Fintona are grade three minor league champions after denying neighbours Tattyreagh the double in a highly entertaining decider at Drumragh on Thursday evening. The sides were locked together 1-6 each at the break with Mark McGlinn, Reece Partington, TJ Richards, James Darcy and Johnny Harkin among the points for their respective teams with Cathal Starrs finding the net for the Pearses and John McAleer grabbing a major at the other end of the field. Eoghan Murray put Tattyreagh in front in the opening attack of the second half but Starrs levelled matters before McGlinn put the winners in front. Sonny McDonagh then edged them two in front before a McGlinn free from out on the right wing sailed all the way to the net with nine minutes to go. Murray and Eoghan Keenan traded points and with five minutes to go the former palmed in a goal to set up a thrilling finish. Fintona weren’t to be denied though and in injury time McDonagh won a penalty which he converted himself as it finished 3-11 to 2-9.
