Winning start for PIH team

Castlelyons  4-16   Kilbrittan  1-10

Castlelyons PIH team got their league campaign off to a winning start when they defeated Kilbrittan in Castlelyons on Sunday last. Conditions were cold and dry with a strong wind blowing up the pitch.Castlelyons had the first score of the match when Rob Feeney scored a free after 5 mins. Kilbrittan replied with 2 frees to lead by 1 point after 10 mins. K McGann and R Feeney added more points to again level the game and from here on Castlelyons began to take control of the match with the full back line of B Carroll, B O'Connell and S Kenny playing extremely well. B Fitzgerald won a great ball at center forward and his shot for a point came back off the upright to Alan Fenton who finished to the net for a well taken goal. This left Castlelyons leading by 2 points at half time after playing against a strong wind. Castlelyons started the second half in determined mood and scored 4 unanswered pts in the first 5 mins. Kilbrittan got their first score of the second half after 10 min but by this time A O'Regan,R Bransfield, and R Fenton  had all scored for Castlelyons to leave the score 1-12 to 0-7. A side line ball from R Bransfield went all the way to the net for Castlelyons second goal and when A Fenton set up R Feeney with a great pass for the 3rd goal Castlelyons were in control of the match. Kilbrittan scored 1-02 in the last 10 mins and Castlelyons had points from D Lawlor and B Fitzgerald to close out the match. This was a good performance for the first league match of the season with the back lines playing very strong and supporting one another very well. Centre field and forwards combined well for some excellent scores and if we can continue to improve the future for this team looks good.
