Carrickmore Vs Coalisland – 2013 Tyrone GAA Senior Club Championship, Quarter Final

Seven days after they played their opening game of the Tyrone SFC against Cookstown Fr Rocks, Carrickmore were in action again in Healy Park against Coalisland na Fianna who enjoyed an easy opening round victory over Derrylaughan two weeks ago. This tie was a repeat of the 2009 Tyrone SFC final tie in which Coalisland eased to victory but that was 4 years ago and both sides have changed a fair bit since then.

Carrickmore started strongly and a quick free kick in the opening 15 minutes found Martin Penrose who was able to take the ball around the Coalisland goalkeeper and hit the back of the net. A huge error between the Coalisland defence and goalie resulted in a second Carrickmore goal when Conor Gormley slapped down Johnny Curran’s attempted clearance and fisted the ball into the net. Coalisland had the chance to narrow the gap before HT but Plunkett Kane’s penalty strike was saved by Oz Mc Callan. At half time, Carmen were comfortably ahead 2-04 to 0-03.

The second half saw the introduction of Coalisland’s Stephen Mc Nally who caused huge problems in the Carmen defence and a Coalisland goal came 2 minutes into the half. The Fianna continued to press and added on a couple more points and then referee Martin Sludden awarded another Coalisland penalty – this time Gerard Toner converted the spot kick to leave it 2-05 apiece. As the minutes counted down, it looked as if the game may be heading to a replay but Carmen added 2 points either side of injury time from Martin Penrose and Caolan Daly to claim the victory….. a brilliant come back from Coalisland but they left themselves with a little too much work to do especially after losing a man in the first half to a straight red card offence.

Full time score; Carrickmore 2-08 Coalisland 2-06.
