Moortown St Malachy’s are back in the Grade 1 Tyrone Minor Championship final after an incredible game of football in Stewartstown on Thursday night.  The loughshore lads fought back from seven points down with eighteen minutes left on the clock to force extra time.  Moortown started brightly and were 0-4 to 0-3 up inside fifteen minutes thanks to points from Conan McLernon, Ronan Conlon and Shane McKeown while Daniel Kerr and Mark Donnelly were on target for the Pearses.  Galbally got to grips with the game after that and points from Mark Donnelly, Liam Rafferty and Conor Donnelly had them 0-7 to 0-5 ahead at half time.

After the break Moortown clawed themselves back into the contest with Jack McGuigan, Conan McLernon and James Devlin all getting on the scoreline to edge them a point ahead, 0-8 to 0-7.  Seconds after that Devlin point Galbally’s Daniel Kerr won a penalty and the Pearses full forward slotted the spot kick to the net.  Kerr added another point and Mark Donnelly eased the lead out to four before Daniel Kerr got on the end of a long ball into the box and off the crossbar to fist the ball to the net.  At this point Galbally were seven points ahead with 18 minutes to go.

Moortown however dominated the next ten minutes.  Firstly Conan McLernon kicked a free, then Shane McKeown converted a penalty.  Three more points from Conan and Ryan McLernon had Moortown back level.  A James Devlin free looked to have put Moortown clear but Patrick Quinn kicked the final score of the game to force extra time.

The opening period of extra time was a cagey affair with only a three points shared between the two sides.  Galbally led at the break by a point thanks to scores from Niall McKenna and Mark Donnelly.  Two Conan McLernon frees in the second period was enough to ease Moortown into a second final in two years.  Final Score – Moortown 1-16 Galbally 2-12
