IT WAS a mixture of league and cup action this week in the Sligo Rovers 11-A-Side Astro Turf League and while the weather may have been cold the action was certainly hot on it with the game of the week being the quarterfinal clash in the Socrates Healthcare Informatics Cup between the G.S.S. and Killanaskully Wanderers.
This was a cracking game which ended up in a 3-3 draw. Dave Hannigan, Kevin Donnegan and Conor Jordan got the goals for the G.S.S. Colin McGee, Brian Murphy and Daniel McDonagh were on the mark for Killanaskully. The G.S.S. had to finish up with ten as Hannigan was sent off for dissent. With the game level it went to penalties where the G.S.S. won 3-2. Mattie Brennan and Jason McNulty scored their spot kicks for Killanaskully while Andy Kerrigan's effort was saved by G.S.S. keeper Noel O'Donnell. Jordan, Donnegan and Dermot O'Connor all scored their kicks to give their side the win.
Also through are Fiddler's Creek who were 3-0 winners against Forest Celtic with Glen Shannon getting all three goals. In an outstanding first round game Coolaney Celts were 4-1 winners against Owenbeg Ramblers. Trevor McGuinn scored two of their goals with Shane O'Brien and John McGowan getting one each. Daniel Green scored for Owenbeg.
In the League S.T.S.G. United recorded their first win of the season as they were 3-0 winners against Lick My White Gorilla's. Gerard Murphy continued with his great run of form as scored two while Bernie McDonagh scored the other.
Another side in great form are Boston United who were also 3-0 winners in their game with the Pier Head Hotel although they left it late with all three goals coming in the last ten minutes. Michael Walsh scored their first with Paul Keaveney and then Ronan Cox getting their others.
