It was probably the game of the day in Fr Hackett Park this afternoon. Augher managed to secure both points in the end but the result of this whole hearted contest was in doubt until Augher fired home their third goal of the game. Augher got off to a brilliant start and were leading 2-4 to 0-5 at half time. Both the Augher goals came from Daire Kavanagh. Eglish had Peter McCann and Brendan Donnelly to thank for their scores. It was all Eglish after the break and they got back on level terms thanks to scores from McKenna, McCann and a Brendan Donnelly goal. However Augher had the final say in a pulsating contest with the McMeel major seeing them over then line. Final Score – Augher 3-9 Eglish 1-11

Killyclogher moved on to five points from five games with a convincing eight point win over Derrylaughan.  Thomas Flanagan got the St Mary’s outfit off to a great start with a goal in the opening half.  Derrylaughan had Conor McCabe on target during that period.  After  the restart Conor Meenan and Shea Coney both got points for each side before Leo Meenan effectively ended the contest with a goal from the penalty spot.  Final Score – Killyclogher 2-8 Derrylaughan 0-6

Carrickmore are well on their way to turning their season around as they picked up their second win of the season at home to Ardboe.  The scoring in the first half proved to be very difficult as Carrickmore held a 0-4 to 0-3 lead at the break.  County men Donnelly, Penrose and Gormley were all on the scoreboard during the time.  Shea McGuigan fired over two points for Ardboe.  John McConville has been hammering home the goals in recent weeks and he was on target again this afternoon from the penalty spot.  However Carrickmore managed to hold on for victory with points from Donnely and a goal from Martin Penrose.  Final Score – Carrickmore 1-7 Ardboe 1-4

Scores proved difficult to come by in the first half with the hosts leading 0-4 to 0-3 with points coming from Conor Gormley, Martin Penrose and Mark Donnelly, Shea McGuigan with a couple for the Rossas. Mark Donnelly increased that lead on the restart but then Ardboe hit back when John McConville converted a penalty. Defender Ruairi Loughran hit a couple of points for the St.Colmcilles with McGuigan replying for Ardboe before a last minute Penrose goal ensured victory for the hosts on a 1-7 to 1-4 score line.

Moy recorded their second win in a row following an impressive three point away win over Greencastle this afternoon.  Sean Cavanagh, Paul Rouse and Ryan Mellon all fired over points for the visitors in the opening thirty minutes.  Peter Mallon also struck a goal for Moy to give them a 1-9 to 0-5 lead at the interval.  John McCullagh and Cahir McCullagh lead the fightback for Greencastle but late scores from Sean Cavanagh helped Moy over the line.  Final Score – Greencastle 1-9 Moy 1-12

Dromore have a perfect five from five record following their four point win away to Donaghmore this afternoon. However the victory came at a price following early injuries to Ronan Mc Nabb and Conor O’Neill in the opening five minutes. The sides were level four times during a lively first half that saw Kelvin Hughes and Niall Mc Kenna provide plenty of attacking threat for the home side while Colm Mc Cullagh and Paddy Montague got through a lot of work for Dromore.

Donaghmore reached the break one in front but lost their way in the third quarter as Dromore tightened their grip on the game. A fisted point two minutes in from Eoin Mc Cusker tied the game for the fifth time and two Dromore points in the eleventh minute put them 0-9 to 0-7 in front. The home side finally woke from their slumbers and scores from Deasuin Quinn and Niall Mc Kenna levelled matters for the seventh time. However the game changed when Dromore midfielder Hugh Mc Nulty broke through and scored the only goal of the game to give his side a lead they would not relinquish. Donaghmore to their credit battled back and forced Peter Ward into a fine late save but the table toppers were not to be denied and Dromore deservedly won by four points on a final score of 1-13 to 0-12.

Clonoe got their season back on track with a return to winning ways following a four point win at home to Errigal Ciaran. Clonoe created several early chances but with Tommy Canavan in good form Errigal established a 0-4 to 0-2 lead midway through the opening half. However alarmingly for the visitors it was nearly half an hour before they would score again and in the meantime Clonoe took total control with a fisted goal from Ryan O’Neill before half time proving decisive. Half time score Clonoe 1-6, Errigal Ciaran 0-4.

Clonoe moved seven points clear midway through the second half but just when it seemed the game was beyond them back came Errigal. Led by the drive and industry of Peter Harte and Ciaran Mc Ginley Errigal pushed hard to get something from the game and it took a brilliant save from Michael O’Neill in the Clonoe goals to deny Mc Ginley late on. However in spite of the intensity of the finish the home side held on to win 1-11 to 0-10.
