This afternoon’s double header of championship football saw two intriguing games in Pomeroy which resulted in victories for parish neighbours Loughmacrory and Carrickmore. Loughmacrory set the ball rolling with a three point win over a gallant Tattyreagh team that battled right to the end before losing out 0-16 to 2-7. The Tatts got off to the perfect start with a goal from Mark Darcy inside the opening minute and by the third minute they were 1-2 to no score in front with Conor Taggart and Darcy nicking points.
Loughmacrory took a while to settle playing into the breeze in the opening half but with Ronan Ward in good form and Benny Donaghy chipping in the Loch scored the last four points of the half to draw level at the break 0-7 to 1-4. They began the second half well scoring five of the next six points and twelve minutes in they were 0-12 to 1-5 ahead. A fine individual goal from Chris Mc Carroll gave Tattyreagh hope but when Colin Harkin received a second yellow the game was up for the Tatts and Loughmacrory advanced to a meeting with the winners of Sunday’s semi final clash between Killeeshil and Killyman.
Carrickmore and Moy served up a high paced and riveting game of championship football before the Carmen lads’ ability to plunder goals finally proved the difference. Moy started the game really well with Sean and Colm Cavanagh along with Ryan Mellon taking the game to their more illustrious opponents. Moy were hoping to make their first senior final in over fifty years and were well in the game until Martin Penrose capitalised on a mistake in the Moy defence just before the break and buried his shot to the back of the net. Half time score 1-5 to 0-4 for Carrickmore.
That score gave Carrickmore a barely deserved four point lead but Moy refused to buckle and Sean Cavanagh’s accuracy from distance took his team to within a point of Carrickmore with eleven minutes to go. However when needed most Carrickmore’s experience and quality came to the surface. Colm Mc Gurk, Mark Donnelly, Micky Donaghy and Martin Penrose held firm at the back while a twentieth minute goal from Donnelly effectively ended the game as a contest. A third goal from Paul Mc Aleer on the stroke of full time sealed the win and Carmen made it a championship double for the parish of Termonmaguirc.
