Juniors Win 7 Goal Thriller

Our Junior Hurlers got their maiden victory of the league campaign last Monday 18th April in Lisgoold versus the home team. A late start due to a tardy referee didn’t slow down the action as Castlelyons started well and played impressively with Darragh Spillane and James Kearney scoring well worked goals. Colm McCarthy did well on frees while Conor McCarthy and Stephen Casey bolstered the defence. A couple of defensive errors kept Lisgoold in the game with 2 goals of their own and Castlelyons were happy to go in at half time 2-8 to 2-9 in front. Lisgoold started the 2nd half strongly and scored a goal of their own that sent them into the ascendency. 10 minutes of sustained pressure was thrown at the Castlelyons defence, but our lads held firm. Castlelyons began to turn the tide again and finished strongly. Substitutes Peter Roche and Shane Cotter making a difference in attack. A late goal by James Kearney sealed a late comeback for Castlelyons as we held on to the victory on a score line of 4-14 to 3-16.
