Errigal Ciaran Thirds recorded their first win of the season with a hard fought but deserved 3-10 to 0-17 win over an injury hit Fintona side.
Three first half goals from Cahir Tierney (2) and Daisy Mc Dermott put the Dunmoyle lads in a very strong position at the break leading 3-5 to 0-8. Cathal Starrs hit five first half points for Fintona while Mark Mc Glynn (2) and Aidan Donnelly also found the target for the Pearses.
Fintona knew they had a mountain to climb for the second half but two early scores from Cathal Starrs gave them hope. Indeed six unanswered points during the second half from Mark Mc Glynn (3), Cathal Starrs (2) and Aidan Donnelly took them to within a point of Errigal.
However when it was needed most up stepped the experienced Damian Dasher Mc Dermott to score the point that secured the win for Errigal.
