Feile B Football Final
Patrick Sarsfield’s 4-11 Cuchullian’s Dunloy 0-05
The destination of the Feile B title was decided early in proceedings as a strong Sarsfield’s combination proved too strong for Cuchullian’s in the opening game in a double bill of fare at the 4G Colaiste Feirste on the falls road on Sunday last.
The more physical, stronger Paddies side started in confidence and indeed continued in the same mode to conclusion.
Dara Mc Menamin, who together with his partner in the central berth Brian Hardy dominated the middle from the outset had the opening major when he found the back of the Dunloy net early in proceedings and after Shay Ferris, Rian Feagan and Finn Jeffrey bagging early points apiece the Stewartstown road side had moved 1-04 to 0-00 ahead by the quarter mark.
The lighter Dunloy boys were finding penetration to the scoring zone difficult and although they did get off the mark with a Daire Mc Mullan point such was to be their lot in the opening fifteen minute period.
At The short blast the dominance enjoyed by the Paddies was more than obvious in the scoreline at such juncture with the West Belfast lads close to the podium with a 3-07 to 0-01 advantage.
The South Antrim champions started the second half with a spring in their step with nothing less than a major accident halting their progress to the Feile B title and in the event an early goal by replacement Caolan Gorman underlined such inevitability.
The Cuchullian’s increased their tally on the scoreboard by a further handful of points but in the event the Sarsfield’s side were never in any semblance of danger and strolled over the line with a 4-11 to 0-05 winning advantage.
