Longford Slashers . . . . . . 3-13 Killashee St. Brigid’s . . . . . . 0-4

While the wide margin of 18 points separated the sides in the finish it developed into quite a struggle for Longford Slashers who took a considerable length of time to assert their superiority over last year’s Intermediate title winners St. Brigid’s in the Senior Football Championship clash at Leo Casey Park in Ballymahon on Sunday with the goals coming from Mark Smith (first half), Martin Nevin and Colin Smith. Slashers led by 1-6 to 0-3 at the break and it remained that way until the 12th minute of the second half before they eventually pulled away.
