Leinster Intermediate Club Championship
Caulry 0-7
Dunlavin 1-11
Our lads failed to get going in Athlone on Saturday afternoon last when they battled it out against Wicklow county champions, Dunlavin in the opening round of the Leinster club championship.
Paddy Sleator opened the scoring account within the opening 30 seconds after combining nicely with Conor McCormack. The Dunlavin forwards soon followed suit as they tagged on two points to take the lead. A converted-free from a tight angle put the Wicklow side two points the good after 4 minutes. Gary Flanagan then added another for Caulry after a fine pass from McCormack. However, the opposition responded in style as they tore down the field and rattled the back of the Caulry net. Despite a surge forward from Sean Clinton, our lads struggled to convert their chances as their tally of wides grew. The Dunlavin forwards, however, capitalised on their chances with a nice fisted-effort on the 9th minute. Harry Hughes made a run forward with the move being finished off nicely by Emmet Nally. Our lads were then unlucky as two goal chances were brilliantly saved before Andy O’Sullivan put his name on the scoreboard after settling for a point. However, the opposition’s dominance at midfield proved to be a vital platform as they kicked the next two scores of the game. Another point from O’Sullivan drew one back on the 22nd minute. A Flanagan goal was disallowed late in the half due to the ‘square-ball’ rule which meant Caulry trailed by four at the interval on a scoreline of 1-6 to 0-5.
An early goal chance from our lads was well swept up by the Dunlavin defence before the two teams traded wides. Dunlavin then stretched the margins between the teams with points on the 37th and 38th minutes. Cillian Nagle brought off a good save as the opposition sent the rebound over the bar. Our lads struggled to put passages of play together in the forward line as another point for the opposition put eight between the sides. Adam Donoghue drew one back on the 51st minute which was soon cancelled out by a converted-free for the opposition. A late free from Conor McCormack saw the scoreboard read 1-11 to 0-7 at the fulltime whistle as the Wicklow men deservedly ran out winners.
Team & Scorers: Cillian Nagle, Sean Fox, Eoin Shortall, Sean Clinton, Damien Dolan, Kevin Maguire, Harry Hughes, Stephen Connolly, Neil Clinton, Emmet Nally (0-1), Conor McCormack (0-1, 1f), Colin Murphy, Paddy Sleator (0-1), Gary Flanagan (0-1), Andy O’Sullivan (0-2)
Subs: Thomas Dunning for Colin Murphy, Alan Daly for Paddy Sleator, Adam Donoghue (0-1) for Emmet Nally, John Maguire for Sean Fox, Liam Malynn for Andy O’Sullivan
Despite this disappointing defeat, it won’t define our year. Our lads must be commended for their otherwise hugely successful championship campaign. After a sluggish start with two defeats, the lads managed to turn their year around and lifted the Geraghty cup for the fourth time in the club’s history. As well as claiming promotions to senior ranks for their 2020 campaign, our lads must be praised for the fine brand of football they played. Without doubt, the lads have a very bright future of football ahead of them.
Well done to the lads and their management team of John Benton, Damien Keenan and Robbie Ryan for their dedication during the year.

Intermediate Winning Team of 1969
At halftime of during the game, our Intermediate winning team of 1969 were honoured. This year marks the 50th anniversary since Caulry claimed the Peter Geraghty cup for the first time after beating Ballynacargy on a scoreline of 2-6 to 0-6. The then secretary Willie Claffey welcomed the team onto the pitch and all past players were given a copy of the match programme from that day. The winning team was as follows: Stephen Hanevy, Frank Conlon, Jim McDonnell, Packie Allen, Willie Allen, Padraig Malone, Tom Seery, Tom Fitzgearld, Pat Allen, TP Hickey, James Fox, Noel Nugent (RIP), Jack Allen, George Hatton, PJ Cunningham, Eamon Daly, Mickey Murray, Seamus Allen, Jimmy Fallon, Richie Allen.

