U15 Championship Round 3
Caulry 1-11
Tubberclair 2-6
Our U15 boys made it three wins from three when they made the journey to Tubberclair on a wet Monday evening last for their latest championship fixture.
The sides struggled to grasp conditions in the opening minutes of the game with some attempts going astray before Tubberclair opened the scoring tally with a point from play. Oisin Shortall got Caulry off the mark a few minutes later. Aaron Murphy then rattled the back of the Tubberclair net to launch Caulry into the lead. The homeside’s goalie brought off a good save as Murphy and Tiarnan O’Donovan settled for points to steady the ship. A pointed-free from Andrew Stuart Trainor preceded Tubberclair’s first goal of the game which left the scoreboard reading 1-7 to 1-4 at the break.
Tubberclair took the lead early in the second half after converting a penalty. However, the Caulry lads never panicked with a cross-ball from Cormac Murphy being helped over the bar by Aindriu Lynam. Aaron Murphy and Stuart Trainor added the next two points of the game to put Caulry two points clear. Another free from Stuart Trainor was sandwiched between two Tubberclair points. Lynam then put over an impressive score on the 47th minute despite being closely marked. The game went on a point-for-point basis with scores from Brendan McCormack and Dean Byrne helping to keep the opposition at arm’s length. In the closing minutes of the game, Tubberclair pressed hard, launching in a number of unsuccessful attacks and Max O’Sullivan must be accredited for his vital save late in the game which ensured Caulry kept their lead in-tact and ran out winners on a scoreline of 1-11 to 2-6.
Team & Scorers: Max O’Sullivan, Sean Donnelly, Eoin Murphy, Darragh Shortall, Cormac Murphy, Tadgh Baker, David Gaynor, Tiarnan O’Donovan (0-1), Oisin Shortall (0-1), Cody Parker, Andrew Stuart Trainor (0-3, 3f), Brendan McCormack (0-1), Aindriu Lynam (0-2), Aaron Murphy (1-2), Conor Hynes

U17 Championship Round 3
Caulry 2-12
Tyrrellspass 1-4
Our U17 lads notched up their third consecutive win in their latest U17 championship game in the park on a stormy Wednesday evening last when they hosted Tyrrellspass.
Tyrrellspass were first to get motoring with two points early in the game. Alan Malynn then opened our scoring tally on the 9th minute as he converted a straight-forward free. A number of missed chances ensued for both sides, with both the Caulry and Tyrrellspass goalies bringing off fine saves before Shane Lawless levelled proceedings on the 14th minute. Our lads then put their stamp on the game with a well-taken goal from Senan Baker after a good intercept from James Buckley. Three quick-fire points from Malynn stretched our lead to six. However, Tyrrellspass soon regained initiative, riffling the ball to the back of the Caulry net on the 27th minute. A point apiece for the sides saw Caulry lead 1-6 to 1-3 at the halftime whistle.
The second half followed in much the same vein with a number of scores going astray as a point from Andrew Stuart Trainor on the 36th minute opened the second half tally of scores. Despite playing into the storm, it was the Caulry forward who impressed most in the second half with Malynn accounting for the next three points of the game after some good play out field from Tom Cloonan and Alan Lynam. Malynn then showed great vision on the 42nd minute as he chipped the keeper and registered Caulry’s second goal of the game. Baker pointed either side of Tyrrellspass’ only score of the second half, this a ‘45’ on the 52nd minute. Ultimately, the Caulry lads never looked in doubt in the second half as they ran out winners with eleven points to spare.
Team & Scorers: Ruairi Casey, Harry Stuart Trainor, Tom Cloonan, Adam Doyle, Tadgh Baker, Sean Murphy, Alan Lynam, Senan Baker (1-2), Conor Paul, Aaron Murray, Shane Lawless (0-2), James Buckley, Paul Hogan, Andrew Stuart Trainor (0-1), Alan Malynn (1-7, 3f)
Subs: Oisin Shortall for Harry Stuart Trainor, Joey Berry for Aaron Murray, Alex Grinko for Conor Paul, Brendan McCormack for James Buckley

U13 Championship Round 3
Caulry 1-11
Tubberclair 1-12
Our U13 boys were defeated by the narrowest of margins when they travelled to Tubberclair on Thursday evening last.
The homeside hit the ground running, launching a high ball into the corner of the Caulry net on the 2nd minute. The teams then shared a point apiece, with Hugo McGowan on target for Caulry. The Tubberclair goalie impressed with his shot-stopping ability as he denied Dean Martin moments later and his side raced up the field and tapped over two fine points from play. Our lads then got a burst of energy with two points from Lee Corcoran slicing the deficit. Eoin McCormack and Kyle Byrne worked hard in the Caulry backline as further points from Simon O’Grady and Corcoran left just one point between the sides. However, Caulry struggled to erase this deficit as three unanswered Tubberclair scores pushed them ahead once again. A great intercept from Michael McSharry was worked up the field and slotted into the back of the Tubberclair net by Aaron Buckley. But the opposition held strong, outscoring Caulry 0-2 to 0-1 to lead by two at the break.
Our lads got off to a promising start in the opening minutes of the second half with scores from Corcoran and Martin levelling the game. Fionn O’Donovan brought off a good save on the 40th minute. However, our boys struggled to notch up scores against a packed Tubberclair defence. The teams shared five points in the closing minutes of the game with O’Grady and Corcoran accounting for two Caulry points as Tubberclair ran out winners with one point to spare.
Team & Scorers: Cian Malone, Kyle Byrne, Michael McSharry, Eoin Lynam, Max Nolan, Eoin McCormack, Luke Nolan, Dean Martin (0-1), Brian Doyle, Adrien Lefebvre, Simon O’Grady (0-2), Jack Killane, Aaron Buckley (1-1), Lee Corcoran (0-6, 4f), Hugo McGowan (0-1)
Subs: Fionn O’Donovan, John Paul, Kyle Nulty

