The team played away to St.Farnans in the fifth round of the division 4 league. A gale force wind blew from the Sligo town end and completely ruined the game.
After the home side got the first point we broke upfield with the breeze and a strong run from Paul Sweeney ended with Ultan McGranahan scoring a goal low into the corner. The home side responded well and scored a few points and then a goal to put themselves up by 5. However 2 great long range points by Brian Howley and a free from Brian Lynn meant we turned over at the break trailing 1-6 v 1-3.
The sides exchanged points at the start of the second half with ours coming from Frank Barrett. However this was our last score for the half and the home side took full control for the final 20 mins to win 2-12 v 1-4.
