BACK IN THE DAY

The Irish News, November 11 2009: MacRory Cup: St Macartan’s, Monaghan 0-18 St Patrick’s, Dungannon 2-9

St Macartan’s, Monaghan caused a major shock in the BT MacRory Cup by defeating holders St Patrick’s, Dungannon in Killeeshil yesterday to take their first win in this season’s competition.

The Tyrone men got off to the perfect start with Conor McAliskey finding the net straight from the throw-in, but that was as good as it got for them.

But they went into the interval ahead after McKenna and Gary McQuaid picked off very late points.

Dungannon’s Colm McFaul grabbed a 50th minute goal to narrow the gap, but Daniel McNally responded with another Monaghan point and his side held out for a 0-18 to 2-9 victory.

St Macartan’s: D McKenna (0-7), G McQuaid (0-4), L Hahassey (0-3), D McNally (0-3), B McQuaid (0-1).
