In the Castledaly tournament final on Sunday week last the under 10s defeated Maryland Tang by 15 scores to 5. In a tight first half the Garrycastle  boys were able to maintain a three point lead  and led by 7 points to 4 at halftime. In the second half Garrycastle  broke down the opposition and found scores easier to come by. They gradually increased their lead and in the end ran out easy winners. This was a hard fought game and the greater skill of the Garrycastle  boys won out on the day.  It was an excellent all round performance by Garrycastle  in which every player played his part. As well as well taken scores there was good build up play and also good defence including many excellent blocks. Most of all there was a will to win which was very impressive. Overall it was an impressive display by the Garrycastle  boys. In addition James McHugh was awarded the player of the tournament title.  

On the previous day the under 9s and 10s had won the Clann na Gael tournament. There will be more detailed reports on both matches next week.
