Killyman had five points to spare at the end over Dregish after making the most of the difficult conditions. Dregish led 0-3 to 0-1 at the break but with Enda Mc Gahan (1-2) and Eamon Donnelly (1-0) bagging goals and Brian Og O Rourke landing three points Killyman did enough for the win. Dregish bagged a pair of goals of their own in the second half with Niall O’Kane and Sean Gilloway finding the net. Mark Gilloway, Stephen Breen and Cathal Rodgers all hit points but could not prevent their team from slipping to defeat.

Clogher’s fine start to the season continued with a six point win over Drumragh. The Eire Ogs bagged three goals in the first half with Fergal Mc Kenna (2-00), Mark Bogue 1-01 and Ryan Mc Caughey (0-4) doing most of the damage. Shane Cleary hit half a dozen points for the Sarsfields while Barry Fitzgerald landed 1-1 but although they produced an improved second half they still came up short as the Eire Ogs made it three wins from three starts.

Eskra enjoyed a comfortable 3-15 to 1-6 win over Errigal Thirds having made good use of the elements in a dominant opening thirty minutes. Five first half points from Joe Mc Carroll and goals from Peter Hughes, Paul Turbitt and Martin Mc Ginley put the Emmetts into an unassailable position leading 3-11 to 1-0 at the break. Aodhan Mc Cullagh found the net for Errigal just before the break and although Caolan Tierney (4) and Pio Mc Dermott (2) were on target in the second half the outcome was never in doubt. Peter Hughes and Joe Mc Carroll added two points apiece to the Eskra total as they cantered to victory.

Two of the most experienced and highly rated sides in the division met on Sunday with Rock coming out on top against Newtownstewart. Liam Nugent landed eight points for the winners with Aidan Mc Garrity and Mark Ward bagging a brace apiece. Ryan Mayse (3), Kevin Gallagher (3) and Aidan Mc Sorley (4) did most of the scoring for the north Tyrone lads but the loss of Mayse to a red card with fifteen minutes remaining left Newtownstewart with a mountain to climb and Rock held on to win by three.

Brackaville salvaged a draw in their clash with Killeeshil recovering from being 0-7 to 0-1 down in the first half. Points from Martin and Stefan Gervin helped get them back in the game before Tiernan Mc Glinchey and Gary Ferguson scores left the half time score 0-8 to 0-4 for Killeeshil. Once again Daniel Millar was in superb form for Killeeshil hitting four points and producing another man of the match display. Enda Hamill (3), Cormac Donaghy (2) and Pascal Donaghy (2) were all on target but a goal from Shea Fee helped ensure Brackaville got a share of the spoils.

Castlederg had four points to spare over their north Tyrone neighbours Glenelly in a low scoring but competitive match which was tied at three points apiece at the break. Seamus Harkin top scored for Glenelly with four points while Ronan O’Kane (2) and Shane Conway were also on target for their side. Stefain Gallen and Mark Corry were among the points for the winners but it was the all important second half goal from Shane Carlin that sealed the win for the Derg.

A difficult week for Drumquin ended on the football pitch with a heavy defeat away to Beragh.  Like many of the games today the wind played a significant role but the Red Knights managed to run up 1-19 with Jack Campbell bagging 1-8 and Martin Rodgers, Pauric Meenagh, Eddie Molloy and Hugh Franey all bagging a brace apiece. Drumquin playing wind assisted in the first half led at the the break 0-5 to 0-3 with Stephen Gormley and Frankie Mc Alynn on target.

Clan Na nGael defeated Fintona by seven points on Sunday. A goal in the first minute from Gareth Mc Dermott gave them the perfect start and although Fintona drew the game level at 1-1 to 0-4 a second CNG goal from Aaron Devine midway through the first half put them in pole position. Aaron Mc Carney (5), Cillian Mc Cann (2) and Pauric Kelly (2) did most of the Fintona scoring but the setback of conceding two first half goals made a difficult day almost impossible.
