The home side were ahead at the break 1-4 to 1-3 and extended their lead in the second half with Michael Hughes, Ciaran Donnelly, Justin Campbell and Paul O’ Neill all on target. With just over ten minutes remaining they led by seven points before Niall Gavin landed six late free to close the gap to a point but in truth Brockagh were comfortable winners.
Meanwhile Beragh Red Knights continued their recent improvement with a two point win over previously high flying Glenelly 0-12 to 1-7. Martin Rogers top scored for his side with 0-9 and although Beragh trailed at the break by a point 1-4 to 0-6, they came back well in the second half to win by two.
