Dromore Vs Ardboe – 2012 Tyrone GAA Senior Championship, Quarter Final

Dromore and Ardboe met in the Tyrone senior football championship quarter finals on Sunday afternoon in O’Neill Park, Dungannon…. I’ve lost count over the past 4 years how many times these two teams have met in the championship but know that Dromore has come out on top on all occasions  (as far as I remember!)

This Sunday was no different and unlike previous years, there was a substantial difference between the teams at the final whistle which was to be somewhat expected. Dromore led from the start of the game and went in with a 8 point lead at HT thanks to scores from Dromore’s Eoin Mc Cusker, Niall Sludden and Cathal Mc Carron.

The second half was something similar to the first except Ardboe were reduced to 14 men after the dismissal if Martin Mc Keown in the 40th minute. Ardboe did get scores from John Mc Conville and Mickey Hagan but again Dromore ace forward Eoin Mc Cusker and Niall Sludden added to the Dromore tally to ensure a 9 point win which safely saw them make the Tyrone SFC semi-finals along with Killyclogher.

Full time score; Dromore 1-15 Ardboe 0-09.
