Garrycastle 3-6 Moate All-Whites 2-6

This was an excellent opening to 2017 season with both sides starting brightly after the winter hibernation.  Garrycastle took control of this game midway through the first half with a great goal from Diarmuid Murtagh and went into the second half with the lead. Moate pushed very hard in the second half and converted some well taken scores of their own. The Garrycastle defence held firm with Con O'Hara particularly impressive and saw out the win with a goal to spare. This was a valuable exercise for both sides as preparation for the Westmeath U12 league.

Castledaly 2-8 Garrycastle 4-10

The match was relegated to Castledaly's second pitch due to another more senior fixture on the main pitch. The pitch was fairly tight and it took a while for this game to open up. Garrycastle defended very well in the first half and eventually the scores came for them. Sean O'Donoghue taking the couple of chances that came to him which he converted into goals to give Garrycastle the lead at half time.  Castledaly came back strongly in the second half and narrowed the margin to a single point going into the final stages of the game. The game swung in Garrycastle's favour with two late goals from Tom Sheehan to see out the win.
