Faugh’s v Aughnamullen: Our RFL 1B campaign began at a wet and windy Aughnamullen on Saturday past. The Faughs started strong aided by a fortuitous Niall Rice goal but Aughnamullen dug in and came back strong in the latter part of the half. Our hosts went in at the break a point ahead. Goals win matches and in the second half substitute Odhran McArdle raised the green flag after some great interplay from the team. Aughnamullen fought to the end but Castleblayney went home with the points on a scoreline Aughnamullen 0-10, Castleblayney 2-07.
Next up in RFL 1B is a home game against Ballybay weekend after next.
