SteelweldEskra missed a golden opportunity to take two points away from Paddy Cullen Park in Cookstown on Friday night after both sides finished level at the end of normal time. Cookstown had goalkeeper Donavan McGuckin to thank for a penalty save midway through the second half. At that point in the game Eskra were ahead by five points however McGuckin’s save sparked a Fr Rock’s revival and the Cookstown side recorded their first point of the season.

Eskra were full value for there 1-7 to 1-3 lead at the break with Niall Marlow fisting home a first half goal for the Emmetts and Joe McCarroll landing a number of long range frees. The Fr Rock’s goal game slightly against the run of play, John Gilmore fielding superbly and finding the net from close range.

After the break Cookstown got themselves back into the game with a point from Ryan Pickering before Eskra added points of their own from Niall Marlow and Peter Hughes. When Hughes’ penalty was saved by McGuckin Cookstown fired home a Ryan Pickering goal and late points from Shea McGarrity and Christopher Eastwood helped to secure a share of the points. Final Score – Cookstown 2-7 Eskra 1-10
