Drumlane missed out on an Ulster junior club football title after losing 5-4 to Stewartstown Harps on penalties at Clones.

The sides were deadlocked at 12 points each at full-time before Drumlane came from behind to level the game at 1-12 to 0-15 at the end of extra time.

Drumlane started better and led 0-7 to 0-5 at half-time. Ryan Connolly (three), Daryl McGurren (two), Darragh Dolan and Cormac Flynn were on target for the Cavan champions.


Stewartstown’s Tiernan Rush made it a one-point game three minutes into the second half but three minutes later he was sent off.

On 46 minutes Anton Coyle restored parity before two Ryan Connolly points saw Drumlane restore their two point cushion five minutes later.

Conor Quinn’s point one minute from full-time gave Stewartstown a one-point lead before Ryan Connolly landed an injury-time equaliser and suddenly extra time was needed.


Stewartstown gained the upper hand seven minutes into extra time when Dan Lowe’s penalty goal opened up a three-point gap.

Drumlane made a late resurgence and two points from Michael Owens and one from Ryan Connolly resulted in a penalty shoot-out.

Stewartstown won the shoot-out 5-4 after it went all the way to sudden death; Daryl McGurren (two), Michael Owens and Darragh Dolan were on target for Drumlane.
