Maghery's Derby Delight
21 August 2007
MAGHERY secured a spot in the B Championship final with success over Ballyhegan by 2-11 to 1-7. The midweek win at Tir na nOg has left Maghery with a final clash against Dorsey on August 12.
Early contributions by Eamon Robinson (0-3), Michael Robinson (0-1) and Gareth Fox (0-1) left Maghery ahead approaching the half-time whistle before Ballyhegan produced one goal and an additional point.
A point early in the second half increased Ballyhegan’s position to 1-4 to 0-5 before substitute, Shea Tennyson, levelled the match with two frees.
A strong performance over the closing stages resulted in a goal and four points for Maghery, with Dermot Forker included in the scorers.
Ballyhegan continued to increase the tally but Joseph McKeever’s goal pushed Maghery clear by 2-11 to 1-7.
