Edendork Vs Brackaville – 2013 Tyrone GAA ACL Division 2

The 2013 Hunky Dorys Tyrone ACL finally got under way on Sunday after a length break over the winter period. For the opening club game of the season, I went to the Division 2 tie between Edendork and Brackaville….. last year’s Tyrone Junior champions Brackaville and relegated 2012 Division 1 side Edendork finally meeting each other after many years.

Edendork got off to the perfect start when their corner forward David Toner struck the back of the net after 5 minutes but Brackaville gradually edged their way in thanks to the boot of Ciaran Gervin and Che O’Donnell to leave Brackaville 1-03 to 0-07 up at HT.

The home side played well in the opening period of the second half but were wasteful in front of the posts with too many shots wide of the target. Scores from Niall Morgan, Toner and Karl McGuckin did however put them into the lead for a short time but they gradually found themselves on the wrong side of referee Martin Sludden’s whistle.  This allowed Brackaville to keep a foot in the game and as full time approached, a chipped in free inside the box allowed Brackaville’s Che O’Donnell to scramble the ball into the net and secure a draw….. probably a fair result over the whole game.

Full time score; Edendork 1-08 Brackaville 1-08.
