Cookstown 0-16 Strabane 3-5
Cookstown had a massive result tonight in the quarter final of minor championship, down to 14 men after fiftenn minutes when Dean Teague was sent off. It was a night for leaders to emerge from the young Rocks side. Strabane went ahead by 4 points with the help of an early goal, but Fr Rocks fought back and levelled it just before half time with great scores from Christopher McNichol and Fergal Devlin. In the second half  Strabane struck another early goal with help from the extra man advantage, but Fr Rocks dug deep and beganto get on top with excellent performances from Conor O'Neil, team captain Christopher McNichol and accurate free taking from Dylan Coyle. Overall the young Rocks showed great strength coming together with leaders all over the park like Shea O,Driscoll and Aidan Doyle to progress to Semi Final. We'll done to all players and management.
