An understrength Garrycastle team travelled to Rochfortbridge on Friday evening last to play the local team in a division 6B match and lost by 8 points. 

Garrycastle scored the first point which was followed by the three points for Rochfortbridge . A goal by Paul O’Donovan after 12 minutes give Garrycastle the lead. Two further Rochfortbridge points were followed by another Paul O'Donovan point which left the sides level after 22 minutes. Late points for the home team give them a 2 point halftime lead on a scoreline of 1-4 to 0-9. 
The first 10 minutes of the second half was where Garrycastle lost this game, conceding 1-7 during that
period. Garycastle had gone out of the game totally at the stage. Injuries to Padraig Cosgrove and Fergal McKiernan restricted their involvement in the game and disrupted the team. However when they had weathered the storm they fought back and battled on to score a further 2-4 to the opposition’s 1-3 with the goals coming from Paul Mulvihill. 

The Rochfortbridge goal came from a late penalty. 

GARRYCASTLE: Shane McEnery, Mark Denby, Alan Hanniffy, Brian Leahy, Ben Kennedy, Gary Mullery, Adam Keena, Conor Duignan, Sean Doak, Fergal McKiernan, Padraig Cosgrove, Bryan McCormack, Eoin Duignan, Paul O’Donovan, Paul Mulvihill. 
Sub: Michael Fagan for Alan Hanniffy (halftime).
