Holy Trinity Cookstown are through to the Danske Bank Rafferty Cup final after edging past St.Pats Armagh at Eglish in a superb contest that required extra time to decide. The winners looked to be well in control at the break as goals from Tiernan Mackle and Shea Quinn helped them establish a 2-5 to 1-2 advantage.

Armagh, with Eglish’s Michael McGleenan to the fore, hit 2-2 without reply on the restart to get their noses in front. It was nip and tuck throughout the second half with the free taking of Mark Devlin keeping Holy Trinity in touch. It was the Armagh school who scored a late equaliser to take the contest to extra time.

McGleenan put St.Pats in front in the first period but another Devlin score ensured that it was all square at the break again. McGleenan put Armagh back in front on the resumption but a superb Jamie Coleman point levelled matters before Jamie Bloomer was the hero for Holy Trinity with the winning score with the last kick of the game as it finished 2-14 to 3-10. Holy Trinity play St.Pats Keady in the final at the end of next week. Before that however Holy Trinity have the final of the Oisin McGrath Shield to play when they face St.Marys Belfast in Ardboe on Monday afternoon at 1-15.
