Just 3 days after their win away to Rathcoffey, Sallins made the long but worth while journey north of the county as they ran out nine point victors against Cappagh on Saturday evening.
Both sides traded possession in the opening minutes of the game but it was Sallins who drew first blood with a point from Damien Behan after great work from John Boland at the heart of the visitors defence.
Sallins gradually picked up momentum and kicking with a strong breeze added five more points to their tally, first Behan got his second score of the game before Paul Moynihan got his name on the scoresheet.
Two points from Conor Herbert and another from Damien Behan completed the rout.
The home team had to wait until the 18th minute before they got their first score of the game, corner forward Andy Convey showed great determination and desire to break through numerous Sallins tackles to lay the ball off to Brian Dillon to tap over.
The half ended with the two sides scoring a free kick each, first Conor Herbert pointing for Sallins after he himself was fouled before Mark Nowell slotted over his sides second point of the game.
This left the half time score 7-2 in favour of The visitors.
The Sallins mentors had obviously explained to the team how to go about playing the second half against the wind as Sallins were awarded a free kick on the 21, which was played short for Fergal Swan to put over the bar from 14 yards before captain Derek Walsh rode challenges to score his first point of the game.
Cappagh however hit back with an immediate response with a point apiece for Sean McNally and Mark Nowell.
Then came the move and score of the match from Sallins corner forward Paul Moynihan finishing off a breakaway that involved 21 team passes working right up from the back prior to Conor Herberts  4th point of the game.
Points from Sean McNally and Paddy Cullen gave Cappagh their 5th and 6th points of the game.
However just to rub salt in the home teams wounds Sallins went on to hit 4 points on the trot with a point each for Herbert, Behan, Moynihan, and Walsh respectively.
