Busy Hurling Weekend.

Castlelyons 1-15  Aghada 1-09

Castlelyons played Aghada in a IH league match on Sunday morning last in dry conditions but with a strong wind blowing down the pitch. Castlelyons ,playing against the wind in the first half ,started brightly with S.Moroney getting the first score when he pointed after 5 mins. Aghada with 2 pointed frees briefly held the lead until R Fenton pointed to level the match after 10 mins. Great play at the back resulted in K McGann playing a great ball to R O'Regan who goaled at the second attempt after the Aghada goalkeeper saved his first shot to leave Castlelyons leading by a goal after 20 mins. S Moroney and B Fitzgerald closed out the scoring to leave Castlelyons leading at half time by 1-07 to 0-06. A good performance against the strong wind with the back lines again playing very strongly and setting up good scores for the forwards. Castlelyons dominated play in the second half playing with the aid of the strong wind and R O'Regan got the first 2 points of the half. From here on we lost our way a little with players shooting from all angles and we hit a total of 10 wides in the second half. However we still did enough to win the match on a score line of 1-15 to 1-09. Overall a good performance with good effort from everyone and competition for places hotting up with championship now just 3 weeks away.
