Moortown returned to senior football winning the Division Two title following a comprehensive 3-13 to 1-11 win over Edendork. The platform for the win was established in the first half as the new champions bagged three goals courtesy of Conor Herron(2) and Darren Quinn. This helped them reach the break 3-8 to 0-6 in front. Edendork made the most of the wind in the second half to close the gap with Darren Mc Curry, Niall Morgan, Peter Mallon and Darragh Conway all on target. However scores from Tony Quinn and Karl Hagan ensured there was to be no nervous finish from the champions elect and they coasted to an eight point win and a league title.

Neil Hagan bagged a goal while Micky Murphy, Sean Murphy and Paul Rafferty were responsible for ten points between them as Galbally easily accounted for a disappointing Gortin side for whom Division Two top scorer Diarmaid Mc Nulty failed to find the target. Eoin Mc Garvey bagged Gortin’s goal while their four points came from Kevin Mc Cullagh(0-3) and Niall Mc Ginn. But Galbally looked like a team on a mission and at one stage led by eleven points before settling for a 1-12 to 1-4 victory.

Stewartstown enjoyed a 2-15 to 1-9 win over recently crowned Intermediate champions Eskra with their goals coming from Gareth Devlin and Gareth Devlin while Macauley Quinn, Ryan Devlin and Gareth Devlin were among the points for the Harps. Eskra looked a little jaded which is understandable and their performance lacked the edge of last Sunday’s. Fergal Arkinson scored the Emmetts’ goal while Peter Hughes and Neil Meegan landed points for their side.

Kildress snatched a late win over Rock on a score line of 1-12 to 1-11. This was very much a game of two halves with the wind affecting the outcome considerably. Rock had the benefit of the elements in the first half and with Conor Mc Creesh on form they built up a half time 1-8 to 0-4 lead. Matthew Haigney was responsible for two of his team’s four first half points. Des Treacy helped lead the Kildress fightback in the second half with several fine points but with the teams level on 1-11 apiece Colm Loughran put Kildress one ahead. Conor Mc Creesh had one last chance to salvage something for Rock but failed to convert and the Wolfe Tones held on to win narrowly.

Strabane Sigersons travelled to their North Tyrone neighbours Aghyaran needing to win to stay in the hunt for a playoff place. They won indeed but only did so after a real battle with a very game home side. The visitors led at the break 1-4 to 0-4 with Gerald Mc Crossan’s goal proving key. Aghyaran showed their fighting qualities to get back into the game and led 0-10 to 1-6 as the game neared its end with Ronan Mc Hugh, Brian Mc Hugh, Ronan Mc Namee and Michael Anderson all on target. Strabane refused to throw in the towel and a smash and grab was completed when Ryan Mc Elroy found the net almost on the full time whistle to take the points back to Sigerson Park on a final score of 2-6 to 0-10. John Mc Laughlin, JP Gallagher and Marc Devine were all on target for the winners.

Urney maintained their recent good run of league form defeating the already relegated Clan Na Gael easily. Their victory was all but assured by the break as they led 3-5 to 0-3 with their goals coming from Johnny Lafferty (2) and Jamie Mc Aleer. The home side continued to dominate after the break and although Clan Na Gael hit points from Patrick Conwell, Michael O’Neill and Rory Blee after the break scores from Stephen Lafferty, Paul Logue and TJ Duffy made sure that Urney took the points.

Urney 3-11 Clann na nGael 0-6
Moortown 3-13 Edendork 1-11
Aghyaran 0-10 Strabane Sigersons 2-6
Galbally 1-12 Gortin 1-4
