Garrycastle 2-12 Mullingar Shamrocks 0-12

Our seniors came out on top of the league game played in Garrycastle on Friday evening last. This was a lively game played in a competitive spirit and at the end of the day the goals were the difference between the sides. Both came in the first half, one from Alex Gardiner at the end of a good move and the other by Conor Cosgrove who punched to the net after a speculative shot by Adam Kennedy fell short. Wind assisted Shamrocks kept in touch by adding points but Garrycastle had the upper hand at halftime leading by 2-6 to 0- 9.

In the second half Garrycastle quickly increased the lead to 6 points which they held on to til the end. It was a workman like win by the Castle with some good moves but with aspects of play that management will need to work on.

Garrycastle: Sean Brennan, Mathew Guiheen, Jack Donohoe, Gary McCallon, Bill Kelly, John Gaffey, Mark McCallon, Eoin Monaghan, James Sheeran (0-1), Conor Cosgrove (1-3), Tom O'Halloran (0-2) , Michael Monaghan (0-1), Cathal Mannion (0-1), Adam Kennedy, Alex Gardiner (1-4).

Subs Doran Harte for Cathal Mannion; Jason Nugent for Conor Cosgrove; Kenny Dolan for Adam Kennedy; Brian Ruane for Michael Monaghan.
