Carrickmore Vs Trillick – 2012 Tyrone GAA Senior Championship

It was nearly 8.45pm by the time the Power NI Tyrone Senior Championship tie between Carrickmore and Trillick got under way on Sunday night, my fourth game of the day.

A late starting time like this and fading natural light doesn’t combine together well for sports photos so I only stayed for the first half of this game. Even photographing in the first half proved a challenge and I had to bump up the ISO on the camera to 3200 to increase the shutter speed and to get a sharp photo (i.e. the players/ball not moving or blurring in the photo). The downside however of increasing the ISO on the camera is that the photos will have a slightly grainy or speckled look to them but there’s nothing you can do.

Back to the football, Trillick were denied a goal in the opening minutes but Martin Penrose soon responded with a point of his own. Finbar Magill and Penrose added more points for Carrickmore as Richard Donnelly scored 2 for Trillick. Not a very inspiring half of football but at HT it was Carrickmore 0-05 to Trillick 0-02.

I hear it was a better game of football in the second half and despite darkness descending on Fintona. Eunan Mc Anespy (no relation) got a key goal for Trillick but Carrickmore held on to win 0-11 to 1-05 and progressed to the Tyrone SFC quarter finals.

Below are photos from the first half…. it was a lot darker than the photos show here!
