Moortown and Urney were first into action this weekend with the St.Malachys winning a close encounter at the Loughshore. Brian McLernon bagged both goals for the winners as well as contributing a few points with Conor Herron and Peter Devlin also on target. Jamie McAleer and Johnny Lafferty got all of Urney’s tally between them with the former grabbing both goals.

Cookstown made the trek to Aghyaran and they came away with a superb win. James McGahan found the net twice in the first half for the Father Rocks, one of which was a penalty, with Nathan Connolly also finding the net, Benny Gallen, Malachy Martin and Paddy McNulty with points for the St.Davogs. Gallen, Martin and McNulty traded points in the second half with Connolly and McGahan while Gallen also got a goal but in the end those three first half majors from Cookstown proved to be the difference.

Beragh hosted Clogher in a clash between two newly promoted sides and it was the Eire Ogs who won it on a 2-12 to 0-16 scoreline thanks to a late Marc McConnell goal. Fergal McKenna had scored a first half goal for the visitors but points from Martin Rodgers and Jack Campbell left the sides level at the break. Rodgers, Sean McMahon and Niall Owens traded scores after the interval with Ciaran Shields, Ryan McCaughey and Marc Bogue and just when it looked as though the Red Knights had won it up popped McConnell with that late goal.

Galbally made a winning start to their campaign with a hard earned victory away to Gortin. The Pearses led thanks to points from Sean Murphy and Daniel Kerr but Eoghan McGarvey and Sean McAleer kept Gortin in touch before the latter palmed in a goal for a 1-5 to 0-7 interval advantage. A well taken Marc Lennon goal on the restart turned the game in favour of the Pearses and they added points from Liam Rafferty and Murphy before the latter got a goal as it finished 2-11 to 1-8.

Pomeroy also made a good start to life back in Intermediate football with a convincing 2-14 to 0-8 success over Augher at Plunkett Park. There was only then minimum between the two sides at the break with Kieran McGeary, Frank Burns, Ronan Duffin, Darragh Kavanagh and Aidan McElroy among the points for their sides. Two goals from Burns within five minutes of the restart altered the whole complexion of the game with John Loughran and Gavin Goodfellow supplying points as Pomeroy eased away from their opponents.

Loughmacrory held off a spirited Owen Roes side to win 2-15 to 3-10 at home. Seamus Dooher, Conor O’Neill and Cathal McShane had first half points for the visitors with the latter also converting a penalty. Niall McAleer bagged two second half goals for the Roes but it wasn’t enough. Pauric Meenagh, Cathair Gallagher, Shane Grimes and Leo Meenan had points for the home side with Gallagher and Shane Dobbs their goal scorers.

Newtownstewart’s return to division two ended in defeat when Stewartstown won 0-14 to 0-13 on their travels. Gareth Devlin led the way in the scoring stakes for the Harps with Anton Coyle and James Kelly also on target. Aidan McSorley, Brendan Boyle and Michael Coreless all registered for the St.Eugenes.

Strabane edged out Greencastle 1-9 to 0-11 at Sigerson Park. Mark Carson got all but two of the visitors total on the day with Warner Mullan, Danny McBride and Ruairi Gormley supplying points for the winners with keeper Tom McDermott sending a 45 straight to the net with less than ten minutes left on the clock.
