Killeeshil defeated Brocagh 1-9 to 0-9 with Shane Mallon once again top scoring for the hoops with 0-5. Killeeshil led by four at the break 0-7 to 0-3 with Brocagh’s first half scores coming from Mickey Hughes, Justin Campbell and Ciaran Donnelly.  Mickey Hughes added four further points to his teams tally but Eoghan Donaghy’s goal helped ensure Killeeshil took the points.

Neighbours and parish rivals Drumragh and Tattyreagh met with the Tatts winning to consolidate their position as one of the top sides in junior football. Drumragh did lead 0-7 to 0-6 at the break but goals very often win matches and that was very much the case in this one. James Darcy (1-6) and Robert Porter (1-1) top scored for the winners with Collie Harkin (3) also contributing well for the Tatts. Kevin Marron and Shane Cleary hit nine points between them for Drumragh.

Owen Roes good run of form continued on Sunday when they produced a very determined second half display to defeat Drumquin. The Roes trailed 0-5 to 0-4 at the break but inspired by a confident Cathal Mc Shane they quickly overturned that score and won easily. Paul Sheridan (4) and Daniel Mc Swiggan accounted for the Wolfe Tones first half scores. County player Mc Shane bagged 1-5 in the second period with his 42nd minute penalty more or less ending the game as a contest. Tony Devine, Andy Devine, Charles O’Doherty and Ronan Parker were also on target for the winners. Credit too to the Owen Roes defence that  restricted Drumquin to just two second half points from Emmett Mc Aleer and Barry Gormley as the game ended 1-13 to 0-7.

Seamus Harkin returned to scoring form for Glenelly hitting 2-5 as the north Tyrone team drew 2-12 apiece with Rock. Included in that 2-5 was an injury time penalty to secure the draw while Colm Hicks, Ronan O’Kane and Shayne Devine were all among the point scorers.

Enda Mc Gahan scored 2-9 for Killyman as they defeated a disappointing Clogher side 3-14 to 2-11 on Sunday. Killyman’s Niall Mc Alinden scored his team’s other goal while Mickey Donnelly scored three very important points for the winners. Marc Mc Connell (1-1), Paul Tierney (1-0), Dermot Mc Caffrey (2), Fergal Mc Kenna (2) and Ryan Mc Caughey (2) top scored for the Eire Ogs on a day when they struggled to get going all over the pitch.

Former county player Stevie O’Neill returned to competitive action for the first time this season and helped Clann na nGael defeat Fintona 1-14 to 1-8. O’Neill’s accuracy from frees and ability to bring others into play played a huge role in securing the win on a day when Damian Ball top scored for the Clann with 0-7. Cathal Mc Gill, Michael O’Neill, Dominic Devine and Sean O’Kane accounted for the North Tyrone side’s other scores.

Maurice Mc Cloughan, Pauric Kelly, Niall Mellon and Mark Kelly were on target for the Pearses but they were powerless to prevent the Clann na nGael side picking up the points on a day the Fintona lads will want to forget.
