J H L Sec 1 Castlemartyr 0-14 Bride Rovers 2-6

We had our first league game of the new year on Sunday away to Bride Rovers in Rathcormac. The conditions were atrocious and both teams deserve great credit for putting in a very honest effort. We led at half time 0.08 / 0.04 after playing against the wind, Barry Lawton and Brian O Tuama leading the charge with some great scores. The rovers scored a goal from a 60 meter free and shortly added another goal, but we rallied and held on for the win, best on the day Barry Lawton, Liam Martin ,Brian and Donnacha O Tuama.
