Big week of football action for Naomh Treasa + latest news
Great win for Loughmacrory seniors over Derrylaughan
The mid summer break concluded as Loughmacrory seniors got back to winning ways at home to Derrylaughan on Sunday with an industrious one point victory. Both sides had to endure very tough conditions, with persistent heavy rain and strong winds, but produced an entertaining contest with Loughmacrory’s movement and tenacious tackling proving decisive in the end. After conceding an early goal, Loughmacrory took a grip on the game and lead by 0-7 to 1-1 but the visitors added a second goal before the break. St. Teresa’s played some excellent football into the wind in the second period and a well taken fisted goal from Pauric Meenagh, a superbly finished goal from Niall Grimes and a brilliant move and excellent score from Shane Dobbs saw Loughmacrory lead by four entering injury time. A fortuitous scrappy goal from the Kevin Barry’s in the third minute of injury time left a nervous finish to the game but Loughmacrory maintained their composure for a very good one point victory, 2-9 to 3-5.
Next up for Loughmacrory will be a home tie against Rock St. Patrick’s next Sunday (2nd August) with reserves at 2.15 and seniors at 3.45pm.

Tough one point defeat in Minor Final for Loughmacrory…
At minor level the season came to a close in dramatic fashion on Friday evening in Eskra when Loughmacrory lost by just a solitary point to Aghaloo in the Minor Grade 3 Championship final. The club had shown solid form in the series and had a good win over minor grade 3 league champions, Trillick, in the championship semi final. The team enjoyed a great start in the game and lead by eight points at a stage in the opening half before going in at the half-time break with a five point advantage, 2-8 to 2-3, Cathaoir Gallagher having scored 2-4 in that period.
However, Loughmacrory were reduced to 12 players (13-a-side-match) early in the second period and that altered the tie significantly as Aghaloo went six in front with goals from McElroy before Cathair Gallagher and then Conall Grimes added gaols for Loughmacrory to leave the teams level entering injury time. That late score then from McGlone was enough to see Aghaloo claim the title on a 5-11 to 4-13 scoreline.
The second half saw a big comeback for Aghaloo with Jody McGlone at midfield and Niall McElroy in the full forward causing major problems for Loughmacrory. However, what followed was a truly rip-roaring end to end game in which Aghaloo firstly went six points ahead before two goals for the St. Teresa’s saw the teams level again with two minutes to go. McElroy in particular finished out the game with 4-7 for Aghaloo and the winning point came in injury time for McGlone. It was a tough end to a fantastic game for Loughmacrory, as the club were actually bidding for a first ever minor championship success. Loughmacrory’s scorers on the night were Cathaoir Gallagher (3-6), Conall Grimes (1-2), Cormac Harte (0-2), Aidan Donaghy (0-2), Colm Logue (0-1).
Under 16 team face Carrickmore and Cappagh this week…
The Boys U-16 footballers are scheduled to have two home games in the coming week, following two opening round matches away. The team are competing in Grade 1 at under 16 level in 2015 and got off to a great start against Newtownstewart away in round 1 before falling to Errigal Ciaran in round two at Dunmoyle two weeks ago. The side will return to action after a short break firstly on Tuesday evening when they are scheduled to entertain Carrickmore in an intriguing derby contest whilst on Friday it will be Cappagh who are the visitors. Both games have 7:30pm throw – ins.
Carrickmore will go into the game having defeated both Cappagh and Errigal Ciaran plus having split the points in a draw with Dromore and that will be a tough contest for the club. This is of course the side who completed a Grade 2 league and championship double back in 2013.