JFC Round 2
Caulry 3-11
Shandonagh 0-7
Our juniors had a comprehensive win over Shandonagh in a fairly one-sided affair in Hogan Park on Friday evening last for their second game of the championship.
Despite a promising start with a point from play, Shandonagh failed to get going as a well-taken goal from Cialan Dollard propelled Caulry into an early lead. A good move via Dollard and Hugh Allen set Adam Donoghue up for a point moments later. Brain Mullarney dealt well with a ball in from Shandonagh which was worked up the field and finished with another point from Donoghue. Our lads then began dominating the mid-field area of the pitch, winning the next three kick-outs, two of which Liam Malynn rounded off with points. Dollard made another surge forward, this time combining with Dylan Lowry who helped the ball into the back of the opposition’s net. Dollard and Donoghue both added points to the scoring tally before Shandonagh got to grips with the game, firing over two late points from play to trail 2-6 to 0-4 at the interval.
The second half followed the same pattern as the first with Caulry dominating throughout. An early converted-free for Shandonagh was soon cancelled out by a point from Olan Healy. The Caulry lads worked well together as a team with some good outfield play setting Hugh Allen and Roan Sweeney up for the next two points of the game. Ernie Buckley dealt well with the high-ball in with Eoin Shortall and Mullarney providing a good comfort blanket in their defensive roles. Shandonagh kicked two scores on the 47th and 48th minutes to reduce the deficit, but it was Caulry who finished the stronger team with Malynn adding 1-2 to leave the scoreboard reading 3-11 to 0-7 at the fulltime whistle.
Team & Scorers: Ernie Buckley, Luke Hamilton, Eoin Shortall, Ciaran Allen, Alan Daly, Brain Mullarney, Dylan Lowry (1-0), Rory Mullins, Conor Dolan, Hugh Allen (0-1), Cialan Dollard (1-1), Olan Healy (0-1), Liam Malynn (1-4, 1f), Roan Sweeney (0-1), Adam Donoghue (0-3)
Subs: Darren Browne for Adam Donoghue, Darren Hynds for Alan Daly, Alan Rigney for Hugh Allen, Ciaran Gaynor for Ciaran Allen, Sylvester Coughlan for Rory Mullins

SFC Round 2
Caulry 0-13
Athlone 1-10
Our senior’s dreams of a quarter-final were squashed on Saturday evening last when they battled it out against Athlone in Tang for their latest championship fixture.
It was the opposition who opened the scoring account after one minute with a point from play before some good defending from Damien Dolan set Conor McCormack up for Caulry’s first point of the game. Athlone got their noses in front again as they pointed on the 6th and 9th minutes. Andy O’Sullivan was fouled inside and Colin Murphy tapped over the ensuing free to narrow the gap once again. A point from play for the opposition was cancelled out by McCormack’s pointed-free on the quarter-hour mark. Cillian Nagle brought off a good save on the 23rd minute as some good play from Neil Clinton enabled McCormack to level the game minutes later. Both sides then missed chances prior to Caulry edging in front after O’Sullivan made the most of the advanced-mark rule, leaving Caulry leading 0-5 to 0-4 at the break.
Our lads burst out of the tracks with a point from McCormack inside the opening 60 seconds after some good work out field from Alan Fitzpatrick. Points from Luke Buckley and Stephen Connolly then had our lads leading by four as the 40th minute elapsed. Athlone drew one back before McCormack’s long-range free restored the four-point gap. Athlone made the most of a costly mistake in the Caulry backline as they split the defence and rattled the back of the net on the 45th minute. The opposition won the ensuing kick-out and drew level with a score from play. The teams traded wides before a good burst forward saw Athlone sneak in front on the 51st minute. Two-converted placed ball from Buckley reversed the scoreline minutes later. However, Athlone were not going to give up that easily as three unanswered points from play put them two points the good once again. O’Sullivan and McCormack’s points kept Caulry’s hopes alive in the closing minutes of the game, but unfortunately for us, the opposition had done enough. A relieved Athlone side welcomed the full-time whistle as this disappointing draw means our lads find themselves  fighting for their senior status for 2021.
Team & Scorers: Cillian Nagle, Damien Dolan, Eoin Fox, Sean Fox, Neil Clinton, Kevin Maguire, Eoghan Grennan, Stephen Connolly (0-1), John Maguire, Alan Fitzpatrick, Conor McCormack (0-6, 2f), Colin Murphy (0-1, 1f), Luke Buckley (0-3, 2f), Paddy Sleator, Andy O’Sullivan (0-2)
Subs: Thomas Dunning for John Maguire, Harry Hughes for Eoghan Grennan, Alan Rigney for Colin Murphy

Senior Championship Fixture
