Castlemartyr GAA Notes 25th March 2012
JFL Div 2: Sun 25, Mar 12:

Carrigtwohill 1-09 Castlemartyr 1-14

Our Junior footballers gathered 2 vital league points after a tough encounter in Carrigtwohill on Sunday last. We made life difficult for ourselves in the opening exchanges and got caught on the overlap on a number of occasions. Jamie Stack was assured from placed balls and settled the team with our first two scores, meaning that we were level on the scoreboard after the first quarter. A quick fire goal and a point put the opposition 4 points in front, but we knuckled down and further points from Jamie (3) and Adrian brought us level again at the break.

The second half saw a much better performance with the tempo being increased significantly by our lads. We picked off some nice scores from the boots of Jamie, Alan Collins, and Jimmy Smiddy. Carrigtwohill were always in touch, however, until young Liam Martin pounced to rifle the ball into the top corner. This led to a comfortable last 5 minutes and we eventually ran out winners on a 1-14 to 1-9 scoreline.
