Garnish saw off a strong Castletownbere team with a narrow league victory on 20th June. Town came with some big guns and tried every trick in the book to rattle Garnish from the start.
With players away or in midst of exams, there were first starts for Darragh Henshaw, Fintan JL, Paul O’Neill, Cian O’Neil and Darren Deery. Brian Terry opened the scoring with an great long range effort followed by frees from Paul O’Neill and Fintan JL. Despite a strong headwind ‘Town kept in touch and it wasn’t until Jerome O’Dwyer’s 12th minute goal that some daylight emerged. A 2nd goal from Darren Deery gave Garnish a 4 point cushion at half time. Particularly pleasing in the second half is how Garnish managed the game, defending in numbers, retaining possession and working the ball into scoring range. Brian Terry controlled the last 10 minutes after Dylan Henshaw got the insurance score with a well taken goal just after the water break.
