Drum­cliffe/Rosses Point into rel­e­ga­tion fi­nal with Curry

The Sligo Champion - - SPORT -


with Paul Lo­gan sup­ply­ing six first half points.

Jamie Gillen chipped in with an impressive 1-2, and the lead could have (and per­haps should have) been greater.

On 24 min­utes, lead­ing by seven points, Molaise keeper Diar­muid Feeney pulled off a fine save to deny Kevin Davey a cer­tain goal. That stop would prove key as Grange fin­ished the half well, scor­ing a Johnny Kel­lly goal to re­duce the mar­gin to six points by the in­ter­val.

Drum­cliffe/Rosses Point coped rea­son­ably well against the wind in the third quar­ter, and with fif­teen min­utes to go, the lead was still six points but as mis­takes started to creep in, Molaise started to make head­way.

Kee­lan Wat­ters goal af­ter a fine ini­tial save by Ro­nan McCor­mack brought them right back into it - and as Drum­cliffe/Rosses Point lost their way, Molaise, through Daragh Fal­lon and Alan McLough­lin started to find their scor­ing range.

Drum­cliffe/Rosses Point’s frus­tra­tion was com­pounded in the clos­ing stages when Cian Lally re­ceived a straight red card, and Seán Power col­lected a sec­ond yel­low.

Molaise outscored their North Sligo neigh­bours by 1-11 to 0-3 in the sec­ond half which tells its own story.

The re­sult means Drum­cliffe/Rosses Point now face a championship rel­e­ga­tion fi­nal against Curry.

The loser will make the drop to in­ter­me­di­ate championship foot­ball next year.
