Sligo hurlers make it three wins out of three

Sligo hurlers are virtually assured of a league final place in the Division 3B of the Allianz Hurling League following Sunday’s emphatic 4-19 to 2-5 win against Cavan at windy Kent Park in Ballydoogan.

Daithi Hand’s side, aided by a strong wind at their backs, took control of proceedings early on and established a 3-12 to 1-0 lead by half-time.

Cavan added a second goal early in the second-half but, otherwise, Sligo were rarely troubled.

Sligo manager Daithi Hand’s spoke with Liam Maloney after the game:


The Yeats County sit top of Division 3B with six points and, barring an unlikely set of results in the final series of league games, are set for a place in the league final.

Their likely opponents are Longford who beat Martin Cunniffe’s Leitrim on Sunday by 2-18 to 0-16 at Glennon Pearse Park.

In Division 2B, Donegal are set for a relegation play-off. Lee Henderson scored 0-10 for the Tir Chonnaill men but that couldn’t prevent Wicklow from recording a 2-13 to 0-15 win at O’Donnell Park in Letterkenny. The result leaves Donegal pointless after three matches.
