Garrycastle 8-11 The Downs 5-4

Garrycastle U16 team travelled to the Downs on Tuesday evening last to play the Downs. This was a hard fought game played with great scores coming from both sides. Garrycastle opened up with the first score but the Downs replied quickly, this was the way throughout the game. The backs were constantly put under pressure by the quick Downs forwards. Rosin McNamara led in fullback position aided by Shauna Jameson and Amy Mc Govern on the wings keeping the Downs forwards from scoring. Sarah Kelly pulled off a great save from the penalty spot. The work rate of the half backs Emily Ruane, Donna Molloy and Rebecca Norris was superb. The duo at centre field, Tegan Foley and Emer O Neill, were excellent. Our captain Elaine McGovern (0-2) led by example and was instrumental in a lot the scores taken. Shannon Mulvihill was a tower of strength and scored an amazing 5 goals and 8 points of the final tally. Ciara Finn showed great determination and skill making great space for our young forwards Ella Dowling (2-0) and Jasmine Molloy (1-0) to put their names on the score sheet.

Overall well deserved win with great work rate by all fourteen players.

GARRYCASTLE:- Sarah Jane Kelly, Emer O Neill, Ciara Finn, Elaine McGovern, Ella May Dowling, Tegan Foley, Rebecca Norris, Donahay Molloy, Rosin McNamara, Emily Ruane, Shauna Jameson, Shannon Mulvihill, Jasmine Molloy and Amy Mc Govern.
