By Tommy Ross

After scraping a win against St Farnan's by 2 points in the quarter final Curry this south Sligo derby clash with a comfortable win against Tubbercurry under the lights in Bekan.

Curry started out strongly with a point each from Danny O’Hora and Aiden O’Hora. However, Tubber’s Stephen Kilcoyne scored a goal and point to put Tubbercurry right into the game as the early exchanges were tit for tat.  Curry settled with a number of point before a second Tubbercurry goal from Ben Henry that left just the bare minimum between the teams at the water break at 1-5  to 2-1 .

Curry then took a decisive hold of the game in the second quarter. Firstly on 22 minutes centre half forward Liam Reilly made a speedy run through the middle giving the ball to Keith Davey which ended up with a well-worked goal.

They added to that with a further goal from the elusive and pacy Bertie Gallagher in the 27rth minute and added a point also to finish the half 3–6 to 2–1 ahead.

After the break, possession of the ball was at a premium and even though well behind, Tubbercurry kept fighting. Both defences were on top and only Curry managed to add just two points, to Tubber’s none, to lead 3-8 to 2-1 at the water break.

Although Tubbercurry opened the scoring in the final quarter with a free from Henry it was to be their last score of the game.

Instead in the final minutes super-sub Jack Duffy finished off Curry’s score by scoring a right foot shot into the back of the net and seal his sides place in next weekend’s Junior B final where they will meet Eastern Harps.
