Dromore 0-15 Coalisland 0-08

Dromore won a fourth Tyrone SFC title, with Emmet McNabb starring in a second-half surge at Healy Park.

They had too much power and pace for a Fianna side that faded after a strong opening, and six McNabb scores pushed the men from Gardrum Park to a convincing victory from the end.

They were always wary of a late rally from comeback specialists Coalisland, but it never materialised, chiefly due to some brilliant defensive work from Ronan McNabb, Peter Teague and Conor O'Hara.

The warning signs were there for Dromore from the start as Padraig Hampsey powered forward to send Michael McKernan in to let off a shot which was saved by Mark McGale.

Paddy McNeice had two points on the board inside the opening five minutes, before Emmet McNabb got Dromore off the mark from a free.

The Fianna, reliant on late comebacks in all the previous rounds, were determined to get off to a fast start, and they pushed into a two points lead with scores from Niall Devlin and Plunkett Kane, 0-4 to 0-2 at the first drinks break.

But there were nervy moments, with goalkeeper Fintan Coney needing to be at his most alert to save from Ryan McCusker.

Emmett McNabb kicked six points of the champions' total

Hampsey was constantly looking for opportunities to drive through from deep, and they had another man keen to exploit space in Tiarnan Quinn, who raced through acres of unguarded territory to pop over a point.

Dromore were a clear second best in terms of possession, but they were just a point shy when Odhran Rafferty finished off a 27th minute counter-attack.

And another raid produced a Sean McNabb leveller, 0-5 each at the interval, and Coalisland reflecting on eight first-half wides.

Dromore’s composure, and some fine defensive work from Colm O’Neill and Ryan McCusker, helped them curb the main threats and, after Rafferty had put them ahead for the first time, Niall Sludden crafted a goal chance for McCusker, but his shot was easily dealt with by Coney.

End to end, and becoming more open by the minute, scores were traded between Sludden and McNeice, with the best of his four from play, before the St Dympna’s pushed the tempo further with scores from McCusker and Emmet McNabb (2) to go four clear by the second drinks break, 0-11 to 0-7.

The experienced Ronan McNabb made some vital intercepts as Coalisland ran into dead ends, and the wizardry of Emmet McNabb continued to torment their defence as he kept the score-board dials turning.

And as Coalisland ran out of steam, a younger Dromore side turned the screw as they pressed for home with points from Cahir Goodwin and Rafferty for a first title since 2011.
