Guinness Brews Up a Win Over Centerpoint
Sure, it was wet and muddy, but at least it was cold.
Guinness defeated Centerpoint Brewing 8-9 to 2-5 on Sunday on the moist and windy Sunday morning of April 15th, 2018.
Despite playing without subs, Guinness was able to get out in front early in the match with some big contributions from their full forwards, Nick Morgan and Andretta Erickson, who outscored the entire Centerpoint crew all on their own. The inclement weather and soppy sliotars didn’t seem to slow down the Guinness gang as they went into halftime with a small but damp lead, and they kept raining on Centerpoint’s parade in the second half as they steadily moistened their lead.
Halfback Jacob Owens increased his streak of matches with bloody fingers to two while playing soggy defense. Centerpoint had great difficulty getting thru the Guinness defense, which covered them like a poncho, and just as difficult to get out from under. Owens and the rest of the Guinness backs, Horan, Touhy, and McShane, did fantastic work removing soggy balls from their region, and setting up the forwards for easy scoring opportunities.
