However, the opposition worked hard and rattled the back of the Caulry net on the 12th minute. Points from Flanagan, Fitzpatrick and Ernie Buckley put Caulry back in front by the quarter hour mark. Gavin Byrne worked hard and found Stephen Woods who pointed late in the half to leave two points between the sides at the interval.
On the resumption, Castledaly battled hard and found the back of the Caulry net for a second time. The teams traded scores, with Stephen Connolly on target for the homeside. Further points from Fitzpatrick and Flanagan kept the scoreboard ticking over. Castledaly pulled back one from a free, which was shortly followed by another Connolly point.

Caulry 1-7
The Downs 0-9
Caulry played host to The Downs in the opening round of this year’s Feis Cup on Saturday evening last and were lucky to escape with the win on a scoreline of 1-7 to 0-9.
Caulry hit the ground running with a superb point from Robbie Hickey. The Downs soon found their feet with two quick points. The match went on a point-for-point basis with Alan Fitzpatrick, Conor McCormack and Robbie Kenny on target for the homeside. Some good fielding from Fitzpatrick enabled McCormack to tap over another point to leave the scoreboard reading 0-5 to 0-4 at halftime.
The opposition raced out of the tracks in the second half with two points in quick succession. A pointed-free from McCormack levelled proceedings on the 7th minute. A great intercept from Fitzpatrick and a superb pass from Sean Doyle found Mark Fitzpatrick who rattled the opposition’s net. However, this lead was short lived as The Downs worked hard tapping over a brace of points. Our lads dug deep and a point from Hickey put Caulry back in front on the 25th minute. The defence held strong, with Declan Donohoe and Stephen Brookes valiant in their endeavours, as Caulry ran out winners on the narrowest of margins.

Under 16 League Division 1
Caulry 5-7
Coralstown-Kinnegad 4-10
On Sunday evening last Caulry were in Kinnegad for this latest Under 16 football league match. This was a real thriller played in brilliant sunshine before a good sized crowd. Despite enjoying territorial advantage in the early exchanges the home side fail to score and Caulry capitalized to go 2-1 to no score ahead after 13 minutes thanks to two goals from Matthew Nally, one a penalty and a great long range effort from Darcy Lawless. However, Coralstown-Kinnegad soon found their range and led 2-4 to 2-4 at the break.
The second period continued end to end at breath taking pace and some great scoring for both teams. Coming to the final moments the home side regained a one point lead and looked to have snatched the league points. However, our lads once again showed their character and composure to work the ball into the left corner, where Thomas Dunning kicked a deserved equalising point over his left shoulder deep in injury time. For Caulry, James Clavin made a variety of outstanding saves to keep his side in the contest. Jack Sheehan, Eoin Shortall and Adam Mullins were heroic in defence, Dylan Lowry and Zach Nolan, making a welcome return after injury, also stuck to their task against tricky opponents. Colin Murphy, Liam Doyle, Darcy Lawless played their hearts in the sweltering heat. However, once again when class was needed, it was five goal Matthew Nally who provided it.
A fair result on the balance of play and the league action now takes a break until June 27th to allow, junior cert players concentrate on their exams.
Team & Scorers; James Clavin, Jack Sheehan, Eoin Shortall, Adam Mullins, Glen Carolan, Dylan Lowry, Zach Nolan, Colin Murphy (0-2), Liam Doyle (0-2), Paddy McHugh, Thomas Dunning (0-1), Luck Hamilton, Adam Donoghue (0-1), Darcy Lawless (0-1), Matthew Nally (5-0), Eugene Costello, Benito Masseo, Ciaran Geoghegan.