Leinster Intermediate Club Championship Fixture
After their great achievement in claiming the county title, our Intermediate squad now turn their attention to the Leinster club championship campaign which takes place on Sunday next, October 26th in Athlone. The opposition will be provided by Wicklow county champions, Dunlavin. This eagerly-awaited clash throws-in at 1:30pm. All supporters are asked to cheer on the Caulry lads in their bid for glory as they represent club and county in pursuit of more honours.
The very best of luck to the lads and their management team of John Benton, Damien Keenan and Robbie Ryan.

U14 Division 2 Championship Final
Caulry 2-11
Tubberclair 1-8
Our U14 boys were crowned county champs of the Division 2 Championship after they overcame Tubberclair on Saturday afternoon last in Rosemount.
Both teams were slow to settle and were guilty of missing some early scoring chances as they came to terms with the slippery conditions. Cormac Murphy then opened the scoring account after 5 minutes as he fired over a point after some good out-field play by Tadgh Baker. A pass from Andrew Stuart Trainor fell into the arms of Tiarnan O’Donovan who made no mistake as he tore through the Tubberclair defence as riffled the back of the net. However, it was the opposition who responded in incredible fashion as they raced up the field and registered their own three-pointer to get off the mark. A point moments later left the game at level-pegging with 9 minutes gone. Max O’Sullivan done well when called upon in goals as he diffused the Tubberclair threat as the ball was worked up to Aaron Murphy who edged Caulry in front. The teams then hit a dry-spell as a number of attempts feel wide of the target with Tubberclair kicking the next score of the game on the 20th minute. It was our boys who then launched the next series of attacks with just three paying dividends as scores from Stuart Trainor and Brendan McCormack left Caulry leading by three at the break on a scoreline of 1-5 to 1-2.
Our lads burst out of the tracks in the second half with points from Stuart Trainor and Oisin Shortall stretching the margins between the sides. Caulry then pounced on the Tubberclair kickout as a goal from McCormack put our lads eight points the good. Once again, the Caulry defence held tight when put under pressure by the opposition’s forwards as the game went on a point-for-point basis with Murphy and Stuart Trainor on target for Caulry. Cormac Murphy and Oisin Shortall must be praised for their tireless performance throughout as Aaron Hanevy pointed on the 47th minute to cushion our lead. However, the Tubberclair boys still had a burst of energy in them as they rattled off the next three points to narrow the deficit. Shortall restored one of these late in the half as Tubberclair dominated most of the possession. The opposition tried hard for a goal in the closing stages of the game as the Caulry defence held tight before Tubberclair sent over the last point of the game, ensuring our lads ran out winners on a scoreline of 2-11 to 1-8.
Congratulations and well done to the lads and their management team of Niall Shortall, Tom Stuart Trainor and Colin White.
Team & Scorers: Max O’Sullivan, Darragh Shortall, Eoin Murphy, Cian Heavin, Cormac Murphy (0-1), Aaron Murphy (0-2), David Gaynor, Andrew Stuart Trainor (0-4, 3f), Tiarnan O’Donovan (1-0), Aaron Hanevy (0-1), Tadgh Baker, Brendan McCormack (1-1), Conor Hynes, Oisin Shortall (0-2, 1f), Dean Byrne
Subs: Lee Corcoran for Conor Hynes

