Even the most ardent Kildress supporter must have been surprised at the facile nature of their victory over a seriously under performing Urney side at Killyclogher on Sunday afternoon. The Wolfe Tones began sharply and by half time were out of sight leading by fourteen points.

Conor Quinn opened the scoring for Kildress after three minutes but Jamie Mc Aleer responded for Urney to tie the game. Mattie Mc Guigan found the net for his team’s first goal and Caolan Mc Namee added a point immediately after to put the Tones 1-3 to 0-1 in front. Points from Mc Guigan and Shea Murphy stretched the Kildress lead with nine minutes on the clock and even at that early stage the signs were not looking good for Urney.

Kildress were playing with great confidence and swarming forward at every opportunity. They created two further goal chances inside the opening fifteen minutes which were converted by Mc Guigan and Shea Murphy. Points from Johnny Lafferty and Mc Aleer gave Urney brief respite before Kildress hit the net for a fourth goal when Caolan Mc Namee rounded off a fine team move to put his team 4-5 to 0-3 ahead.

The Wolfe Tones were first to every ball and defensively they gave little away. Callum Holland, Dean Mc Nally and Martin Loughran were outstanding for their team while Des Tracey, Enda Mc Aleer and Philip Lennon were relentless in their pursuit of the ball. Their forward line created space and chances aplenty and the Urney defence found them difficult to control all afternoon. Jake Lafferty raised Urney’s hopes briefly with a goal but with half time approaching Shea Murphy swept over a forty five and Kildress reached the break leading 4-9 to 1-4.

The second half saw Kildress continue to dominate and when Des Tracey pulled one from the sky before landing a superb point there was going to be no way back for Urney. Kildress added further points from Stephen Loughran, Mattie Mc Guigan, Philip Lennon and sub Adam Connolly as they eased to a 5-22 to 1-8 win. Stephen Loughran got on the end of a fine passing movement to finish off the scoring for Kildress with his team’s fifth goal on the stroke of full time.
