Junior Championship 
Caulry 3-7 Coralstown-Kinnegad 0-16 
A draw was a fair outcome in this Junior Championship Section B tie played in the Park last Friday night. Aided by an Alan Carroll goal in the first half Caulry stayed in touch with a determined Coralstown-Kinnegad side who led at the break by 0-8 to 1-3. A better performance by Caulry in the second half which generated a brace of goals from Andy O'Sullivan (inset) and Alan Carroll helped Caulry  keep in touch with the visitors and eke out a hard-earned draw on a final scoreline of Caulry 3-7 Coralstown-Kinnegad 0-16.

All-County League  Division 2
Caulry 8-11 CFCW 0-3
Caulry maintained their drive for promotion to Division 1 with a resounding victory over their Intermediate Championship Final conquerors last year in a Div 2 league game played in the Park last Sunday morning. This game was all but over at half-time with Caulry who played against the strong wind and rain in the first half going in at the interval leading on a scoreline of 4-7 to 0-3 helped by goals from Peter Smyth, David Brookes, Alan Rigney and Damien Dolan (inset). With the wind at their backs the second half proved a stroll in the park for Caulry as four more goals were netted compliments of Peter Smyth, Andy O'Sullivan, Alan Carroll and Alan Daly and with CFCW failing to raise a flag.

Team & Scorers : Joe Mc Mahon, Keith Mc Menamin, Gary Flanagan, Jack O'Kelly-Lynch, Damien Dolan (1-1), Michael Mc Mahon, Ernie Buckley (0-1), Alan Fitzpatrick, John Maguire (0-1), Eoghan Grennan (0-2), Alan Rigney (1-2), Johnny Dolan (0-1), David Brookes (1-0), Peter Smyth 2-3 (2f), Andy O'Sullivan (1-0).

Under 14s
On Saturday last Caulry travelled to Castletown, Co Meath to take part in a Feile Blitz. Three other teams were involved in the blitz and first up for Caulry were Wicklow team Knockananna. This was a tough opener for the Caulry lads and they were slow to get going, giving the opposition a significant lead, however the Caulry lads eventually got into their rhythm and went in two points behind at the break, 3-04 to 3-02 .Upon resumption both teams upped their game and exchanged some excellent scores but on the final whistle Knockananna edged it by the minimum of margins on a score line of 6-05 to 6-04.

Next up for Caulry was the local team of Castletown. Once again two evenly matched teams went to battle. The first half was a goal fest with Castletown ahead at the break, 5-01 to 4-03. In the second half Caulry tightened up their defence only conceding one point, whilst scoring 2-02 and justifiably coming out on top at the final whistle.

The final game for Caulry was against Meath team Moynalty. This was a close affair with both teams level at the break, and Caulry only pulling away in the final five minutes with a brace of goals sealing a good win on a score line of 3-05 to 1-06.

This was a great day for the Caulry lads, with all players getting good game time and gelling well together.


Marita Stone Memorial Cup Final
The 4th and 5th class boys from An Grianan Mount Temple National School travelled to Rosemount for the final of The Marita Stone Memorial Cup final on Monday week last June 24th. For the third year in a row they unfortunately suffered defeat to old rivals Tang. On the evening the Tang boys were the better all round team, with our lads never reaching their through potential despite some gallant displays. James Clavin gave a brilliant display in goals and shows fantastic aptitude for the position. Roan Sweeney was heroic in midfield, while Thomas Dunning, Tom Cloonan and Alan Malynn took the game to their opponents at every opportunity and a amassed a tally of 5-9 which would win most games. 
Final score: Tang 7-11 An Grianan 5-9
Panel: James Clavin, Charlie Malone, Daniel Buckley, Colm Shortall, Rory Mullins, Conor Bracken, Roan Sweeney, Thomas Dunning (capt) Tom Cloonan, Alan Malynn, Ruairi Casey, Jamie Conlon, Lee Roy Coughlan, Conor McKnight, Oisin Murphy, Padraig Murphy, Sean Malone, Josh Jocker.
