Championship v Castlelyons in Killeagh on Monday 19th March
Carrigtwohill 0-05 Castlelyons 2-11

Our U21 footballers made an early exit from the championship with a heavy defeat against Castlelyons last Monday afternoon in Killeagh. Injuries and immigration resulted in the loss of ten players from the panel for the game and this certainly put the team at a serious disadvantage going into the game. Castlelyons got off to a great start with a couple of points in the first five minutes followed by a goal before Carrigtwohill managed to register our first point on the scoreboard mid way through the first half. Castlelyon's superiority continued for most of the first half with them putting another two points onto the scoreboard before halftime. Towards the end of the first half Carrig began to fight back, with some excellent defending by our full back line and another point registered by Christopher Keegan before halftime, leaving the score at 0-02 to 1-06 at the end of the first thirty minutes.


Despite playing against the wind in the second half and Catlelyons kicking over two early points in the second half, Carrig began to get a stronger hold on the game around mid field. With Paraic Hogan moving to partner an excellent Cathal McCarthy in the middle of the field Carrig began show some more attacking form. Strong attacks resulted in points from Tomas Hogan and William McCarthy. Carrig were unlucky not to have narrowed the gap further when awarded a penalty, which we failed to convert, half way through the next half. Shortly afterwards Castlelyons put the game beyond reach with a second goal.
Overall a very spirited performance by a very young and committed group of players against a very experienced and well prepared Castlelyons outfit.

Challenge v Douglas in Carrigtwohill on Friday 2nd March

Carrigtwohill 1-4 Douglas 0-12

U21 Footballers start preparation for the upcoming Championship

Our U21 footballers, with a number of new players togging out at this grade for the first time, delivered a very spirited performance against a stronger Douglas team under lights in Carrigtwohill last Friday evening 2nd of March. The team understandably took some time to settle into the game, with Douglas racing into a four point lead early on the game. However with some strong performances by Cathal McCarthy at centre field and Tomas Hogan at centre back Carrig managed to get a hold on the game and managed to pull back a goal scored by Shane Delvin before half time score. Eoin O'Mahony had an excellent game in goals pulling off some point blank saves denying Douglas pulling ahead further in the first half.


Carrigtwohill stepped up their efforts in the second half with a couple of well taken points by Christopher Keegan helping the team keep in touch with Douglas throughout the second half. Douglas managed to pull ahead once again mid way through the second half scoring a couple more points from play. However Carrigtwohill finished strongly with two additional points added to the score board in the last five minutes of the game.
Overall a very spirited first run out for the team with our next challenge game now planned for Monday 12th next in Carrig at 8:00pm versus Kildorrey.

Team: Eoin O'Mahony, Oliver Cooney, Paraic Hogan, John Carey, Jay Horgan, Tomas Hogan, Sean Ronan, Cathal McCarthy ,
