His strike in the shadow of extra-time was the decisive goal as United and Killen fought out a highly entertaining final.

It was the Tyrone side who were quickest out of the traps, capitalising on an early defensive mishap by Lisbellaw to edge in front.
While Killen had the lion’s share of possession in the opening 45, both sides mustered decent chances with United captain Sam Lindsay going close from a header and some smart defending required to snuff out a great chance for Killen with ten minutes remaining in the half.

Indeed Lisbellaw managed to get the ball in the shortly after only to see the effort chalked off for offside.
The west Tyrone outfit lead at the break, but Lisbellaw had increasingly come into the game and the second half was set up for a real belter.

And so it proved. Just before the 50 minute mark the Drumad lads were back on level terms. A ball from Sweeney put Zach Woods in on goal, but his shot was batted away by the keeper. It only went as far as Lindsay though and he stabbed home the leveller.
Lisbellaw were in front no long after when a Josh Clarke throw in was controlled by Woods who this time found the target with a crisp shot past the keeper on the turn. 

There was no separating these sides though and Killen were quickly back on parity with a headed goal from the set piece.
It was end to end stuff from there to the final whistle with both sides having their chance to win it.
It was Woods who was to have the final word though. Josh Clarke drilled in from the right to Sweeney who passed back across goals into the path of Woods who took possession with his back to goal before smashing home the winner.
