Junior Championship 

Well done to the junior team who defeated Garrycastle in Tubberclair last Thursday night in the playoff semi-final. The lads played against a strong breeze in the first half and Garrycastle enjoyed much of the early possession. A goal from Shane Carroll either side of points from Conor Murray and Donal Coughlan gave The Downs a strong foothold in the game. Garrycastle finished the half on the front foot and with The Downs reduced to 14 just before the interval a big second half performance was required, as the sides went in 1-06 apiece. The Downs began the second half with huge intensity and opening up a two-point lead within minutes of the restart thanks to Jock Carroll and Cian Carty. Garrycastle continued to threat but soon picked up a red card of their own, from this point onwards The Downs began to dominate proceedings and with the introduction of Luke Folan and Shane Power our attack continued to flourish with Jack Carroll adding a goal in the closing minutes giving The Downs a 2-14 to 1-09.


Minor Championship

Well done to the minor lads who continued their winning start to the championship with a 2-14 to 2-04 win against Kilucan last Wednesday evening.
