Garrycastle 5-8 St. Mary's, Rochfortbridge 2-9

 

Garrycastle opened their Westmeath U12 Phase Two, first round league match with an excellent win over St. Mary's, Rochfortbridge.

This match can only be described as the proverbial game of two halves. Rochfortbridge opened the stronger and were getting the scores steadily on the board from the start. Garrycastle were struggling to keep in touch and trailed on a scoreline of 1-3 to 2-7 at halftime.

Garrycastle came out a team transformed in the second half. Every facet of their game upped a notch, tighter marking and tackling in defence, quicker movement and accuracy of possession into attack. The scores started to come at a rapid pace in the final quarter. Killian Keegan converted everything that came his way with a personal tally of 3-3. It was a 15 point turn around in the second half with Garrycastle closing out the match with eight points to spare. It was a real spirited performance in the second half from the team to keep their 100% home record intact for 2017.

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