The All County League got underway on Saturday with a couple of tasty Division Three games. Brocagh entertained Errigal Thirds while Dregish got their season up and running with a north Tyrone derby against Glenelly.

Fintona hosted Kildress in their opening game on Sunday as both teams played out a high scoring draw. The teams were level at the break 0-7 apiece after Aaron Mc Carney (4) and Pauric Kelly (2) scored for the Pearses and Mattie Mc Guigan (2), Eoin Brannigan (2) and Colm Loughran (2) landed points for the Wolfe Tones. There was little between the teams throughout the second half as Philip Loughran led the line for Kildress and Mc Carney once again proved to be the key man for Fintona. A late point from Padraig Lagan put Kildress one up late in the game but a young Fintona team showed considerable resolve to earn a late free which was converted inevitably by Aaron Mc Carney to earn a well deserved draw for the home side.

Killeeshil made winning start to the new season with a comfortable win over Clann na nGael. Tomas Hoy top scored with 0-8 while Daniel Miller (3), Pascal Donaghy (2) and Jason Doyle (2) were all among the scores for the hoops.

Scoring ace Niall Gavin hit 0-12 for the Hill Men in their eight point win over neighbours Killyman while Aidan Gavin scored 1-1 for the winners.

Rock and Eskra played out a hard fought draw with the Emmetts landing two points deep into injury time to snatch a draw. Liam Nugent (0-8 ) was scorer in chief while Shane Murphy, Paudie Ward and Diarmuid Carroll also contributed on the score board. Six points from the boot of Joe Mc Carroll kept Eskra in the game while Eoin Mc Caffrey, Conor O’Hagan and a late, late point from Ryan Gartland ensured a share of the spoils for Eskra.

Brackaville had six points to spare over Drumragh with Dale Mc Sorley hitting 1-7 for the Owen Roes. Sean Day, Stefan Gervin, Shay Fee and Conor Stock were all among the points for the winners. Shane Cleary hit 0-6 for the Sarsfields while Shane Devine (2) and Paul Maguire (2) were also on target for their team.

Aghaloo started the new season with a good win over Castlederg. Tiernan Donnelly and Ruairi Mc Glone landed six second half points between them but Conor Mullen’s goal just before the break was a vital score sending them in at the break leading 1-5 to 0-7. Castlederg were competitive throughout with Steafan Gallen, Mark Corry and Paddy Lynch doing most of the scoring for the Derg.

The Emmetts built on their fine Ulster League win to defeat Errigal 2-7 to 1-7. Ciaran and Cathal Donnelly both found the net for the winners who led by two at the break. Owen Canavan and Brandon Mc Kiver were also on target for the Lough shore side. Patrick Mc Dermott hit 1-2 for Errigal while Sean Mc Kenna contributed 0-2.

Glenelly picked us their first two points of the year after a six point win over Dregish. An impressive first half saw them reach the break leading 2-7 to 1-3. Ronan O’Kane top scored for the winners with five points while Cormac and Kevin Mc Connell both found the net for their team. Others to get among the points for the victors were Seamus Harkin (2), Cathal O’Neill (2) , Michael Nicholas, Ronan Kirk and Conal Furey (0-1 apiece).

On a day when debutant Cormac Taggart was outstanding for Dregish Ben McFarland landed four points while Niall O’Kane (2), Cormac Taggart (2) and Aidan O’Kane (1) were also on target. Final score Dregish 1-9, Glenelly 2-12.
