Garrycastle 4-12    Moate All Whites 1-6


The Garrycastle U12s secured a hard earned win over Moate in their opening fixture of the Jim McHugh tournament. Both teams opened strongly and were exchanging scores right from the start. Garrycastle then enjoyed a dominant spell and worked some well taken scores with Conor Sheehan and Diarmaid Murtagh converting excellent points. Jack Allen then scored a great goal after breaking at pace from midfield. This left the score at 1-7 to 1-4 to Garrycastle at the break.

 

The second half opened with both teams exchanging scores with Jack Allen converting another goal. Garrycastle utilised all their substitutes and the fresh legs allowed them to pull away from their visitors as the match closed out. There were some excellent points from Jamie Carroll and Sean O' Donoghue and a great goal from Killian Redmond struck from distance that crept under the bar. It was a great start to the tournament for the team.

 

Garrycastle squad: Jake Hanniffy, Conor McCarthy, Jack Mulvihill, Killian Redmond, Cian McCormack, Brian Mulvihill, Thanh McCay, Jamie Carroll, Diarmaid Murtagh, Oisin Nugent, Jack Allen, David Carter, Matthew Conor, Conor Sheehan, Killian Keegan, Alphie Broderick, Kacey Mulvihill, Charlie O'Brien, Nathan McKeon, Con O'Hara, Sean O' Donoghue, Anthony Mannion

 

 

Rosemount 4-05    Garrycastle 4-11

Round 2 of the Jim McHugh Tournament can only be described as the proverbial game of two halves where Rosemount dominated the first and Garrycastle came back in the second to secure their second win in the tournament. Rosemount playing with the breeze opened strongly and fully capitalised on their chances scoring three goals in quick succession. The Garrycastle defence regrouped and eventually started to get on top with Thanh McCay particularly impressive across the halfback line. This allowed Garrycastle to get some scores with a goal from Jack Allen and points from Sean O'Donoghue and Jamie Carroll to leave the score at 4-3 to 1-4 in favour of Rosemount.

Garrycastle upped their performance significantly in the second half and started to dominate in midfield and the half forwards which allowed the forwards to start getting the scores on the board. There were some excellent passages of play and goals followed with two from Diarmaid Murtagh and another for Killian Keegan. Garrycastle turned to their substitute bench and again the fresh legs made a big contribution to secure the win.
