Drumquin are through to the quarter finals of the Power NI Junior championship after an impressive 1-12 to 0-8 victory over Errigal Ciaran Thirds. Below is how the action panned out at Killyclogher this evening.

Errigal Ciaran Thirds are playing with the wind and they are 0-2 to 0-1 up after five minutes. Emmett Quinn opened the scoring after only thirty seconds and after Eamon Teague levelled matters midfielder James Harte put the Dunmoyle based men back in front. The Wolfe Tones then began to get on top with Adrian McCanney and Ryan McCallion getting points either side of a punched goal from Benny Gormley in the 10th minute to leave them 1-3 to 0-2 ahead.

Ronan Tierney reduced the deficit and Errigal Ciaran then had a great chance to level the match but Mattie Harte put a goal chance wide of the target. Drumquin made good their escape and two quick fire points in the 18th and 19th minutes from McCallion and Teague sees them estbalish a 1-5 to 0-3 advantage.

Five minutes before the interval and Tierney points for Errigal. Drumquin though are looking the stronger side and frees from Paul Sheridan and Frank McAlynn [2] leave them 1-8 to 0-5 ahead at the break, Peter Loughran on target for Errigal from play in between those scores.

Eight minutes into the second half and there has been only one further score to report with former county player Eoin Gormley landing a point for Errigal Ciaran Thirds. The Dunmoyle based side have lifted their game and a sucessful free from the trusty left boot of Michael Harte narrows the deficit to four after ten minutes. Errigal continue to press and at the three quarter mark there is only a score between the sides after Gormley hits his second point of the night. Ten minutes left to play and Errigal had a chance to level matters but Tierney fumbles the ball when there was a chance of a goal. It takes Drumquin twenty three minutes to open their second half account with McAlynn converting a free. They go on to dominate the closing stages though with scores from substitute Damian Aiken, Sheridan and McCallion to run out 1-12 to 0-8 winners.
