Cookstown win is extra special

Cookstown (Tyrone) 3-13Warrenpoint (Down) 1-11 (after extra-time)

Substitute Jason Quinn was their hero, shooting a late leveller for the Tyrone men, who now seek to repeat their 2010 All-Ireland win.

Ross McGarry kicked four of Warrenpoint’s five first half points from frees, but John Gilmore’s 27th minute goal sent Cookstown in with a 1-5 to 0-5 interval lead.

Warrenpoint forged ahead but Quinn rescued Cookstown, making it 2-7 to 1-10 at the end of normal time. The game turned as Gilmore grabbed his second. Warrenpoint’s Ruairi Cowan (2 yellow) and Shea Curran (straight red) were dismissed, and their challenge faded.
