McCarry on hand to fire Scotstown into semis

The introduction of Wolves trainee goalkeeper Aaron McCarry was the ace card played by Scotstown at Shaw’s Road, as last year’s beaten finalists progressed to the semi-finals following a 2-11, 0-13 victory over Creggan (Antrim).

McCarry was gifted the decisive goal in extra-time.

Scotstown went ahead with a Paul Sherlock goal. Damian McLarnon levelled and at the break Creggan were 0-7 to 1-3 ahead.

Points by McLarnon stretched the Saffrons’ lead. Three points levelled the game at 1-8 to 0-11. In extra-time, Creggan scored one point as Scotstown chalked up 1-3 with McCarry netting. Hugh McNulty grabbed a point for the losers.

Meanwhile, the Armagh Harps 2-13 Killann Gaels 2-4 scoreline in the Ulster MF Tournament preliminary round game at Rossa Pitch doesn’t tell the tale of the action. The Harps had shot into a 2-7 to 0-0 lead with Patrick McCoy snatching both goals.

At half-time, Harps were 2-9 to 0-1 ahead and they added three more points in the second half. Gaels replied with goals by Stephen Donnery and Deono O’Reilly.
