The minor team played Coolera/Strandhill in their semi final.
In the first few minutes Coolera scored 1-1 and the supporters thought our boys were up against it. But then Castleconnor sparked into life and scored 2 points from Sean Carrabine and Matthew Cullen.

Coolera were then reduced to 12 men (13 a side) and that sealed their fate. A goal from Matthew and further points from Matthew, Sean, Jason Earlis, Jack O'Hora and Keith Foody. Castleconnor went in with a comfortable 10 point lead, 1-11 to 1-1.
The second half started with two points for Coolera but that was their last score. Enda Kilcullen came on for Stephen Durkan and Lewis Beardshall came on for as the management looked to give everyone a run. After more points from Micheal Cahill, Matthew, Jack and Sean the goals began. First Jack then Cian Barrins.

After Jack's second goal he was taken off and Paul Flynn was introduced. At the same time Odhran Quinn came on for Straight away he scored a goal. Lewis scored another goal to finish it. A comprehensive victory to see the lads through to the final against St. John's next Thursday. 6-16 to 1-3
