Sligo Minors lose but McDonnell and Curley impress

The Sligo minor team played in Carrick-on-Shannon on Sunday. Kevin McDonnell lined out again this year at centre back but was moved to midfield early on.

The game was ruined as a spectacle when a Sligo forward was sent off (how one man in a two man schmozzle was picked out !!!)

For the second half Sligo were a man short but were lifted by a brillant individual goal by McDonnell who drove from midfield past 5 Roscommon defender and buried the ball into the roof of the net. Stevie Curley came on at halftime at wing forward and was denied right after Kevins goal by a breath taking save from the Roscommon keeper. That was good as it got for Sligo who faded in the dying minutes. Eoin Kent was away and missed out on the championship game after playing all league games.
