VISITORS Strabane ripped up the script at Healy Park yesterday afternoon when they secured a shock league victory over hosts Omagh to boost their survival prospects in Division One.
Goals in either half from Dylan Arnold and Ruairi Gormley proved the pivotal scores as the youthful Sigersons stunned a star-studded St Enda’s line up which fell way below the standards that manager Paddy Crozier would expect from them.
With Sean Doherty and Ruairi Gormley providing an energetic and enterprising platform around centre field, the away team were ruthless on the counter-attack and able to soak up any sporadic pressure which Omagh were able to exert in the closing stages.
Despite a healthy scoring return from Ronan O’Neill (6) and Connor O’Donnell (5) the hosts spurned a series of scoring opportunities when chasing the gap in the last quarter, and their wastefulness contrasted markedly with the calmness and composure of the likes of Michael Etherson, John McLaughlin and Haydyn McNamee at the other end.
