Six red cards and 20 yellow cards were given out by the referee throughout the affair, with former Tyrone captain Cavanagh taken to hospital at half-time having received the blow after 20 minutes at O’Neill Park.
Darren McCurry received a yellow card before kicking the winning score for Edendork in injury time. He was then given his marching orders for a further black card with moments remaining, as his side held on for a 0-10 to 0-9 victory in Dungannon.
Harry Loughran and Colm Cavanagh were both dismissed for Moy for second yellow cards, with none of the game’s sending offs coming as a result of a straight red.

“Thanks for all the messages,” Sean Cavanagh wrote on Twitter on Sunday. “Released from hospital with a bad concussion, broken nose & extensive facial injuries but could have been much worse. I’m lucky.”
Moy extended their congratulations to their opponents for Saturday’s narrow win, saying: “Commiserations to An Mhaigh senior men’s football squad and management on their very unfortunate one-point defeat to Edendork in today’s SFC first-round match at Dungannon.
“Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Sean Cavanagh who picked up a nasty facial injury early in the match and was transported to Craigavon hospital by ambulance.”
