Tyrone champions Eire Óg are through to the Leadon sponsored Ulster Minor Hurling Tournament final after an extra time victory over Bredagh of Down in the semi final on a score line of 1-15 to 2-7.
There was little between the teams in a very competitive game. However with Aidan Woods in fine form the Tyrone champions looked set for a place in the final as they led by three points with time almost up. Unfortunately for Eire Óg as often happens, a late goal meant the game went to extra time. A well struck free from Bredagh centre back Rory Mc Camphill found its way to the net asking huge questions of the Carrickmore based team.
Eire Óg came out for extra time fired up and worked hard to restrict the Down champions to a single point during that twenty minute period while they themselves added six points to their tally.
Aidan Woods top scored for the winners with 0-13 of his team’s total while Francey Hurson got the all important goal. A point apiece from Daithi Mc Ilhatton and Conor Kerr completed the scoring for the Tyrone champions.
That win now sets up a final with Antrim champions Loughgeil Shamrocks on Saturday January 7th.
