The battle of the Emmetts saw Eskra heading to the Lough shore on Friday evening to take on Brocagh.

Johnny Hackett hit 1-2 in the opening half while there were points from Tiernan Mc Cafffrey, Thomas Meegan, Eoin Mc Caffrey and Joe Mc Carroll. Brocagh did hit five second half points but Eskra remained on top and added a further 1-7 to their tally to emerge convincing 2-13 to 0-7 winners. Eskra’s second goal came late in the game  from Cathal Meegan while there were second half points from Johnny Hackett (2)Aaron Kelly, Cathal Meegan (2) and Joe Mc Carroll (2).

Cookstown maintained their good start to the season with a comprehensive 4-17 to 1-7 win over Killyman on Friday night having led 3-8 to 1-5 at the break. Matthew Carberry was once more top scorer for Fr Rocks with 1-7 while Callan Kelly (1-0), John Gilmore (1-2) and Conor O’Neill (1-1) also found the net for Cookstown. Meanwhile Michael Donnelly chipped in with 1-1 for Killyman with Enda Mc Gahan (0-4), Gary Hamill and Ronan Mc Veigh also on target with points.

Derrytresk and Donaghmore Thirds locked horns on Wednesday evening with the Hillmen coming out on top on a score line of 0-14 to 1-6. It could have been much closer for Derrytresk but for a brilliant Sean Slater save with seven minutes remaining. Niall Gavin was back on form hitting 0-8 for the winners while Aidan Gavin, Caolan O’Donnell, Ronan O’Neill, Leon Mc Erlane and Eoin Mc Nally were also among the points.

Aghaloo found their shooting boots with a high scoring 2-15 to 1-11 win over an improving Clan na nGael side. A point separated the teams at the break with a Jody Mc Glone (1-6) inspired side Aghaloo leading 1-7 to 1-6. Niall Henderson showed his worth to the team hitting 1-4 while Tiernan Donnelly (4) and Conor Mullen (2) contributed points for the winners. CNG will be disappointed with their second half but with Jody Mc Glone driving them on Aghaloo were good value for their win. Shea Browne led the scoring for CNG with 0-7  with their goal coming from Johnny Knox. Dee Ball (2), Ciaran Kerlin and Gareth Mc Dermott were also on target for the north Tyrone lads.

Augher bounced back from their defeat to Fintona last weekend with a 2-11 to 0-11 win over Glenelly. Unsurprisingly Darragh Kavanagh was scorer in chief for the St Macartans hitting 2-7 with his two second half goals proving crucial in the final outcome. Augher’s other four points came from Pascal Gormley , Aidan Mc Elroy, Marty Mc Elhatton and Finnbar Mc Elroy. Only a point separated the sides at the break as Glenelly led 0-5 to 0-4 with two of their points coming from goalkeeper Conor Mc Aneney. Rory Kennedy hit four of his team’s points while Lorcan Mc Cullagh (2), Cormac Mc Bride and Cathal O’Neill were also on target for a Glenelly side stil looking for their first win of the season.

Drumquin are certainly running up the scores with Sean Mc Donagh (2-1), Oisin Gormley (4) and Finnan Patterson (4) leading the way for the Wolfe Tones. They were at it again on Friday night seeing off the challenge of Urney winning 2-17 to 0-11 to sit proudly at the top of Division Three on score difference. Former county player Johnny Lafferty hit seven of his team’s eleven points with Jamie Mc Aleer (3) and Mark Lafferty (1) rounding off the Urney scoring.

Fintona travelled up to Brackaville on Friday night and showed their intent with a 1-19 to 0-8 win over the Roes.

The scoring was completed with points from Aidan Donnelly, Eugene Mc Carroll, Tommy Mc Grath, Tom Gavin and Conor Mc Goldrick.

Castlederg are still looking for their first points of the season after hosting an impressive Drumragh Sarsfields side on Friday night.

Eoin Montgomery (4), Niall Mc Carney (3), Alex Mc Glinchey (2), Kevin Marron, Kian Murphy and Patrick Colgan completed the scoring for the winners.
