Derry SHC Final: Slaughtneil claim 10th title in a row

GAA

Derry SHC Final

Slaughtneil 2-18 Kevin Lynch's 1-8

By Declan Bogue at Owenbeg

That most title-hungry of clubs, Slaughtneil, went ten in a row in the Derry senior hurling Championship with a second half blitzing of Kevin Lynchs, outscoring them 2-13 to 1-2 after the break.

Two of their starting team here, Chrissy McKaigue and S McGuigan, have been involved in every one of them. McKaigue, not known to get over-excited at the best of times, looked fairly cool about the achievement afterwards, chatting among supporters while captain, Cormac ODoherty made his speech.

For a club like Lynchs, this one will sting. This is the fourth consecutive loss they have experienced in the final and they appeared to throw a great deal at this in the early stages.

Going in at half-time, despite having lost their best man-marking defender Paddy Kelly to injury after seven minutes, Lynchs aggression was working as they were a point up through magnificent scores from Conor Kelly and a defined gameplan aimed at clogging up the Slaughtneil attack.

Deprived of space, Slaughtneil were forced to shot from outside the range, and it told with 13 wides in the opening half.

But they always had Brendan Rogers in reserve and when he was introduced at half time he caused total panic in the Lynchs backline that allowed others most notably football All-Star nominee Shane McGuigan to flourish.

McGuigan opened the scoring on 16 seconds of the first half and they were already three points clear when a mix up in the Lynchs rearguard allowed Jerome McGuigan to pull on it along the ground to find the net.

Thereafter it became a procession. Lynchs fire was extinguished and with the athletic Thomas Brady badly hampered with a hamstring injury, they couldnt keep up with the pace.

Captain Cormac ODoherty began a wonderful move that went the full length of the pitch and Peter McCullagh played in fellow sub Rogers to get behind the cover and rattle the net past goalkeeper Liam g Hinphey on the hour.

Odhran McKeever, son of former Derry corner-back Kieran, grabbed a late consolation goal back for Lynchs.

In the likes of Ruair Mainain and Peter McCullagh, Slaughtneil have a better depth of panel than in previous years.

The Derry champions now go on the face whoever emerges from Down in the Ulster semi-final. The Antrim champions have a bye straight through to the Ulster final.

Scorers for Slaughtneil: C ODoherty 0-6, 5 frees, 1x 65, Shane McGuigan 0-4, J McGuigan 1-1, B Rogers 1-1, S Cassidy, P McCullagh 0-2 each, R Mianin, K McKaigue 0-1 each
