GARRYCASTLE 1-07, THE DOWNS 3-08 
 
Our U12s made the long journey to the Downs last Wednesday evening to take on the home side in a Division 1 league tie. On a difficult evening for football because of a swirling wind the lads gave an excellent account of themselves against a physically stronger and taller Downs side! The game was only decided in the final 10 minutes by the concession of two late Downs goals against the run of play. 

In what was a fine team effort from the boys despite still being short a few lads due to holidays they went toe to toe with a Downs team that were certainly aided by some very dubious home town refereeing decisions all through. The boys played some great football from start to finish and unfortunately some unforced handling errors cost them in the end. This was a very pleasing performance from the mentors perspective and we hope to continue this form into our next game away to St Lomans.
