29/04/2012: Kildysart U12s beat Lissycasey this evening by score line of 03 07 to 03 04 in gale-force wind conditions.  Stephen Sheehan opened Kildysart's account with a point in first two minutes.  However, with the heavy wind at their back, Lissycasey only conceded another point (from Stephen Sheehan) for the rest of the half, while scoring 02 03 themselves. Then Cian Murphy scored a goal for Kildysart at the end of the half to narrow the gap, Kildysart 01 02 to Lissycasey 02 03.
Seamus "Sham" Casey quickly pointed at the start of the 2nd half, followed by response from Lissycasey and then Celine Dolan pointed in third minute to bring Kildysart to within a goal.  The next ten minutes saw no score from either side until Emmet McMahon (in goals for the 1st half) pointed for Kildysart. Then Seamus Casey found the back of the net and followed that with a point of his own to put Kildysart up by 2 with 15 minutes gone.  With only their 2nd score of the half, Lissycasey goaled and led by a point once again.  With 20 minutes gone Stephen Sheehan gave Kildysart the lead once more when his strike found the back of the net.  The next 4-5 minutes were tense as Kildysart fought off a valiant effort from Lissycasey, but Seamus Casey's point in injury time gave Kildysart the cushion they needed.  Final score Kildysart 03 07 to Lissycasey 03 04.  Best for Kildysart: Seamus Casey, Stephen Sheehan, Darren Creehan.