U20 Championship
Caulry 0-13
Mullingar Shamrocks 1-11
Our U20s bowed out of this year’s championship when they hosted Mullingar Shamrocks in the park on Sunday morning last.
The visitors hit the ground running with a goal two minutes after the throw-in as our lads were slow to start. Donoghue then opened our scoring account with his point from play on the 4th minute. Caulry punished a mistake from the Mullingar Shamrocks defence as Donoghue added his second. The teams then traded wides before a point from Liam Malynn levelled the scoring account. Sean Fox brought off a good intercept in the Caulry defence as the move was finished at the other end of the field with Sean Woods adding a point. Mullingar Shamrocks were next to score, which preceded a purple patch for the homeside which saw Malynn, Donoghue and Cialan Dollard adding points courtesy of good outfield play by Adam Mullins and Neil Clinton. The Mullingar lads drew two back on the 20th and 22nd minutes before our lads outscored them 0-3 to 0-0 to lead at the interval on a scoreline of 0-10 to 1-3.
Mullins made a good burst forward early in the second half and tagged on the opening score. The Mullingar Shamrocks’ goalie brought off a good save moments later as Caulry recycled the ball well with Colin Murphy settling for a point on the 37th minute. Another goal chance went astray for our lads as Mullingar Shamrocks began chipping away at the deficit with three unanswered points. The Mullingar men dominated at midfield and our lads began to struggle as their tally of wides grew. The opposition then drew level on the 54th minute. A third goal chance failed to pay dividends for our lads as Malynn put Caulry’s noses in front with his converted-free on the 57th minute. However, it was the opposition who finished the better side, tagging on two points late in the game to steal the win on a scoreline of 1-11 to 0-13.
Team & Scorers: James Clavin, Glen Carolan, Eoin Shortall, Olan Healy, Adam Mullins (0-1), Sean Fox, Dylan Lowry, Colin Murphy (0-2), Neil Clinton, Lee Guinan Malone, Cialan Dollard (0-1), Liam Malynn (0-4, 2f), James Carey, Sean Woods (0-2), Adam Donoghue (0-3)

IFC Final
Caulry 3-13
Milltownpass 2-10
Our lads made history on Sunday evening last when they took to the field in TEG Cusack Park the 2019 Writech Intermediate Football Championship Final.
Caulry raced out of the tracks with a shot from Harry Hughes being well blocked down before Milltownpass worked the ball up the field, finishing the move with a converted-free. Kevin Maguire and Damien Dolan combined well in the Caulry defence as they set Colin Murphy up for his opening point as three minutes elapsed. The Caulry lads showed great composure and patience in attack as they rounded the Milltownpass defence, with Gary Flanagan sending a fine point over the bar. Our lads found good rhythm to their play as the next two scores of the game came from the boot of Conor McCormack, one a routine free and the other coming from a good pass from Maguire. Flanagan then showed great vision as a quick-free was worked through Paddy Sleator to Emmet Nally who riffled the back of the net on the 8th minute. A point from Sleator moments later put Caulry seven points the good. It was the opposition who launched the next series of attacks with two paying dividends and narrowing the deficit to five. However, Nally and McCormack soon restored the lead with their points on the 14th and 16th minutes. Milltownpass never gave up as they built from the kickout and were awarded a penalty, which was finished neatly to the back of the net. The Caulry lads never seemed phased though as Maguire responded in style with a well-taken goal after combining nicely with Andy O’Sullivan. Milltownpass drew two back before McCormack shot for our third goal of the game to leave Caulry ahead 3-7 to 1-5 at the break.
Milltownpass were first to get motoring in the second half with a converted-free shortly after the resumption of play. A shot from Sleator was well blocked down by the opposition’s goalie as the men in black narrowed the deficit with two more points. McCormack opened our second half scoring tally on the 40th minute with a pointed-free. Our lads then built from the kickout with Hughes and O’Sullivan tagging on scores. This lead was cut back to four after Milltownpass tagged on an unanswered 1-1. The teams then traded points, with McCormack registering his fifth after a good burst forward from Sean Clinton. Further points from Flanagan and Nally preceded the fulltime whistle which was welcomed by a red wave of Caulry fans bursting onto the field as our lads deservedly prevailed on a scoreline of 3-13 to 2-10. Joint-captains Conor McCormack and Eoin Fox then climbed the steps of Cusack Park and lifted the Peter Geraghty Cup.
Congratulations to the lads and their management team of John Benton, Robbie Ryan and Damien Keenan on their hugely successful year. The lads must be commended for their hard-work and commitment throughout the year, the results of which was seen in Cusack Park with the fine brand of football that was on display.
Many thanks also to our vast army of supporters who turned out in great numbers on the day.
Team & Scorers: Cillian Nagle, Sean Fox, Eoin Fox, Sean Clinton, Damien Dolan, Kevin Maguire (1-0), Harry Hughes (0-1), Stephen Connolly, Neil Clinton, Emmet Nally (1-2), Conor McCormack (1-5, f2), Colin Murphy (0-1), Paddy Sleator (0-1), Gary Flanagan (1-2), Andy O’Sullivan (0-1)

