Graigue Ballycallan 3-14 Galmoy/Windgap 0-19
Our Under 19’s got their League/Championship campaign off to a winning start on Sunday afternoon 4th October in Kilmanagh beating a strong Galmoy/Windgap team by 4 points.
The visitors got off to the better start going 6 points to 2 ahead in the first ten minutes. GBC got their first goal then through good work from a busy Jeff Neary letting the ball in to OisÍn Egan and he finished very well. Minutes later GBC got a lucky goal when a long free from Stephen Keoghan went straight into the net. Another goal for GBC from Patrick Foley left the score at half time 3-6 to 9 points. The second half was a much tighter affair, good points from Stephen Keoghan and 2 from Tom Brennan were followed up with a handful of frees from Oisín Egan who, given the conditions, was near flawless on the day.
A great performance from all involved with the wind and rain playing a massive factor, it was great to get the campaign off to a positive start.
Next up is Rower Inistioge in The Rower next Sunday at 11.30am.
