Carrickmore Vs Clonoe

The second game of Sunday afternoon was another replay in the Tyrone SFC quarter final and another East Tyrone Vs West Tyrone tie.

The first half was a drab enough affair with a lot of scores coming from free kicks and virtually neither team breaking through each other’s defence for even a sniff of a goal opportunity. Half time; Clonoe 0-05 Carrickmore 0-03.

The second half continued much the same way until the 50th minute when scores from Carmen’s Mark Donnelly and Brendan Martin levelled the scoreboard at 0-07 each. In injury time, Clonoe had the opportunity to finish the game with a score-able free but it fell short and the game went into extra time.

After a bright start in the first period, Carrickmore found themselves 0-09 to 0-08 down following points from Patrick Doris and Stephen Mc Nulty. In the second period, the 80 minutes of football began to take their toll on some Carrickmore players and cramp set in. Clonoe finished strongly in the second period and came out 0-11 to 0-08 winners.

Clonoe captain, Ciaran Lynch, leads his players onto the field. I used my wide lens for this photo and kept the camera close to ground level to get the best effect from it.
