Plunketts, Kildress, Aghaloo And Owen Roes March Into Minor League Finals
Pomeroy are through to the grade one minor league final following an excellent 1-12 to 0-7 win over Errigal Ciaran at Galbally on Monday evening. The Plunketts laid the foundations for their win in the first half when they established a 1-7 to 0-3 interval lead with Brendan Burns getting their goal. Francis Burns top scored for the winners with half a dozen points to his name while their other marksmen on the night were Brendan Burns [1-1], Michael Mills , John Loughran , James Quinn  and Kieran McGeary . Mark Kavanagh , Michael McCann , Niall Quinn  and Sean McKenna  were the scorers for the Dunmoyle based lads. Pomeroy will play the winners of Dromore and Naomh Mhuire in the decider, that second semi final taking place at Pomeroy on Tuesday evening with a seven o’clock throw in.
Kildress did not allow the change of venue or the quality of their opponents to stand in their way tonight as they overcame Trillick in their Grade Two minor league semi final at Tattyreagh. The Wolfe Tones had established a seven point lead at the break leading 2-5 to 0-4 as they produced a very dominant first half display. They added a third goal in the second half with their majors coming from county minor star Connor Mc Aleer with two and one from Johnny Mc Kenna. The young Reds did mount a sustained second half comeback showing admirable spirit and skill but Kildress held out to win a good game of competitive football 3-10 to 2-7. Lee Brennan top scored with 1-4 for Trillick while Daire Gallagher and Ruairi Brennan were among their point scorers on a night when they just came up short.
Aghaloo had six points to spare in their Grade Three minor league semi final over Brackaville this evening in a high scoring and entertaining game which finished 3-14 to 3-8 in favour of Aghaloo. The winners were well served by Jason Mulgrew in goals, Gary O’Gorman and John Gorley in defence, midfielder Padraig Mc Geary and attackers Kevin O’Gorman, Conor Mullan and Peter Mc Cormack. They will now face Owen Roes in the final who overcame a gallant Urney side in the other semi final.
Owen Roes led Urney 1-6 to 0-2 early on in the first half with Ryan McShane (0-3), Fergal McNulty (0-2), Ryan Devine (0-1) and Cathal McShane (1-0) on target. However Urney regained their composure and were back in it by half time with 5 points, but further points from Stephen Harper, Cathal McShane and Ricky Devine plus a Seamus Dooher goal kept Roes’ noses in front at the break. The half time score was Owen Roes 2-9, Urney 0-8.
Any hopes of an Urney comeback disappeared early in the second half as Owen Roes dominated the game and hit 3-6 before Urney eventually scored sending over their only two points of the second period. Owen Roes second half goals came from Seamus Dooher, Ryan Devine and Fergal McNulty.
