St Pat's and St Ronan's book spots in MacRory Cup semi-finals

By Staff Reporter

Only two of the scheduled Danske Bank MacRory Cup quarter-finals took place over the weekend and there were wins for St Pat's Maghera and St Ronan's Lurgan over Omagh CBS and St Colman's respectively.

Maghera went into their game at Emyvale on Friday night as favourites but they had to come from six points down to record a 2-8 to 1-9 victory.

Omagh led 1-5 to 0-2 by the 23rd minute but Maghera hit back to get on level terms by half time with Shane McGuigan, Conor Glass and Keelan Feeney landing points and Conal Darragh bagging a goal.

Maghera made a great start to the second half with Patrick Quigg getting a goal after points from Glass and Francis Kearney.

They held on despite Omagh scores from Darcy, Eoighain Keenan and Peter McCartan.

The action moved onto Burren with St Ronan's upsetting the odds with a fully merited win over St Colman's. It was 0-5 each at the break but three minutes into the second half Eoghan McDonnell scored a goal for St Colman's and O'Neill followed that up with a point.

St Ronan's though hit back with two scores before a late Kevin McAlinden goal saw them through on a 1-13 to 1-10 score line.
