With the MacRory Cup in the bag, the thoughts now turn to the Hogan Cup for the management and players of St Michael’s.

And for stylish centre half back Josh Largo Elis, he says that they will be trying to go the whole way for manager Dom Corrigan.

The Irvinestown player was superb at the heart of the St Michael’s defence, coming away with the ball time and again and making driving runs deep into Omagh territory.

And he doesn’t want the run to end here.

“We will now set out to win the Hogan Cup, it would be great to do that for Dom because he hasn’t won it yet,” said Largo Elis.

On Monday in the Athletic Grounds St Michael’s produced a strong team performance and that strong sense of team ethic is one that is reinforced by Josh.

“It is not about individuals here, we play as a team. We work hard to get the ball into our forwards and they do the scoring. I also thought our defence was superb. We stuck to our gameplan and we came out winners,” he stated.

After a wonderful first half in which St Michael’s went in with a 0-11 to 0-03 lead at the break, they had to withstand an Omagh rally in the period after half time.

“They scored 1-03 at the start of the second half but we knew what we had to do. We calmed everything down, got the ball out and chipped away at scores,” he explained.

The Omagh goal at this stage came from a penalty but the defender felt it was a tough call on goalkeeper Sean McNally.

“I felt it was harsh, I thought that Sean saved it but the referee said there was a foot block and you just have to get on with it.”

St Michael’s though responded well to pull away again and even a second Omagh goal could not deny them the victory.

“I can’t really put it into words, it’s amazing. We set out at the start of the year to win a MacRory Cup and it is an unbelievable feeling.”
