           St. Endas 1-11, Shane O`Neills 3-14.
By Terrence Mulvenna

           The first playable league fixture of the season saw Glenarm travel to Mallusk playing fields to face St. Endas. The visitors were sharp from the first whistle with brothers Barry and Darren Hamill bagging a goal-a-piece in the second and sixth minutes against two pts for the home team, a lead which they give up. The next fifteen minutes points were exchanged, with Blain McDermott firing over three pts from frees then on twenty two mins Declan McDermott evaded a barrage of attention to score Glenarms third goal. Points each for Barry Hamill, Hugh-Pat McNeill, and Liam O`Neill and Glenarm led 3-6, 0-7 at h/t.

St. Endas  came out blazing at the start of the second half  scoring a goal through John McGoldrick on four mins put them on top for the third quarter. It was up to Blain McDermott to steady the ship with his sharp shooting from placed ball efforts, six from six. The home teams challenge was snubbed in the final quarter however as the boys in blue grew stronger and pegged on pts from Brendan McDermott, Declan McDermott, Darren Hamill, and Jake Hamilton to run out winners , 3-14, 1-11.