Intermediate Championship Final Fixture
All roads lead to TEG Cusack Park on Sunday next for the eagerly awaited intermediate championship county final when Caulry take on Milltownpass. Both sides met in the round 3 group-stages of this year’s campaign, where our lads managed to get the better of the opposition on a scoreline of 3-11 to 2-8. Our lads will be hoping to continue on their winning ways and claim the coveted intermediate title for a fifth time in the club’s history. It has been a 5 year wait since we last claimed the title in 2014 and our lads will undoubtedly be hungry for the win when they take to the field on Sunday at 4pm. This year also marks the 50th anniversary since we lifted the Peter Geraghty cup in 1969 so hopes are high that our lads will follow suit on Sunday evening. All supporters are asked to cheer on the Caulry lads in their bid for glory and their effort to bring the Peter Geraghty Cup back to the parish once again.
The very best of luck to the lads and their management team of John Benton, Damien Keenan and Robbie Ryan.

IFC Semi-Final Replay
Caulry 1-12
Tang 3-4
There was not much separating Caulry and Tang when both sides took to the field in Athlone for the semi-final replay of the intermediate championship on Sunday afternoon last.
Conor McCormack opened the scoring tally after 2 minutes after combining nicely with Paddy Sleator. Our lads then missed two scoring chances after an attempt from Emmet Nally was blocked down and Andy O’Sullivan’s effort fell wide of the target before Tang put their noses in front with two points from play. This lead was short-lived as a good passage of play from Damien Dolan, Sean Clinton and Nally set Gary Flanagan up for a goal on the 8th minute. Sean Fox defended well as he worked the ball up the field through O’Sullivan and Colin Murphy, with Murphy finishing the move with a fine point. However, Tang then hit a purple patch as they dominated midfield and rattled off two quick goals to put them three points the good. Our lads were not going to back down though, as they dug deep for the remaining 10 minutes as points from O’Sullivan, Stephen Connolly and Murphy had it level-pegging at the interval on a scoreline of 1-5 to 2-2.
Caulry started the second half well with Connolly adding his second after 30 seconds. McCormack and Kevin Maguire worked hard out the field as they set Nally and Dolan up for points moments later. Murphy then stretched the Caulry lead to four after a brilliant intercept from Dolan. However, Tang were soon brought back within the minimum margin after being awarded a penalty on the 39th minute, which they converted on their third effort after two saves from Cillian Nagle. Both teams then missed some scoring chances with the next score of the game coming on the 53rd minute as Tang levelled the match. O’Sullivan was fouled up front and Murphy slotted over the ensuing free to edge Caulry ahead. The teams then traded points with McCormack adding one for Caulry. Flanagan restored Caulry’s tw- point lead on the 60th minute as the Caulry defence held strong, denying Tang’s threat for scores to ensure their county final spot on a scoreline of 1-12 to 3-4.
Team & Scorers: Cillian Nagle, Sean Fox, Eoin Fox, Sean Clinton, Damien Dolan (0-1), Kevin Maguire, Harry Hughes, Stephen Connolly (0-2), Neil Clinton, Emmet Nally (0-1), Conor McCormack (0-2), Colin Murphy (0-4, 1f), Paddy Sleator, Gary Flanagan (1-1), Andy O’Sullivan (0-1)

