Scotstown staged an increasingly effective second-half performance to clinch the reserve football league division 1A title at the expense of Clontibret in this entertaining contest that was played in somewhat dull conditions in Tyholland on Saturday evening last. Clontibret though were well in this contest in the 1st half where a Dean McDonnell goal helped them establish a foothold but by half-time. Scotstown had turned things around to open a 3 points lead. As the 2nd half progressed Scotstown took a firmer grip on proceedings and their more efficient use of the ball and accuracy up front, particularly from Orin Heaphey and Ruairi Sheehan, saw them pull away to win comfortably enough at the finish.
