The two sides met at Sligo IT grounds on Saturday evening for the first time since Gaels dumped us out of the championship last year. A very strong gale force wind blew into the Calry end and the home team opted to play against it.
 
In the first minute Ronan Keane put us ahead with a point which followed directly with a goal from a penalty by Kevin Langan. From this bad start the home team scored the next 3 points and had us in disarray. Frank Barrett scored a lobbed goal and 3 quickfire points in the last few minutes of the half left us with the lead of 2-4 v 0-3.
 
In the first minutes of the second half we gifted a goal to the opposition from a 60m free to reduce the lead to 4 points with 27 minutes to play. However we totally took over from then on we the forwards winning a lot of ball in the tackle and creating good scoring chances for themselves. The best of the goals was a good team movement that ended with an Alan Cawley goal. In the end we won very easily with Kevin Langan acconting for 4-6 and Tom Cawley getting the other score
