Augher Vs Dungannon (U21 Grade 2 Final)

On Sunday past, Fr Hackett Park in Augher was the venue for the final two games of gaelic football for me in 2011 as the Under 21 Grade 1 and 2 finals double header took place.

It’s been a long year since the first GAA match of 2011 (which took place in very sad circumstances in January when Tyrone met Donegal in Edendork) and since then I have been up and down the country following Tyrone and also the Tyrone clubs so it’s nice to get a month’s break, especially when the temperatures drop down to this low!

The first game on Sunday saw home side Augher take on Dungannon Clarkes. It was very much a game of two contrasting halves as Dungannon played some good football in the first half and should have been further ahead than the 0-07 to 0-05 lead they had at the break.

However, the second half saw a complete turnaround in the game as Augher completely dominated and prevented the Clarkes from scoring at all. Augher on the other hand managed to tally up 3-10 in the second half leaving a final scoreline; Augher 3-15 Dungannon 0-07.

It was a joyous occasion for my neighbouring parish following their defeat in the final last year and the boys thoroughly deserved it.
