Drogheda Independent - - SPORT -

AN un­der-strength Duleek side trav­elled to Dun­dalk on Sun­day morn­ing to face Bel­lur­gan in the Kilmes­san Shield semi-fi­nal and came up short.

Duleek started brightly and played some lovely foot­ball in the first 25 min­utes, but Bel­lur­gan took the lead fol­low­ing a goal­mouth scramble on the half-hour.

Both teams con­tin­ued to play ball in the right way and as Duleek went search­ing for an equaliser it was Bel­lur­gan that cap­i­talised on a de­fen­sive mis­take to dou­ble their lead and take the Dun­dalk team into the fi­nal.

Duleek con­tin­ued to push un­til the fi­nal whis­tle, with Karl Dyas and Rob­bie Daly both go­ing close, but three games in a week took its toll on the away team as they bowed out of the com­pe­ti­tion.
