Killeeshil Vs Teconnaught – 2013 Ulster GAA Junior Club Championship Quarter Final

Tyrone JFC champions Killeeshil progressed to the Ulster club championship quarter finals with a very narrow victory over Down champions Teconnaught in Newry early on Sunday afternoon.

Killeeshil surged into a 0-06 to 0-01 lead after 15 minutes with scores coming from Gary Reilly, Ciaran O’Neill, Shane Mallon and Rory McCann. However a considerable 30 minute dry patch followed from the Tyrone champions and Teconnaught gradually chipped down the hoops lead to only one point at HT.

Things got worse in the second half for Killeeshil when they conceded a penalty but goalkeeper Ciaran Reilly produced a great save which undoubtedly kept the balance with Killeeshil and was a turning point in the game. Great work from Kevin Hub Hughes for Killeeshil in midfield set up Shane Mallon for a converted free kick mid-way through the second half  followed by a point from Packie McMullan and another score from Mallon as the more experienced players saw the game out and Killeeshil progressed to the Ulster JFC semi finals in 2 weeks time against Donegal champions Milford.

Full time score; Killeeshil 0-11 Teconnaught 0-09.
