Tyrrellspass 2-13      Garrycastle 2-6


The Under 14s missed out on a final place when losing to a stronger Tyrrellspass team in Moate’s Hogan Park last Sunday morning. After a tentative opening, the teams were level at 0-2 each when Tyrrellspass got through for a goal. They increased their lead to five points but Garrycastle appeared to get a much-needed boost when a free kick by Ben Kilkenny was fumbled and seemed to cross the line. The umpire raised the green flag but the referee (from some distance away) over-ruled him and waved play on. Trailing by 1-6 to 0-4 at half time, Garrycastle needed to start the second half well but instead, after giving away possession, they were punished by a good goal from Tyrrellspass. Luke Clinton raised Garrycastle hopes when he pounced on a rebound and found the net but the Sky Blues regained control and kicked some very good points. Another well-taken goal by the hard-working Luke Clinton cut the deficit to five points but Tyrrellspass notched two more late points to clinch a deserved victory.


Garrycastle: Eric Rogers, John Dylan O’Shea, Cian Dowling, James Murphy, Nathaniel O’Neill, Diarmuid Carey, Cathal Redmond, Tommy Stephens, Daniel McManus (0-2), Nathan Breslin, Ben Kilkenny (0-2, frees), Ryan Cornally, Shane Coffey, Charlie O’Connor (0-1, free), Luke Clinton (2-1).

Subs: Corey Nugent, Adam Mulvihill and Stephen Gaffey.
