Michael Cusack's 5-10 Magh Cuilinn 3-08

The U16 were involved in a shoot out in Kilbeacanty in which Cusack's proved to have the better defence. Magh Cuilinn's first half effort when they shot 1-06 was undermined by the concession of 3 first half goals as they trailed 3-05 to 1-06 at half. When Cusack's centre forward crashed another goal home within minutes of restart, a rout might have been on the cards. In fact Magh Cuilinn rallied and produced 1-02 without reply to get within one score but they couldn't convert further opportunities. Cusack's restored the half time margin and their full forward struck for a fifth goal to extend the lead to eight. Magh Cuilinn responded and delivered yet another goal after several frustrated attempts. As time ran out and Magh Cuilinn pushed for a further goal, Cusack's picked off further points to restore their eight point margin.
