Fintona are joint top of Division Three after a hard fought but convincing win away to CNG. The Clan led 0-4 to 0-1 early in the first half before a brace of Tommy Mc Grath points and scores from Caolan Donnelly, Cathal Gillespie and Mark Mc Glinn plus a Caolan Donnelly goal sent Fintona off at the break leading 1-5 to 0-5. With Shea Browne in fine scoring form the home side reduced the gap to a single point before Eugene Mc Carroll got the all important second Fintona goal and the Pearses held on for the win with two late scores from Jared Brogan proving decisive. Tommy Mc Grath (4), Caolan Donnelly (1-1), Jared Brogan (2) and Aidan Donnelly were among the scores for the winners while Shea Browne (7), Johnny Knox, Damien Ball, Conor Kerlin, Danny Ball and March Henry each hit a point for the home side.

Glenelly travelled up to Donaghmore on Saturday and came away with an impressive 3-13 to 1-9 win over their hosts. After a tight first half Glenelly led 1-5 to 0-5 with a Cormac Mc Bride goal proving the difference between the teams at the break. Mc Bride finished top scorer on the night with 2-1 while veteran scoring machine Seamus Harkin turned up with his shooting boots on and banged over five points. Lorcan Mc Cullagh also hit 0-5 while Glenelly’s third goal of the game came from Nathan Mc Laughlin.

It  was a close run affair between Brackaville and Castlederg before the Owen Roes emerged winners on a 0-18 to 1-13 scoreline. Dale Mc Sorley was in fine shooting form with 0-5 while Jason O’Neill (4), e  Gervin (2), Ciaran Gervin (3), Ronan Mc Hugh (2), Rian Mc Hugh and Sean Fee were among the points for the Roes. An understrength Derg side put it up to Brackaville for long periods of the game but ultimately came up short due to a lack of scoring power.  Darren Traynor (1-3) led the line for Castlederg with Dairy Corry (3), Adam Traynor (2), Dom Mc Goldrick (2), Matty Mc Menamin (2) and Oran O’Donnell were among the points for the Derg.

Cookstown continue to fly high with 1-8 from Matthew Carberry helping them to victory over a resilient Eskra side. Seamus Glackin (1-0) was also on target with a goal while Michael Oscar Devlin, John Gilmore, Callan Kelly, Peter Mc Gurk and Ryan Mullan were all among the points. Niall Marlowe top scored once again for Eskra while Cathal Meegan (1-1), Mickey Woods (1) and Paul Turbitt (1) completed the Emmetts scoring.

Augher saw off the challenge of Urney on Friday night winning 1-10 to 0-7. The South Tyrone side led 0-6 to 0-4 at the break but it took a Finbarr Mc Quade goal four minutes into the second half to put distance between the sides. Worryingly for Augher they failed to score again until the 21st minute of the second half. However late points from Eoghan Keenan, Finbarr Mc Elroy, Liam Connolly, Raymond Mc Elroy and Darragh Kavanagh sealed the win. Ryan Henry top scored for Urney with 0-4 while Gerry Devine, Mark Lafferty and Chris Bogle were also on target.

Drumragh are still unbeaten and are two points behind Fintona and Cookstown with six wins from six starts. Niall Mc Carney led the line in scoring against Derrytresk with 0-5 while Kevin Marron (4), Shane Cleary (3), Eoin Montgomery (3) and Benny Drumm (2) were all on target for the Sarsfields. There was little between the two sides up until the last ten minutes when Drumragh pushed on and pulled away to win comfortably. Niall Gavin was marksman in chief for Derrytresk with 1-6 while Aidan Gavin (2) and Fiontann Campbell (1) completed the Derrytresk scoring.

Drumquin left it late on Friday night when a late, late Benny Gormley goal snatched victory from the jaws of defeat and left Brocagh scratching their heads and wondering just how they failed to close out this game. With James Mc Kiver hitting the net in the first half and points from Mickey Hughes, Oisin Roper, Ciaran Campbell and Aidan Dorman the Emmetts went in at the break one clear. Leading by a point deep in injury time Brocagh were caught out by Drumquin’s and Gormley’s last gasp goal. Oisin Gormley (5), Frankie Mc Alynn (3), Finnan Patterson (2), Sean Mc Donagh (1) and Mattie Mc Dermott (1) were all among the points for the Wolfe Tones who will be delighted to get back to winning ways. Final score Drumquin 1-12, Brocagh 1-10.
