Castleblayney Faugh’s notes week beginning 18/04/2022

Seniors Men: Our second Reserve team took on Donaghmoyne last week in an away match.  With a few players missing some of the lads had to play in different positions in a make shift team but that didn’t seem to affect the team too much.  Ultan McMahon kicked the first point but despite plenty of possession and some great football we were only up by a goal at half time, with the evergreen Christopher Cronin raising scoring the major. In the second half it was touch and go before Kealan scored a quick 1-02 to put Castleblayney firmly in control.  Unlike the first half the lads had their shooting boots on to leave the final score Donaghmoyne 1-09 Castleblayney 4-10. Another good performance from the team.

U16’s: U16 girls played away tonight to near neighbours Aughnamullen. The home team started strong getting a few quick scores but our young ladies grew in confidence and started adding up their own scores to leave it 6-3 to 5-2 in favour of Aughnamullen at half time.   The second half continued in the same form and scores exchanged each way in a free-flowing game. At the end of an entertaining and competitive game Aughnamullen came away the winners on a final score of 9-5 to 7-4.

U15’s: The U15 group had a very good week with all 3 teams recording wins.

The performance of the week belonged to the 3rd team who travelled to Aughnamullen.
