The under 16 team recorded a 3-12 to 2-10 win over visitors Tourlestrane in Corballa on St. Patrick's day. The teams exchanged scores in the opening period and a late rally from Tourlestrane before the interval seen them trail by 1-6 to 1-5 at the break.

Playing with the elements in the second half Castleconnor failed to use this advantage and it was the visitors who were on top for the third quarter of this exciting encounter. Our lads eventually found their way again and kicked some good scores from the boot of Sean Carrabine and Micheal Cahill.

With a few minutes remaining Tourlestrane had another late rally bringing Castleconnor's dominance on the scoreboard to just three points. A goal mouth scramble in our half was cleared by the defence after an excellent tackle by Paul Flynn in the dying moments which resulted in two further late points for the home side. A topsy turvey encounter no doubt but the game had all the elements of excitement, quality, hard work and good sportsmanship.

Final score in Corballa was Castleconnor 3-12 to 2-10 Tourlestrane. Next up is Enniscrone/Kilglass next weekend.

Castleconnor: Kenneth Flynn, Fergal Boland, James Boland, Brendan Foody, Danny O'Hora Brian Durkan, Sean Carrabine, Paul Flynn, Odhran Quinn, Micheal Cahill, Daire Barrins, Ronan Coggins, Brian Mahony, Niall Judge, Elliot Beardshaw.
