There was another derby tussle in North Tyrone on Saturday with Castlederg hosting neighbours Drumquin, A high scoring first half saw the Derg reach the break leading 0-9 to 1-4. Paddy Lynch, Sean and Connor Harper and Stefain Gallen were among the points for the Derg while Niall Mc Alynn, Frankie Mc Alynn and Chris Browne landed points for the Wolfe Tones and Cormac Rodgers found the net for the first of Drumquin’s goals. The second half was just as close and competitive and it took a goal from super sub Shane Carlin added to some superb frees from the boot of Stefain Gallen to ease the home side to victory.

Clogher defeated neighbours Eskra by a goal in a high scoring and entertaining Clogher Valley derby on Saturday. Peter Hughes and Joe Mc Carroll were in fine form for Eskra in the openi. The Dergng period while Ryan Mc Caughey, Fergal Mc Kenna and Conor Shields were among the points for Clogher. Eskra just about deserved their 1-6 to 0-6 half time lead but when they went down to fourteen men early in the second period Clogher made hay. Sean Bogue, Rory Mc Elroy and Aidan Mc Elroy hit points for the winners while Fergal Mc Kenna’s goal and a Sean Mc Caffrey penalty ensured the points went to Clogher.

Seamus Harkin and Eamon Mc Connell both found the net for Glenelly in their away day draw at Brackaville while Shane Conway not only landed a brace of points but also produced a top quality performance for the north Tyrone lads.

Brocagh and Killyman served up a high scoring and entertaining game on Saturday afternoon before a Ciaran Donnelly inspired Emmetts side pulled away to win by nine. Donnelly top scored with 1-7 while Mickey Hughes (5) and James Mc Kiver (1-1) were also jn fine scoring form for the loughshore men. Enda Mc Gahan landed eight points for Killyman while Cathal Campbell (1-0) and Mickey Donnelly (0-1) were also on target.

Drumragh and Beragh played out a low scoring draw on Saturday. Lee Brown opened the scoring with a goal for Drumragh after six minutes while points from Shane Cleary (3) and Aidy Colton ensured  the Sarsfields reached the break 1-4 to 0-3 ahead. Drumragh failed to score in the second period and on the day points from Pete Meenagh, Martin Rodgers (4) and Jack Campbell were enough to earn the fourteen men of Beragh a deserved draw.

Rock showed all their experience as they put a very young Fintona side to the sword. Liam Nugent was scorer in chief for the winners with 0-6 while Cathal Mc Williams added 1-1 for the winners. The Pearses never really got going and managed only two points in a disappointing first half from Aaron Mc Carney and Pauric Kelly. A Bernard Cassidy goal with eight minutes remaining added a semblance of respectability to the score on a day when Rock were comfortable winners.

Killeeshil got their new season off to a winning start with a four point victory over Dregish. Pascal Donaghy top scored for the winners with 0-5 while Daniel Millar (3) and Aaron Mc Kenna (2) added five points between them. Indeed Mc Kenna looked the most accomplished player on the field with a controlled display for the winners. Dregish ace forward Niall O’Kane top scored for the Pearse Ogs with 1-4 while David O’Reilly (3) and Ronan Glackin (1) were also on target.

Veteran forward Stephen O’Neill was once again among the goals for Clan na nGael in their clash with neighbours Newtownstewart. The former county man found the net twice in the opening half with Niall Kerlin also hit the rigging as the Clan reached the break leading 3-3 to 0-6. However with Kevin Gallagher and Aidan Mc Sorley in outstanding form Newtownstewart staged a fine second half comeback. Mc Sorley top scored for his team with 2-7 while Gallagher, Damian Coyle and Michael Corless were also among the points.