Intermediate Championship Semi-Final Replay Fixture
Caulry and Tang must go to battle again after last weekend’s draw on a scoreline of 1-9 apiece to see which side will advance to this year’s county final. This remarkable match was like history repeating itself as when the sides last met at the semi-final stages of the championship in 2014, a replay was also necessary to separate the teams after finishing all-square on 1-10 apiece. On that occasion, Caulry managed to get the better of Tang in the replay, prevailing by the narrowest of margins on a scoreline of 0-10 to 0-9 in Athlone. Hopefully our lads will follow suit this year when they take to the field for the replay on Sunday afternoon next in Athlone. Kick-off for this all-important clash is at 3pm all supporters are asked to get behind the lads in their bid to make the intermediate final against an awaiting Milltownpass side.
The very best of luck to the team and their management.

U6 Nursery Football
Our U6 Nursery came to a conclusion on Tuesday evening last on a beautiful sunny evening in the park. It was a great year of fun practicing new skills and learning basic fundamental movements. The club nursery is all about fun, enjoyment and forming friendships.
Many thanks to club man Kevin Maguire, Boidu Sayeh from Rosemount and Johanna Maher from Tyrrellspass who gave their time freely to join us on the evening and present the children will their trophies. We would also like to thank Donie Malone who brought the Division 3 cup and the O'Byrne Cup for the children to see.
Well done to all the children on their hugely successful year and many thanks to all the coaches and parents for their continued support and contributions.

U10 Larry Nugent Tournament
Our U10 boys had a very busy morning in the park on Saturday morning last as they played host to a series of teams for the annual Larry Nugent Tournament. Four clubs took part in the blitz including St. Josephs GaaCastledaly Gaa, Garrycastle GAA and Caulry with all clubs fielding two teams. Proceedings began at 11am and after some exciting games, the final pairings were as follows:
‘Iarmhí’ Final: St. Josephs vs. Caulry
‘Iarmhí’ Runner-Up Final: Castledaly vs. Garrycastle‘
Westmeath’ Final: St. Josepsh vs. Garrycastle
Westmeath’ Runner-Up Final: Caulry vs. Castledaly
The teams along with the runners-up were then presented with their medals by Larry Nugent Jnr. on behalf of the Nugent family.
Well done to all the teams and managements involved and to everyone involved in the organising of this tournament. A huge thanks to the parents who provided refreshments on the day and to Rory Mullins, Luke Buckley, Stephen Connolly and Olan Healy for refereeing. Well done all!

U17 Championship
Caulry 0-9
Killucan 4-7
Our U17 lads bowed out of this year’s championship at the quarter-final stages when they hosted a strong Killucan side in the park on Saturday afternoon last.
Killucan started well with three points on the trot, two from frees and one a fine score from play. Rory Mullins then got Caulry motoring after 4 minutes with his well-worked point. Killucan missed some scoring chances as Caulry capitalised, with Alan Malynn converting two frees to draw level. A fine score from Shane Lawless after some good play from James Buckley momentarily put Caulry in front. However, Killucan responded in style by rattling the back of the Caulry net on the 17th minute. Our boys were unlucky as they were denied a goal by a Killucan defender after a brilliant block down. Mullins booted for his second of the game to round off the first half scoring and leave Caulry trailing by one at the break.
The saying that ‘goals win matches’ rang true on this occasion as a blitz of Killucan goals during the second half were crucial to ending our lads’ campaign. The opposition started like an express train after the restart, kicking 1-3 without reply. Points from Malynn cut the deficit by three between the 41st and 46th minutes. However, Killucan soon had their lead restored as they goaled for a third time soon after. The Killucan forwards punched holes in the Caulry defence and added an unanswered 1-1. The Caulry boys struggled to get going, with a late score from Senan Baker seeing Killucan advance to the semi-final with seven points to spare on a scoreline of 4-7 to 0-9.
Team & Scorers: Ruiari Casey, Ciaran Gaynor, Tom Cloonan, Harry Stuart Trainor, Colm Shortall, Olan Healy, Sean Murphy, James Carey, Rory Mullins (0-2), Senan Baker (0-1, 1f), Luke Buckley, Leroy Coughlan, Alan Malynn (0-5, 4f), Shane Lawless (0-1), James Buckley

