Mostrim continued their rich vein of form in the 2021 Senior Football Championship with a hard earned win over Carrickedmond in a tight affair at Leo Casey Park, Ballymahon on Sunday last.

Mostrim . . . 0-14    Carrickedmond . . . 2-6

Mostrim have now all but mathematically qualified for the quarter-finals as they remain unbeaten in Group A following their win over Slashers and the draw against Colmcille in the previous rounds. 

David Shannon landed a monster free against the wind to fire Carrickedmond into a slender one point lead heading for injury time in the second half but Mostrim remained more composed than their opponents with a brilliant point from Padraic Joyce and a brace of scores from ace attacker Darragh Doherty clinching the vital win.
