Three Brendan Horgan scores (two frees), a Brendan Twomey point and a Liam O’Sullivan goal had Carrig ahead 1-4 to 0-2. However, five unanswered Castlelyons points to see out the half made it a draw, 1-4 to 0-7.
There was no change upon the restart unfortunately as Castlelyons took a hold of the game. Castlelyons had another 3-3 on the board inside fifteen minutes before a fourth Horgan point registered Carrig’s first score of the second half. Castlelyons added one final point before Carrig finished strongly in the last ten minutes. A Sean Rohan point, a fifth Horgan score and a Pat O’Sullivan goal rounded out Carrig’s total.
