Castlemartyr GAA Notes 14/ 03/2011

Div 2 Football League

Dungourney 4 -13 Castlemartyr 1- 07

Castlemartyr are still looking for their first points of the season as they lost to neighbours Dungourney under lights in Dungourney last Tue night . Dungourney took control of this game right from the throw in and had 1 -5 on the board before Castlemartyr registered their first score .

A free from Brian Lawton out on the wing deceived the Dungourney goal keeper and the ball ended up in the net for a fortuitous goal . Castlemartyr's only other score in the first half also game from the boot of Brian Lawton .

At the half time whistle , Dungourney were in total control on a score of 2 -9 to 1- 1 . Castlemartyr could only improve in the second half and to their credit they did just that. They scored 5 unanswered points to give the score board a better look with Mark Bowens scoring two from play.

Dungourney took control again however for the last 15 minutes, getting in for another couple of goals . Best for Castlemartyr on the night was Barra O'Tuama was one of our best defenders and also one of our best attackers .
