Scotstown bowed out of the Ulster SFC at the quarter-final stages following a 1-18 to 0-12 defeat to Glen at Celtic Park.

Glen were five points up at the half-time break and a powerful second-half display saw the Derry senior champions run out comfortable winners in the end.

Glen led 0-6 to 0-4 at the first water break as Conor McCarthy, Shane Carey, Rory Beggan and Kieran Hughes were all on target for Scotstown during the first quarter.

The Maghera men followed up with the first four scores of the second quarter as Emmet Bradley’s point on 27 minutes gave them a six-point cushion.

Shane Carey ended Scotstown’s barren spell a minute later and the sides subsequently traded a point each making it 0-11 to 0-6 at half-time.

On 33 minutes, Scotstown were reduced to 14 men when Kieran Hughes was sent off but they still managed to reduce the gap to four points at the second water break.
