Thursday night was due to see two u/12 teams in action, but due to a bereavement in Ballyteague, where we send our condolonces, the green Mitchells team did not play.
However the white Mitchells team travelled to play in one of the best go games matches seen in Castledermot in many a day, with Castledermot getting a goal within the first minute , the young Mitchells were on the back foot. In a ding dong first half both sides exchanged scores and when referee Dessie Coyle blew for half time the home side were 5 points up. The young Mitchells piled on the pressure in the second half but could not break down a gallant Castledermot defence who held out for a win with only a few points between the sides. As in all go games the ref will keep the score but we would like to congragulate Castledermot on their performance and sportsmanship and to wish them well in the coming weeks.
