St Mary’s lead­ing Di­vi­sion One

The Sligo Champion - - SPORT -

ST Mary’s made it five wins from five in the Fureys Coaches Se­nior Foot­ball League Di­vi­sion 1 when they wel­comed Tub­ber­curry to Kent Park in the fifth round of the League on Satur­day.

A very en­ter­tain­ing game en­sued between 2 well matched sides, and the out­come re­mained in the bal­ance un­til the ref­eree blew the fi­nal whis­tle.

The fi­nal score was 1-16 to 1-14 in favour of the hosts who nar­rowly won by two points.

This puts them top of Di­vi­sion 1 with county Champions Tourlestrane in sec­ond place with Coolaney/ Mul­linabreena third.

The game between St Mary’s and Tub­ber­curry was all the tighter as nei­ther side could achieve dom­i­nance and pos­ses­sion was even through­out.

Paul Kilcoyne con­tin­ued his good form with an early goal, and this was just enough for Mary’s to stay in front as half time ap­proached. Stephen Coen had to leave through in­jury and this forced St Marys to switch into a more de­fen­sive style of play for the sec­ond half. Tub­ber­curry threw every­thing at the hosts and things looked shaky for St Mary’s when a last minute free ball crashed into the back of the net. It wasn’t enough though for the South Sligo side as the hosts fin­ished with two points to spare.

In Di­vi­sion 1, St Mo­laise Gaels are in 4th place, Cool­era/Strand­hill are 5th, Drum­cliffe/Rosses Point are 6th, Sham­rock Gaels are 7th, Tub­ber­curry are 8th, Curry 9th and East­ern Harps 10th.

Calry/St Joseph’s are lead­ing Di­vi­sion 2, with Easky 2nd, En­nis­crone/Kil­glass 3rd, Gee­vagh 4th, Bun­ni­nad­den 5th, Castle­con­nor 6th, St John’s 7th, St Pa­trick’s 8th, St Far­nan’s 9th and St Michael’s 10th.

Tub­ber­curry wel­come Coolaney/Mul­linabreena to Kilcoyne Park on Satur­day while St Mary’s go to Grange. Both games are at 7pm.
