There were good wins this evening at Omagh for Aghaloo and Strabane in the Hunky Dorys Junior and Intermediate championship first rounds. Aghaloo benefitted from a great start that saw them hit the net twice in the opening eleven minutes of their clash with Fintona. Cathal Cuddy and Tiernan Donnelly were the goal scorers and both players contributed significantly to their win.
Fintona struggled to get to the pace of the game and it was only during the closing minutes of the first half that the Pearses showed any spirit. They landed four points in a row in the final five minutes of the half to give them a fighting chance of a comeback with Thomas Mc Grath prominent.
Although Fintona scored the first point of the second half they failed to establish any second half continuity and Aghaloo hit four unanswered points to regain control. Fintona’s Aaron Mc Carney hit the net twelve minutes from the end but once again it was Aghaloo who reacted most positively sending over five late points to ease to a 2-13 to 1-9 win and a meeting with old rivals Killeeshil in the quarter final.
Strabane’s ability to find the net proved decisive in their first round clash with Pomeroy. Goals from John Mc Laughlin, Michael Etherstone and JP Gallagher in the opening thirty minutes put the Sigersons in a strong position as they reached the break leading 3-03 to 0-5.
Pomeroy made changes for the second half with Stephen Mc Kenna and Frank Burns coming into the forward line. The Plunketts began the half in blistering style with a goal from Mc Kenna and points from Burns and Kieran Mc Geary. They hit 1-2 in less than two minutes and the start really rattled Strabane. However with Warner Mullan in fine form they regained control and restricted Pomeroy to a single point in the remainder of the half. The game ended as a 3-7 to 1-8 win for the North Tyrone outfit who now await the winners of the Eskra v Edendork first round clash in the quarter finals.
