Loughmacrory Vs Killyman

Sunday afternoon saw the first of four Tyrone club championship games that I would attend in one day. O’Neill Park, home of Dungannon Thomas Clarkes, was the venue for the Tyrone Intermediate Championship tie between Loughmacrory and last year’s Junior champions, Killyman. It was a fine afternoon for football although an extra layer of clothing is a must  for photographing football matches for the rest of 2011.

Underdogs Killyman started strongly and went into a  0-04 to 0-01 lead after 10 minutes. But the men from Loughmacrory soon found their gear and went in at half time 1-06 to 0-05 …….. and to further add to the Killyman woes, they were reduced to 14 men after Sean Donnelly picked up a second booking.

Loughmacrory’s control in the second half continued as it finished at the end of the first as Stephen Donaghy scored two goals to effectively the game as a contest although Killyman did score a late consolation goal. Final score; Loughmacrory 3-11 Killyman 1-10.

Here are some images from the game.
