After a thrilling game of football, Cargin edged into the final on a scoreline of 2-17 to 4-10.

The great rivals have won 18 of the last 19 county titles between them, with Lámh Dhearg’s victory last year the first time since 1998 that a club outside of Cargin and St Gall’s lifted the crown.

The sides were level at 2-5 to 0-11 at the interval, with Michael Pollock and the impressive CJ McGourty, who finished with 1-6, the St Gall’s goalscorers.

The 2014 champions added a further two goals in the four minutes after the restart through Niall O’Neill and Kieran McGourty to lead by six.

Michael Magill brought his tally to 0-4 and set-up a goal for Jamie Gribbin as Cargin surged back into the game. Eoghan McCabe and Pollock added scores while Kevin Niblock continued to cause trouble in the Cargin attack.

Trailing by two points in the 65th minute, Michael McCann was fouled and Tomás stepped up to bury his strike past county keeper Chris Kerr and into the roof of the net.

Cargin will take on Kickhams Creggan in a novel final pairing. Creggan booked their first appearance in the decider since 1977 after a 2-9 to 1-10 win over Naomh Eoin.
