Final score: Castlegar 2-21 beat Kinvara 3-16.
Disappointment for Kinvara. We fell behind by 7 points halfway through second half. Sub David Huban scored a cracker goal shortly after coming on at 10 mins left, and followed up with another green flag two mins later from a 30 yard free, but Castlegar were able to tag on the few points to keep the distance. We had it reduced to a single point with 4 mins left, but couldnt get the equaliser or lead. They scored in final minute to make it a two point margin.
Where does that leave us?
We have meaningless game left v Kiltormer. Both of us are in the relegation semi-finals, and as other group is anybodys, our match v Kiltormer is nothing but match practice really.
Castlegar are now safe. We will be playing either Padraig Pearses, St. Thomas' or Liam Mellows in a relegation semi-final.
Thanks to the players this evening for their efforts. Time to get focused for the next one.
