Castlelyons 2-10. EireOg 5-11

On a lovely evening in Mahon Castlelyons played Eire Og in the 2nd
round of the Minor Football Championship.Eire Og got straight into the
game from the throw in and after 10 mins they were leading 2-02 to
0-02.In the remaining 20 mins of the half Castlelyons got their game
going and with goals from Jack Barry and Ronan Bransfield they led at
half time on a score line of 2-09- to 2-03.The second half turned out
very disappointing for Castlelyons as Eire Og dominated play and
scored 3-08 in the second half to run out very convincing winners.The
Castlelyons panel never gave up and even though things were going
against them they competed to the very end.

IH Challenge

Castlelyons  2-12     Charleville  1-13

Castlelyons took on Charleville in Mitchelstown on Sun night last in a
IH Challenge match. On a wet showery night Charleville started very
brightly and dominated possession and scores in the first half leaving
Castlelyons shooting a lot of wides under pressure from a strong
Charleville back line. Charleville went in at half time leading on a
score line of 1-08 to 0-03 having completely dominated the half. The
second half started in a downpour Castlelyons with some positional and
personnel changes competed for every ball and went on to win on a
score line of 2-12 to 1-13.The second half performance is the level
the team must play at and the challenge now is to produce this level
of performance in every match.
