Omagh High School 2 – 2 Fivemiletown College.
Omagh High School’s U-14 boys football team met Fivemiletown College in an evenly contested away fixture in their second match of year’s McMullan Shield. Led by Captain William Edwards, Omagh High School started the match on the front foot, scoring through the energetic Matthew McFarland after ten minutes, slotting calmly past the Fivemiletown shot stopper with clinical accuracy. Fivemiletown then hit back with a well worked goal of their own and a fine strike from the edge of the box giving Antoni Zakrzewski no chance in the Omagh goal. Following the interval, it was Omagh High School who again took the lead through their talisman and last season’s top scorer, Bence Farkas. Jake Weir picked out Farkas at the back post with a superb cross field pass and he was never going to miss in the current form he has been displaying. Fivemiletown would go on to score a last minute equaliser to deny Omagh High their first away win of the tournament but honours even was probably a fair reflection on the match overall. Notable performances on the day came from Captain William Edwards the strong pairing of Henry Clarke and Jack Fulton at centre back, the skilful and evasive Jake Weir in centre midfield and the robust Calum McGhee shadowing the back four. Man of the Match was Matthew McFarland – a magnificent display of strength, aptitude, endeavour capped off with goal of the game.
