It was a tempestuous affair in Cookstown this afternoon as county champions Clonoe lost out by two points to the hosts. Clonoe finished the game with just 11 players. Cookstown were in fact the first team to lose a player after just 14 minutes. It was the home side that led at the break 1-4 to 0-5. Clonoe scorers during the opening period included Danny McNulty, Stephen McNulty, Ryan T O’Neill and Patrick Doris. The Cookstown goal was finished to the net by Brian O’Neill following a five man move. Their points came from James McGahan, Owen Mulligan and Christopher Eastwood. Scores were difficult to come by in a very competitive second half but points from Shea McGarrity and Owen Mulligan steered the home side past 11 man Clonoe for whom Stephen McNulty and Colm Doris fired over points. Final Score – Cookstown 1-7 Clonoe 0-8

Moy eased themselves a little further away from the relegation playoff zone with a very impressive victory away to Augher.  They managed to fire home fours goals during the sixty minutes.  Two goals from Sean Cavanagh and another two goals from Paul Rouse eased the Moy men’s nerves and the result was never really in doubt.  Division 1 top scorer Jamie Donnelly was on target several times for Augher but they never got the goal that they really needed to pull themselves back into the contest.  The result leaves Augher still needed a result against Cookstown to avoid a relegation playoff.  Final Score – Augher 0-13 Moy 4-9

Errigal Ciaran recorded a victory over Coalisland at home this afternoon despite not scoring in the second half.  Their entire 3-8 came in the opening thirty minutes thanks mainly to very strong wind at their back.  Davy Harte, Michael McCann and Caolan Tierney were first half goal scorers for Errigal while Coalisland’s Gerard Toner slotted home the Fianna goal during that period.  After the break Paddy McNeice and Stephen McNally were among the point scorers for Coalisland while the second goal also came from Gerard Toner.  It wasn’t enough however and Coalisland lost out by a single point.  Final Score – Errigal Ciaran 3-8 Coalisland 2-10

Donaghmore and Trillick fought out an entertaining draw this afternoon. Donaghmore began well and built up a 0-6 to no score lead after eighteen minutes. Deasuin Quinn, Daniel Grimes, Dan Toner, Niall Mc Kenna, Tony Haughey and Mark Hetherington were the six different scorers as the home side made the most of the elements. However Trillick settled with Lee Brennan and Richard Donnelly ensuring the sides reached the break level Donaghmore 0-6, Trillick 1-3. The second half was close and low scoring but it seemed Trillick were destined to take the points home when they went ahead with three minutes left following a free from Lee Brennan. With Donaghmore down to fourteen men after full forward Kelvin Hughes received a straight red card and playing into the wind it looked there was only going to be one winner. However the home team dug deep and Matthew Ace landed the equalising score to ensure the points were shared on a final score of 0-9 to 1-6.

Ardboe had a very comfortable afternoon at home to Derrylaughan.  All Star nominee John McConville bagged two goals for the Rossas and Michael Lynn was also on goal target for the home side.  Shea McGuigan scored 0-4 while a second half goal from Ciaran Quinn was Derrylaughan’s only score of the half.  Final Score – Ardboe 3-14 Derrylaughan 1-3

Dromore and Omagh played out a 1-9 to 1-9 draw at Gardrum park this afternoon.  Colm McCullagh was on target for the home side with a first half goal while Ronan O’Neill kicked the equalising point from a free late on.  He finished the match with 1-3.  Final Score – Dromore 1-9 Omagh 1-9

Greencastle lost out at home to Eglish to confirm their place in the relegation playoffs in a couple of weeks time.  Eglish were too hot to handle for the home side in the opening half and were 1-6 to 0-2 ahead at the break.  Peter McCann, Sean McKillon, and Colm Byrne were all on target for Eglish while Mark Carson (0-3) and Christopher Gillen fired over points for Greencastle.  McKillon with a point was Eglish’s only scorer in the second half.  Final Score – Eglish 1-7 Greencastle 0-6
