 Minor matches 9th November vs Clann Gaels and Sunday 11th November vs Tyrrellspass

Our minor girls, sponsored by Athlone Town Centre, had mixed fortune at the weekend suffering a defeat to Clan Gaels on Friday despite a spirited performance and a strong finish, final score 4-11 to 2-09. Sunday we travelled to Tyrrellspass for the last of the round games and this proved to be a very close encounter with it all square at half time 3-4 to 2-7. Playing into the wind in the second half, Garrycastle piled on the pressure and two early goals set the trend for the remainder of the game and secured a win on a final score of 3-8 to 4-14. Overall this was a great performance with every player working hard all through from Emma Hynes in goals, with the defence standing firm and making great clearances. Midfield worked tirelessly and the forwards won great ball and made great use taking their scores. Next up is a place in the semi-final to be played next weekend.
