Played in Corballa on Thursday evening.

Easkey had the hill and the wind in the first half and scored 1-1 for the half due to great work from the back line. Castleconnor forwards had it tough due to constant running from the visitors defence and the underfoot conditions were very poor which added to the standard of the game.

At the interval it was 1-1 to 0-7 in favour of the home side.

In the second period Kevin Langan was introduced and made a huge difference around the middle. The final score ended up 2-3 to 9 with neither team capitalizing with the wind or hill.

Stand out players were Eamonn Cawley who kept us in touch with vital points and Matthew Cullen and Keith Foody showed well when introduced, along with Eoin Flynn and Eoin Kent.
Team: Richie McGloughlin, Brendan Howey, Patrick McGuinness, Tom Cawley, Jason Earlis, Keith Earlis, Eoin Kent, Paul Kilcullen, Pat Naughton, Ciaran Kilcullen, Eamon Cawley, Eoin Flynn, Stephen Curley, Brian Howley, Niall Judge.
