Garrycastle 4-20,

Killucan 3-04

Garrycastle hosted Killucan in the fifth round of the league and from the throw-in were in determined mode eager to claim victory.

In the first half the home team started positively with Joey Dunne and Senan Kelly on target in the early stages. The team were keen to entertain the spectators and in their new jerseys looked very impressive as they moved the ball quickly, showed great composure in front of the goals and worked hard for each other to get good scoring opportunities.

Killucan showed they were dangerous with their first attack scoring a goal. However, Garrycastle went right down the pitch and replied with a great point from play, the score at half time being 3-09 to 1-03 in favour of the hosts.

In the second half Garrycastle maintained their superiority, Sheriff Bamidele excellent in the forward line showing well and linking with the players around him. Luke Stankard had another great game in defence and worked hard all match, while Tadhg Mulvihill and Cristian Necil linked well in midfield.

Both goalkeepers, James Cahill and Owen Kelly, were excellent, the latter saving a penalty at the end of the match. Overall, this was a great result for a team who continue to improve.
