CountyJBF Championship

Castlelyons 1-09  Grange  0-03

Castlelyons played Grange  in the County JB Football Championship in Fermoy on Sunday last where playing conditions were good with a strong wind blowing up the pitch. Playing with the aid of the wind Castlelyons started brightly with A O'Sullivan getting the first score of the match when he pointed after 2 mins. Grange got off the mark when they pointed after 5 mins but Castlelyons pushed on from here with D Sexton ,A O'Sullivan ,A Fenton and R Feeney all scoring points.Castlelyons dominated possession in the first half and limited Grange to 2 points to lead at half time 0-07 to  0-02.Against the wind in the second half scores were harder to come by but with the defense and mid field working very hard enabling A O'Sullivan to get in for a well taken goal.R Feeney and D Sexton  got the last scores for Castlelyons who ran out convincing winners. This was a good performance by Castlelyons in light of the fact they had very little football played but their superior fitness helped, especially in the second half ,when playing against the wind.
