Clonmany Shamrocks           1

This was a crucial win for the Shamrocks in a closely fought encounter with few clear chances. After a close opening period Aileach forced a succession of corners but failed to trouble Patrick Harkin. On 29 minutes a Kieran McGrory cross found Anthony Doherty but his glancing header drifted wide. Three minutes later Aileach failed to defend a throw in allowing Mikey Friel to drill the ball across the face of goal for Jason Devlin to slot home for what turned out  to be the winning goal. Aileach upped the tempo on the restart with Dermot Doherty firing narrowly wide before Anthony Doherty got in behind the shamrocks defence but hesitated and the chance was cleared. The closest they came was from a Darren McMonagle free which saw Cathal McElhinney’s powerful header brilliantly tipped over by Harkin. Clonmany should have doubled their lead when James Gillespie done brilliantly to clear a Jason Devlin effort off the line to Paddy Doherty who blazed the follow up over the bar. Aileach tried hard to the end but the Shamrocks defence well marshalled by Andrew Doherty and Philip Devlin stood firm.
