Gortin Vs Galbally – 2012 Tyrone GAA Intermediate Championship, Quarter Final Replay

Five days after Galbally and Gortin drew in the Tyrone Intermediate Championship quarter finals, they met again in Healy Park to see who would progress into the semi-finals. Galbally lost the influential Mickey Murphy and Paul Rafferty in the first game through injury and their absence from the starting fifteen was undoubtedly an advantage to  Gortin.

In another low scoring encounter, neither team managed to score any goals (although there were opportunities) and each side had to rely on scores from free kicks, 45s and points from play.

Gortin’s Ruairi Keenan, Kevin Mossey, Shane Clarke and Diarmuid  Mc Nulty worked very hard all night while Kieron Mc Crory, Martin Brannigan and Damien Mc Crory kept Galbally in with a real fighting chance.  Gortin led at the break by 0-04 to 0-03 and again were the slightly better side in the second half. Galbally’s Mickey Murphy and Paul Rafferty did make an appearance in the final 7 minutes but by this stage it was too late as Gortin progressed onto the Intermediate championship semi-finals against Eskra.

Full time score; Gortin 0-08 Galbally 0-06.
