U13 Week 3 Wrap Up (TTM wish to thank the club managers for supporting the match reports)
Galbally made it three wins out of three when they got the better of neighbours Rock away from home. It was the home side though who started the brighter scoring three goals in the opening minutes of the contest with the midfield pairing of Joel Kerr and Callum Hughes to the fore. The Pearses began to come into the game and they only trailed by three points at the interval. Goals from Tiernan Corrigan, Finbarr Quinn and Patrick Jordan put Galbally in front and despite the efforts of Joel and Alfie Kerr it was the visitors who came out on top with Marcus McLoughlin and Ciaran McCloskey playing well in their defence.
Urney had a good win over Errigal Ciaran in Grade 4. Eight different players were on the scoresheet for the St.Columbas with Aodhan Callaghan outstanding in goals for the winners with Oisin Sweeney and Kieran Conway also playing well.
Clonoe proved too strong for Kildress at Gortacladdy. Conor Taggart, Eoin Ferguson and Dylan Dooris were among the goals for the O’Rahillys with Eunan Shields, Ben O’Neill, Jack O’Neill and Feidhlim O’Hagan all weighing in with points as well.
A late Brian Og McGuckin goal proved to be the difference as Eglish overcame Dungannon in a highly competitive and enjoyable game at Pairc Cormac. The home side led 1-7 to 1-2 at the break with Matthew Daly bagging the goal and a few points with McGuckin also on target, Michael Harper with the Dungannon goal. An early second half McGuckin goal put Eglish eight in front but the Clarkes put up a spirited comeback with Eoin Rodgers finding the net and Senan McCann, Conn O’Donnell and Sean Og O’Donnell tagging on points to reduce the deficit to the minimum. It was anybody’s game at this stage until that late McGuckin major decided the outcome on a 3-10 to 2-10 scoreline.
Omagh B managed to edge out Aghyaran on a 4-7 to 3-6 scoreline. It was 2-2 each at the break but a strong start to the second half from Omagh saw them score two goals to establish a lead that they were never to lose. Charlie Byrne 2-1, Proinsias McElhill 1-3, Adam Baird and Daithi McHugh were the scorers for the St.Davogs.
Moortown battled gamely against Killeeshil before their opponents pulled away in the second half. Best for the St.Malachys were Emmet Kelly, Timmy Kelly and Oisin McVeigh.
Trillick got the better of Omagh in a high scoring encounter at Donnelly Park. Aodhan Corry, Daniel McGurren, Conor Corry and Niall McCann featured among the scorers for the St.Macartans with Oran McCarney, Conor O’Reilly, Dara Burns and Ronan McAnulla among the marksmen for the St.Endas.
Tattyreagh defeated Carrickmore B by five points in a very competitive and entertaining game. It was a close encounter throughout with the winners pulling away with good scores from Cormac Darcy and Tristan McKnight.
Errigal Ciaran registered their first win when they defeated Cookstown 2-11 to 1-8. The winners led 1-5 to 1-3 at halftime thanks to a goal from Jamie Martin and points from Conan Canavan. Canavan got their second goal after the break and some well worked team scores helped Errigal Ciaran secure victory.
Donaghmore lost out to Ardboe in a competitive game with Jude Rafferty, Charlie Field and Dara O’Neill best for the St.Patricks on the day.
