Cookstown and Fintona remain joint top of the table and unbeaten following the latest round of league fixtures and wins over Drumragh and Castlederg respectively.

Fr Rocks 1-11
Drumragh 0-12

A tale of two penalties saw Cookstown maintain their unbeaten status a stay top of Division 3.
When Callan Kelly calmly converted his and sent the keeper the wrong way, Cookstown led by 4 after John Gilmore had been fouled with 9 minutes remaining. All the drama was saved for injury time after Drumragh had reduced the deficit to 2 when, in the 63rd minute, they were awarded a penalty.
Veteran goalkeeper Ruairi Cummings guessed the right way to produce a stunning save and seal the win for Fr Rocks. Drumragh had led by 2 early on, but 5 points in succession gave the home side the advantage, Cookstown led 7-6 at half time. Points were exchanged before Kelly’s penalty which had looked the clinching score before Cummings heroics saved the day.
