Garrycastle Earn Bragging Rights

Wednesday 13th July 2011. Westmeath Junior Championship.
Athlone 0-05 … 1-09 Garrycastle. Pairc Ciarain.

A first half goal from Padraig Cosgrove gave Garrycastle a good foundation for a 7 point victory over close neighbours Athlone in Pairc Ciarain. Garrycastle can be thankful for a strong save from Stephen McGuire to parry a goal bound shot over the bar towards the end of the half to keep the home score down to just 3 points.

Athlone started the second half with a burst of energy and were rewarded with 2 points in quick succession from Ray Connellon. But Garrycastle rose to the challenge and the introduction of Eoin Monaghan gave them a boost and caused Athlone problems with every attack.

Par for the course with South Westmeath derbies, there were a number of scuffles,skirmishes and a melee to keep the small crowd entertained.

Despite being called a tinker and a knacker by the Athlone mentors, Garrycastles Tom McHugh was actually the recipient of a few stray elbows and this nasty purple nurple!!
