Aughavas claimed the last Adult championship title of 2016 when they proved far too strong for Ballinamore Sean O'Heslin's second string in the Pyramid Bookmakers Junior A Championship Final in Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada.

AUGHAVAS 0-12 BALLINAMORE SEAN O'HESLIN'S 0-4

As the only first string team in the grade, Aughavas were heavy favourites going into the game and they lived up to the billing as they led 0-6 to 0-2 at the halftime break. And they replicated that scoreline in the second half, again scoring six points to Ballinamore's two.

Aughavas appeared to have hit a stumbling block when Adrian Charles was red carded for a striking offence 12 minutes into the second half along with the loss of the influential David Charles but the Ray McBrien coached team had just too much hunger and experience for a disjointed and lacklustre Ballinamore side.

Captain Kieran Moran lifted the Cup with midfielder Michael Fitzpatrick taking the man of the match honours.
