Missing three players from their starting line up our minors were narrowly beaten by Tubbercurry after a keenly fought local derby at Kilcoyne Park on Sunday last. Tubbercurry were under pressure and some great runs by Sean Gorman from defence resulted in Eoin O Dowd finishing to the net. A second goal followed when a long range free from Enda Kivlehan which looked like going over the bar finished in the net. Both teams exchanged scores before half time with Tubbercurry narrowing the margin from frees. Tubbercurry came more into the game in the second half but our lads held out until the dying minutes of the game when Tubbercurry converted a penalty which proved to be the decisive score. Some great runs from James Conlon deserved some reward and one effort was cleared off the line by the Tubbercurry defence.. Final score Coolaney/Mullinabreena 2-5 Tubbercurry 1-10 This was a great display by our minors in their first match of the season  and hopefully more matches of this calibre will follow.Team was: Declan Mc Cormack,Sean Gorman,Aidan Coleman,Kieran Doddy,Raymond Connolly,James Conlon ,Enda Kivlehan (1-5), Sean Davey, Kevin Mc Donagh, Conor Gorman, Conor Mc Cormack, Eoin O Dowd (1-0), Criostoir Davey,Niall Gallagher,Joseph Henry.
