Division three saw last week’s joint leaders Derrytresk and Killeeshil defeated while Carrickmore Thirds enjoyed their first victory of the season. Few if any could have foreseen those results but they certainly had quite an impact on the table. The previously unbeaten two teams have been replaced by Brockagh following The Emmetts tremendous win away at Errigal and the loughshore men now lead the division by a point. Aghaloo’ s fine away win at near neighbours and great rivals Killeeshil not only moves them into joint second place but also into a good position to make a serious push for an immediate return to Intermediate football. However the biggest result in junior football last weekend has to be Carrickmore Thirds away win at Dregish. Prior to this game the men in green and gold had suffered several heavy defeats but last Friday night saw them record their first win of 2011 and as a result they move off the foot of the table.
Surprisingly three of the teams that had been expected to be up challenging at the top of the table but have struggled so far have been Drumquin, Fintona and Tattyreagh. The Wolfe Tones only missed out on promotion to Division two at the end of last season after an extra time play-off defeat to Strabane. As a result many people expected them to be among the front runners this season but in spite of some fine individual scoring feats from Eamon Teague the Tones have failed to find any real form. It has been something similar for near neighbours Fintona and Tattyreagh whose recent history in Division Three would have suggested they would also be competing for the top three or four places on the table. However their season has been far from impressive up to this stage and unless they start to get a run of results shortly their season is in danger of disintegrating into oblivion.
