The Drumquin versus Carrickmore match was rather late getting under way tonight but it was the home side that made the better start as they landed two fine points in the opening two minutes with Peter Tierney getting one of them. However that was as good as it got for Carmen because from then until the twentieth minute the Wolfe Tones hit 4-4 without reply. Paul Sheridan opened their account with a point in the eighth minute and then over the next seven minutes they hit three goals through Ryan Mc Crossan, Benny Gormley and a penalty from Ryan Mc Callion in the fifteenth minute. Three points followed from Ryan Mc Callion 0-2 and Jamesy Winters before the same player struck for his side’s fourth goal of the half. Carrickmore scored the final two points of the opening thirty minutes but Drumquin looked good value for a win as they led 4-4 to 0-4 at the break.
However as often happens after such a good start Drumquin failed to capitalise on their territorial superiority and ran up eighteen wides over the hour. Indeed Carrickmore outscored them 1-4 to 1-3 in the second half but the gap proved too big for the home side and when Ryan Mc Callion’s free was fumbled into the net in the twentieth minute any hopes of a comeback disappeared. Carrickmore found the net themselves in the twenty fifth minute from Conor McAleer with county minor captain Jonathan Munroe getting a couple of points as well but it was too little too late and the game finished in a 5-7 to 1-8 win for Drumquin.
