Wednesday night’s replay double header drew a large crowd to Newtownstewart but resulted in two somewhat surprisingly one sided games.

The opening fixture saw Dregish run out comfortable winners over a disappointing Glenelly side that failed to match the greater intensity and hunger of their opponents. Glenelly got off to the perfect start with an early Barry Mc Connell goal but that score merely stung Dregish into action. Points from Aidan and Niall O’Kane and Ronan Glackin soon had Dregish in front and when Peter Mc Crossan’s goal put Dregish five ahead the writing was on the wall for Glenelly.

Further points from Paul O’Kane, Johnny Doherty and Aidan O’Kane saw Dregish reach the half time break seven points in front and in a very commanding position.

A couple of early scores from Aidan O’Kane and Marty Bonner extended the Pearse Og’s lead and although Seamus Harkin and Michael Nicholas replied for Glenelly they failed to make any significant impact on the gap between the sides and Dregish eased to a deserved 1-14 to 1-7 win.

The second game of the evening was expected to be a closely fought encounter between two well matched sides. However that did not materialise as Gortin dominated from the off with Kevin Mossey, Diarmaid Mc Nulty, Ruairi Keenan and Shane Clarke ensuring the St Patrick’s made it through to the quarter finals of the Intermediate Championship.

Ronan Mc Hugh opened the scoring on the night with an early Aghyaran point but that was as good as it got for the St Davogs as Mossey and Mc Nulty ran their defence ragged. Gortin reached the break leading 1-5 to 0-1 and could have been even further ahead had Diarmaid Mc Nulty not spurned a superb chance of a second goal just before half time.

However that glaring miss did not prove too costly as Gortin added three second half goals and a further five points to run out convincing 4-10 to 1-6 winners. Their goals on the night came from Diarmaid Mc Nulty [2], Gavin Treanor and Eoghan Mc Garvey while county man Ronan Mc Namee bagged a late consolation score for a below par Aghyaran side.
