Omagh Vs Clonoe – 2012 Tyrone GAA Senior Championship (Replay)

Omagh and Clonoe met again on Sunday in Dunmoyle, seven days after they drew in the first round of the Tyrone Senior football championship. Many felt that Omagh missed their chance of knocking out Clonoe last Sunday and that the Rahillys wouldn’t make the same mistakes again but that wasn’t the case as Omagh St Endas defied the odds and defeated Clonoe 0-10 to 0-09 and set up a quarter final tie against Errial Ciaran.

Like last weekend, Clonoe started strongly and cruised into a 4 point lead after 15 minutes with scores coming from the two Ryan O’Neills, Connor Mc Aliskey and Collie Doris. Conan Grugan was the first Omagh man on the score sheet followed by Shane O’Neill and Barry Tierney. Clonoe went in with a 0-05 to 0-03 lead at HT …… not a great half of football by any means.

There were very few scores in the second half and as the light faded, Omagh gradually moved ahead thanks to scores from Conan Grugan, Conor O’Donnell and Paddy Doherty. Clonoe were unlucky not to have scored a goal or two but still kept within touching distance with a point from Mc Aliskey. Omagh however carried a 3 point advantage with them into the 6 minutes injury time and this was soon cut down to 1 point after scores from Coney and Mc Aliskey. As tempers began to flare on the field, referee Jerome Mc Elroy sent off Joe Mc Mahon and Conor Starrs (Omagh) and Shane Coney (Clonoe) for an off the ball incident…… Omagh held on though and as the clock approached the ninth minute of injury time, Jerome sounded the whistle to indicate that after 130 minutes + of championship football, Omagh St Endas were the victors.
