Under 14 League Division 1

Caulry 6-12

Garrycastle 1-4

On Monday week last, May 25th, Caulry hosted Garrycastle, who proved to be very tough opposition in an evenly contested first half, were intelligent and uncomprising defending from Glenn Carolan, Conor McKnight and Josh Jocker kept the scoreline down to 1-4 to 1-3 in our favour at the half time break. However on the changeover, Thomas Dunning and Luke Hamilton controlled the play, and with Rory Mullins and Daniel Buckley providing a platform for endless attacking forays, the Garrycastle defence eventually wilted under the continuous onslaught, as Jamie Conlon, Olan Healy and Roan Sweeney produced some exceptional finishes to run out comfortable winners, against a gallant Garrycastle side who tried valiantly to the end with some good passages of football of their own.

Caulry 2-6

Kilbeggan/St Josephs 3-8

On the following Thursday, Kilbeggan/St Josephs were the visitors for this latest Under 14 League fixture. On a very blustery and windy evening for football, both sides served up an excellent entertaining game, making light of the conditions. Playing with the considerable benefit of the elements in the opening period, Caulry produced some excellent combined free flowing football to lead by eight points at the break. Some of the point scoring and goals were top drawer as our lads carried on from where they left off in the previous match. In the early stages on the change of ends, we continued to put together well worked moves, but with wind gale rising against us, we found it difficult to maintain possession against a more physical opposition and eventually this told, as the combination side got through for some late scores to snatch victory with their more direct style. For Caulry, Glenn Carolan give an inspirational full back display, clearing his lines time and again with high fielding and timely bursts up the field. Colm Shortall and Luke Hamilton also produced very efficient defensive displays. Thomas Dunning, Ciaran Gaynor and Roan Sweeney combined to create much of the better attaching moves of the evening. However, it was the diminutive and dynamic Olan Healy who stole the show, with a superb one-one from the half forward position, he proceeded to revert to defence for the second period where his all action style snuffed out many an attack in addition to launching some for his own team. Well done to the Caulry lads on producing some excellent football and if we can produce on a more consistent basis will be a match for any one.

Junior Championship
Caulry 0-7
Garrycastle 1-14
A much depleted Caulry Junior side went down by ten points to Garrycastle in their first round of this year’s Junior Championship on Friday evening last.
Despite opening the scoring tally with a fine point from Hugh Allen, Caulry never seemed to push on. Garrycastle, aided with a strong breeze, went in at the break with a comfortable ten point lead on a scoreline of 0-12 to 0-2.
Alan Carroll narrowed the margin with a well-taken point on the resumption. However, the all important score came in the 39th minute as Garrycastle hit the back of the Caulry net. Late points from Stephen Woods and Nicky Killane meant the game finished on a scoreline of 1-14 to 0-7.

Senior Championship
Caulry 2-7
Coralstown/Kinnegad 0-13
Caulry had to settle for a draw in their opening game of this year’s Senior Championship in Cusack Park on Saturday evening last.
Caulry hit the ground running and were 1-1 to 0-2 after ten minutes. A fisted goal from Paddy Sleator put four points between the sides on the 18th minute. Both teams traded points and at the interval the scoreboard read 2-3 to 0-5.
On the resumption, our lads seemed to sit back and allow the opposition back into the contest as Coralstown/Kinnegad  scored three points in quick succession. David Brookes kicked the next point for Caulry, which was shortly followed by a point from Coralstown/Kinnegad.  The match continued on a point-for-point basis, with Conor McCormack scoring for Caulry. On the 56th minute, Caulry stretched their lead to two points with a fine point from Eoghan Grennan and it looked as though victory was in sight for our lads. However, Coralstown/Kinnegad scored two late points. Caulry were very unlucky as a late attempt to seal the victory hit the crossbar and was eventually kicked wide. The scoreboard read 2-7 to 0-13 on the final whistle.
