Fintona Pearses pitch has never looked better than it did today as it played host to the Hunk Dorys Junior championship quarter finals between Killeeshil and Aghaloo and Loughmacrory and Owen Roes in bright autumn sunshine. The local derby meeting of Aghaloo and Killeeshil remained in the balance right up until the end before the experienced duo Gary Reilly and Shane Mallon for Killeeshil stepped up to the mark and delivered the crucial scores to edge Seamus Mc Callan’s side home. Mind you a Killeeshil win did not look likely at half time as Aghaloo in spite of being down to fourteen men led by four with Kevy O’Gorman, Tiarnan Donnelly and Brian Mc Kenna all showing well for their team.
Killeeshil began the second half well with a goal from Rory Mc Cann and moved in front following a score from Mallon. However Aghaloo refused to buckle and team captain Gerard Daly put them ahead with a fine score midway through the second period. Killeeshil introduced Kevin Hughes and his presence aided by the scoring ability of Mallon and Reilly and fine goalkeeping from Conall Donnelly saw Killeeshil land the last three points to win 1-13 to 0-14. This victory sees them through to a semi final clash with Killyman next weekend.
The second game of the day was won by pre match favourites Loughmacrory 1-10 to 1-7 but once again they were made fight all the way by a determined opponent in Owen Roes. The Leckpatrick lads were well in the game trailing by two points when they were harshly reduced to fourteen men after Brendan Boggs received a second yellow card before half time. A Niall Grimes goal put Loughmacrory six points in front with five minutes to go to the break but Owen Roes found the net themselves right on the stroke of half time through Ronan Mc Nulty to give his team hope for the second period.
The second half produced a tetchy affair with lots of niggly play but Loughmacrory found Owen Roes very difficult opponents to shake off. In spite of being a man down Owen Roes continued to carry the game to the favourites and following a point from midfielder Charles O’Doherty on fifty two minutes they hard reduced the gap between the sides to a single point. However that was as good as it got for the men in red and green and late points from Ronan Ward and Kevin Collins saw Loughmacrory qualify for a semi final clash with Tattyreagh next weekend on a final score of 1-10 to 1-7.
