Intermediates in second position in League
After the drawn game on Monday evening the Castlelyons Intermediate team are in second place in the Division 2 league table.  They have eleven points and are on equal points with Meelin.  They are playing Meelin on next Monday night under lights at Mallow.
A win here would secure a place in the final against Ballyhea.  This makes this a very important game for the club.  It is to be hoped that a good crowd of supporters will make it to Mallow on Monday night for the throw in at 8pm.  So do come along for what we cam expect to be an excellent game of hurling.

Intermediate Hurling League, Div 2.
Castlelyons 2-19 v Aghada 4-13
  The intermediate team went to Aghada on Monday 27th August to play the third last game of the League.  After dominating the first half the Castlelyons team found themselves up against a resurgent Aghada side in the second half and just managed to come away with a draw.
The first two scores came for Castlelyons when Ronan Fenton and put over a point from play and Colm Spillane pointed the first free of the game.  Aghada responded with a point from a long distance free and followed with a goal in the eighth minute.
Anthony Spillane’s point in the thirteenth minute made the sides leel at 0-5 to Castlelyons and 1-2 to Aghada.  From here on Castlelyons were in control of the game.  In the twenty fourth minute good combined pley on the part of Darragh Lawlor, Ronan Fenton and Anthony Spillane ended with Anthony putting the ball into the net fot Castlelyons’ first goal.  The second goal came as result of a pass from robert Feeney to Colm Spillane and he scored it.
For the last thirteen minutes of play of the first half Aghada were held scoreless and a margin of thirteen points was built up.
On the resumption of play the Aghada side showed that they were not about to give up.  Within two they had put the ball into the net.  By the end of the third quarter they had reduced the margin to four points.  During the last ten minutes Castlelyons failed to score, but they could still have held out as the margin was still four points.   In the twenty seventh minute a point to Aghada reduced the difference to one goal.  A minute later Aghada won a free in their half.  They won possession of the dropping ball and a goal resulted. The sides were now level.

The U21 hurling team played Erin’s Own in the semi final of the Championship against Erin’s Own on Wednesday 22nd August at Lisgoold and lost by two goals.
Neither side got the upper hand in the early stages of the game.  It took ten minutes for the first score to come and this was  a goal to Erin’s Own and they followed with a point a minute later.  Ronan Bransfield was the first to score for Castlelyons, when he put a point over in the twelfth minute.
Going into the last five minutes of play for the first half Erin’s Own led by a goal and they added a two more points before the whistle went.  The score at half time was 0-3 to 1-5 in favour of Erin’s Own.
Castlelyons played much better in the second half.  After an initial point to Erin’s Own in the first minute, they put over three unanswered points to bring the difference down to two points.
Two goals in the fifth and ninth minutes gave Erin’s own a nine point lead, and this was still the difference between the teams going into the last ten minutes of the game.  In the twentieth minute Alan Fenton won a ball which he laid it off to Anthony Spillane and he found the net for Castlelyons’ only goal of the game.
For the nest ten minutes Castlelyons were on top and scored four unanswered points to bring them within two points of Erin’s Own.  The last five minutes of play then went Erin’s Own way and four points gave them a lead of two goals at the end of the game.
Well done to the team for going to the semi final of the A grade competition.  Well done also to the mentors, Mick Spillane, Dave Hoare, Maurice Carroll and Dave Hegarty.  Overall it was a worth while experience for this group of young talented players.
