Capel Plough 2 Stanton 2

This was a usual end-of-season game on a hard pitch with neither side needing the points.

Add to this Stanton's upcoming Omnico Cup being more important to them and you had a dull first half with Capel doing all the attacking, but having relatively few chances.

Tynan and Garwood went the closest to scoring, while Danny Hazelton for the visitors cut out most of their other attacks.

At half-time Stanton realised that even at half pace they might get something out of the game and they started the second half better, although it took a sharp shower to really galvanise both teams.
