Drumragh gained a small measure of revenge over Fintona tonight as they defeated them in a high scoring and entertaining game 2-13 to 3-6. The Sarsfields led 2-5 to 1-3 at the break with their goals coming from Cleary and Taggart. Drumragh had dominated the opening half and should have been further ahead at the break but they allowed Fintona back into the game in the last five minutes of the half. However they recovered their composure during the second thirty minutes and with Peter Bradley in outstanding form at full forward with 0-6, they edged the game deservedly by four points.

Drumquin showed considerable mettle and organisation to win a highly entertaining game with Clogher 3-12 to 1-11. Packie O’Kane continued his recent run of fine form with 2-1 in the first half after the winners had made a great start to the game. They hit the net after two minutes and bossed the game throughout. Although Clogher battled until the end Drumquin continued to dominate and with Ryan Mc Callion in fine form with four points to his name they ran out very convincing winners.

Killeeshil enjoyed a comfortable 3-13 to 1-10 win over Carrickmore Thirds as they continue their push for promotion. Goals from Shane Mallon, Rory Mc Cann and defender Paul Daly put the St Mary’s in a very comfortable position and although Carmen responded with 1-2 from Paddy Mc Elroy in the second half it merely put a gloss on the score.

Owen Roes and Errigal Ciaran IIIs went toe to toe for the second Friday night in succession. Seven days ago the Dunmoyle side had a facile Championship win. In Glenmornan tonight the visitors repeated the dose but on this occasion were highly relieved to take the spoils.The home side had the perfect opportunity to hit the ground running in this contest when they were awarded a second minute penalty. However Ronan Parker missed his spot kick.

Both sides traded points in the opening exchanges. Seamus Dooher, John Harper and Parker all splitting the posts for Owen Roes. Just past the midway point of the first half the home side grabbed the game’s opening goal with Paul Devine the man on target.Errigal though took control of the game again and replied with 1-1 of their own. The visitors second quarter good spell continued as they knocked over four more points from play with Parker and Brendan Boggs the only Leckpatrick scorers during that spell.

Half Time: Owen Roes 1-5 Errigal Ciaran IIIs 1-8

The second half was very much a tale of Errigal maintaining that cushion and absorbing any forays Owen Roes had into their scoring zones. Paul Devine and a Boggs free kept Owen Roes in touch either side of an Errigal free. However with 41 minutes played the travelling support celebrated their second major of the evening.

Errigal may have been playing for points, but Owen Roes were playing for pride, and efforts from Eamon McBride, Boggs and Kiernan Kelly kept this game in the melting pot. Sub Fergal McNulty reduced the lead again as the visitors play off hopes were put on the line. However a decisive third goal for the white shirted Dunmoyle outfit saw them home.

Despite some late Owen Roes probing all they could muster was scores from Kiernan Kelly and Boggs, as Errigal eked the game out to take both points on a final score of Owen roes 1-14, Errigal Ciaran Thirds 3-13.

Castlederg got off to a flying start obtaining the first 2 scores of the game with a 14 yard free by Stefan Gallen and a point from play from Ciaran Harper.  Aghaloo hit back with 3 unanswered points from Gerard McGaughey, Martin O’Neill and then from McGaughey again. Castlederg fought back with an excellent Tony Breen point  Tony Breen. (03-03). Aghaloo then went ahead by 2 points scored by John O’Neill and Gerard McGaughey, score (05-03).

The Derg’s Connor McCallion made a great run from half back to collect the ball from Mark Corry to score a superb point from 40yards. (05-04). Aghaloo won their kick out but a hard working Castlederg won the ball back only to gift possession to Aghaloo’s Brian McKenna resulting in the first major. (1.5-0.4). Castlederg dug deep and hit the next 2 points from Sean Harper and the hard working Mark Corry. (1.5-0.6). Sean Douglas and Kevin O’Gorman scored the next 2 points for Aghaloo but Sean Harper hit the last point of the half for Castlederg to leave the Half Time Score (1.7 – 0.7)

Castlederg started the second half like the first with an excellent point from Ciaran Harper after 20 seconds.  Sean Harper missed a chance to bring the game back to the minimum, Niall Henderson subsequently hit another point for the home side putting them 3 points ahead. McGaughey hit the next point. Score (1.9 – 0.8). Stefan Gallen scored a point for Castlederg to take it to (1.9-09). Aghaloo landed their second major of the game through McGaughey. (2.9-09). Castlederg’s Aidan Lynch set Stefan Gallen up for an excellent point. (2.9 – 0.10). With the game ebbing and flowing McGaughey scored 2.1 without reply for the home side to put the game out of reach of Castlederg but they battled right to the end and Sean Harper got the last point of the game.
