Derrylaughan and Dromore emerged victorious from Sunday night’s double header at Dunmoyle which attracted a crowd of almost four thousand hardy souls . The Kevin Barry’s laid the foundations for victory in an impressive, controlled half of football against the wind in the opening thirty minutes. Darragh Carney hit three fine frees to help his side reach the break 0-7 to 0-5 in front. Aghyaran failed to make the best use of the elements in the first half and struggled to get support to Michael Anderson on the edge of the square. The normally reliable Ronan Mc Hugh found the windy conditions hard to deal with as the St Davogs turned around to face the wind two behind.

Aghyaran did improve after the break but Shea Coney’s accuracy from frees ensured Derrylaughan kept them at  arm’s length. A converted Ronan Mc Hugh penalty eight minutes from time gave the North Tyrone side hope but three unanswered points from Kelly, Carney and Robinson saw Derrylaughan home safely 0-15 to 1-6.

Dromore and Ardboe produced a compelling game of championship football in Sunday’s second fixture which kept the large crowd at Dunmoyle entertained. Dromore began well but were made work hard for scores in a very hard fought first half. Eoin Mc Cusker (2), Colm Mc Cullagh, Sean Mc Donnell and Ruairi Sludden all found the target but quality scores from Brian Mc Guigan and Oisin Devlin gave the Rossas cause for hope as the first half ended 0-5 to 0-2 to Ardboe.

The loughshore lads upped the pace after the break dominating the opening exchanges. However they were rocked back on their heels when Eoin Mc Cusker broke through and struck an unstoppable shot to the net to put his side five clear. Ardboe hit three in a row to close the gap but Mc Cusker pointed again to keep Dromore four in front.

Ardboe sensed the game was there for the taking and scores from Kyle Coney and Michael Lynn closed the gap to two. Dromore were under pressure and when it was needed most Niall Sludden popped up with two quality scores to put the blues in pole position. Ardboe continued to push hard but Dromore’s experienced players stepped up to the plate to send their side through to the quarter finals on a final score of 1-10 to 0-8.
