Senior Footballers were up against Round Towers Lusk in their final Championship group game knowing that a win would secure a place in the last eight.

The teams traded points in the opening stages of the 2nd half before Harps were awarded a penalty after 7 minutes however Dawson's effort was saved. Just over midway through the 2nd half Harps still held a 4 point lead before Ciaran Murphy bagged his 2nd goal followed by a point from Harry Dawson. Both sides kicked 3 points each in the final 10 minutes leaving the final score, Skerries Harps 3-15 Round Towers 2-10. Next up is a quarter final v St Judes on the weekend of 29/30 August.
