Derrygonnelly Beat Trillick In Penalty Shootout After Epic Ulster Tie

It took a penalty shootout to separate Fermanagh champions Derrygonnelly and Tyrone champions Trillick in their Ulster Club Football Championship quarter-final at Brewster Park on Sunday.

The two sides finished level after 60 minutes with Trillick scoring 2-10 to Derrygonnelly's 1-13.

Extra-time followed with it appearing as though the Tyrone side were on their way to victory, holding a four-point lead after ten minutes.

However, Derrygonnelly fought back with Conall Jones knocking over a 21-yard free with the final kick of extra-time to equalise and level it at 1-17 to 3-11.

It came down to a penalty shootout, and a high quality one too.
