SENIOR CO. LEAGUE DIVISION 4 - ROUND 7 - 1/7/2017
Castlegregory 0-17, Beale 0-8.
Castlegregory defeated Beale by nine points in the Division 4 encounter, played in Castlegregory this evening. Although the margin was comfortable in the end, the locals were forced to fight to the end in the face of a dogged Beale display. Playing with the aid of a stiff breeze, Beale opened the scoring with points from James McMahon and Cillian Courtney. Six minutes had passed before Alan Fitzgerald pointed from play for the home side. Excellent defence was succeeding in curbing the Beale forwards and they registered only three more points in the half. Further points from Jordan Quirke, Anto Kelliher and a 45m free from Alan Fitzgerald left the half-time score at 0-8 to 0-5 in favour of Castlegregory.
Castle dominated the second period and could have finished off the game, had they converted some of their numerous goal-scoring chances. Three points by Alan Fitzgerald increased the lead and further points by Liam Maunsell (2) and Jimmy O’ Grady put the result beyond doubt. Final score: Castlegregory 0-17, Beale 0-8.
