posted 27 Apr 2013, 01:08 by Unknown user
Our U14s travelled to Tubberclair last Thursday evening and came away with a one point win (1-07 to 2-03) in a low scoring game that saw both defences dominant. 

With a number of players unavailable due to injury the team showed numerous positional changes from earlier games and because of this it took them a while to settle against a Tubberclair team that always relish taking on Garrycastle.The half time score was level 1-04 to 2-01 despite Garrycastle playing with a strong wind. 

They knew they were going have to dig deep in the 2nd half and did just that with some excellent defending and counter attacking play. This was a great team result but Dara Mulvihill,Joe Carmody,Brian Ruane,Jason Nugent,Robert
Kelly and Eoin Mulvihill deserve special mention for outstanding 2nd half displays in particular. 

The winning point was kicked by Eoin Mulvihill following a brilliant counter attacking move into the wind.The win which was their fourth from four games played in the league confirms they will be competing in the U14 Division one championship during the summer.
