Castlemitchell V Moorefield
Castlemitchell U11’s travelled to Moorefield for their 2nd game in phase 1 of go games. In Damp and wet conditions both teams struggled with the conditions early on. In the early stages both teams attacked with intent but were struggling to put scores on the board due to some excellent defending from both sets of backs. In a low scoring half Castlemitchell led @ the break by 1-6 to 1-1.
Castlemitchell started the second half strongly getting to grips with the conditions were moving the ball much quicker and not taking the extra play.
Through good tacking and moving the ball much quicker and accurate shooting the castlemitchell lads got on top and put enough scores on the board to see the game out. Well done to Moorefield and Castlemitchell on an excellent game of football considering the bad conditions.
