Revenge so sweet for Killyclogher with Tyrone title now prime goal

Tyrone senior football

Patience is a virtue and it certainly brought its own rewards for Killyclogher last night when they defeated Trillick 2-10 to 1-9 in an absorbing Tyrone Championship quarter-final at Pomeroy.

Trillick proved the masters when the sides met in last year's county final but on this occasion Dominic Corrigan's team brought new levels of intensity and desire to the table.

Goals from Emmett McFadden and Fergal Meenagh to which Mark Bradley added three points secured Killyclogher's imposing 2-6 to 0-4 interval lead and although Trillick responded after the break, Lee Brennan's goal arrived too late to influence the outcome of the match.

Meanwhile, the talented Sludden family certainly made a big impact in Dromore's handsome 3-9 to 1-8 quarter-final win over Ardboe.

Niall was a playmaker of true quality but it was Ruairi who did the ultimate damage by scoring two goals.

And Clonoe showed they still possess plenty of drive and energy by beating Omagh St Enda's by 2-8 to 1-9.
