Defending champions Clonoe are safely through to the semi-final of the U21 Championship but they didn’t get things all their own way tonight against Dromore at O’Rahilly Park.  Clonoe were 1-8 to 0-2 ahead at one point during the first half. The home side led 1-8 to 1-3 at the break thanks to a goal from Aaron Elliot and points from Darryl Magee, Fintan McClure and Eamon Duffin.  Ruairi Sludden kicked all of Dromore’s scores during that period recovering well after missing an easy free early on to convert a penalty before the break.  In the second half it was all Dromore as they cut into the Clonoe lead. Points from Sludden, Colm McRory, Peter Teague and second half substitute Jack Poyntz brought them to within a point.  Indeed they could have won the game were it not for the excellent free taking of Darryl Magee and a superb point blank save from Tommy Martin late on.  Final Score – Clonoe 1-12 Dromore 1-10

Omagh coasted to a 3-17 to 0-11 win over Kildress on Tuesday evening at Healy Park in the quarter final of the under 21 knockout. There was little between the sides on the score board until Omagh bagged the first of their three goals twenty minutes into the first half when midfielder Micky Flanagan finished off a fine team move to put Omagh 1-4 to 0-3 in front. Ruairi Mc Bride added two further points before Cormac O’Neill scored his team’s second goal which effectively ended the game as a contest. The home team added four further points to reach the break leading 2-10 to 0-3.  Kildress came out in the second half more committed and much improved with Eoin Brannigan, Gavin Curry and Colm Loughran asking questions of the Omagh defence. However Kieran Mc Laughlin and Darren Mc Menamin ensured there was to be no miraculous comeback from the Wolfe Tones and Micky Gallagher’s goal on sixty minutes completed the scoring and a facile win for St Endas. Final score Omagh St Endas 3-17, Kildress 0-11.

Errigal Ciaran made home advantage count against Coalisland at Dunmoyle.  The hosts led 0-11 to 0-5 at halftime with Mark Kavanagh scoring four points and Sean McKenna, Micheal McCann, Eoin Kelly, Sean McGirr, Fintan Kelly and Paudge McAnenly [2] also on target.  McAnenly added another three points after the break with Fintan Kelly weighing in with the other 1-2 as they made it through to the last four on a 1-16 to 0-11 scoreline.

Tyrone minor captain Conor McKenna finished top scorer for Eglish as they eased to victory at Father Laurence Park against Fintona. Tommy McGrath got three points for the Pearses with Caolan Reid their other scorer on the night.  Tommy Mullin [1-4], Sean McGoldrick [0-4], Stephen Murphy [1-0], Sean McGale [0-2], Tommy Murphy [0-2], Gareth McGrath [0-1] and Barry Fitzgerald were the Drumragh scorers as they beat Killeeshil 2-14 to 1-9.

Donaghmore were in fine scoring form as they had an emphatic victory over Clann na Gael at Father Devlin Park.  Sean McCaul got a couple of goals with Aidan McCloskey, Deasun Quinn, Peter McKenna and Marcus Mulgrew all featuring on the scoresheet as they won with plenty to spare.
