Soccer:

Denny Divison 1B Result: St Brendan's Park 2 - 1 Castlegregory Celtic.
Castle's first defeat of the season came on Sunday morning at the hands of a very well organised Park side in our first away game of the season. The first half was a tight affair with both sides creating chances but it was the Park that managed hit the net just before the break to take the lead. 
Soon after the break they doubled their lead but with 15 mins to go Castle's top marksman Mícheál O'Dowd hit the back of the net with an unstoppable strike to the top corner to bring Castle back into the game. However, despite creating some superb chances the away side couldn't find a leveller and the game finished 2-1.
Overall, with 4 regulars missing there were lots of positives to take away from the game today and with 10 points after 5 games we are still in a great position. Goals: Mícheál O Dowd. Assists: Damien McMahon Best on the day: Mícheál O Dowd (MOTM), Alan McNamara,Enda Whelan & Conor Boden Team : Shane Kenny, Dylan Hoare, Enda Whelan, Conor Boden, Cormac Cronin, Steven Speirs, Alan McNamara, Conor Shannon, Damien McMahon, Conor Hayes, Micheál O'Dowd Subs: Conor O Brien , David O'Brien, Dara Butler, Tomás Butler, Dominic Spillane.

Fixture: Castle are away V Glin Rovers in Glin Co.Limerick on Sunday next at 11:30am in the FAI junior cup.
