Sullivan v Campbell College
This game started much better than last weeks game. Sullivan played well with Campbell happy to let Sullivan have the ball in their own half and Campbell defended from the halfway line. This made it difficult for Sullivan to break into the Campbell area to even take a shot. Sullivan took a halftime lead through goals from Djay Erskine and Harry Yarr.
Halftime Sullivan 2 (Erskine & Yarr) v Campbell College 0
The second half start with Campbell pushing high against the Sullivan defence. This initially made it difficult for Sullivan, but once they settled into Campbell’s new approach Sullivan used the open space to score a handful of second half goals – with goals from Daniel Girvin, Jack Crossan, Tom McClintock (2) and Jonny Crookshanks
