McGuigan lands a late blow to level for Ardboe

By Gareth Cauldwell

Tommy McGuigan landed a sublime sideline ball with virtually the last kick of the game as Ardboe snatched a draw from their meeting with Trillick in Pomeroy in the Tyrone Senior Football Championship.

A low scoring contest saw Trillick lead 0-03 to 0-01 at half-time and when they stretched that to 0-07 to 0-02 midway through the second half, with Lee Brennan and Niall Gormley among the points, they appeared to be on their way through to the last eight.

However, Ardboe responded and McGuigan held his nerve at the death to give his side a second bite at the cherry.

Augher booked their place in the quarter-final with a convincing 4-10 to 0-10 victory over Donaghmore in Loughmacrory on Saturday night.

The St Macaratans got off to a flying start when Aidan Cassidy found the back of the Donaghmore net inside the opening minute and at the break they held a three point advantage.

And a slick moving Augher side put the game to bed in the second half as they added goals from Conor Hackett, Daire Kavanagh and Dara Donnelly to run out 12 point victors.

Coalisland came through their meeting with Derrylaughan, the game finishing 4-12 to 0-08.

A Brian Toner goal saw Coalisland lead 1-04 to 0-05 at the break and Gerard Toner twice found the net in the second half while Plunkett Kane scored Coalisland's other goal.

Meanwhile, in Fermanagh, Roslea will play Belcoo in the final after they both progressed through their respective semis.

Roslea secured their spot with a 2-11 to 1-08 win over Ederney.

Shane Lynch fired to the net in the first half as Roslea went on at the break leading 1-06 to 0-04.

And when Seamus Quigley bagged a second goal for Roslea in the second half it put them eight ahead and in complete control.

Meanwhile, Belcoo had a 1-09 to 0-09 win over Derrygonnelly last night.

Johnny Feeley's 41st minute goal put Belcoo into a 1-05 to 0-06 lead and they managed to push on from there to set up a clash with Roslea.
