Killyclougher triumph amidst red-card flurry

By Declan Bogue

Killyclogher scored a sensational win over Dromore in last night's Tyrone county semi-final, winning 0-13 to 0-12, with two sent off for Dromore in the first quarter.

The second semi-final is in Pomeroy at 5pm on Sunday, Coalisland facing Trillick.

Mayobridge had four sent off in their 2-9 to 1-7 defeat to Kilcoo in the Down semi-final.

The Magpies now face the winners of Sunday's tie between surprise packages Ballyholland - going for their first final appearance - and Castlewellan (Sunday, Pairc Esler, 7pm). Meanwhile, Ballycran and Ballygalget are in the hurling decider on Sunday, the game taking place in Portaferry at 3pm.

Slaughtneil continue their defence of their Derry and Ulster club titles this Sunday when they face Bellaghy in Owenbeg.

Mickey Moran's side played Ballinascreen last Tuesday night, defeating them on the unusual scoreline of 0-6 to 0-3, but now face former manager John Rafferty, in charge of Bellaghy.

In the other semi-final, 2013 Ulster club champions Ballinderry are up against Coleraine and are expected to prevail.

In Armagh, Crossmaglen have the chance of getting to their 19th final in 20 years when they take on Maghery in Saturday night's headliner in the Athletic Grounds, 7.45pm. They will of course be without the mercurial Jamie Clarke, whose footballing future remains very much uncertain. Their opponents will bring a threat in the trio of Forkers in the forward line; Aidan, Stefan and Paul.

The other semi-final is Armagh Harps against Ballymacnab at the earlier throw-in time of 5.45pm, with the City side expected to advance.
