Derrygonnelly 0-15 Devenish 0-08.

Derrygonnelly secured the New York Cup for a third year in a row as they ran out 0-15 to 0-08 winners over Devenish in today's Senior Football Championship final at Brewster Park.

The opening 20 minutes of the game was evenly contested but the Harps took control in the ten minutes before half time to go in four points to the good, 0-09 to 0-05.

And they were in command throughout the second half to eventually finish up deserving seven point victors and round off a great day for the club with the U16s lifting the championship title in the curtain raiser.

Devenish settled quickly into their first final in 19 years as they claimed the opening two scores of the game, both coming from Terry O'Flanagan frees although at the other end of the pitch, Tom Treacy was forced into a smart save from Paul Ward.

The Garrison men were winning their fair share of ball in the middle of the park but Derrygonnelly hit back to level up things as Leigh Jones and Gary McKenna knocked over before Devenish edged back in front with a free from O'Flanagan after a foul on Barry Mulrone.

It remained an even contest as Eamon McHugh banged over a 45 for the Harps, O'Flanagan answered with a free for Devenish and Ward levelled things once more from a free to leave it 0-04 apiece after 18 minutes.

However, the holders began to get on top over the remainder of the half with Garvan Jones, Michael Jones and Conall Jones all to the fore.

Conall Jones put the Harps in front for the first time with an excellent score from the right and Gary McKenna slotting over from play to make it 0-06 to 0-04.

Conall Jones then raced past Shane McAloon but although his shot beat Treacy he was denied a goal by a superb goal-line clearance by Martin Doherty.

The post then came to the rescue for an under pressure Devenish as Ward raced in only to hit the base of the post.

A McKenna point from a free followed though and when Ward tagged on another point it left four between the sides.

A cracking Chris O'Brien point following a strong run saw Devenish land their first score in 14 minutes but it was Derrygonnelly who had the final say of the half with a lovely Kevin Cassidy point to leave it 0-09 to 0-05 at the break.

Devenish grabbed the first point of the second half as Chris O'Brien latched on to the ball and blazed over from close range.

However, Derrygonnelly, with Ryan Jones dictating play, soon started to pull away.

They hit the next four scores to go from three up to seven ahead and put the game out of reach of Devenish.

Conall Jones drilled over a superb free from the left before Leigh Jones teed up Declan Cassidy for a neat point.

Garvan Jones was next up with a well taken point before Declan Cassidy's high lofted effort made it 0-13 to 0-07.

Devenish were wasteful in possession and had registered six wides in the opening 15 minutes of the second half and it was not until the 49th minute that they got their next score with Terry O'Flanagan landing two frees to bring it back to a five point game.

The goal that the Garrison men needed was not to arrive though and Derrygonnelly finished of with points from Leigh Jones and Ryan Jones to finish up 0-15 to 0-08 winners at the end.
