hard-earned victory over Clann na nGael in Ardfield last Sunday.

The visitors played their best football in the third quarter and were within two points with ten minutes remaining.

St James’ opened their junior-A hurling-league campaign with a hard-earned victory over St Mary’s in Enniskeane last Sunday. On a very heavy sod and with a strong wind, it was not pretty and every score was hard fought for. In the first half, St James’ – against the wind – were always in touch, and a goal on the stroke of half-time by Kieran O’Donovan ensured they ended the half within two points of St Mary’s (0-9 to 1-4). The second half was a tight affair and scores were tied with ten minutes remaining. However, St James’ put in a strong finish to win the game 1-13 to 0-11. Next weekend is football league versus Clann na nGael in Ardfield. Team: Diarmuid O’Donovan, Eoin Deasy, Finbarr McCarthy, Donnacha McCarthy, Seamus McCarthy, Micheál McCarthy, David Hayes, Paul O’Sullivan (0-1), Ian Evans, Kevin O’Brien (0-1), Kevin O’Leary, Kieran O’Donovan (1-3), Mark Evans 0-2, Brian O’Donovan, James O’Driscoll (0-6).

St James’ 2-6 Kilmeen 0-5
On a day where only the brave ventured out, with gale-force winds and driving rain, St James’ junior footballers faced up to Kilmeen at St James’ park for round three of the junior A league. It was not a day for fancy football – rather, a game where pride in the parish and club was the driving force. Scores were hard to come by, and at the break Kilmeen led 0-3 to 0-2. A well-taken goal by St James’ Mark Evans set the tone for the second half. A superb point from Damien Bennett extended the lead, followed by a James O’Sullivan goal. St James’, having accumulated six league points from the opening three games, head the league table. Next up is the opening game of the hurling league, against St Mary’s in Ballineen this Sunday at 12pm.

Junior Football
In Leap against Kilmacabea last Sunday, St James’ junior A footballers emerged victors, but only after a tough encounter. Played on a very heavy surface, there was no room for fancy football and any mistake was punished. For most of the game it was score for score, but it was St James’ who shaded it at the break (0-6 to 0-5). In the second half St James’ opened up a four-point lead, only for Kilmacabea to score a goal with only ten minutes remaining. However, a converted penalty by Mark Evans restored the four-point lead (bringing Evans’s tally for the day to 1-7). Kilmacabea kept up the pressure and reduced the difference to two points, and came close to a last-minute goal, only to be kept out by St James’ goalkeeper Diarmuid O’Donovan. Final score: St James’ 1-14 Kilmacabea 1-12

Team: Diarmuid O’Donovan, David Hayes 0-1, Seamus McCarthy, Eoin Feen, Micheal McCarthy (D) 0-1, Donnacha McCarthy, Aaron Hayes 0-1, Kevin O’Leary, Paul O’Sullivan 0-1, Kevin O’Brien, Mark Evans 1-7, James O’Sullivan, Kieran O’Donovan 0-2, Micheal McCarthy (B), Frank Hayes.

St James’ 4-11 Barryroe 0-5

A good workmanlike performance last weekend saw St James’ take both league points on offer in the opening game of the Junior A football league. Barryroe looked the sharper early on, kicking two frees with the aid of a very strong wind, before Frank Hayes netted his first of three goals. At the break it stood 1-2 to 0-3. Upon resumption, St James’ upped the tempo, and ran out easy winners. This Sunday it’s an away game against Kilmacabea in Leap at 12pm, and no doubt a much tougher test.
