ACL Division 2 Wrap Up
There was little separating the two sides in the evening fixture between Naomh Eoghan (0-11) and Cookstown (1-8). A converted penalty in first half injury time from Niall Mc Murray helped the Fr Rocks lead at the break 1-3 to 0-5. Naomh Eoghan hit five in a row from Kevin Gallagher, Michael Corless, Niall Mayse, Gallagher again and Corless to move four ahead. Cookstown dug deep and showed considerable resolve to hit the last four points of the game and salvage a draw. Cookstown scorers were Mc Murray (1-3), Matthew Mc Neill, Danny Mc Elhatton, Luke Cullen, Sean Mc Laughlin and Marty Murray.
Gortin got the show back on the road with a good win over Beragh who led at the break 0-8 to 0-7 but a solid second half from the home side saw them take the points on a final score of 2-15 to 0-13. Oisin Donnelly (3), Martin Rodgers (3) and Conor Owens (3) were among the points for Beragh. Sean Mc Kenna (3), Sean Óg Mc Aleer (5) Ruairi Keenan (1-2) and Ciaran Brolly (1-1) accounted for most of the scores for the winners.
A three goal blitz during nine minutes of the second half provided Edendork with the platform to push on and take the points against Aghyaran. Niall Morgan lined out at full forward and was the go to man for the winners for most of the game. He hit 0-4 while James Fearon (1-1), Conor Mallon (1-1), Ben Cullen (1-0), Conn Kilpatrick (1-0) Daire Conway (0-2) and Neil Kilpatrick were also on target for the home side. Aghyaran will be disappointed with the outcome with their scores coming from Ethan Mc Hugh (1-3) Tommy Dolan (0-1), Dermot Mc Hugh (0-1) Benny Gallen (1-2) and Cormac Mc Hugh (1-0).
Pomeroy are running into form at just the right time. Sunday’s comfortable win over Eskra pushes the Emmetts closer to relegation but with the other results in Division Two the Plunketts are now in second place on the league table. Kieran Mc Geary (4), Hugh Mc Namee (2), Ronan Duffin (3) and Ryan Loughran (3) were among the points while Brendan Burns and Jude Campbell both hit the net for the Plunketts. On a disappointing day for Eskra there was little to cheer about with Cathal Meegan, Joe Mc Carroll and Peter Hughes on target.
Eglish produced a very mature performance away to Galbally to secure the points and put themselves well clear of Pomeroy in second place. The 1-15 to 1-11 win means Galbally have been overtaken by Pomeroy and are now three points adrift of the team on top. This was a superb all round team display from Eglish with Luke Donnelly (4), Ethan Jordan (5) and Colm Byrne (1-1) leading the lines superbly. Galbally will be disappointed with the outcome and had plenty of chances to have made the game a closer contest. Stevie Daly in goals for Eglish was superb. Conor Donaghy was Galbally’s top scorer with 1-2 while Christopher Morris (2), Sean Murphy and Barry Carberry were also on target.
There were important wins for Tattyreagh and Rock in their battles to avoid relegation. Both won away from home with the Tattyreagh victory over Clogher putting the Eire Óg side in serious bother at the bottom of the table. All three Tattyreagh goals came at vital moments ensuring that they kept Clogher at arm’s length. Callum Leonard, Eoghan Murray and Ciaran Mullin were the men who hit the net for the Tatts. James Darcy from play and from placed balls hit eight of his side’s points while Johnny Harkin, Conor Taggart, Keelan Mc Donagh and Peadar Mullin were also on target. On what could prove to be a red letter day for the Eire Ógs Barry Mc Kenna (1-0), Ciaran Bogue (2), Conor Shields (2), Mark Mc Connell (2), Ryan Mc Caughey (2), Michael Mc Caughey, Jamie Callaghan, Cillian Barkey and Ruairi Mc Elroy were among the scores.
Rock’s win over Killeeshil was all the more praiseworthy considering the injury list they currently have. Goals from Cathal Mc Williams and Eoin Gallagher were huge scores while Liam Nugent (3), Aidan Mc Garrity (2) Conor Mc Garrity (2) Thomas Mackle and Shea Litter got the all important points. The sides were level at the break but Rock were slightly more efficient after the restart. Jason Doyle hit 1-1 for Killeeshil while Cormac Donaghy (3), Tomas Hoy (2), Paul O’Neill, Packie Mc Mullan, Daniel Millar and Liam Hughes were among the points. Meanwhile Kildress got the better of Owen Roes in their mid table clash winning 1-9 to 0-10. Cathal Mc Shane top scored with six points for the Roes while Niall Mc Aleer , Micky Dooher and Ronan Mc Nulty were also on target. A Corey Holland goal for Kildress early in the second half proved crucial to the outcome of this one and put breathing space between the teams. Philip Lennon, Shea Murphy and Mattie Mc Guigan each bagged a brace of points while Shea Quinn contributed three to the Kildress cause.
