In very wet conditions Fintona dominated this encounter. An early goal set them on their way and they had 2-7 on the scoreboard by half-time. Thomas Mc Grath was the target man at full forward but this should not take away from a very good overall team performance. In the second half, Dungannon employed a sweeper in front of Mc Grath but, whilst this lessened the supply to the big man, the other forwards upped their game to prove they could all do the job and most of them got on the scoresheet. In fact, the use of the sweeper by Dungannon gave Nathan Dean a free role which he exploited to the full, charging upfield on several occasions and helping himself to a couple of points. Such was their dominance, Fintona spurned several goal opportunities. Dungannon’s 2nd goal came late in the game. Fintona were sound at the back where Kealan Reid was composed at full back and Killian Mc Cann played with authority at centre half. Conor Mc Goldrick was a tower of strength at midfield and all the forwards can be happy with their performances, despite a few wayward shots in the 2nd half.
