The U16 team played their final match of the league against Tullaroan in Thomastown on Monday 1st of May.  Tullaroan began well, getting the first score of the game with a point.  Tullogher were a bit sluggish at the start but their ability to take their chances in front of goal ensured that they finished the first half ahead.  The score at half-time was Tullogher 3-2, Tullaroan 0-6. Tullogher began the second half in determined fashion to maintain the momentum from the first half and the scores continued to flow with a good spread of players getting on the scoresheet.  Tullaroan continued to apply pressure and with two Tullogher players sent to the line during the closing stages of the match they scored 3 goals from frees but it was too little too late for them to salvage anything from the game.  Full time Tullogher/Rosbercon 7-10, Tullaroan 3-9.

The U16s’ finished third in their group in the league, a respectable placing given the quality of the teams in the group.  The mentors and club would like to wish the players doing their Junior Cert all the best in the upcoming exams.
