Friday night’s Donnelly Motors Intermediate championship double header in Omagh drew a sizeable crowd to Healy Park for two eagerly anticipated games. The opening clash between Urney and Galbally resulted in a Johnny Lafferty inspired Urney side easily accounting for a disappointing Pearses side easing to a 0-15 to 0-6 victory.

A lack of confidence in front of goal cost Galbally dearly as they failed to make the most of their early chances and possession.   Sadly for the men in blue an unsighted referee meant they did not get the rub of the green early in the second half when a foot-block on the line denied them a certain goal. At the time they trailed by four points and the boost of a goal then would surely have given them and their self belief the shot in the arm they needed.

James Lennon opened the scoring inside the first minute but Galbally lacked composure in front of goal from then on. Playing largely on the counter attack Urney responded well to lead 0-5 to 0-1 after thirteen minutes. Johnny Lafferty, Plunkett Langan and Fergal Mc Nulty were all on target as the North Tyrone men made the most of their early chances.

With the clock ticking towards the break Urney extended their lead to seven points following some controlled counter attacking play that saw further scores from Lafferty, Langan and Stephen Lafferty. Things looked bleak for Galbally but they struck something of a purple patch adding three points in injury time to send them in at the break trailing 0-9 to 0-5.

The second half failed to inspire as a well organised Urney side controlled the ball and denied their opponents time and space on the ball. Galbally added one point in a very disappointing second half but Urney were never seriously threatened and they eased through to the final adding six second half points to win 0-15 to 0-6.

Indeed the only real threat to Urey’s superiority all evening was second half failure of the Healy Park lighting that saw the end of the match delayed by almost twenty minutes.
