The team maintained their unbeaten home record for the year when they
defeated Coolera/Strandhill in the final round of the league in
Corballa on Sunday afternoon. The last time we met the North Sligo
side we won by the narrowest of margins in the Benson Cup Final. This
time the result was in our favour again with the side delivering a
good team performance. Playing with the elements in the opening
period, We went ahead 3-0 after ten minutes, and the visitors replied
with two points in quick succession. At the interval we were 0-8 v 0-4
to the good and we picked up the pace in the seconf half. Two goals in
a second half purple patch paved the way to victory for the team. 2-11
v 0-5 was the final score, with star performances from Keith Earlis,
Kevin McDonnell, and Ronan Keane. We just missed out on promotion to
Division 1 for next season by the narrowest of margins.
Coolera/Strandhill who topped the table were presented with the Cup
