Castlelyons played Watergrasshill in the County PI Hurling semi final
on Friday night last in Pairc Ui Rinn on a perfect evening for
hurling.Watergrasshill had the first attack of the game with their
shot for a goal going just wide. P Mahon had the first point for
Castlelyons after 5 mins after he got a good pass from B Carroll.C
McGann and B Fitzgerald both scored points to leave Castlelyons 1
point ahead after 15 mins.On their next attack the Watergrasshill
forward was fouled and from the resulting penalty S O'Sullivan in the
Castlelyons goal made a great save and clearance. A spillane scored
the next point for Castlelyons and when he was played through with a
great pass from A Fenton he scored  a great goal with a first time
ground shot. T McCarthy with a free in the final minute left
Castlelyons leading at half time on a score of 1-05 to 0-04. The
second half started with Castlelyons realy upping their game with C
Spillane, A Spillane and A O'Sullivan all scoring points in the first
5 mins.C McGann added 2 frees to leave Castlelyons in a commanding
lead and when C Barry scored a great point following good work out of
defence by T Carroll the supporters were starting to believe that we
could reach the final.Watergrasshill scored a late goal but R
Bransfield ,B Fitzgerald and T McCarthy all had points for Castlelyons
to run out winners on a score of 1-19 to 1-10.This was a good solid
