Under 14 League Division 1

Caulry 5-3

Athlone 2-11

Caulry went to Pairc Chiarian Athlone on Thursday evening last for their final league match and came away with a one point victory after an absorbing contest. On a beautiful sunny evening, the good sized attendance were treated to a very entertaining and skilful game of football which is by now customary when these two footballing sides meet. The game could be divided into almost four equal quarters in that, Caulry were on top in the first and last, with the town side best in the middle. Despite being on top from the start, Caulry failed to put their superiority on the score board and gradually the home side grew into the game with some fine points, while a looped goal from Adam Donoghue and a well taken point by Zach Nolan were all Caulry had to show for their efforts as they trailed 1-5 to 1-1 at the interval. Athlone continued to have the upper hand on territory on the changeover despite playing against the breeze and extended their lead to six points. Thomas Dunning then burst through the defence to crash the ball high into the net, and the same player repeated his burst minutes later, and this time Roan Sweeney put an opportunist finish by fisting to the net. Athlone soon replied with a goal and a point. Caulry needed a response and again Thomas Dunning supplied it, this time cutting in from the opposite side to finish high in the net. Zach Nolan followed with an inspirational point, before the blues tacked on more points to go three up. However, Roan Sweeney provided another classy finish to the net to level matters once again. Both teams then went in search of the winner as play swung from end to end. A great move out of defence by the men in red finished with a great long range point by young Alan Malynn. A case of the right man in the right place. However, the drama was not yet over and Athlone got through for a one on one with our goalkeeper, but James Clavin produced a fantastic diving save to seal victory in heroic fashion. Well done to both teams with many fine performances throughout the field. James Clavin made a number of fine saves, while Glen Carolan, Daniel Buckley were defiant and heroic in defensive duties, Zach Nolan, Jamie Conlon got through an amount of work, while the well taken goals were timely and vital, it was the second half introduction of Tom Cloonan and Alan Malynn that finally gave our lads the vital edge. It was also good to have Adam Donoghue back on the Gaelic field and hopefully the team can now concentrate on preparing for a good championship campaign.

On the resumption, Athlone, aided with the wind, scored an unanswered 1-5. A point and a goal, from a penalty, from Robbie Kenny and Alan Fitzpatrick respectively narrowed the gap to seven points.
