IH League

Castlelyons  0-10  Inniscarra  0-09

Castlelyons played Inniscarra away in a hurling league match on Sunday morning last. Pitch conditions were poor on a dry bright morning.Inniscarra had the first score of the match after 5 mins before A O'Sullivan replied with a point for Castlelyons. C Barry gave Castlelyons the lead when he pointed after 10 mins and we held this lead until half time when we led by  0-06 to 0-02.This was a tough battle in the first half with every player from no 15 back defending strongly. Inniscarra upped their scoring rate in the second half and pulled level with 5 mins to go.The last minutes of the match were frantic with both sides missing chances to take the lead before A Spillane scored the winning point in the dying moments to win the match  0-10 to 0-09.This was a good test of the team with every player on the field putting in a great effort and working very hard.

JBF League

Castlelyons 3-14  Dungourney 3-12

Castlelyons played Dungourney in a JB Football match in Castlelyons on Fri night last under lights. Playing conditions for the match were excellent on a cold dry night.Dungourney started very brightly and clearly had a lot of football training done with the way they kicked some great points and their off the ball running to set up 3 goals in the first half was impressive.Castlelyons scored some good points of their own but were behind at half time 3-06 to 0-07.Positional and personnel changes were made at half time which resulted in a more determined team effort and after 20 mins of the second half the teams were level.Both teams exchanged points with Castlelyons running out winners at the end by 2 points.This was a great fightback and a good runout before the football Championship on Sun 28th against Grange.
