SEAN MCDERMOTTS           5-16


Sean McDermotts continued their fine form of late with a victory in this high scoring encounter at Stonetown on Sunday afternoon.

A Marty Duffy goal in the first minute gave the visitors the best possible start and with Kevin McMahon also in fine form these two caused havoc to the Annaghminnon defence.

Not to be outdone by the high scoring forwards Peter Osborne, who had a fine outing, chipped in with two goals and a point, while Aaron Myles also scored a fine goal following a fine run by Danny Commins. At half time the Seans were leading by 3-7 to 1-3 with Conor Russell scoring the Rovers goal.

With the visitors ten points up at the break, the result was never in doubt despite the fact that Annaghminnon rallied to score three goals in the final quarter through Dylan Mulholland (2) and Dwayne Markey.

DOWDALLSHILL             0-08

Harry Butterly’s star continues to rise with an eye-catching scoring display against hosts Dowdallshill. The youngster rattled off two penalties and ten points in the one sided Division 3B victory.

The first half was competitive with Noel Finnegan and Niall McManus finding the range for the Dundalk side as the score was 2-7 to 0-6 at the interval.
