Cockhill showed exactly why they are champions on Sunday, coming back from 3-1 down with just eight minutes remaining to incredibly take a 4-3 lead in injury time, only for Chris Kyle to equalise straight away for the home side to force extra time. The champions were not going to be denied however, and up stepped Mark Moran in the last minute of extra time to fire the hoops into the next round of the Intermediate cup at the expense of their rivals, who must be sick of the sight of the Inishowen side.
It was the home side who were first to threaten in the very wintry conditions, when veteran striker Ronan Coyle hit a half volley which shaved the outside of the post in the fifth minute.
Five minutes later it was the away side who hit the woodwork, when a Gerry Gill free was met by Malachy McDermott at the back post, but the big midfielder’s strike hit the outside of the post and went wide.
