Expert Electrical Minor League Finals

 Tubbercurry/ Cloonacool 5-14

St. Farnan's/ St. Pat's          2-16

This was a terrific game of football played in a very sporting manner on a beautiful sunny evening on Friday last in Markievicz Park. The first point of the match came from Jim Davis of F/P. Riain Moylan of T/C added two points. P/F added four points without reply but the game turned in T/C  favour when Conor Matthews scored two cracking goals. Points were exchanged by both sides and at half time the score read St. Farnan's/ St. Pat's 0-10, Tubbercurry/ Cloonacool 2-8.

Captain Niall Murphy of T/C opened the scoring in the second half with a fine point. F/P added three points and a goal from Cahan Hallinan levelled matters after twelve minutes, F/P 1-13,  T/C 2-10. A second goal from Jack Clarke gave F/P a two point lead. With fifteen minutes remaining it was T/C who finished the stronger adding three goals to their tally. F/ P had chances but couldn't finish. Goals win matches and this was the case for T/C. 

Both sides gave everything in this game and it was enjoyed by all. Riain Moylan was superb for T/C and forward Conor Matthews posed a lot of problems for F/P defence. Niall Murphy was excellent in midfield and Oisin O'Donnell did very well. F/P had good performances from Cahan Hallinan, Jim Davis, Conor Keaveney and Jack Clarke in attack and David Hallinan in defence.

The cup was presented to captain Niall Murphy by Pat Conway who commended both teams on a great display.
