Omagh CBS 3-9 St Ronan’s Lurgan 1-10

Omagh CBS started their MacRory Cup campaign on Thursday afternoon with a hard fought win over the defending champions St Ronan’s.

The Tyrone lads began impressively hitting the net three times in the opening half with goals from Sean Mc Donagh (2) and Mark Hayes. Defensively they coped well with an out of sorts Lurgan attack restricting their opponents to only four points over the course of the first thirty minutes.

However the reigning champions improved considerably after the break and could have snatched the win late on but missed a couple of glorious goal chances which proved decisive.

Odhran Grimes saved brilliantly from a well struck James McCormick penalty while the Lurgan forward snatched at a goal chance late in the game which could have turned the match in favour of the Lurgan lads.

Omagh had to withstand an excellent second half comeback from St Ronan’s but finished the game with a brace of late points from the impressive Aidan McConnell to seal the victory for the Tyrone school.

Omagh CBS : Sean McDonagh (2-1), Mark Hayes (1-1), Aidan McConnell (0-3), Liam Gray (0-3), Eoin Montgomery (0-1).
