Brackaville Crowned Junior Champions

The party is well and truly on in Brackaville tonight after they secured the Power NI Tyrone Junior Championship in Omagh this afternoon. Without any question of doubt the Junior decider was the most entertaining of the two games on offer in Healy park today. Half time saw Brackaville take a 1-4 to 0-6 lead into the break. The Brackaville goal was the result of a wonderful team move involving Sean McNally, Joe Rafferty and finally Martin Gervin who managed to scuff a shot under the Christopher Dynes in the Aghaloo goal. At that point Brackaville were four points ahead. Aghaloo finished the half much the stronger with points from McGlone and Stephen Donnelly.

Aghaloo continued the momentum early in the second half and were quickly two points up. Kevin O’Gorman shot to an empty goal in the opening two minutes after Stephen Donnelly played a perfectly timed ball through to him. Indeed Aghaloo could and should have been further ahead had Stephen Donnelly not been just a little more selfish. He attempted to fist the ball to Cathal Cuddy when it looked like he was in a better place to shoot for goal. That was definitely the turning point in the game.

Brackaville seized the initiative thereafter with their midfield in particular leading the charge. Rian McHugh was in complete control of the kick outs and fielded some brilliant catches throughout the game. The magnicent Cahir McGuinness showed the leadership required to see them over the line. The Brackaville midfield delivered 0-4 between them from play. Up front Joe Rafferty was a constant thorn in the Aghaloo defence and Che O’Donnell deadly accurate from free kicks. That seven point Brackaville blitz was in the end the winning of the game for the Owen Roes men. As for Aghaloo they had the opportunity to ask more questions of Brackaville on the day but it didn’t quite work out for them.

If the rumours are to be believed we may have seen the last of Stephen Donnelly as he now looks certain to undergo surgery for the long term injury. If that it true then we should pay tribute to a fantastic career for both Aghaloo and Tyrone.  A brilliantly accurate forward for more than a decade.
