Scotstown cruise to victory

Scotstown 2-16 Clontibret 0-07
Scotstown ended a 20-year wait for a Monaghan SFC title with an emphatic win over Clontibret in Clones yesterday.

Apart from the opening quarter, this game was a contest only in name, as Scotstown took increasing control.

Scotstown led at half-time by 0-10 to 0-5 before goals from Shane Carey — pouncing on Clontibret goalkeeping errors — sealed victory for his side.

Clontibret finished the game with 14 players following the red card dismissal of substitute John Paul Mone midway through the second half.
