Holy Trinity overcame a slow start at An Port Mor today to secure a place in the semi final of The Markey Cup when they came from 1-1 to no score down after seven minutes to beat Ballybay Community College 3-15 to 1-8. The Cookstown lads looked nervy early on but once they settled to the task they produced an excellent team performance where every player contributed manfully. Having come back from four points down they were level by the twentieth minute and warmed to the task as the game went on. By half time they led by double scores 2-6 to 1-3 with a major each from full forward Danny Mc Nulty and Declan Mc Clure.
Clonoe man Mc Nulty led the line well and finished up with a fine personal tally of 2-6 but this was no one man show. The good work of the opening thirty minutes was continued after the break and Kieran Mc Geary, Barry Potter and Declan Coyle worked tirelessly for the cause.
This result means that Holy Trinity will now face old rivals St. Ciaran’s in the semi final of the competition. There is a possibility of three Tyrone teams making the semi finals with last year’s beaten finalists Dungannon taking on Donegal side Carrick in the last quarter final which is due to take place next week in Ballybofey.
