Under 16 League Division 1
Caulry 1-10
Athlone 0-10
Caulry travelled to Pairc Chiaran, Athlone on Monday last, July 11, knowing that victory would see them leapfrog over the Shannonsiders at the top of the league table. With much at stake, this turned out to be another thrilling affair in tandem with previous meetings between these sides in recent years. The game was end to end, played at a furious pace throughout, with no quarter given or taken in a sporting manner, which highlighted all that is best in gaelic football from two evenly matched sides. Both goalkeepers produced tremendous saves and defences help sway in the first half to leave the half time score at four points apiece.
The pace and work rate continued on the resumption of play and it was going to take something special to separate two such evenly matched teams. As in the previous match, Sean Fox produced such a moment. Soloing from inside his own half of the field, he somehow brushed aside a number of challenges to score a truly inspiration point. From the resulting kick-out Neil Clinton fielded and as he moved forward, he produced the ultimate game changer by sending a perfectly flighted effort to land in the top right hand corner of the Athlone net. The initiative now appeared firmly with our lads, however, Athlone responded with two points. The rest of the match continued point for point as play swung back and forth, but with keeper, James Clavin and his full back line of Jack Sheehan, Eoin Shortall and Adam Mullins, putting their bodies on the line, to produce heroic blocks and goal line clearances, the Athlone boys could not get the goal that they sought to save the match. This was another excellent performance from all players on duty with Dylan Lowry and Zach Nolan equally defensively defiant, and an exceptional performance from Darren Browne in the half back line. Darren together with Colin Murphy, Neil Clinton, Sean Fox and Thomas Dunning gave Caulry a decided advantage in the middle third and the quality and quantity of their high fielding was sight to behold for all GAA tradionalists. In attack, Paddy McHugh, having his best ever game, and Glenn Carolan covered every blade of grass in the quest for victory. Matthew Nally despite being subject to extra special attention with up to three or four markers at a time was the fulcrum for many scores, with Adam Donoghue in particular, being razor sharp in benefiting from this.
