Castlederg got their first win of the season coming out on top in their clash with Donaghmore 3rds 1-14 to 1-10.  Daire Corry top scored for the Derg with 0-8 while Adam Traynor (1-2), Dominic Mc Goldrick, Padraig Keyes, Cian Harper and Matthew Mc Menamin completed the scoring.

Drumquin are still making waves in the league having defeated Derrytresk in their rearranged league fixture at the weekend. Oisin Gormley (1-4) and Sean Mc Donagh (1-1) got the all important goals for the Tones while Frankie Mc Alynn (4) and Finnen Patterson completed the scoring. Final score 2-10 to 0-9 for Drumquin.

Errigal Thirds came close to causing quite a shock in the league when they pushed Cookstown all the way in their clash before losing narrowly 3-7 to 1-10. There was little between the sides in the first half with Cookstown leading 1-4 to 0-4 at the break. John Gilmore hit the net inside the opening minute for  Cookstown but in truth it was a close and competitive opening half. Errigal points from Davy Harte, Daniel Blake and Ciaran Mc Ginley made for a tight opening thirty minutes. Goals from Gilmore and Ruairi Mullan after the break put Cookstown in the driving seat but great goalkeeping from an inspired John Devine plus a superb goal from Davy Harte kept the game honest. Unfortunately for Errigal they ran out of time and Cookstown took a step closer to claiming the Division 3 League title. Errigal scorers: Davy Harte 1-3, Daniel Blake 0-3, Michael Quinn 0-2, Ciaran Mc Ginley 0-2. Cookstown scorers : John Gilmore 2-0, Matthew Carberry 0-2, Conor O’Neill 0-1, Michael Mc Elhatton 0-3, Conor O’Hare 0-1, Ruairi Mullan 1-0.

Drumragh had seven points to spare against Augher 0-15 to 0-8 with seven different scorers on the night. Centre back Paddy Colgan, Kevin Marron, Niall Mc Carney, Shane Devine, Malachy Mc Manus, Ronan Maguire, Tommy Murphy and Ben Monk were all on target while Kian Murphy top scored with 0-4. A below par Augher side will be disappointed with their scoring return and finishing. Darragh Kavanagh, Liam Connolly, Pascal Gormley, Declan Connolly and Tiernan Mc Elroy each bagged a point while Ronan Mc Elroy top scored for Augher with 0-2.

Glenelly hit form in their clash with Brocagh bagging three first half goals from Garrett and Cathal O’Neill to lead at the break 3-7 to 0-8. Brocagh battled hard but the half time gap proved too much and Glenelly ran out 3-14 to 0-13 winners. Seamus Harkin (4), Cormac Mc Bride (2), Lorcan Mc Cullagh, Cormac Mc Cullagh and Brian Mc Connell were among the scorers for the north Tyrone side while Owen Canavan, James Mc Kiver, Dean Canavan (2), Paddy Canavan, Mark Canavan, Aidan Dorman (2), Michael Robinson and Mickey Hughes (4) were all among the points for the Lough shore men.

Fintona defeated Killyman 1-22 to 1-7 with the recently returned Aaron Mc Carney top scoring with 0-8 for the Pearses. Conor Mc Gillion was another man in scoring form clipping over six points while Peter Mc Glinn hit the net for Fintona four minutes before the break. Zach Devine, Jared Brogan and Odhran Hughes also got among the points in the second half. Ronan Mc Veigh converted a penalty for Killyman and also added a brace of points while Enda Mc Gahan (3), Ryan Mc Kenna and Gary Hamill completed the scoring for their side.

Brackaville and Aghaloo served up a Friday night feast of football with Aghaloo emerging 3-15 to 1-19 winners over the Roes. With the teams level at 0-13 apiece at the break there was little between them throughout the evening and it was no surprise that only two points separated the teams at the end. Ruairi Mc Glone (1-4), Niall Mc Elroy (1-3) and Jody Mc Glone (1-1) each found the net for Aghaloo while Patryk Kinder (0-2) and Stewart Douglas were among the points. For an improving Brackaville side Jason O’Neill (3), Tiernan Mc Glinchey (3), Gary Ferguson (4), Dale Mc Sorley (5) and Ciaran Gervin were among the points while their first half goal came courtesy of Ronan Mc Hugh.

There was only a point between Urney and Eskra on Friday night with the home side winning 1-12 to 1-11. Stevie Lafferty top scored for Urney with 1-3 while the ever reliable Johnny Lafferty hit four points for his side. The Urney scoring was completed by Mark Lafferty (0-2), Jamie Mc Aleer (0-2) and Sean Hughes (0-1). Missing the scoring return of Joe Mc Carroll Eskra just came up short on the night. Thomas Meegan hit the net after twelve minutes while Niall Marlow, Cathal Meegan (4), Micky Woods (3), Conor O’Hagan, Aaron Kelly and Fergal Arkinson were all on target for the Emmetts but it was not enough to deny Urney a badly needed win.
