Castlemitchell U 11’s welcomed Athy for their first game in phase 1 of go games. Playing with the advantage of a strong wind Athy started very well by scoring the first 3 points of the match Castlemitchell soon settled and bounced back with the next 3 pts. The remainder of the half was nip and tuck with Castlemitchell edging ahead on a scoreline of 0-8 to 0-5 at HT. Castlemitchell started the second half strongly and taking advantage of the wind scored the first 3 scores of the second half. Athy came back with a goal and a point. Through good tacking and applying pressure the castlemitchell boys got on top and put enough scores on the board to see the game out. Well done to Athy and Castlemitchell on an excellent game of football.
