Castleconnor played Coolaney Mullinabreena in the first round of this years Intermediate championship on Saturday evening in Tourlestrane. The conditions were almost perfect except for the midges who had a great evening as did our opposition. We were totally outplayed in the front third of the field with midfield proabably winning their battle.
The team lost the influential Michael Langan in the first minute through injury. Alan cawley equalised with a great point after seven minutes from the left. Coolaney then got through for 2 quick goals from long balls in over the defences heads. After 20 mins, the score was 3-3 v 0-2  with Kevin Langan our other point scorer. At half time it was 3-6 v 0-2
The game was long over before the final whistle, however we started with a bit more bite but two goal chances went a begging and we were defeated heavily 5-14 v 0-6.
