Saints secured the three points here with a strong first half which yielded the four goals. David Slattery was unlucky on two minutes when Endis Mickelson somehow managed to save after Paul Breen had released Jimmy Carr on the right wing.

Saints were making the running and went 1-0 ahead on 11 minutes when Jimmy Carr’s left foot shot from the right curled into the corner of the net.

John O’Brien’s cross was poor on 14 mins after a good pass from Chris Higgins. David Slattery’s left foot shot was narrowly wide from a Jimmy Carr pass. Ed O’Dwyer did well on 20 mins to win the ball back and after a strong run fed Rhys Byron who hit just wide of goal. Kenny Cunningham’s left foot shot went wide across the goals after he had combined well with Rhys Byron on 24 mins.

At the other end Denis Ivors cut in from the right but shot well over the bar on the half hour.

Saints went 2-0 ahead on the when David Slattery did well to win a ball back after a Cormac Noonan pass and easily beat Mickelson from 12 yards. A mix up between two Saints players on 32 mins saw the ball break for Urban Nolan but he was forced wide by Aaron Wall and could only hit the side netting. Saints went 3-0 up on 34 mins when David Slattery hung in the air to head home a Kenny Cunningham cross. It was 4-0 on 44 mins when after good work by Rhys Byron Kenny Cunnungham followed up and scored from close range.

Adam McGrath replaced David Slattery at half time. Ivors hit wide on 47 mins after Ed O’Dwyer had lost the ball in possession. Jimmy Carr hit just wide on 51 mins following an Adam McGrath free kick. John O’Brien did well in attack on 55 mins but saw his effort saved by Mickelson. A strong run from Ivors on 58 mins brought a save from Aaron Wall. Borris saw more of the ball as Saints’ tempo dropped and Dylan Lee went close with a right foot effort that skimmed the top of the bar on the hour. Shane Ryan came in for Richie Ryan for Saints. Jimmy Carr saw his goal bound effort blocked by Maguire after good work from Adam McGrath and Rhys Byron.

Some of the Saints crosses were overhit at times. A long ball from Ed O’Dwyer saw Adam McGrath harshly deemed to be offside on 72 mins. At the other end Borris went close when Jamie Lee hit narrowly wide from a Jack Cleary cross. Ed O’Dwyer was unlucky on 77 mins when he did well to take down a Kenny Cunnungham cross only to hit too close to Mickelson. Ed again headed narrowly wide on 81 mins after Jimmy Carr had recycled an Adam McGrath corner kick. Paul Breen’s flick was narrowly wide from an Adam McGrath corner kick.

Rhys Byron was then unlucky to see an effort hit the post and go wide from a Jimmy Carr pass. Mickelson’s goal was living dangerously. John O’Brien, David Slattery, Rhys Byron and Jimmy Carr caught the eye for Saints while Mickelson in goal, Cleary, Ivors and Nolan were best for Borris.
