The intermediate team kept their unbeaten run in the division 2 league with a win by the narrowest of margins over St. Pats on Sunday afternoon in Corballa. 
The visitors controlled much of the opening half but some tough defending and two late scores from the hosts kept the gap at just two points in favour of Pats at the interval.
The second half saw both teams trade points before the away team struck a hammer blow with a goal midway through the half. With the gap at six, Castleconnor appeared to be heading to their first defeat but confusion in the Pats square from an Eamonn Cawley forty-five saw the ball go straight into the net and cut the gap to three points. Single scores were traded again before Kevin McDonnell's power saw him force his way inside the opposition twenty yard line. The ball fell to substitute Jack O'Hora who made no mistake in bringing it level. With the game in injury time, it looked as if the spoils would be shared but a fine Kevin Langan score in the dying embers would seal a single point victory for the home team.
