Castledawson under 16 footballers hosted neighbours Lavey in Round 6 of the league on Thursday June 4th. The game was played in warm evening sunshine but the strong wind had a major influence on proceedings. Lavey elected to play with the wind and despite some excellent work from a new look Castledawson defence, the visitors hit some fine long range points to lead at the break by 1-7 to 0-2. The second half was a mirror image of the first with ‘ dominating and shooting from distance. Ordhan Mullan and Brian Ludlow worked hard, Ryan Mc Peake and Aidan Bradley scored some fine points and Nathan Young’s goal was well worth the wait. Overall our accuracy was not quite good enough and Castledawson missed at least 6 scores by shooting narrowly wide. Lavey scored two late points to maintain a winning cushion. Final score Lavey 1-10 Castledawson 1-5. Despite this defeat the team deserves great credit for continuing to give maximum effort in adversity. Castledawson missed 4 regular players for a variety of reasons. Yet a number of new boys showed their potential while others played in unaccustomed positions and made a good job of it. Special mention must be made of Gary Chesney who moved from the forwards to full back and may have made the number 3 jersey his own. Castledawson Squad; Jarlath Gartland, Conor Taggart, Gary Chesney, Michael McElwee, Aidan Keenan, Paul McCoy, Fintan Mulholland, Brian Ludlow, Nathan Young, Ordhan Mullan, Aidan Bradley, Stephen O Hagan, Ryan McPeake, Karl Martin, Sean Toner and Ryan Heaney.
