Belcoo took their time to get into their stride as Roslea were retaining possession and playing short passes against the wind. The visitors did manage to register the first score as Sean Quigley landed a free.

The home side got on the scoreboard when Shain Gallagher pointed from distance while Shane McCabe, Stephen Maguire and Ciaran Flaherty all landed scores over the next 10minutes as Belcoo took a commanding 0-4 to 0-1 lead. Niall Cosgrove responded with a fisted point for but it was Belcoo who finished the half on top despite some poor wides.

Shane McCabe fired over from the left wing before he found the net in the 26th minute. A high ball into Stephen Maguire broke to McCabe and the attacker hit the net from close range. Maguire landed the final score of the half to give Belcoo a 1-6 to 0-2 advantage.

Sean Quigley would register all Roslea’s second half scores and the forward was on target from a wind assisted 50metre free kick. Stephen Maguire responded from a close range free before Quigley fisted a dropping ball to the net on 40minutes to cut Belcoo lead to just three points.

In the closing quarter both sides struggled for scores. Seamus Conlon did point from Belcoo but Quigley’s free cancelled that score before the Roslea man hit another to close the gap to two points. In the last attack Emmet Scollan drilled over a point to secure a three point victory for the home side.
