Loughmacrory Minor Football Team booked their place in the 2014 Grade 2 Minor Football League semi final with a hard-fought win in Moy on Monday evening. This proved a tough physical battle on the day with the half-time scoreline of 0-4 to 0-4 telling it’s own story. Even when Moy were reduced to 14 players following a straight red card for their centre-forward, space remained tight in a small compact pitch.
Nathan Kelly and Shane Dobbs lead the second half charge from the heart of defence but it looked ominous for Loughmacrory when Moy converted a penalty with 12 minutes remaining to open up a 1-07 to 0-07 lead. However a great run from Pauric Meenagh set up Matthew Donnelly for Loughmacrory’s all-important goal and a fantastic late point from Cathal Donaghy ensured that a semi final date in the league was assured.