IFC Semi-Final
Caulry 1-9
Tang 1-9
Our lads must do it all again after they finished level with Tang in their semi-final clash in a wet and slippery Cusack Park on Sunday afternoon last.
After some sloppy possession by both sides, it was Conor McCormack who opened the scoring tally on 2 minutes following good play from Damien Dolan. A scoring attempt from Emmet Nally was well blocked down, but moments later a fabulous passing move between Nally and Gary Flanagan found Andy O’Sullivan who made no mistake in rattling the opposition’s net. Sean Clinton then put Caulry five points to good before Tang got off the mark on the 7th minute. O’Sullivan was fouled up front and Colin Murphy done well when called upon as he converted the ensuing short-range free with ease. A period of wasteful play then followed which can be accredited to the pouring rain with our defence doing well to keep the opposition scoreless. Sean Fox brought off a vital intercept on the quarter hour mark which was worked up the field and resulted in an impressive long-range point from Stephen Connolly. Harry Hughes then put his name on the scoresheet after nice combined teamwork from Nally and Fox, before Clinton’s second point of the game gave Caulry a eight point lead. Tang then seemed to get some momentum in their play for the closing 10 minutes of the half as three points, two from frees and one being helped over the bar by Cillian Nagle, reduced the Caulry lead five. An unfortunate fumble by Nagle late in the half resulted in a lucky goal for the opposition which saw the scoreboard read 1-6 to 1-4 at the halftime whistle.
It was Tang who opened the scoring tally with a fine long-range point after 3 minutes. Adam Donoghue restored the Caulry lead moments later after a pass from Neil Clinton. Tang then kicked two points to level the match on the 37th minute. However, Caulry responded in style with a superb point from Nally edging our boys in front. The opposition then took the lead for the first time in the game on the 51st minute courtesy of two converted-frees. However, our lads must be commended as they never lost their composure with Connolly tapping over the equalising point two minutes later from a free. Our lads worked tirelessly in the closing stages of the game and done enough to keep the opposition at bay and forced the game to a replay which will be played next weekend.

Minor Championship Semi-Final
Caulry 2-10
The Downs 1-15
Our minors bowed out of this year’s championship at the semi-final stages when they hosted The Downs in a high scoring affair on Thursday evening last.
The game started off with a slow tempo with Alan Malynn accounting for two Caulry frees before points for The Downs on the 13th and 14th minutes levelled proceedings. Both defences done well when put under pressure as the forwards struggled to score with the next score of the game arriving on the 21st minute in the form of a converted-free for the visitors. The opposition then attacked the following kickout as a superb point from play doubled their lead. Thomas Dunning then brought Caulry back within the minimum margin with his fine long-range effort. James Clavin brought off some vital interceptions in goal when called upon as a fabulous passing move from Luke Buckley was finished to the net by Malynn on the 24th minute. Some chances went astray then for our lads as Malynn kicked the next score of the game from a free. However, there was just enough time remaining for the opposition to work the ball up the field and point to leave Caulry in front 1-4 to 0-5 at the break.
The Downs started like an express train after the restart with a quick scoring blitz ultimately proving Caulry’s undoing. This period of dominance began within 30 second of the resumption of play as The Downs rattled the back of the Caulry net. Another point two minutes later saw them stretch their lead to two. What should have been a goal courtesy of Malynn was defended well and worked down the field and slotted over the bar on the 46th minute by The Downs. The opposition tagged on another four points before our boys opened their second half account, this coming courtesy of Malynn on the 42nd minute. Senan Baker stepped up with a superb score moments after. Our boys were brought right back into contention after some Trojan work from Rory Mullins who attacked the opposition’s kickout and riffled the ball to the back of the net to leave just two between the sides by the end of the third quarter. The Downs didn’t panic as they slotted over another score from play. Baker showed great vision with his well-taken score on the 46th minute. Although dominating a lot of the possession, our lads struggled to get their names on the scoresheet with Baker kicking the next score of the game with just six minutes remaining. However, The Downs responded in style as two points from play restored their three-point lead. Another point from Baker cut the deficit, but the opposition were not going to let their lead slip as a converted-free moments later kept Caulry at arm’s length. Malynn then kicked the last score of the game deep into injury time as The Downs advanced to the county final with two points to spare on a scoreline of 1-15 to 2-10.

