Without the unavailable Paul Flynn and Odhrán Quinn to school commitments and Danny O'Hora to injury, our minor team faced a tough proposition in the form of Coolera/Strandhill on Thursday evening in Scarden.

In what was the first of hopefully many of the clubs finals this year, Castleconnor rolled into a 1-2 to no score lead after a well taken Luke Munnelly goal.
Coolera though, eventaully found their feet and struck a goal of their own. At the break, Castleconnor led by 1-6 to 1-2.

Coolera started strong in the second half and pulled the gap back to two points but a late surge of quality scores from Seán Carrabine, Jack O'Hora and Micheál Cahill saw Castleconnor secure a deserved five point victory.

A strong defensive display was at the heart of this victory limiting Coolera to six scores. Exceptional displays noted from Cian Barrins and James Boland.

Team: Kenneth Healy, Enda Kilcullen, Stephen Durkan, James Boland, Cian Barrins, Benny Foody, Jack O'Hora (Captain), Seán Carrabine, Micheál Cahill, Lewis Beardshall, Elliot Beardshall, Luke Munnelly, Niall Judge

Everyone at the club would like to congratulate the lads on their efforts so far this year and wish them well in the Championship.
Many thanks also to the management of Kieran O'Hora, Mark Carr and Niall Judge.
