Feis Cup Round 2
Caulry 3-9
Mullingar Shamrocks 2-6
Caulry and Mullingar Shamrocks served up an exciting encounter in the local park on Tuesday last for their latest Feis Cup fixture.
Caulry were first off the mark with a pointed-free from Robbie Hickey. Mullingar Shamrocks soon followed suit on the 5th minute. Hickey tapped over another free to keep Caulry in front. However, Shamrocks rattled the back of the Caulry net on the 10th minute from a penalty. The teams traded scores with Hickey on target for the homeside. Some good play by Eoin Fox in the middle of the field and a superb pass from Hickey enabled Stephen Brookes to send the ball to the back of the opposition’s net. Sean Clinton defended well as Hickey and Brookes kicked over a brace of points to leave Caulry leading 1-7 to 1-2 at the interval.
On the resumption, Shamrocks worked hard and kicked two points in quick succession. Down to 14 men, our lads dug deep with our defence holding strong. A point from Ernie Buckley on the 8th minute kept the scoreboard ticking over. A well-taken goal from Fox put seven points between the sides. Michael Carroll brought off a good save in goals. The teams traded scores with Hickey adding to the scoring tally. Some good combined teamwork from Hickey and Stephen Connolly found David Brookes who hit the back of the Mullingar net on the 27th minute. A late goal for Shamrocks left the scoreboard reading 3-9 to 2-6 at the fulltime whistle.

Division 4 ACFL
Caulry 0-11
St. Pauls 2-8
Caulry suffered a defeat in their latest round of Division 4 ACFL fixtures when they played host St. Pauls on Friday evening last.
Our lads were first off the mark with a point from Sean Clinton. Michael Carroll brought off a good save in goals as Jack O’Kelly Lynch defended well in the early stages of the game. Some superb fielding from Stephen Connolly and a good pass from Ernie Buckley found Alan Daly who kicked the next two scores of the game. However, the opposition soon found their feet with a point from play on the 17th minute. St. Pauls worked hard and scored 1-3 in quick succession to leave Caulry trailing 1-4 to 0-3 at the interval.
On the resumption, our lads fought hard with a well-taken point from Clinton inside the opening 60 seconds. Stephen Woods added to the scoring tally on the 3rd minute. A point from Daly reduced the deficit. However, the St. Pauls’ lads worked tirelessly and pointed to stretch their lead. The opposition then rattled the back of the Caulry net for a second time on the 11th minute to leave five points the margin. The teams traded scores with Daly and Gavin Byrne on target for the homeside. Charlie Parker defended well late in the half as Daly scored 0-3 to leave the scoreboard reading 2-8 to 0-11 at the fulltime whistle.

Under 16 League Division 1
Caulry 4-11
St Loman’s Mullingar 1-5
Caulry put in a good performance to overcome visitors and table topping St Loman’s Mullingar on Monday last. Key to this were well worked early goals from Matthew Nally and Adam Donoghue. Just as St Loman’s appeared to be getting back in the contest  with an unanswered 1-2, they suffered a severe physiological blow. Fielding in the centre of the field, Sean Fox took off on a solo run, and as the visitors defence opened up like the ‘proverbial red sea’ he blasted an unstoppable shot high into the net for a real goal of the season candidate and leaving the half-time score reading 3-6 to 1-2 in his sides favour.
Any hopes the men in blue had of mounting a comeback were quashed some five minutes after the resumption of play. A superbly flighted ball from Thomas Dunning took out several defenders for Matthew Nally to field and finish with aplomb low to the net. Caulry continued in control for the remainder of the match in what was a great team performance from all players who played on the night. Usually encounters in the past between these sides are close affairs and no doubt should they meet later in the year, this will surely be the case.
Team & Scorers: James Clavin, Jack Sheehan, Eoin Shortall, Adam Mullins, Darren Browne (0-2), Dylan Lowry, Daniel Buckley, Colin Murphy (0-1), Neil Clinton, Matthew Nally (2-0), Adam Donoghue (1-2), Sean Fox (1-2), Thomas Dunning (0-1), Paddy McHugh (0-2), Liam Doyle (0-1), Glen Carolan, Ciarian Geoghegan.
Footnote: Well done to Liam Doyle, who showed great commitment and admiral pain threshold to play in the above match, unaware that he had a broken hand knuckle which was only confirmed diagnosed later that week.
