Termon dominated Four Masters from start to finish to claim the U-16B Championship crown in Convoy on Saturday night.

In what was a pretty polished team performance, midfelder Caolan McDaid and centre half forward Enda McCormack, were the two outstanding footballers on display.

The due who between them accounted for 1-12 of Termon’s total. McDaid ended the game with a personal tally of a goal and seven points while the equally impressive McCormack, posted five points.

But overall this was an impressive team performance for the winners who won all of the key battles all over the park.

And as well as the aforementioned McDaid and McCormack, PJ McBride, Nathan McElwaine, James McSherry, Conor O’Grady and Zac Goran also played big parts in the victory.

Four Masters, on the other hand, never reached the heights of their earlier performances in the campaign.

But against a slicker and more fired up Termon outfit they were facing a losing battle from very early.

Termon led 1-9 to 0-3 at half-time after totally dominating the half.

James McSherry hit the first point with McDaid and McCormack posting early warning signs.

And they already had one had on the cup by the time McDaid rattled the back of Paul Cannon’s net on the half-hour mark.
Matthew Oates, Aaron McCrea and Jack Keeney, scored the Masters’ points in the first half.

With McDaid and McCormack continuing to dictate the second half became academic from very early. The Burn Road boys - with points from McDaid, Nathan McElwaine, McCormack and a second goal from Zac Gorman - had extended their lead out to 2-13 to 0-4 by the end of the third quarter.

Neil Ward scored a late goal and Meehan struck a point for the Donegal Town before McDaid brought down the curtain with two points.
