U16 Championship
Caulry 4-10
Clann Braoinain 3-7
Our U16s got off to a good start in their championship campaign on Monday evening last when they hosted Clann Braoinain for their opening game.
Our lads raced out of the tracks after a good kickout from Ruiari Casey was brilliantly worked up the field and slotted into the back of the opposition’s net on the 1st minute. Olan Healy then raced up the field and put his name on the scoresheet with his fisted effort. The two Buckleys combined well as Luke pointed to stretch Caulry’s lead. Clann Braoinain got off the mark on the 5th minute with a fine point from play. Colm Shortall impressed in defence as some good work from Jamie Conlon and Luke Buckley enabled Carey to add to the scoring tally. A fine pass from Buckley then found Conlon who side-stepped the keeper and rattled the Clann Braoinain net on the 11th minute. However, the opposition dug deep, responding with a quick 1-1 to reduce the deficit to four. Senan Baker fielded the ball well as Alex Grinko made his impact as he registered Caulry’s third goal of the evening. Healy intercepted the ball well in the backline and rallied up the field adding another goal on the 20th minute. The opposition responded with another quick 1-1. However, a late converted-free from Alan Malynn saw Caulry lead 4-4 to 2-3 at halftime.
Malynn kicked the first score of the second half two minutes after the resumption of play. Despite a display a great combined teamwork, our boys were unlucky to miss a goal opportunity on the 33rd minute. A goal for the opposition chipped away at the Caulry lead. However, Malynn responded well by raising two white flags of his own. The teams then exchanged scores with Conlon adding one for Caulry after a good pass from Josh Jocher. Casey cleared his goal-line well as two fine scores from Malynn stretched Caulry’s lead. However, the opposition never hung their heads as they kicked three fine scores late in the game. A brace of saves from Casey ensured Caulry ran out winners on a scoreline of 4-10 to 3-7.
Team & Scorers: Ruiari Casey, Leroy Coughlan, Sean Murphy, Ciaran Gaynor, Colm Shortall, Olan Healy (1-1), Josh Jocher, Senan Baker, Rory Mullins, Jamie Conlon (1-1), Luke Buckley (0-1), Alan Malynn (0-6, 3f), James Buckley, James Carey (1-1), Alex Grinko (1-0)

Division 2 ACFL
Caulry 4-7
Ballynacargy 4-13
Our lads wrapped up their Division 2 ACFL campaign when they played host to Ballynacargy on a sunny Tuesday evening last.
Ballynacargy burst out of the tracks with a well-taken goal on the 2nd minute. Sean Clinton opened Caulry’s scoring tally soon after with a fine point from play. The game went on a point for point basis with Ben Kenny on target for Caulry. Ballynacargy put themselves in the driving seat as they rattled the back of the Caulry net for a second time on the 11th minute. However, our lads responded well after the Clinton brothers combined allowing Neil to draw one back. The teams then exchanged frees. A good pass from Kenny found Cialan Dollard who point on the 14th minute. Damien Dolan then made a superb run up the field and riffled the back of the Ballynacargy net. However, our lads failed to lift their performance, missing some scoring chances as the opposition kicked a trio of points. Conor Dolan then raised the green flag late in the half to leave the narrowest of margins between the sides at the interval.
On the resumption, Ballynacargy began to push on adding an unanswered 1-4 inside the first 10 minutes. Alan Daly drew one back by the end of the third quarter. However, this was soon followed by another Ballynacargy point. Neil Clinton recycled the ball well enabling Daly to hit the back of the Ballynacargy net on the 53rd minute. Some good work from Dollard and Murphy then set Daly up for his second goal of the evening. Dolan defended well as a converted-free from Murphy left just two between the sides. However, Ballynacargy dug deep and secured their win with late scores leaving Caulry trail 4-13 to 4-7 at the fulltime whistle.
This defeat means our lads finish on 8 points and secure their Division 2 ACFL status for next year.

Good combined teamwork from Darren Browne and Doyle allowed Matthew Nally to add a quick 1-1 to the scoring tally. The opposition then left just one point between the sides as the converted a penalty on the 8th minute. However, this was soon followed by a Caulry goal from Colin Murphy after a superb attack from Glen Carolan.

Milmore Gaels got off to a good start and were 1-2 up before Caulry registered their first score of the game. This coming from Conor Hynes who sent the ball to the back of the Milmore Gaels net after a good pass from Tiarnan O’Donovan.
