Sunday’s double header at Newtownstewart attracted a huge crowd and served up two highly competitive matches before Killeeshil edged past Castlederg and Glenelly saw off the challenge of local rivals Clan Na nGael.

The Killeeshil v Castlederg game was a tight affair with the teams level four times in the opening half. Both teams looked edgy early on as passes went astray and scoring chances were missed.

Packie Mc Mullan opened the scoring for Killeeshil before Tomas Hoy added a second. Points from Sean Harper, Mark Corry and the industrious Brian Coyle had Castlederg in front before a Michael O’Neill score levelled the game again with fifteen minutes gone.

Three minutes later and the Derg hit the net with a fine finish from Ronan Devine. Unfortunately for the Derg they failed to score again until sixteen minutes into the second half.

Killeeshil enjoyed lots of possession as they scored the final three points of the first half and the opening four points of the second. Pascal Donaghy, Michael O’Neill, Tomas Hoy and Packie Mc Mullan on target for Paudie Quinn’s side.

Castlederg struggled to create scoring chances but with fourteen minutes remaining they narrowed the gap to three with a point from Paddy Lynch. Mark Corry reduced the deficit to two but a superb Pascal Donaghy pointed free eased Killeeshil nerves. They were further relieved when goalkeeper Ciaran Reilly pulled off a superb point blank save from Bradley Devine. Mark Corry did add a final score for the Derg but it wasn’t the goal they required and Killeeshil ran out deserved 0-11 to 1-6 winners.

The second game of the double header was a north Tyrone derby clash between Glenelly and CNG.

Ronan O’Kane got Glenelly up and running with the opening point which was quickly cancelled out by a Gareth Mc Dermott effort. O’Kane pointed again before Aodhan Mc Connell hit the net to put Glenelly four clear.

CNG worked hard to get themselves back into the game  but they were further rocked when Aodhan and Cormac Mc Connell got goals numbers two and three for their team. Glenelly looked like they would head in at the break ten clear but CNG narrowed the gap with a fantastic goal from the fist of Aaron Devine.

CNG came out for the second half fired up and hit three of the first four points of the half. A goal from Joe Ball narrowed the gap to four points but that was as good as it got for them. Glenelly stepped on the gas and outscored their neighbours eight points to one to book a place in the quarter finals on a score line of 3-17 to 2-9. Ronan O’Kane, Seamus Harkin, Cormac, Aodhan and Barry Mc Connell were all among the scorers for the winners.
