Tattyreagh and Moy made it through to the semi finals of the Ulster Club Series on Sunday at Healy Park when they both got the better of their Monaghan opponents.

The Tatts defeated Currin in a highly entertaining game that saw the winners hit three goals in a very impressive display. The Tyrone champions started well with scores from Jarlath Mc Donagh, Gareth Mimnagh and Johnny Harkin to establish an early 0-3 to 0-1 lead. However they were rocked back on their heels when veteran Currin midfielder Dick Clerkin broke from midfield to finish to the net in the seventh minute of the game.

Tattyreagh continued to battle hard and James Darcy landed three fine points to keep his side in the game before an inch perfect pass to Jarlath Mc Donagh saw the young forward finished coolly to the net. Darcy added three further points while Jack Mc Carron landed a fine brace of scores for Currin as an entertaining first half drew to a close with Tattyreagh leading 1-9 to 1-6.

The second half was even more entertaining as firstly the Monaghan side looked dominant before Tattyreagh regained their composure and finished strongly. A Stephen Smyth goal put Currin in control with ten minutes of the second half gone. Tattyreagh responded positively with a superb goal from Eoghan Murray. Darcy and Mc Carron swapped points twice more but with the game delicately balanced defender Brendan Armstrong popped up with 1-1 in injury time to see the Tatts home.

Final score: Tattyreagh 3-14, Currin 2-12.

Meanwhile Moy recovered from a slow start that saw them fall three behind early on to scores from Sean Downey and Staphen Gallogly (2) to defeat a highly rated Carrickmacross side 0-9 to 1-5.

In addition to the slow start the Tyrone side had to cope with the loss of Tom Loughran after ten minutes but they hit five points without reply to move ahead. Harry Loughran, Aidan Currie, Sean Cavanagh and Ryan Coleman got the scores that gave the Tyrone champions the boost they needed as half time approached. Gallogly and Currie swapped scores just before the half time whistle to send Moy in at the break 0-6 to 0-4 in front.

The second half saw Moy defend deeply at times as Carrickmacross went in search of scores. However all they had to show for their endeavours was a goal and a point. They hit nine second half wides and missed several great chances including a last minute opportunity that came off the post. Moy rode their luck at times but when required Sean and Colm Cavanagh, Ryan Coleman and Harry Loughran provided the leadership that was needed. It was Loughran and Sean Cavanagh who hit the all important scores that saw them take the win.
