Tyrone U14 Grade 4 League Final
Derrylaughan 6-10 Eskra 4-16 AET

If ever two team deserved to go at it again then these two sides definitely do.  Penalties were considered for a few minutes but both sets of managers saw sense and it was agreed that a replay would result.

Normal time produced a rip roaring game with both sides ended up level at 2-5 apiece at the short whistle.  First half Derrylaughan goals from Andre Gervin and Barry McErlean were cancelled out by Eskra majors from Eoin McEvoy and Rory Kinsella.  Caomhain Hughes, Andre Gervin, and Adam Cushnahan added the points for the Kevin Barrys while Matthew McKenna, Rory Kinsella and Finn Kelly got the points for Eskra.

After the break both sides went toe to toe in another excellent half of football most noted for the excellent goalkeeping of Aidan Hackett in the Eskra goals.  Two Derrylaughan goals via Adam Cushnahan and Barry McErlean keep the scoreboard moving for the Kevin Barrys while Caomhain Hughes added another point from play.  Eskra had no goal during this period but they got points from Finn Kelly, Rory Kinsella, Lorcan Meegan and Eoin McEvoy to finish the half on terms 2-12 to 4-6.

Durin extra time Eskra looked the more likely team to win the game thanks mainly to goals from Finn Kelly and Lorcan Meegan.  Derylaughan kept going though and majors from Adam Cushnahan and Barry McErlean hauled them back into the game once again.  Eskra point from Eoin McEvoy and Rory Kinsella almost saw them over the line but it wasn’t to be as Derrylaughan split the posts four times thanks to Adre Gervin and Barry McErlain.
