Despite terrible conditions Omagh St Endas collected Tyrones minor
grade two crown on Saturday night at Donnelly park after a 2-6 to
0-6 victory over Trillick. The game originally fixed for Greencastle
was then moved to Loughmacrory before the heavy rain put paid to
the days double header, swift action and Omaghs agreement to play
on their opponents pitch allowed at least this tie to go ahead and
both sides served up an entertaining brand of football despite a
gale force wind and at times torrential rain.

The grade three decider will go ahead this weekend, Cappagh play
Ardboe followed by the grade one final, Aodh Ruadh against An Charraig
Mhor. Back though to last weekends tie and Omagh managed to battle
through to claim the title they last won in 2001, a spirited performance
especially against the breeze left them steer the advantage home
in the second period. Trillick though threatened to run away with
the tie in the first half, they pressed home the wind advantage
scoring three unanswered points, St Endas through Charmaine Gormley
hit back with a point before the advantage was restored with the
Donnellys on target for the home side.

Trillick at times came in swarms at the Omagh defence yet with Christiane
Hunter , Gillian Privott, and Debbie Sloan on form it was a case
of the attacks finally petering out . Just before the break Kelly
O’Sullivan rounded two defenders before finding the net to leave
the sides level at 1-3 to 0-6, the quality full forward hitting
two further points during the half. The breeze continued into the
second half and St Endas began to get to grips with the tie, putting
pressure almost continually on the Trillick defence, at midfield
too Omagh started to dominate with Jenny Scott and Grainne McGale
having a great battle with Sarah Donnelly who was always a constant
threat for Trillick. St Endas dominance was rewarded early in the
second half though with Scott putting the ball to the net again,
Further scores came ffrom O’Sullivan who had a super game scoring
a total of 1-5 while White and the Moynagh sisters also went close
on several occasions.

To be fair to Trillick they never dropped their heads and again
in the closing stages led a fightback, throwing everything into
attack, St Endas though stood firm with Orlagh Kelly on the half
back line outstanding once again. Laura Gormley at corner back sound
and wing half back Leon Murphy as ever up to the mark, Trillick
could not break down the defence and remained scoreless in the second
half , a memorable victory in front of a large crowd for Omagh led
by Ciaran Woods. The cup was handed over by County Vice Chairman
Patsy McCrory who pointed out that both teams had served up a great
game of football in terrible conditions.
