St Michael's Enniskillen rose to the occasion to claim their seventh Ulster Colleges MacRory Cup title at the Athletic Grounds yesterday.

Darragh McBrien's eight-point haul had a big impact, but the Fermanagh side were inspired by high-fielding midfielder and captain Brandon Horan and raiding centre-back Josh Largo-Ellis.

They led by eight points at half-time before Omagh grabbed two second-half goals from Daniel Fullerton and Sean McDonagh to get back in contention.

However, McBrien sealed the St Michael's win with his eighth point.
