No joy for Sligo in Midleton

Sligo’s poor run of results in 2018 continues with a disappointing 35-18 defeat to Midleton in Cork this afternoon.

Sligo started brilliantly with a Callum Godard try inside the opening minutes, converted by Jack Keegan.

Keegan added two penalties as Sligo opened up a 13-6 lead, but the home side claimed their first try of the game just before the break to leave the half-time score 13-11.

Philip Carter’s second half try looked to give Sligo some breathing space in the second half, but proved their final score of the game, as Midleton’s second try took them level and they added two more in the closing stages to secure the extra point, and deny Sligo a losing bonus.

Sligo have now lost all four games so far in 2018, and have dropped off the top of the Division 2C table.
