Eskra Vs Urney – 2012 Tyrone GAA Intermediate Championship, Quarter Final

Eskra Emmetts progressed to the Tyrone IFC semi-finals on Friday night in Healy Park, Omagh after a well earned victory over Urney. Both of these teams were impressive in their first round ties against Stewartstown and Killeeshil respectively and there was never going to be much between them on the scoreboard. In a very low scoring first half, Eskra went in at HT ahead by the smallest of margins on a scoreline of 0-04 to 0-03.

In the second half, both teams had 5 to 10 minute spells of dominance but it was Eskra that converted this dominance into scores with points coming from Rory Marlow, Shane Hackett, Peter Hughes and Ryan Gartland. Urney lost a man towards the end of the second half after a second bookable offence which made their task even more difficult although Johnny Lafferty did score a goal for them in injury time to make it a 3 point defeat for the north-west Tyrone club. Eskra are now only 60 minutes away from making the 2012 Tyrone Intermediate final and I am sure they are relishing the prospect.

Full time score; Eskra 0-14 Urney 1-08.
