Sullivan started the Burney Cup with a trip to Portadown College. After a midweek delay due to wether the game was played on a Friday afternoon at 3:30 in Portadown!!
After the team captain, Harry Morris, had broken a collar bone and will be out for a few weeks the team had to make a few positional changes.
Sullivan with a strong commitment to hockey had a full squad of 16, unfortunately Portadown could only manage 10 players. From the outset the game was dominated by Sullivan, Portadown rarely entered into the Sullivan half.
As a consequence, Sullivan won.
Final Score Sullivan 12 (M Willis 4, P Crookshanks 2, D Girvin, C Smith, N Keown, H Yarr, S Anderson and P Rose) v Portadown College 0
