This was a very exciting game on Tuesday evening in Corballa. The visitors got off to a great start and lead 2 nil but by the end of the first quarter we were leading 4 - 2

The second quarter was yet again tight but our defence was strong and at the half time break we lead 7 - 3 with James Tully, Ronan Wilson and Oisin Flynn our main score getters.

In the third quarter we were under the kosh and lost Daniel Ruane to an injury where he was replaced by U10 Patrick Cooney. At the end of this quarter we lead 8 - 6. 

The final quarter had all sorts of drama especially in the last 4 minutes when the sides were level. Colm Naughton, Dáire Barrins, Matthew Blakeney, Liam Donnegan and Fergal Boland repeatedly broke down the Calry attacks as they searched for the equaliser. Andrew Blakeney won a kickout at midfield and quickly transferred to Eli O'Neill on the week. He played a one two with Thomas Langan and Rian Winters before it came back to Eoin Duffy, releasing Oisin Flynn who put over the winning score. The defence still had to hold out which they did successfully.

Team: Liam Donnegan, Fergal Boland, Matthew Blakeney, Colm Naughton, Dáire Barrins, Patrick Cooney, Andrew Blakeney, Ronan Wilson, Rian Winters, Oisín Flynn, James Tully, Eoin Duffy, Thomas Langan, Daniel Ruane
