There were league wins at the weekend for Urney, Drumragh, Fintona, Eskra, Augher, CNG and Cookstown at the weekend as the race at the top of Division Three heats up.

Cookstown made the long trip to Castlederg and after a tough battle which saw six red cards issued the Fr Rocks eventually saw off an improving Derg side. Cookstown led 0-6 to 0-4 at the break but found themselves a point down after the Derg made a determined start to the second half. However goals from John Gilmore and Matthew Carberry changed the game and Cookstown pulled away to win 2-12 to 0-9. Cookstown scorers Michael Oscar Devlin 0-1, John Gilmore 1-3, Matthew Carberry 1-3, Callan Kelly 0-2, Michael Mc Elhatton 0-2 and Conor O’Hare 0-1.

Drumragh hosted Drumquin on Friday night and showed just why many people are tipping them for success this year. The Wolfe Toned led early on after scores from Sean Mc Donagh and Stephen Gormley but a goal from the returning Tommy Murphy and points from Eoin Montgomery and Niall Mc Carney helped push the Sarsfields clear. Indeed had Drumragh been more accurate with their shooting they could have been out of sight by half time. Drumquin’s talisman Oisin Gormley was well marked throughout but two first half points helped his team reach the break 1-6 to 0-6 behind. Drumragh were strong defensively with Patrick Colgan, Barry Fitzgerald and Ben Monk superb. Finnan Patterson opened the scoring for Drumquin after the break to give them hope but Niall Mc Carney plundered Drumragh’s second goal and the Sarsfields were never threatened after that. Among the scorers for Drumragh were Tommy Murphy, Niall Mc Carney, Eoin Montgomery and Daniel O’Neill. Drumquin will be disappointed with the result and aspects of their performance with scores from Oisin Gormley, Sean Mc Donagh, Stephen Gormley, Finnan Patterson and Mattie Mc Dermott.

CNG got back to winning ways with a 1-18 to 0-9 win over Killyman. The Clan led at the break 0-11 to 0-2 and with Shea Browne (0-11) in imperious form they were never troubled. Gareth Mc Dermott (1-2) got his side’s goal while Dan Houston and Danny Ball both contributed a couple of points apiece. On a tough night for Killyman Enda Mc Gahan (3), Ronan Mc Veigh (3), Gary Hamill, Sean Donnelly and Michael Donnelly were all among the points.

Fintona maintained their fine run of form with a comprehensive 1-16 to 0-5 win over Brocagh on Friday night. The Emmetts found the going tough against a very well drilled home side and struggled for scores. Mickey Hughes, Brandon Mc Kiver and Oisin Roper accounted for their scores on the night. Conor Mc Gillion top scored for Fintona with 0-8 while Caolan Donnelly was the right man in the right place on fifty three minutes for Fintona’s only goal of the game. Tommy Mc Grath (3), Cathal Gillespie, Odhran Hughes (2) and Aidan Donnelly (2) were all among the points for the Pearses.

Urney picked up their first two points of the season following a comfortable 1-16 to 1-7 win over Donaghmore Thirds. This was a game in which Jamie Mc Aleer bagged six of his team’s points. Stephen Lafferty (1-1) and Kyle Henry (1-2) both found the net for the winners while Liam Langan (2), Sean Hughes,Shea Sweeney and Chris Bogle were also among the points.

Errigal Ciaran locked horns with local rivals Eskra on Thursday night and will be disappointed not to have taken something from this one losing out in the end to a last kick of the game score from Cathal Meegan (0-3). Johnny Hackett hit 1-1 for the winners while Joe Mc Carroll (0-4) and Luke Kelly (2) were also among the scores Darren Canavan top scored for Errigal with 0-8 while Ben Mc Dermott (1-2) and Davy Harte (0-2) completed the scoring.

Augher continued their fine run of form with a 2-13 to 0-10 win over Brackaville. The foundations of this win were laid in a fine first half display that saw them reach the break 1-8 to 0-3 in front and they were never really troubled after that. Liam Connolly (1), Odhran Mc Ginn (2), Darragh Kavanagh (1-3), Pascal Gormley (1), Eoghan Keenan (2), Marty Mc Elhatton (1), Finbarr Mc Elroy (1-2) and Cathal Mc Kenna (0-1) accounted for the Augher scores while Shea Fee (3) , Dale Mc Sorley (5) and Rian Mc Hugh got the Brackaville scores.
