The second match in the group stage of the McCullough Cup was at Deramore against Methody.
Sullivan controlled the play with Methody only troubling goalkeeper, Thomas McCord, on a few occasions. Sullivan took the lead through.
The second half was much the same as the first with Sullivan in control.
Final Score Sullivan 4 (M Crookshanks (2), M Morris & H Morris) – Methody 0
The third group match was against Wallace High who Sullivan defeated in the final last year. This match was always thought of as the team who would win should top the group.
The match was played in front of quite a few spectators from both schools. Both schools had Ulster players and Irish internationals amounts their squad. The first half was a very tense affair with neither team committed to pushing forward, rather concentrating on a defence game. With very few chances the first half ended nil all.
The start pf the second half saw Wallace take and early lead. With hindsight this did the game a favour. Sullivan then had to push forward and as a result created more opportunities from open play and penalty corners. It was the penalty corners that made the difference with Matthew Morris scoring a deflection from a Matthew Crookshanks shot and then Fergus Gibson scoring from another corner.
This was a great win.
