Dromore Move To The Summit As Errigal Taste Defeat.
Division One in the All County League saw several very competitive games over the weekend with much of the focus on the result of the game of the weekend at Dunmoyle. Errigal Ciaran went into that game defending not only an unbeaten home record for this year but one that stretches back almost four years. In a low scoring game where defences were very much on top, Errigal appeared to miss their county players much more than Carrickmore did. Games between these two sides are always competitive and this one was no different but Kieran Mc Bride’s side made the most of their limited opportunities and their greater physicality told in the end as they edged out a nervy encounter by two points 0-8 to 0-6.
While all this was happening Dromore were struggling to beat a Moy team who produced an inspired second half to take this one right to the wire. Former county minor player Peter Mallon was outstanding for his team and the home side could not cope with his ability to win ball and take scores. Games and wins like these sometimes define seasons for teams but the end results see Dromore move to the top of the table as the only unbeaten side in the division while Carrickmore not only defeated their great rivals but also moved ahead of them on the table.
While the top is tight the teams from seventh to fifteenth are separated by only two points and the next two or three games will have a major bearing on the prospects of these clubs. A couple of defeats could spell disaster while a win or two would propel any of the teams in the bottom six into the top half of the table. It is coming to the boil nicely and has the makings of the most competitive Division One for years.
