Junior Semi Final Draw Made.
The draw has been made for the semi finals of the Power NI Junior championship and it has thrown up two mouth watering ties. Interestingly the two winners from the double header at Omagh on Friday night Brackaville and Brocagh have been drawn to face each other in one semi while Sunday’s winners Aghaloo and Glenelly will meet in the second semi.
Aghaloo were deserving winners over Newtownstewart at Dunmoyle following a very determined second half display where corner forward Kevin O’Gorman and full forward Stevie Donnelly showed their worth. Glenelly emerged victorious over a gallant Tattyreagh side at Greencastle but were made fight all the way for their narrow win. The Tatts finished the game with thirteen players but produced a fantastic second half to almost snatch the game at the end. Corner forward Mark Darcy went for goal when a point would have taken the game to extra time and his effort was brilliantly blocked by Ruairi Mc Garvey ensuring Glenelly made it through to the last four.
The junior championship has thrown up some great games so far this year and these last four pairings are sure to continue that trend. Brackaville will go into the semi as favourites but Brocagh’s championship pedigree will make it a game worthy of the final itself. Aghaloo have a great championship pedigree and are finding form at just the right time. They are facing a youthful and enthusiastic Glenelly side playing with a great deal of confidence who will relish the chance of going toe to toe with their more experienced opponents.
Two potentially great games lie in store but with so much at stake rarely do semi finals live up to their billing. Hopefully both these matches deliver on their promise and if they do we will be in for a real treat.
