Garrycastle  5-12 Coralstown Kinnegad 0-4

The division 1 team had a comprehensive win over Coralstown Kinnegad by 5-12 to 0-4 on Sunday morning last. From the start Garrycastle  gained the upperhand with early point from Alex Gardiner being followed by a well taken Conor Cosgrave goal. A Michael Monaghan point preceeded a goal from Tom O’Halloran who took on the chance when a point looked the more likely outcome.   Immaculate free taking by Alex Gardiner added three further points and one by James Sheeran brought the halftime score to 2-7 to 0-2.  The black card rule was applied to Neil Rhattigan for a foul just before halftime.  On the resumption Garrycastle  continued their dominance with points from Eoin and Michael Monaghan and Gary McCallon.  A brilliant catch by Conor Cosgrave resulted in a free which he scored himself.  An early ball fed into Alex Gardiner resulted in a one to one situation which resulted in Alex being hand tripped in the penalty area. Conor Cosgrave expertly put away the penalty. A Coralstown Kinnegad player was red carded midway through the half. Late goals by Alex Gardiner and Michael Monaghan and points from the same players completed the scoring.
