Cookstown Fr Rocks made the long journey to Trillick for their opening league clash. The home side looked sharp during the opening ten minutes saw Trillick ahead 2-1 to 1-1 in what was a evenly contested game. Both teams created scoring chances.

Fr. Rocks wasted three one on one goal chances in a row and with each miss Trillick cleared their defense and scored a goal of their own leaving the score at half time Trillick 5-5 to Cookstown 1-5.

Trillick opening the scoring in the second half with Amy McGinn and Mya Williamson leading the charge with piercing runs through the Fr Rocks defense.

But the changes Cookstown made at half time seemed to have worked with Cookstown’s  Kellie Coyle coming on to hit 2-1 in the second half. There was also good forward play by Megan McErlain, and other goals from Amy Sheehy and Taylor Darragh and although Trillick finished the game with 8 goals it could have been more without Sinead Sweaney’s bravery and point blank saves in the Cookstown Goal. Eimear Sweeney, Amy Mc Ginn and Mya Williamson stood out for Trilllick while Ethna Kelly, Siofra Gallagher, Finola Daly and Emma Mc Ginn were also excellent. There was a good second half performance from Cookstown who will rue their missed chances in the first half. Best wishes for a speedy recover to Eabha Coyle of Cookstown who had to receive medical attention after the game and thanks to patrons from both Trillick and Cookstown who provided first aid.
