It was a very busy weekend of matches in division three of the All County League with games Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Following wins for Dungannon and Fintona in the first games of the weekend there were four fixtures down for decision on Saturday. The most impressive of the wins was by Dregish who made the long run to Killyman and came away with another two points after a 1-11 to 1-09 victory. Although it was a scrappy enough game Dregish won’t be complaining as they continue their climb up the table. Pete Mc Crossan bagged 1-02 for his side while Johnny Doherty hit five important points. Also on the scoreboard were Stephen Breen 0-1 and Mark Catterson 0-3.
Their near neighbours Newtownstewart led 0-7 to 0-5 at half time against Tattyreagh but had to settle for a share of the spoils 0-12 to 1-9 with Chris Mc Carroll getting the all important goal for the Tatts while Conor Taggart, Ciaran Harkin and Barry Montgomery were also on target for their side. The second half was a tight, close fought affair and overall a draw was a fair result.
Castlederg got the better of Drumragh in their game despite finishing with only thirteen men following two second half dismissals. Mark Corry, Tony Breen and Sean Meehan were on target for the Derg while Marty Taggart once again showed his worth to Drumragh but the visitors led 0-7 to 0-5 at the break. A goal early in the second half from Mark Corry proved to be the key score as Castlederg held on to win 1-09 to 0-10 as Drumragh piled on the pressure in an attempt to salvage something from the game.
Beragh came from five down against Aghaloo twenty minutes in to level the match by half time. A goal from Marty Rodgers five minutes before the break inspired his team’s comeback. However in spite of the best efforts of Rodgers and Niall Owens a goal on eighteen minutes from Cathal Cuddy proved to be the decisive score as Aghaloo held on to win 1-11 to 1-09. Tiarnan Donnelly top scored for the winners with five points to his name.
Brackaville maintained their perfect start to the sesaon with a comfortbale 3-12 to 1-8 success at home to Errigal Ciaran Thirds. Sean McNally grabbed two goals for the Roes with Gary Ferguson also finding the net while Rian McHugh, Martin Gervin and Sean Corr all contributed points. Peter Loughran got the visitors goal with Michael Harte and Aidan Quinn scoring points.
