Dromtariffe was the venue for the eagerly awaited senior ladies semi-final between St Vals and Rockchapel. Both teams were evenly matched playing good football for periods of the game however it was Val's failure to convert their opportunities into scores that was to be their undoing.

Rockchapel set the pace early with not a minute on the clock full forward Regina Curtain had rattled the back of the Val's net to put the first score on the board giving Rockchapel the perfect start. Good team work by Vals saw a reply in the form of a point minutes later. The next period of play was largely dominated by Vals. Vals had the majority of the possession however failed to convert. In the10th minute Vals saw a great goal opportunity lost. A long ball was sent into the wing forward Sinead Buckley and with just the goalie to beat it looked a certain goal however great play by the Rockchapel goalie who came off her line and some how managed to keep the ball out. Wing forward Jean Lucey was next to put her name on the score board with a point in the 17th minute. Rockchapel ended the half stronger with a point in the closing minutes coming from centre half Deirdre Reilly. The half time score read 1-3 to 2 points.

The second half was frustrating from a Val's point of view when once again they played well however could not produce the scores. Rockchapel on the other hand took their scores well. By the 12th minute Rockchapel had 3 points on the board compared to Vals one. By the 20th minute the game was as good as over as a contest. Regina Curtain got her second goal of the game. The Vals goalie Leona Cotter did superbly to save a rasper of a shot but could do nothing about the rebound. The score now read 2-7 to 3 points to Rockchapel. In the last ten minutes the teams exchanged points and though Vals battled hard till the end the score ended 2-8 to Rockchapel 4 points to Vals. Rockchapel now go on to play Doughamore in the ladies senior county final


Vals U12s took on Valley Rovers in a very exciting game. The two teams had met a week previous and that game ended in a draw. This game was not the same type contest as the week previous as Vals were on form and were on top from start to finish. First half goals from Aoife Plunkett and Ciara meant they had a cushion for the second half and Joanne Downs goal in the second half meant there was no way back for the Valley Rovers side. The game ended on a score line of 3-9 to 1-3 to Vals.


Castletown was the venue for the county u12 semi-final between St.Vals and Rosscarbery. This turned out to be an exciting encounter between two very good teams both playing exceptionally well despite the poor conditions present.

Vals started well and had clocked up a considerable lead by half time. Vals played well however can thank the slippery conditions for the considerable margin at half time. The second half was a completely different affair. Rosscarbery came out with all guns blazing and really put it up to the Vals girls. Three consecutive goals by the Rosscarbery girls really put the pressure on. However the Vals girls showed immense character, they managed to keep their head and luckily for them came away with a two-goal victory. The final score being 5-8 to Vals 3-8 to Rosscarbery. The outcome could have been a lot different if the Rosscarbery girls had played to the same standard as they played in the second half. However the Vals girls never panicked and did play the more consistent football, for this reason they fully deserve to be in this years county u12 final.
