Emma Conroy’s seven points helped ease Moy into the quarter finals of the intermediate championship. Although well beaten on the night Aghyaran did have chances though but failed to capitalise on them.
Moy impressed all over the park with Caoimhe Magee, Emer Currie and Charlotte Mackin outstanding Fr their team. Aoibhinn Mc Hugh was the pick of the Aghyaran side but a red card for full forward Tara Mc Hugh in the second half made things even more challenging for the north Tyrone side.
Moy settled quickly and points in the opening ten minutes from Conroy (0-3) and Emer Currie put them in control but two cracking runs from Mc Hugh opened up the Moy defence as she sent over two points.
Moy goalkeeper O’Hanlon denied Tara Mc Hugh with a fine stop while Currie added points and Conroy was also on target. The East Tyrone side led 8-3 at the break as Sasha Byrne came off the bench to score Aghyaran’s third point and add impetus to their attack despite not being 100% fit.
Another Mc Hugh goal opportunity was stopped by O’Hanlon on the restart as Moy continued to boss proceedings withLucy Mc Alary and Conroy adding points. Byrne pulled a point back for Aghyaran while Mc Hugh carried the ball well and there were some quality passages of play from Laura Maguire as they battled to stay in the contest but it was a case of too little too late and Moy can now look forward to a clash with Omagh in the next round.

Tyrone Junior Football Championship Preliminary Round
Tattyreagh St Patricks 0-5
Castlederg St Eugene’s 2-8
Castlederg made it through to the quarter finals of the junior football championship as they eased to a convincing win against a gallant Tattyreagh at Newtownstewart on Thursday. Leading by six points at the break the St Eugene’s kept their opponents at arm’s length throughout and were good value for their win.
Amelia Coyle and Leah Mc Menamin were in top form for their team playing some outstanding football with a first half goal helping to put them in pole position. Credit to Tattyreagh they battled hard throughout and at times worked the ball into good attacking positions but they could not breech a well organised Derg hitting just three first half points.
Castlederg continued to dominate after the break the second half scoring a further 1-5 and keeping their opponents under pressure. Tattyreagh needed to make a good start to the second half and did press but found the Castlederg goalkeeper equal to the challenge. Shannon Lynch was an excellent play maker and a second goal, Coyle with a rocket, sealed the win.
Marice Harper, Mc Menamin and Lynch added points as they claimed a spot in the next round.
