Loughmacrory made the trip to play Clogher on Wednesday evening in a rearranged division two encounter and the St.Theresas came out on top in a cracking encounter to remain unbeaten and just a point off the pace at the summit of the league table.

Points from Pauraic Meenagh and Cathal Donaghy put the visitors into an early lead before the Eire Ogs enjoyed a purple patch. Conor Shields, Mattie Callaghan and Ryan McCaughey had points either side of a punched goal from full forward Fergal McKenna as they established a 1-4 to 0-3 lead. They failed to score for the remainder of the first half though as Loughmacrory hit back to reduce the deficit to the minimum thanks to efforts from Donaghy and Meenagh (2).

The opening score of the second half proved to be a goal when Leo Meenan first times the ball to the net and Cathaoir Gallagher and Donaghy tagged on points as Loughmacrory turned things around to lead by four. McKenna and Gallagher swapped points before the superb Donaghy scored again to leave his side five clear.

At that stage it looked all over but Clogher had other ideas as they produced a spirited comeback. Michael McCaughey, Marc McConnell and Callaghan all registered before an outstanding effort from out on the left wing from Marc Bogue left it 1-10 to 1-9 with less than ten minutes left on the clock. Loughmacrory though sensed the danger and a Gallagher point was followed by a second major from Meenan when he palmed the ball to the net from close range.

Meenan and McKenna exchanged points before Donaghy left six between them. Clogher though still weren’t finished and a goal from Marc Tierney was followed by a brace of points from fellow midfielder Conor Shields to leave everything up for grabs again. Loughmacrory though finished the stronger with Gallagher and midfielder Shane Grimes both raising white flags as it finished 2-15 to 2-12.
