McGourty is the hero as slick St Gall's stride into seventh heaven


St Gall's gave Antrim football another shot in the arm by winning the prestigious Kilmacud Sevens competition at the weekend.

Having beaten Leixlip and Carbury in the quarter-final and semi-final respectively, St Gall's went into the final certainly feeling their exertions.

Yet they showed considerable reserves of stamina and commitment to beat the Dublin club 3-2 in a penalty shoot-out with Kieran McGourty landing the all-important winning goal.

The match had ended at 3-6 to 1-12 but,Kevin Niblock's stellar display, highlighted by a 1-8 return, meant that St Gall's finished on level terms.

Meanwhile, the Tyrone senior football championship is building towards a tremendous climax now that the semi-final stage has been reached.

Dromore, who last won the county crown in 2011, will face Killyclogher in the last four, while Coalisland, who lifted the title in 2010, will face Clonoe who reigned supreme in 2013 under present manager Damian Cassidy.
