The annual Owen Mc Kenna Cup Blitz took place last Friday 7th June in St Mellan Park, Truagh. There was excellent football played throughout the day in glorious conditions. Deravoy NS, Edenmore NS, Clara NS, Knockconan NS all entered teams in both the boy's and girl's competitions. Deravoy/Clara girls played some great football especially in their second game against Knockconan where the result could have gone either way. Edenmore were victorious in the girls competition after a narrow victory over Knockconan and they had goalkeeper Rebecca Slowey to thank for keeping them in the game at various stages. Edenmore captain Caoimhe Kelly was presented with the Parish Cup afterwards. The Owen Mc Kenna Cup decider came down to a playoff between the boys from Edenmore and Knockconan also. Deravoy were very unfortunate not to progress to the final and played some excellent football in every game. Clara produced some great football too pushing Edenmore all the way in their group game where Oran Mc Meel was outstanding for them, causing the Edenmore defence all sorts of trouble. The boy's final was a tense, exciting affair with Edenmore narrowly coming out on top after sustaining intense pressure from the Knockconan forwards in the final minutes of the game. Joint captains Aidan Treanor and Harry Murphy were presented with the Owen Mc Kenna Cup for the first time. Owen Mc Kenna's family were in attendance throughout the day and his mother Teesie(not sure of spelling) presented the winning captains with their respective trophies. Owen's brother Brendan thanked Truagh Gaels for orgainising the event and the teachers along with the pupils from the local schools for participating. He also expressed his gratitude to the referees; Ian Treanor, Declan Mc Garvey and Ronan Boyle.
