Brothers And HTC Through To Mac Rory Semis
There was no shortage of late drama in Friday night’s Mac Rory Cup quarter finals when both Omagh CBS and Holy Trinity College Cookstown came from behind to make it through to the semi finals of the competition.
Holy Trinity headed into injury time three points down against the most experienced team in the competition St Pat’s Maghera. However a sixty third minute goal from Michael Mc Elhatton drew the game level but the drama was far from over. The Cookstown lads sealed the win with a last minute Ryan Quinn point to claim their place in the semi final.
Omagh also left it late and for long periods of a game played in difficult conditions they were second best to a very impressive St Colman’s side who will be wondering just how they failed to put Omagh away much earlier in the game. The Newry side squandered several great goal scoring chances and were narrowly wide from a couple of testing frees. Omagh hung on and refused to give up. Their defence kept them in the contest before a flurry of late points from Ruairi Mc Cullagh (2), Conor Owens and Eoin Mc Elholm saw them turn a two point deficit into a 0-11 to 0-9 win.
