We are three minutes into added time but Strabane just cannot get the ball up the field and Coalisland hold on to win by a single point on a score line of 2-10 to 2-09. A great game of football.

An excellent game of football between two very talented sides and it is still not over but there is a delay following an incident close to the dugouts under the stand.

A two point lead is a dangerous one as a high ball into the Strabane defence is caught by Caoimhin Morgan and he finds the net to put his team a point ahead as the clock turns twenty nine minutes.

26 for 2 Coalisland as Rhys Teague is replaced by Stephen Campbell but Aodhan Devine the Sigersons midfielder eases his side into a two point lead 2-09 to 1-10 with four minutes left on the clock.

Great response from Strabane and Adamh Devine sends over a fine point to edge his side 2-08 to 1-09 ahead as we enter the final seven minutes but Cathaoir Quinn lands a free from twenty metres and the gap is now a single point .

Cormac O’Hagan responds with a good score for Coalisland to narrow the gap and the same player fetches a high ball into the square and finishes it to the net. Less than nine minutes left and it is now 2-07 to 1-09 for Strabane.

A strong run and a fine finish from Mc Grinder puts Strabane two ahead with sixteen minutes of the second half played 1-07 to 0-08 and surprisingly the rain has stopped. A high ball in from Mc Namee is taken by midfielder Aodhan Devine who slots it to the net and the Sigersons now lead 2-07 to 0-08 with twelve minutes on the clock.

Daragh Macauley puts Strabane ahead with the score of the game so far and now the score line reads Strabane 1-06 Coalisland 0-08

8 minutes of the second half played and Kevin Mc Kane lands a fabulous point and the teams are level again.

Cathaoir Quinn is fouled and gets up to convert the resultant free and Coalisland are ahead once again 0-08 to 1-04

A fine team move the length of the field and Mc Grinder strikes the ball between the posts to tie the game up

a fine point with the outside of the foot from Eoghan Farrell in the first minute for Strabane brings the sides level but Quinn responds immediately for Coalisland and the score line reads 0-07 to 1-03 for the Fianna with three minutes now played of the second half.

The teams are out on the field and we await the start of the second half.

All Ireland Scor na nOg champions Edendork Instrumental Musicians provide the half time entertainment and display their fine array of skills to the assembled crowd.

Daragh Macauley narrows the gap to a single point with a fine right footed shot from almost forty metres and as referee Martin Sludden blows the half time whistle the score line reads Coalisland 0-06, Strabane 1-02.

Cathaoir Quinn scores his third point of the first half as Coalisland move two ahead with the clock ticking towards the break.

A high ball in from Haydn Mc Namee spills from the hands of Colm O’Hagan but the ball is cleared by the Fianna defence.

Cathaoir Quinn brings the sides level with a fine left footed point and within a minute Coalisland are 0-05 to 1-01 ahead after a great point from Caoimhin Morgan with 26 minutes played.

A fisted effort by Rhys Teague for Coalisland is turned onto the post by Eunan Harkin the Strabane goals and the Sigersons break up the field to take the lead with a great point from corner forward Kevin Mc Kane : Strabane 1-01, Coalisland 0-03.

Kyle Proctor gets on the end of a fine Fianna move to bring the sides level with 16 minutes of the first half played 1-00 to 0-03.

Rashawn Mc Grinder strikes one from thirty five metres and the ball beats the keeper but comes off the crossbar to the relief of the Coalisland defence.

Thirteen minutes in and number thirteen Adamh Devine capitalises on a mistake by goalkeeper Colm O’Hagan to finish to the net and Strabane now lead 1-00 to 0-02.

Strabane just have not settled and Haydn Mc Namee strikes their second wide of the day with 11 minutes on the clock.

Shea Oliver strikes over a fine individual score after a strong run to put Coalisland two up with 9 minutes on the clock.

Lots of endeavour and commitment but no scores added with seven minutes played.

One minute in and it is 0-01 to no score for Coalisland after a free from Cathaior Quinn
