Enda the hero as Killyman record long-awaited JFC win

A GOAL midway through the second half from Enda McGahan gave Killyman the impetus that they needed to record a first Junior championship victory for seven years.

The St Mary’s eventually edged out Clann Na nGael by 1-15 to 0-13 in a thrilling tie at Carrickmore.

But it was a tough task for them, as they trailed by 0-5 to 0-1 during the early stages. However, they kept pressure, had reduced the deficit down to just a point by half-time and forged ahead at just the right time.

Clann Na nGael contributed richly to a highly entertaining encounter, although the best efforts of Danny Ball, Shea Browne and Gareth McDermott fell just short.

In the opening game at Carrickmore it was Brocagh who emerged comfortable winners over Drumquin.

The Emmetts, who won the Junior title 40 years ago in 1981, led by 0-12 to 0-2 at half-time and a goal from Owen Canavan shortly after the restart put the game beyond reach.

Matthew McDermott and James O’Kane got goals for Drumquin, but they never really threatened and a second goal from James McKiver saw Brocagh emerge winners by 2-14 to 2-6.
