Castlelyons Lose Out in East Cork Final

East Cork JB Football Final

Castlelyons  0-09  Bride Rovers  1-07

Castlelyons and Bride Rovers played out an exciting East Cork Football Final on an excellent pitch in Ballynoe on Saturday afternoon last. Castlelyons having led for most of the match just got piped at the finish of what was a fine game played out in a good spirit. We played with the breeze in the first half and dominated possession but Bride Rovers had the first score when they got in behind our defense for a goal that was to prove the most important score of the match. A Spillane and R Bransfield were unerring from frees and we leveled the match after 15 mins at 0-04 to 1-01. T McCarthy scored a lovely point from the left wing to give us the lead and 2 more points from A Spillane and R Bransfield gave us a 3 point lead at half time  0-07 to 1-01.

Bride Rovers with the aid of the breeze in the second half scored the first 3 points to level the match after 10 mins and from here on every ball was contested manfully. S O Sullivan and R Bransfield restored our lead but Rovers scored the last 3 points of the match to win at the death by 1 point. A disappointing result for all involved but great effort and commitment was shown by everyone. Our season is not over yet as we still have to play the Munster JB Football Championship with the quarter final due to be  played on Sunday next in Knockaderry Co.Limerick.
