THE DOWNS 3-08, GARRYCASTLE 1-14 
 
Our Division 1 Side got their first points on the board from this years league campaign when playing out an exciting draw under lights in the Downs last Friday night. Having got off to the worst possible start, conceding a goal in the first few minutes, the lads recovered and put in a solid first half performance after that to go into the break leading 1-09 to 2-03. The goal coming from the penalty spot from Alex Gardiner after Conor Cosgrove was fouled. The Downs second goal also coming from a penalty spot after a goalmouth scramble. 

The second half was equally as entertaining for the crowd as the first with all the Garrycastle players putting in an excellent shift of good defensive and attacking play. Garrycastle looked to just about have done enough to get the win when leading by a point in injury time. However The Downs kicked a 45 metre free with the last kick of the game to take a share of the spoils. The management will be happy with the performance and workrate shown by all and will hope to bring the same into our next game vs Kinnegad.
