Omagh CBS 0-14 0-6 St Patrick’s Academy

Once again Omagh proved too strong for their Tyrone rivals Dungannon Academy with a commanding semi-final victory in the Oisin Mc Grath Shield semi final. Played in a breezy Stewartstown, the Omagh lads were on top in most sectors. The midfield pairing of Fintona duo Paudi Goodman and Peter Colton gave their side a solid platform with Goodman particularly impressive in curtailing the considerable threat of Joel Kerr.

The first quarter was an even enough affair with two Jonah Feeney points for Dungannon matched by points from Aodhan Corry and Cathal Farley. Omagh’s intensity in the tackle was a key feature of the contest and when they broke at pace they generally engineered a scoring opportunity. This was highlighted by Peter Garrity’s first couple of points. The Trillick lad was to finish with five points from play in an excellent individual performance.

As the first half continued Omagh’s dominance increased with scores from Cormac Darcy, Aodhan Corry, Garrity and Colton saw them lead 8-3 at the short whistle.

The second half was played in a similar manner when Feeney  opened the scoring for Dungannon but Omagh regained the ascendancy with scores from Garrity and Farley. Omagh continued to press but were guilty of some poor shot selections. However scores from Peter Garrity and Eoin Donnelly along with points from Colton and Tomas Gallen saw them ease to the final. Joel Kerr and Eoghan McGlone did respond for the Academy but they were well beaten.
