On Saturday evening the senior team hosted Easkey in Bonniconlon in the league. Easkey started the better in the opening few minutes scoring the first 2 points of the game but Castleconnor soon found form with good work from the half forward line and early ball in to the inside line was staring to cause trouble for the Easkey back line. The teams exchanged points with some good scores from Brian Howley and Matt Cullen.

A long ball from Eamon Cawley found Stephen Curley who turned his man and stuck the ball in the Easkey net soon after. Easkey replied with a goal of their own after a mix up in the hosts square and there was only one point in it at the break, 1-6 to 1-5 to Castleconnor.

In the second half again the visitors started well once again opening the scoring and leveling the game. But once again Castleconnor battled back better than ever racing into a 4 point lead with frees from Kevin Langan and scores from Cullen and Curley.

Easkey fought back once more and scored another goal to keep them in the contest. This blow had no affect on the Castleconnor preformance, if anything it spurred them on again in creasing the lead with a superbly worked goal with a neat finish by Cullen.

Final Score Castleconnor 2-13 v 2-8 Easkey. Many thanks to Bonniconlon GAA for the use of their wonderful facilities. Next up is Intermediate championship versus St. John's in two weeks time.
