The double bill in Pomeroy on Saturday evening resulted in wins for Urney and Carrickmore over Cookstown and Derrylaughan respectively.

 

Urney had the wind at their backs in the first half but a three point lead didn’t look sufficient. Full forward Jamie McAleer was in outstanding form throughout the game and he notched five points in the opening period with Johnny Lafferty weighing in with an outstanding effort with the outside of his boot from the left wing. Danny McElhatton had a brace for the Father Rocks with James McGahan also on target, all three of their first half scores coming from play. Cookstown were also dealt a blow in that first half when they lost centre half forward Nathan Connolly to a serious leg injury.

 

In the second half Urney were always able to keep their opponents at arms length with McAleer finishing with 0-8 to his name with all but one of that tally coming from play. It was far from a one man show for the St.Columbas with Johnny Lafferty. Ryan Henry, Adrian Maxwell and Fergal McNulty to the fore as well. McGahan and John Gilmore had second half frees for Cookstown but a brilliant Martin Murray point from the left wing was all that they had to show from play over the course of the sixty odd minutes as it finished 0-10 to 0-7.

 

The second game at Plunkett Park saw the Srt.Colmcilles send out a real statement as they eased to a double scores win over the Kevin Barrys, 2-22 to 1-11. It was a very impressive display from the winners as a side with a mixture of youth and experience proved too strong for the Loughshore men. Carrickmore were well on their way to victory by the break as they made good use of the wind to establish a healthy 0-12 to 0-4 advantage.

 

Ciaran Daly, Barry Daly and Martin Penrose posted a number of points between them with Tiernan Murray also on target. Ciaran Quinn had opened the scoring for Derrylaughan but that was as good as it got for them. Gavin Corr, Fergal McAliskey and Quinn were their other first half marksmen in a period that saw both sides reduced to fourteen men in the 12th minute when Sean Robinson and Murray were dismissed.

 

There was no let up from the winners on the restart with the outstanding Penrose and the Dalys adding points. Defenders Ruairi Slane, Michael Donaghy and the superb Sean Loughran all posted points as well with Conor Cuddy coming off the bench to get a late brace. Penrose showed all his class to bury a 33rd minute goal while the influential Mark Donnelly set a goal on a plate for Rory Grimes at the end of the third quarter. McAliskey and James Donnelly had points for Derrylaughan with Shea Coney getting a late consolation goal but it was all over by that stage.
