Whitehall-Colmcille:  0 – 5;   Skerries Harps:  2 – 16.

Skerries Harps made it four wins from four in a facile victory over promoted Whitehall in Cloghran on Saturday evening. Both sides fielded understrength, with Harps short Dubs Under 21 duo Eoin Smith and Donal McIlgorm and the home side missing Dubs sharpshooter Cormac Costello.

The game was effectively over after 10 mins when Harps led 0 -5 to no score. The Whitehall goals led a charmed life until the stroke of half time when Skerries captain Harry Dawson finished a move to score Harps first goal and leave them ahead at the break by  1 -12 to  0 -1.

Skerrries emptied their bench for the second half and with 12 players scoring, including the goalkeeper and full back, they ran out easy winners to maintain their unbeaten run and edge into leadership of Div.2 on scoring difference over Templeogue Synge Street..

Skerries next outing is their Senior Championship first round tie with Thomas Davis, on Thursday 28th April in Parnell Park at 8.15 pm.
