Minor Championship. 

Moy Davitts 2 – 17 Crossmolina 2 – 8

Crossmolina raced into five points lead in the opening five minuets with points from Ronan Lavelle raising two white flags and Keelan Hegarty squeezing home a goal while playing with breeze but some poor shot selection cost the side a number of great scoring chances and when Moy Davitts attacked they caused the visitor defences all sorts of problems with James McHugh David Byrne Matthew Ledbetter and Michael Jordan getting on the score board to lead at the break by four points and continued to dominate the second half apart from Darragh Gills threat when scoring 1 – 3 and Robert Murphy chipping in with a point to leave Moy Davitts deserving winner on a terrible day for football with driving rain and strong winds throughout
