The fourth round of the league division 2 took place on Saturday evening when we faced west Sligo neighbours Easkey in Bonniconlon. The ground was in excellent condition considering the rain during the week which allowed for fast free flowing football. 

We went into the lead from the throw in after a string of quick passes ended with Brian Lynn pointing and never relinquished it for the hour. We squandered a number of goal chances but at the halftime break we lead 0-8 v 0-2 with points from Kevin Langan, Eamon Cawley, Niall Judge and John McDonnell. 

Early in the second half Easkey put on serious pressure but our defence was holding out. Eamon Cawley put over two long range frees to keep the gap at 7. With 10 minutes to play we lead by 7 but a long range free went straight to the net to cut the lead to 4. However our lads upped their game and we finished the scoring with two goals from Eoin Flynn after the visitors keeper had saved a Brian Lynn effort and Niall Judge palmed the ball over the keeper to win 2-12 v 1-5.
