Coalisland Vs Derrylaughan – 2013 Tyrone GAA Senior Club Championship, First Round

In the last game of the weekend, Coalisland took on neighbours Derrylaughan in the first round of the Tyrone Senior club championship also in Edendork.

Derrylaughan have had a difficult league campaign so far this year in Division 1 and a defeat in this game would definitely have meant relegation to Division 2 football next year. As a result, not many people were giving them much of a chance against Coalisland na Fianna – one of the fore runners for the O’Neill Cup.

Despite that, Kevin Barrys gave Coalisland a decent game in the first half and were very unlucky not to have had scored at least 2 goals only for the quick reactions of Coalisland goalkeeper Johnny Curran. Coalisland did hit the back of the net though in the first half with a strike form Brian Toner. At the break there were only 2 points in it….. Coalisland 1-04 Derrylaughan 0-05.

The game quickly ended as a contest early in the second half when Coalisland struck further goals and points to inflict further misery onto Derrylaughan.

Full time score; Coalisland 4-12 Derrylaughan 0-08.
