Champions see off plucky ‘Castle

Dromore’s Ciaran McCoy on the attack against Greencastle

Dromore..1-15
Greencastle…..1-10

RELEGATION-threatened Greencastle pushed the reigning league champions Dromore all the way at sunny Gardrum Park yesterday lunchtime but again were left with nothing to show for their efforts.

The match was effectively won by the hosts with an unanswered scoring blitz in the run up to half-time when they registered a goal and four points on the spin, Colm MacRory rifling to the net in the 20th minute.

It helped them carve out a 1-8 to 0-4 interval advantage, and despite the best efforts of Cahir McCullagh, Conor Carson, Christopher Gillen and Barry McGarvey in a gutsy second half display, Greencastle just couldn’t peg back the deficit sufficiently.

This was a workmanlike effort from Dromore, missing the services of county men Cathal McCraron and Ronan McNabb, but sprightly showings from Fabian O’Neill, Sean McNabb, Colm MacRory and top scorer Emmet McNabb enabled them to hold their dogged visitors at arms length.