U14 Championship
Caulry 2-7
St. Josephs 2-6
Our U14 boys notched up another win on Thursday evening last when they battled it out against St. Josephs in a tight affair.
Some good play early on in the game from David Gaynor set Andrew Stuart Trainor up for the opening score before the opposition edged in front with two points. Stuart Trainor then launched Caulry into the lead as he converted a penalty after six minutes. St. Josephs struggled to convert chances as another score from the Caulry full-forward put the homeside three points the good. The opposition then found their shooting boots, tapping over three points as a late score from Stuart Trainor put the minimum between the sides at the break.
Despite kicking the first score of the second half after good play from Tiarnan O’Donovan, our boys failed to push on and let the opposition back into the game. St. Josephs made the most of their period of superiority as they tagged on an unanswered 2-1. Stuart Trainor drew one back from a placed ball on the 51st minute. Caulry then regained initiative as a score from Brendan Kelly McCormack after a good pass from Lee Corcoran left three between the sides. The Caulry boys dug deep for the closing minutes of the game with Stuart Trainor levelling the game with his goal from a well-worked free. Oisin Shortall then done well as he kicked a free under pressure to put Caulry’s noses in front. Our defence held strong late in the game with Ian Malone doing well in goals to clear any attacks from the St. Josephs’ boys to ensure Caulry escaped with the win on a scoreline of 2-7 to 2-6.

U17 Championship
Caulry 7-10
Cill Óige 4-11
Our U17 lads advance to Round 2 of this year’s championship after coming out on top over Cill Óige in the park on Saturday afternoon last.
Both teams burst out of the tracks, exchanging early goals with Alan Malynn on target for Caulry. Malynn then combined nicely with Shane Lawless who rattled the back of the Cill Óige net on the 4th minute. Caulry attacked the following kickout with Malynn finishing with a fine point from play. The teams then traded pointed-frees on the 9th and 10th minutes before Luke Buckley sent over his first point of the game after some good fielding from James Carey. Cill Óige struggled to get scores from play as they tapped over their third free of the game. Senan Baker and Carey worked hard out the field as they set Malynn and Lawless up for two more fine points from play. Baker showed great vision when he picked his spot and riffled the back of the Cill Óige net on the 21st minute. Another Malynn point was sandwiched between two Cill Óige frees with the opposition adding their first score from play moments before the halftime whistle to leave Caulry leading 3-6 to 1-5.
Cill Óige were first to launch an attack in the second half with a goal chance trickling off to the side and wide. Baker then made no mistake at the other end of the field and he shot for his second goal of the game. Moments later Baker secured his hattrick after a good patch of play from Leroy Coughlan. James Buckley put his name on the scoresheet on the 33rd minute before the opposition drew two back with a free and point from play. Malynn got lucky on the 40th minute as his ball in hopped in over the goalie’s head. However, Cill Óige responded in style with a well-taken goal from distance. Olan Healy and Rory Mullins combined well outfield as they found Malynn who tagged on a point for the homeside. Cill Óige then hit a purple patch between the 47th and 52nd minutes which yielded an unanswered 2-2 adn left just five between the sides. However, Lawless showed good leadership as he tagged on 1-1 to break the opposition’s momentum. The teams then shared two points before the final whistle as Caulry ran out worthy winners on a scoreline of 7-10 to 4-11.
