Niall Gormley and Daire Gallagher’s goals in the opening half for Tricllick left Glenties chasing the win for most of the game.Ciaran Thompson did manage to pull his side back into three points of the leaders when he powered home a superb shot to leave it 2-6 to 1-6 as the teams got down to second half business.Trillick continued to latch on the points with a couple of fine scores through Daire Gallagher and Gormley again.In fairness to Glenties they never said die and continued to chip away with their own points from the likes of Brendan McDyre and Johnny McCloone.Trillick should have shut the game out as a contest when Ruairy Kelly blazed wide when he perhaps should have done better with the goal at his mercy. Dara Gallagher will rue his last gasp effort which could have snatched a replay for the Donegal side but which went wide of the posts.Naomh Chonaill will have plenty of regrets especially the early sending off but the Tyrone team took full advantage and march onto the semi-final.NAOMH CHONAIL SUFFER ULSTER HEARTACHE BY NARROWEST OF MARGINS was last modified: November 1st, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalGlentiesTrillickUlsterlast_img
