Duleek/Bellewstown 1-12
Walterstown 0-12

Duleek/Bellewstown began their Division 1 league campaign with a convincing victory over Walterstown on Sunday played in perfect conditions in Dunganny. 

Impressive half wing half forward Darren Mills opened up the East Meath's men scoring account with a fine effort from close range before Walterstown responded by scoring three points in succession. It was then 40 yards man Mark Collins who stepped up to the mark to score two fine frees within minutes of each other after corner forward John Flood was fouled on both occasions. 

Two further points came from wing half back Paid Howard and again Collins from a placed ball but it was Peter Curran who was the hero of this half after he blasted to the net after an excellent ball through from Mark Collins to the leave the scores 1-06 to 0-05 points at the break. 

The second half produced a well fought contest between both teams with plenty of hard hitting. Once again it was Mills who opened up the scoring for the men in green and yellow as he pointed from a difficult angle from close range. Further points from centre back Michael Dowling, Peter Curran (3 frees) and John Flood left it Duleek/Bellewstown 1-12 to Walterstown 0-12 at the end of the contest.

For Duleek Bellewstown Des Teeling did well in defence while Declan Gaffney led from midfield. Mark Collins, Peter Curran and Darren Mills all did well in attack for the winners.
