Sullivan faced Methody in a repeat of the McCullough Cup semi-final, to try to achieve a successive fourth appearance in the Burney Cup final.
Methody started brightly but Sullivan started to control the game. Methody were defending well until Issac Hart converted a low cross from Tom McClintock.
Halftime Sullivan 1 v Methody 0
Sullivan started the second half well with a goal two minutes in Matthew Willis was first to the ball after the Methody keeper save a penalty corner. Methody forced a few successive penalty corners but the Sullivan defence and keeper Frazer Todd successfully defended these. Sullivan followed these up with a successful penalty corner of their own, Matthew Morris deflecting a shot from Paddy Crookshanks. Sullivan scored a fourth when Harry Yarr netted a cross from Patrick Rose. Sullivan were unlucky not to get a couple more goals from great play. Methody threw all they could at Sullivan and won a penalty stroke, but Frazer Todd saved this and then another good shot from open play.
