Castlederg continued on their fine winning run with a one point win away to Killyman on a score line of 0-9 to 0-8. The visitors had looked comfortable in the second half as they led 0-7 to 0-2 at one stage but Killyman came back strongly only to be denied a draw by the clock. Among the Castlederg scorers were Aiden Lynch, Caolan Harvey, Sean Connolly and Mark Corry while Enda Mc Gahan (0-3) and Paul Mc Veigh (0-2) top scored for the home side.

Tattyreagh and Glenelly served up an entertaining game at the north Tyrone venue with the visitors showing good form to reach the break leading 0-6 to 0-4. Top scorer Conor Taggart was once again on target with Chris Mc Carroll, Mark Darcy and veteran Aidy Harley all supplying points. The Tatts were reduced to fourteen men before half time but did enough to hold on for the win with Kevin Gallagher’s two second half scores proving vital. Among the scorers for the home side during a close game were Seamus Harkin, Ronan O’Kane, Conal Mc Cullagh and Kevin Mc Anena.

Fintona defeated Drumquin by a point 4-4 to 1-12 in a game where the Pearses ability to sneak goals proved crucial. Conor Mc Goldrick and Benny Mc Carney (2) plundered majors in the first half and helped Fintona reach the break leading 3-2 to 0-6. Frankie Alynn top scored for the Tones in the first period with three fine points but they showed considerable tenacity to fight back and draw level within three minutes of the restart. Their scores coming from Jamsie Winters and Frankie Mc Alynn and a goal from Fintan Mc Philomeny. Indeed a pointed free from Mc Alynn put Drumquin ahead and with momentum in their favour it seemed that Fintona were heading for defeat. However Aaron Mc Carney levelled again only for Ryan Mc Callion to edge Drumquin in front once more. Fintona sub Sonny Mc Donagh goaled with his first touch of the game and the sides traded points as both went for broke. Drumquin almost stole it at the death when a Ryan Mc Callion scorcher struck the base of the post and Fintona held on to win by one.

Little doubt about the game of the day in Junior football as Beragh and Aghaloo served up a high scoring thriller before the Red Knights emerged victorious on a score line of 2-17 to 1-16. Aghaloo led 0-5 to 0-2 after eight minutes as both sides settled early to the task and an eighteenth minute penalty put them into a strong position as they built up a 1-6 to 0-3 lead after twenty minutes. However with Marty Rodgers and Eddie Molloy to the fore Beragh battled back to reach the break trailing by two 1-7 to 1-5. Beragh continued to play good football and hit the front ten minutes into the second half following scores from Rodgers again, Nathan Grimes and James Mc Nelis.

As the game entered the last quarter it was still very much in the balance when Eddie Molloy struck his second goal of the game and buoyed by this score Beragh maintained their lead and finished deserving four point winners.

Killeeshil had a fairly routine victory away to Drumragh with the basis of the win built on their goal scoring exploits of the first half. Shane Mallon bagged two and Gary Reilly also found the net as the visitors reached the break leading 3-6 to 0-1. Drumragh hit two goals of their own in the second half but Killeeshil were never in trouble as Gary Reilly, Kevin Hughes, Eoin Donaghy, Conal Monaghan, John and Packie Mc Mullan all found the target as they strolled to a 3-14 to 2-2 win.

Dregish lost out to an improving Clogher side 2-12 to 1-10 despite being ahead at the break. Peter Mc Crossan was once again on target with a goal while Aidan O’Kane top scored for his team with six points but it was Clogher’s impressive second half showing that decided the outcome of this one. All six forwards scored on a day when they recovered from being 0-6 to 0-4 behind at the short whistle and score 2-10 of their 2-12 from play. Ciaran Shields (1-2), Fergal Mc Kenna (1-0), Dee Connolly, Cillian Barkey and Mark Bogue 0-2 each were among the scorers for the winners.

Loughmacrory continue to set the pace in Division Three with another comfortable home win this time against Brocagh. The home side was clearly on form and even from early in the game it was clear there was only going to be one winner.They were four points ahead at the break leading 0-10 to 1-3 but hit three goals during a very productive second period which saw them restrict Brocagh to just three points.  John Gallagher, Declan Grimes and Ronan Ward hit goals for the Loch side while Ciaran Ward and Kevin Collins contributed eight points between them as they eased to a 3-14 to 1-6 win.
