Final score from Celtic Park Derrytresk 2-11 Doire Trasna 0-07

Shane Kelly picks up a yellow card and the resultant free is is converted by Callan again and Carrick will go through to the next round on the strength of the 0-11 to 0-08 result.

Derrytresk’s goal came from Micky Rea.

Callan with a free hits Carrick’s seventh point in a row and they lead by two with 30 minutes played. It looks like it is all over for Kildress.

Carrick take the lead with a fine point from Gallogly from out wide on the right. Two minutes left and Kildress trail by one. Meanwhile Derrytresk hit the net in Derry to lead 1-09 to 0-06.

Gavin Tracey replaces Paul Tracey on the Kildress team

Mark Downey brings the sides level when it looked like a free out to Kildress. There are only seven minutes remaining. Meanwhile in Derry Derrytresk lead 0-09 to 0-06 and Doire trasna down to fourteen men.

That man Callan again has narrowed it to a point with a fine shot off his left foot. The sending off is stretching Kildress big time and they badly need to regain their composure and create a score.

Andrew Callan knocks over another point for Carrick to reduce the deficit to two points. there are twelve minutes plus injury time left to pay and momentum is very much with the Monaghan champions.

Same player again with a fine free from out on the left narrows the gap to three. It is a serious test of pluck and courage for these remaining fifteen minutes for the Tyrone champions.

14 minutes in and a rushed free from kildress is intercepted and converted by Stephen Gallogly for Carrickmacross first score of the second half. 0-08 to 0-04.

Omagh and Lisnaskea are all square in Clones.

Matthew Heagney shows remarkable composure to knock over point number 8 for kildress while behind him back up the pitch there was a pushing and shoving session which referee Walsh is now sorting out. 9 mins in and it is 0-08 to 0-03 for Kildress. Two yellow cards for Carrickmacross and a red for Peter Hagan of Kildress means they are really up against it.

Paul Tracey replaces Martin Grimes on the Kildress team.

Meanwhile in the ladies game it is now 1-03 to 1-01 for omagh after a goal from sharon Little for Lisnaskea.

Referee Walsh awards a free in to Kildress for an illegal hand pass and Frank Mc Gurk converts the free as Kildress now lead 0-07 to 0-03 with 5 mins gone.

A lively start to the second half as both sides enjoy good possession and chances but two minutes in there is no change to the scoreline.

Both teams are back on the pitch and Kildress face the breeze in the second half attacking the town goals. No changes on the Carrickmacross side or the Kildress team.

7 minutes gone in Clones and Omagh St Endas Ladies lead Lisnaskea 0-02 to 0-01. Omagh goal from Hayley Ballard in the 13 th minute.

Derrytresk scorers so far Michael Robinson 0-01, Niall Gavin 0-03, Micky Rea 0-02, Joe Mc Kee 0-01

Meanwhile Derrytresk now lead 0-07 to 0-02 at the break against Doire Trasna in Derry City. So far so good from a Tyrone point of view. We will attempt to find out how Omagh Ladies are doing before the second half of this one gets under way.

The half time whistle sounds and Kildress will feel reasonably happy with what they have produced so far in the first half. They were slow to settle but have got to the pace of the game and look dangerous every time they get the ball forward. Frank Mc Gurk in particular has been a real nuisance to the Carrickmacross defence. Half time score Kildress 0-06 , Carrickmacross 0-03.

Des has a long range effort as the clock ticks towards the break but this one is narrowly wide and he follows it up with a wide from play. 31 minutes on the clock.

Peter Hagan is hauled to the ground just short of the 13 metre line and Des Tracey will have another opportunity to extend his team’s lead. He makes no mistake this time and with 28 minutes on the clock Kildress lead 0-06  to 0-03.

Derrytresk are leading three points to one after fifteen minutes in Celtic Park.

22 minutes gone and Callan misses with a forty metre free. Score remains 0-05 to 0-03 in favour of Kildress and they have a chance to extend the lead with a Des Tracey free which misses narrowly.

Matthew Heagney comes on in the 20th minute for Phillip Lennon , first change of the day from Kildress.

19 minutes and a fine pass from Peter Hagan puts Des Tracey free and  with a neat finish the captain moves his side two ahead.

The score of the game on fifteen minutes from Damien Kelly out wide on the left puts Kildress 2 ahead but Carrick respond with a fine point of their own from full forward Mark Downey. 0-04 to 0-03 17 minutes on the clock.

A great move from Kildress the length of the pitch finishes up with a narrow miss from Martin Grimes but the Tyrone are playing better now.

First yellow card of the day goes to Niall Quinn of Kildress and Des Treacy puts the Wolfe Tones ahead for the first time with a fine free from forty metres. 0-03 to 0-02

Frank Mc Gurk is fouled and picks himself up to knock over a fabulous point from all of forty metres out on the right. All square again with 11 minutes on the clock.

8 minutes in and a fine long range shot from Gary Mc Eneany puts the Monaghan men 0-02 to 0-01 ahead.

Kildress mount their first serious attack four minutes in but Martin Grimes shot just misses on the right. Luckily they convert almost immediately with a long range shot from Paul Mc Gurk. 5 mins gone and it is a point each.

A first minute free from Andy Callan put Carrick one up.

Healy Park as always is in fine shape and any concerns about the pitch being able to accomodate both matches today have disappeared. the teams are taking up positions with Kildress shooting towards the Gortin or Country side in the first half.

Both teams are on the field in their unfamiliar county colours with Kildress wearing the Tyrone away strip of red shirts and white shorts. Carrickmacross, who look a very physical side, are wearing the Monaghan away colours. Referee for the day is Gregory Walsh of Antrim.
