ST. BRIDES REMAIN ON TOP SPOT
St. Brides maintained their lead in the Division 2 League with this comprehensive win in Mell on Wednesday night. This win, their eighth win in a row, leaves them well in the driving seat in the race to promotion to the top flight.
Both teams started off slowly and both sides could only manage nine points between them for the half.
St. Brides lead by three points at the interval 0-06 to 0-03.
Although this was The Reds second game in less than 24 hours, owing to Division 3 commitments, they showed no signs of tiredness and moved up a number of gears in the second half dominating proceedings and scoring 3-05.
The hosts could only manage to raise the white flag four times in reply.
