Garrycastle collected two more league points from this trip to Tyrrellspass last Monday. Both sides were short some regulars but the teams served up an entertaining game with the issue in doubt to the end. The first half saw both teams pick off some good points, with both Garrycastle midfielders David O’Shaughnessy and Aidan Browne on the mark early on. Further points from Conor Cosgrove (3), Paddy Mulvihill and Paul Dillon helped Garrycastle to lead by 0-7 to 0-6 at the break.

The third quarter saw Garrycastle extend their lead to three points, with Paddy Mulvihill showing great form in attack. The home side then scored a goal to level the game and when they took the lead soon after they seemed to have the momentum to push on for victory. A long-range free from Paddy Mulvihill then came back off the post and Gary Dolan crashed the rebound to the net. Garrycastle then went three points clear again but a second Tyrrellspass goal levelled the scores. Good work by Paddy Mulvihill set up Gary Dolan for his second goal which proved decisive, and a late Tyrrellspass point came too late to affect the outcome.

This was a decent performance from a much-changed Garrycastle team and the two points gives them an outside chance of winning the league title. The remaining championship games against Killucan and Bunbrosna will be the priority, however, as they try to book a place in the knock-out stages once again.

GARRYCASTLE: Sean Brennan, Mark McCallon, John Gaffey, Gary McCallon, Justin Barrett, Enda Mulvihill, Alan Fox, David O’Shaughnessy (0-1), Aidan Browne (0-1), Ciaran O’Neill, Doran Harte, Paddy Mulvihill (0-5), Conor Cosgrove (0-4), Paul Dillon (0-1), Johnny McGuire.

SUBS: James Dolan (for O’Neill), Gary Dolan (2-1) (for McGuire), John O’Shaughnessy (for E. Mulvihill), Robbie Shine (for J. Dolan) and Peadar Mulvihill (for Browne).
