Sullivan started their Irish Schools Championship with a game at Deramore against Cookstown. Having played Cooktown recently and won convincingly Sullivan went into the game full of confidence.
With a good support of parents and friends there was a bit of a mixed start Sullivan took the lead via Callum Robson. Cooktown quickly equalised. Sullivan then started to play good hockey. This lead to five more goals before half time.
