Senior Championship
Caulry 0-8
Castledaly 3-10
Caulry bowed out of this year’s Senior Championship on Friday last in Tang with an eleven point defeat to a strong Castledaly side.
Caulry were first to get off the mark with a pointed-free from Eoin Fox on the 2nd minute. Great defending from Kevin Maguire in the opening minutes and a brilliant pass from Gary Flanagan found Robbie Hickey who pointed on the 5th minute. This was soon followed by a point from David Brookes. Castledaly hit the back of the Caulry net on the 9th minute to make it level pegging. A pointed-free from Brookes and a point from Hickey left two points between the sides half way through the first half. An unanswered four points, three from frees, left Caulry trailing 1-4 to 0-5 at the interval.
A pointed-free and a quick goal on the resumption meant Castledaly raced into a six point lead. The teams traded scores with John Maguire and Peter Smyth scoring for Caulry. The opposition rattled the back of the Caulry net for a third time on the 46th minute. A pointed-free from Smyth and late Castledaly points secured the opposition the win, on a scoreline of 3-10 to 0-8.
This defeat means Caulry finish with three points to secure their place in the Senior Championship for 2016.

Under 14 Championship Division 2

Caulry 10-9

Moate 2-12                                              

Hogan Park Moate was the venue for this latest Under 14 Championship fixture on Thursday evening last, where our lads eventually came away with a comprehensive victory. However, the final scoreline does not do justice to a very competitive match, where the greater all round strength of panel and ability of the Caulry boys proved decisive and kept the rather large crowd for this age group entertained throughout. Playing with the aid of the stiff breeze in the opening half, the men in red built up a good early lead, before being rocked by two goals before the break. The 4-5 to 2-5 interval margin looked precarious as momentum and wind seemed to be with the Lilywhites. However, the half time talk settled Caulry. They upped their intensity and speed of ball movement on the changeover and went ‘goal hungry’ as they dominated their opponents who fought valiantly against the onslaught. This was a good all round display by Caulry particulary in the second period, where Glen Carolan, Zach Nolan and Daniel Buckley were very much to the fore in defence and attaching sense. James Carey won a lot of possession in the centre and Olan Healy linked play very effectively. Jamie Conlon and Thomas Dunning were the fulcrum for a lot of the good attacking play with unselfish running and passing ability. Adam Donoghue, despite being double and treble teamed, Alan Malynn and the returning Luke Buckley were eager and effective finishers. Shane Lawless once again proved his worth both in a defence and attacking sense. However, undoubtly the star of the game was Rory Mullins. Not only did he terrorise the Moate defence with his ability to both take and make scores, but he also dropped back into defence to turn over numerous ball for his team, in a real tour de force all round display.

Team: James Clavin, Ciaran Gaynor, Glenn Carolan (1-0), Luke Hamilton, Colm Shortall, Zach Nolan, Daniel Buckley, Olan Healy (1-1), James Carey (1-0), Jamie Conlon, Thomas Dunning (2-1), Josh Jocher, Alan Malynn (1-1), Rory Mullins (3-1), Adam Donoghue (0-4), Luke Buckley (1-0), Shane Lawless (0-1), Shane Hynes, Sean Malone, Ruairi Casey, Leroy Coughlan


Under 16 Championship

Caulry 2-13

St Mary’s Rochfortsbridge 6-11

St Mary’s Rochfortsbridge were the visitors for this first round Under 16 championship on Monday week last. The game was well contested throughout, with some excellent passages of football from both sides. Caulry started the brighter with some lovely points but two goals just before half time, gave the visitors the initiative that they subsequently would not relinquish and go in leading 3-5 to 0-

7. However as they game went on the exertions of many Caulry players in other matches over the weekend began to tell, and a well drilled Rochfortsbridge team ran out comfortable and worthy winners. Nevertheless, there was much to admire in the displays of many of the Caulry players, with particular mention in the quality and whole hearted endeavours of Adam Mullins, Eoin Shortall, Sean Fox, Colin Murphy, Neil Clinton and Darcy Lawless.

Team: Darren Browne, Adam Mullins, Jack Sheehan, Eoin Shortall, Dylan Lowry, Sean Fox (0-1), Sean Woods, Colin Murphy (1-4), Neil Clinton (1-0), Darcy Lawless (0-3), Cillian Dollard, Shane Cleary, Matthew Nally (0-1), Lee Guinan, Liam Malynn (0-4), Sam Nolan, Eugene Costello, Kevin Donohoe
