Vital League Wins For Trillick, Omagh and Derrylaughan
Trillick made the long run to Eglish today but came away with the points winning 2-11 to 2-7 and will probably wonder how they ended up winning only by four points. They led at half time 2-6 to 1-2 after goals from Niall and Shane Gormley and points from Kevin Mc Caughey and Richard Donnelly. Gregory Jordan had a goal for the home side but Trillick looked to be in total control in the opening thirty minutes. Eglish did mount something of a comeback in the second period but Trillick were never in danger as Richard Donnelly continued his fine form. The Reds did finish the game with fourteen men and although there were late points from Ryan Mc Kenna and Conall Mc Nulty and a penalty goal from Kieran Jordan Trillick held on to win deservingly.
Omagh enjoyed a thirteen point victory over fellow strugglers Moy at Healy Park this afternoon in a game that finished 2-18 to 1-8. The home side were in dominant form throughout and by half time had built up a commanding 2-7 to 0-5 lead with their goals coming from former county minor stars Shane O’Neill and Cathal Mc Carron. Moy were struggling to create chances but Peter Mallon and Ryan Mellon were on target for the light blues in that period. Omagh continued to play well in the second half and Mc Carron, O’Neill and Michael Gallagher were on target for their side as they eased to a win that will move them away from the bottom of the table. A late Hugo Jordan goal and points from Eunan Deeney and Mark Jordan were all Moy had to show for their second half endeavours.
Moortown and Derrylaughan served up a high scoring, action packed game this afternoon that finished in a three point win for the visitors Derrylaughan on a score of 2-14 to 2-11. Moortown had dominated the opening half and were given the perfect start with a goal and a couple of points from Michael Hagan. However Liam Gervin responded with a goal of his own for the Kevin Barrys to bring them briefly back into the game. But Moortown turned on the style for the remainder of the half to lead at the break with a goal from Lee Kelly that left the score 2-9 to 1-4.
Derrylaughan needed a big second half and that is exactly what they got. A second Gervin goal and points from Shea Coney, Ryan O’Neill and Ciaran Quinn saw them home by three points at the end in what was a thoroughly entertaining game of football between two very committed but evenly matched sides. The result gives Derrylaughan some breathing space in the lower half of the table but leaves Moortown worryingly close to the basement.
