Garrycastle Sail Past Killucan

Friday 3rd August 2012. Senior Championship
Killucan 0-08 … 3-14 Garrycastle

While an evening of torrential rain left the town of Athlone twinned with Atlantis, just 10 miles away in Moate, Garrycastle cruised to a 15 point victory over Killucan in the Senior football championship.

While some spectators commented at Garrycastles seemingly weakened starting line up, they showed little or no sign of weakness with Minor team graduates Gary McCallon and Justin Barrett putting in good battling performances at corner and half back, while Sean Brennan kept his second chean sheet of the Championship since switching to goals.

Garrycastle got a lucky strike to set up the win when Conor Cosgroves long range free kick looped right over the Killucan goalkeeper and full back and straight into the net, as Patrick Mulvihill done everything he could to put the pair off balance under the high ball.

While the first was fortunate, there certainly was nothing lucky about the forwards second goal in the half as he unleashed a powerful drive to rattle the net and put Garrycastle into a commanding lead.

In the second half, Garrycastle marched on and while Killucan doubled their half time tally from 4 points to 8, a Patrick Mulvihill penalty ended all chances of a comeback and with the introduction of Gary Dolan, Aidan Browne and Johnny McGuire late in the half, the strenght in depth ensured a resounding win.
