The one remaining All County League Division One semi final took place at Killyclogher on Sunday in front of a large, vocal crowd that saw Trillick run out deserving winners on a score line of 2-8 to 1-10.
It took the county champions a while to get to the pace of the game as Mark Bradley helped put his side two ahead. The Reds eventually shook off their early lethargy and reached the break 0-4 to 0-3 ahead. However they had a price to pay for that lead with Richard Donnelly having to leave the field injured while Daniel Donnelly received a straight red card.
The second half saw Trillick sit deep and attack on the counter. Points from James Garrity and Liam Gray stretched their lead to three before the returning Simon Garrity marked his first game of the season for Trillick with a goal. Points from Mark Bradley and Conal Mc Cann kept Killyclogher in touch before another pacy counter attack was finished to the net by Liam Gray to put his side seven clear.
The game seemed done and dusted at that stage before the home side threw off the shackles and hit 1-3 without reply to leave two between them. Points from Michael Rafferty, Ben Armstrong and Danny Gorman and a goal from Oisin Mc Cann ensured it would be a tight finish. A converted Lee Brennan free gave Trillick breathing space and they held on to make it through to the league final in spite of a late push from Killyclogher which yielded a single point.
