The Junior B side lined out to Cappawhite on the 16th Aug away to Cappawhite. This was the final leg to be played, and a must win game for the Sars. Sars went into the game knowing that there was a battle ahead against this strong Cappawhite side. The Sars opened the scoring board with a great goal from Lisa Prendergast. It went tit for tat for scores between the two sides, but Sars managed to retained the lead going into the half time break. The second half began on a high note for the Sars, and they began to dominate on the score board with Aoife Hickey and Niamh Mcgrath executing some fine scores both from play and from placed ball. But Cappawhite did not lay down despite the 12 point lead Sars had over them. Cappawhite started to eat away at the lead and picked off some great scores. But the Sars maintained their lead and went on to win the game by 4 points. Fiona McGrath had a great game in goals, and new comer Emma Forrestal was player of the match in her first Junior B championship game. This win ment that Sars would now go into the County Semi and face their local rivals Moyne-Templetuohy.
On Sunday 22nd August, the Sars went up against Moyne-Templetouhy at 12pm at the Garda Pitch in Templemore. This was the County Semi final, and a big occassion for both sides. This was Sars first year in the Junior B grade. With a challenging championship campaign behind them, they had all to play for in this semi final. Sars started strong in the first half, and fought hard against the wind and the hill. There was some great passing play around the centre of the field for Sars and some wonderful scores. Sars went into the dressing room with 1-06 behind them but three points down. With some positive words of encouragement from the management in the dressing room at half time Sars were confident that tey had every chance to win this game. They showed this within the first few minutes of the second half with a long range shot from Aoife Hickey resulting in a goal, which soon followed by a point. This gave Sars the lead and they maintained this for the rest of the game. Though nothing was secure until the final whistle was blown, Sars took no chances and continued to score some wonderful points. Moyne Templetuohy did not lie down and planned their next attack with ten minutes to go. the momentum lay with them, but it was the tightness of the backs and some great defending that kept them getting anywhere near the goals. A suspect Moyne goal which would have reduced the lead to a single point, was well called by the ref and both umpires as a square ball, and Sars got there free out. the final whistle was blown shortly after, and this ment that Sars were now in the County Final and facing Mullinahone.
The County Final is set to be played on Sunday 29th in The Ragg at 12 midday. Thurles Sars Ladies Football is a growing success,even with its short history, so all support on the day would be greatfully appreciated.
