No major upsets in the Sligo Southern Hotel Super League as Arrow Harps and St John’s shared the spoils in an eight goal thriller.

Malachy Spratt opening the account for St John’s and Keith Lynch netting twice from the penalty spot plus an own goal ensured a point for St John’s. Indeed, they played the last 50 minutes with only ten men as David Heffernan was sent off.

Arrow Harps scorers Frank Quinn, Noel McKenna, Ben Touhy and Seamus Hailstones.

Aughanagh Celtic and Ballisodare United played a six-goal draw. Bryan Craig, Paul McTiernan and Seamus Kane on the mark for Aughanagh with Darragh Healy, Adam Grace and Andrew Patton scoring for Ballisodare United.

Calry Bohs continue their recent great form hitting Ballygawley Celtic for five without reply Conor Griffin, Kevin Coen, Eoin Doherty and a double from Stephen McDermott doing the damage.

In the Andrew Mullens Sligo Pallets Premier League, the two big guns clashed Cartron United at home to Cliffoney Celtic. With no goals for 70 minutes and then it all happened with Niall Thomas scoring for Cliffoney but five minutes later Kevin Buckley equalised for Cartron. Four minutes from time, Chris McLoughlin fired Cliffoney into the lead from the penalty spot and in injury time Niall Thomas wrapped up the game for Cliffoney with a cracker of a goal.

MCR had a great win at home to Gurteen Celtic with Junior International Keith Nibbs scoring all five goals from play while Ross O’Dowd and James O’Hara netted for Gurteen Celtic.

Coolaney United and Chaffpool shared the spoils with Coolaney scoring courtesy of Declan McCormack and Alan Duggan while the Pool responded with goals from Criostoir Davey and Paul Connolly

Glenview Stars with two goals from Clive Brennan and a third from Scott Mc Gary claimed all three points away to Benbulben.
