Garrycastle 2-17, Caulry 2-04 
 
The Under-12 squad got phase-2 of this years under-12 league off to a great start with a win against Caulry on Wednesday evening. Despite a number of players being missing due to summer holidays and injuries, we still had 17 players available to tog off on the night. 

For the majority of the players this was their second match in two days, but this did not stop them from putting in a  100% effort from start to finish. Garrycastle started the game the brighter, running at Caulry and scored the opening few scores. As the game progressed, Caulry gradually got into their stride, but even though they made some fine attacks, the Garrycastle defense held firm, and gave up no scores. The Garrycastle backs never seem pressurised when the opposition attacked, and when possession was won back in the full back line, the ball was quickly up the field through the hands to score some great points. 

The work rate from the middle third of the field was great to see when we were attacking, but as the game progressed, Garrycastle were a bit slow getting back and Caulry took full advantage of this and punished us with a few scores. 

Not to be outdone, our forwards were on fire tonight and every ball that was worked in was rewarded with a score. The effort from all of  the players was very impressive on the evening. 

Thanks to Caulry for a very fair and competitive game. Final score Garrycastle 2-17, Caulry 2-04.
