There were two games remaining in Division Three with Errigal Thirds taking on Urney and Donaghmore Thirds facing Aghaloo. A determined display from the Dunmoyle lads secured a win and the two points as an understrength Urney side lost out 2-10 to 1-10. Darren Canavan hit five points for the winners while their goals came from Jimmy Harte and Ben Mc Dermott while Davy Harte (2), Ronan Mc Crory (1) and Ciaran Mc Ginley were also among the points. Jamie Mc Aleer top scored for Urney with 0-7 while Ryan Henry bagged 1-2.

Tiernan Donnelly (1-5) and Jody Mc Glone (1-2) led the scoring for Aghaloo as they confidently put Donaghmore to the sword. Leading 1-7 to 0-1 at the break Aghaloo maintained the pace and added a further 1-10 to their total as they claimed another brace of points. Gary O’Gorman, Enda Mc Garrity, Conor Mullen and Gerard Daly were among the points for the men in red and black. With neighbours and rivals Augher up next for Aghaloo this was ideal preparation for that one.

The match of the evening in Division Three saw the unbeaten pairing of Drumquin and Fintona meet at Mc Girr Park. The Pearses set down something of a marker with a very assured performance before emerging 1-9 to 0-10 winners over the home side. Drumquin will look back on this one with a fair degree of regret as a result of their profligacy in front of goals especially in the second half. Fintona started well with Cormac Watson and Conor Mc Goldrick bossing the midfield exchanges and giving the Pearses a superb attacking platform. They reached the break leading 0-6 to 0-4 with Watson, Conor Mc Gillion, Pauric Kelly, Caolan Donnelly and Cathal Gillespie all on target while Oisin Gormley hit all of Drumquin’s first half scores. The Tones improved after the break and put Fintona under huge pressure at times but the Pearses full back line stood strong with Mark Mc Glinn, Marius Monaghan and Conor Mc Gowan outstanding. Sean Mc Donagh and Oisin Gormley grabbed early second half points for Drumquin before the game turned when substitute Tommy Mc Grath sidestepped Declan Taggart in goals and finished to the net. Drumquin threw on veteran Liam Patterson but they could not get the goal they needed to turn the game and Fintona made it four wins from four starts.

Derrytresk and Killyman met in another derby game with the Hillmen emerging comfortable winners on a score line of 1-13 to 0-8 having led at the break 0-7 to 0-3.  Niall Gavin (1-7) top scored once more with Aidan Gavin, James Gavin, Caolan O’Donnell, Diarmuid Mc Kee and Paul Greville among the points. Michael Donnelly (3) was scorer in chief for Killyman with Enda Mc Gahan (3) and Ronan Mc Veigh (2) also on target.

It was another high scoring game between Drumragh and CNG that saw the Sarsfields score three late second half goals to come from behind and win 5-7 to 1-12. At half time CNG led 0-8 to 1-2 and will feel they should have had something out of this game. Shea Browne (1-6) top scored for CNG with Gareth Mc Dermott (2), Ciaran Kerlin (2), Damian Ball and Johnny Knox also on target. Niall Mc Carney bagged 2-3 for Drumragh while Shane Devine (1-1), Kevin Marron (1-1), Daniel O’Neill (1-1) and Eoin Montgomery were also on target for their side as they made it four wins from four starts.

Brocagh got back to winning ways with a convincing 5-10 to 0-10 victory over a very young Castlederg side who are facing a difficult season. By half time the Derg were 3-5 to 0-5 behind and struggling against their hosts. Brandon Mc Kiver (2-0), Ciaran Campbell (1-0), Oisin Roper (1-1), Eoin O’Neill (1-0), Mickey Hughes (4), Conan Mc Donald (1), James Mc Kiver (2) and Donal Robinson (2) accounted for the Brocagh scores while Daire Corry (5), Darren Traynor (2) and Tommy Mc Menamin were on target for a depleted Derg side.

Augher have made a good start to the season and they continued on their winning ways with a 2-7 to 0-12 win over neighbours Eskra on Friday night having led 1-5 to 0-5 at the break. On a night when scoring machine Darragh Kavanagh hit 0-1 it took a late penalty from Rory Cassidy to determine the outcome of this one. Eoghan Keenan hit Augher’s first half goal while Pascal Gormley (3), Marty Mc Elhatton (1), Ronan Mc Elroy (1) and Raymond Mc Elroy were also on target. Cathal Meegan proved his worth to his Eskra side hitting 0-6 with Niall Marlowe, Joe Mc Carroll, Aaron Kelly and Paul Turbett also contributing.

Cookstown also remain unbeaten after they pulled away from Brackaville late in the game to make it four wins from four. With the game entering the last ten minutes Brackaville trailed by four but it was Cookstown who finished the stronger to run out 1-17 to 1-8 winners. Scoring ace Matthew Carberry hit 0-6 with John Gilmore (1-2), Marty Murray (3), Seamus Glackin (2), Ruairi Devlin (1) and Michael Oscar Devlin (1) all among the points. Ronan Mc Hugh was in scoring form for Brackaville with 0-4 while Gary Ferguson (1-1) and Shea Fee (3) were also on target for the Roes.

Errigal Thirds recorded their first win of the season with victory over Urney on Saturday afternoon. Darren Canavan led the line well for Errigal hitting 0-5 of his team’s 2-10 tally. Their goals came from Jimmy Harte and Ben Mc Dermott while Davy Harte (2), Ronan Mc Rory (1), Ciaran Mc Ginley (1) and Dasher Mc Dermott (1) were among the points in a 2-10 to 1-10 win.
