Castlemartyr GAA Notes

27 April, 2015

Castlemartyr 1-07 Glenbower Rovers 1-08

Castlemartyr met Glenbower Rovers for the second time in this years championship and again just came up short, this time exiting the championship. In a low scoring game, Castlemartyr will be disgusted to loose, having had plenty of possession in the second half but failing to take their scoring chances.

Glenbower Rovers led by 4 points at half on a score of 1-06 to 0-05, their goal on 17 minutes after working an overlap which gave Conor Whyte in goals no chance from close range.

In a low scoring second half, Glenbower Rovers kept their noses in front and with time almost up Castlemartyr found themselves 4 points down but there was still time for some drama. Substitute Colin Bowens blasted a great goal chance wide from close range. Then Liam Martin made a great run up the field before working the ball to Jamie Stack who finished to the net to leave just a point between the sides as we entered injury time. From the kick out, Castlemartyr won possession and an Eddie Clifford effort for a point caused confusion between match officials before it was eventually waved wide. The final whistle was blown up on the kick out and unfortunately it is Glenbower Rovers who move on to meet Dungourney in the next round.

Team: C Whyte; E Ronayne, R O’Donovan, B Smiddy; L Martin, B O’Tuama, C Martin; A Bowens, J Lawton(0-01 f); B O’Tuama, J Stack (1-04, 0-04f), C Haines; E Cashman, C Beausang, E Clifford(0-02). Subs: C Bowens for C Beausang (35) C Lynch for C Haines (45)
