Junior Football Championship

Edendork 2-5 Trillick 4-9

Stewartstown 1-2 Rock 4-11

Beragh 1-5 Moy 2-11

Trillick, Moy and Rock advanced to the quarter finals of the junior football championship as a busy week of championship football continued in the County. Louise Mc Carney bagged a hat-trick of goals as Trillick eased past Edendork at Augher. County defender Emma Brennan set the wheels in motion with the Reds first attack when she fired home a goal as the ball was worked forward straight from the throw in. Maeve Maxwell hit a first half goal for the St Malachy’s.

3-6 to 1-3 up at the break Trillick kept the scoreboard ticking over in the second half with Dearbhle Gallagher, Shannon Gray and Brennan tagging on points with McCarney completing her hat trick. Edendork rallied through the second half but Edel Gray and Cathy Donnelly were assured at the back. Brennan exceptional through the middle, indeed she was unlucky not to add to her first half goal late on.

Rock were too strong for a youthful Stewartstown while Moy turned up the heat in the second half to get past a very hardworking Beragh at Carrickmore. It finished 2-11 to 1-5 as Moy upped the tempo.

The remaining preliminary game in the junior grade between Castlederg and Clonoe is set for Killyclogher on Sunday evening at 8pm.

Intermediate Football Championship

Cappagh 3-6  Fr Rocks 2-13

As expected the fixture of the prelims produced an exceptional game of football at Plunkett Park this week with division two league leaders Fr Rocks living up to their favourites tag as they edged out Cappagh. The Ballinamullan girls made no secret of the fact that they had an eye on a league and championship double and produced a sterling display in this tie.

The Cookstown side led 2-9 to 2-2 by the break, Annie Nugent and Emma Coyle with the Fr Rocks goals, yet as Aoibhinn Devlin also tagged on points it was Cappagh who played some great second half football. The Cappagh goals, a brace from Aishling Porter and Terri McCusker kept them in touch and as the tie wore on there was little between the teams.

Clodagh Poyntz, county minor Caitlin Kelly and Donna Donnelly closed the gap with points while Noleen Garland had an excellent outing at the back. Fr Rocks were wasteful at times with several scoring chances sent wide. Laura McGillion went close although at the other end Caoimhe Meeke made several fine saves and Lauren McCrory defended well to deny Cappagh as the Cookstown side progressed.

Donaghmore 5-16  Dromore 1-8

St Patrick’s progressed to a quarter final in the Intermediate championship and a meeting with Aghyaran without much resistance from a Dromore side who were well off the pace at Pairc Colmcille. Rebecca McCrory hit an excellent 1-8 for Donaghmore who turned in a very controlled performance over the hour although they were rarely troubled.

To their credit though the St Dympna’s tried hard to unlock a well drilled Donaghmore defence. Shauna McNabb was excellent and Emma Smyth hit six points for the Gardrum Park outfit although Aishing Hegarty, McCrory, Emma Hegarty and Nicola McCrystal were all on top form for Donaghmore.

Helen McAleer and McCrory scored first half goals with scoring contributions over the thirty minutes from Emma Hegarty, Ashley Colton and Beth Moore. Donaghmore led 2-12 to 1-3 by half time, McNabb with the Dromore goal and despite plenty of commitment from Dromore in the second half they could not reel St Patricks in.

Moore, Hegarty and Lynn McCrory added further goals as the game headed to its inevitable conclusion.
