Castleconnor got their first win of the year in this clash on Friday evening at Corballa. Managers Frank Barrett and Gerry Curley had a strong panel to call on with a full subs bench.

We got off to a good start with a goal from Paul Sweeney after clever play from a quick free from Eoin Flynn and Stevie Curley. This was followed by two points before a two goal salvo in a minute from Patrick Cleary and Eoin Flynn pushed us into a commanding lead which we maintained till the halftime break with the score of 3-3 v 0-3.

Half time substitute Ciarán "Doogie" Kilcullen scored two monster points after coming on with other points from Paul Sweeney, Eoin Flynn, Darragh Gilmartin, John Cullenand another from Doogie (watch out Tap!!)  after strong play from Kieran Naughton, Ronan Carrabine and Eoin Kent in defence. Shane Feeney, aka the Stork came close on two occasions to goaling but Junior healy finally scored with a nice shot to the corner of the net.

This was a great team performance with another of debutants in Arthur Beardshall, Conor Judge and Eoin Kent.
