Garrymore GAA Notes

*Juniors make it three from three*
Garrymore Juniors made it three wins from three in division 1F last Saturday evening. Garrymore went into the game on the back of two comprehensive victories over Ballyhaunis and Islandeady in round one and round two respectively. The home side Kiltane also were on course to make it three wins in a row but it was the away side that were much more economical in front of goal. Garrymore opened the scoring in the first minute with a point from full forward Jamie Burke, this was cancelled out four minutes later when Kiltane replied with one of their own. Garrymore dominated position for the next twenty minutes and added further scores from James King, Micheal Connolly (Free), Jamie Burke and Sean Golden and could of added a few three pointers but elected to take the points instead. During this period Kiltane kicked numerous balls into Shane McHale hands which set up the Garrymore attacks. With five minutes to go in the half Kiltane started to come alive and got their second score of the game via a free. Both sides traded further points to take the score to 0-7 to 0-4 to Garrymore at half-time. Garrymore started the second half like the first scoring the first point, this time by corner forward Micheal Connolly. Two minutes later on the 40th minute, midfielder Myles Fallon made a long solo run from midfield deep into the Kiltane half and shot high past the Kiltane goal keeper to push Garrymore’s lead out to seven, 1-08 to 0-04. Both sides again traded points and with five minutes to go Kiltane got a goal and a point in quick succession to leave just three between the sides. Garrymore drew more men behind the ball to protect the lead which that duly did, with neither side scoring for the remainder of the game. Garrymore came away with the victory and the two points on a scoreline of Garrymore 1-09 Kiltane 1-06.
