Carrickmore edged the verdict in their local derby at Loughmacrory to move joint top of the division one table. There was little between the sides throughout with the home side edging the first half thanks to points from Pauraic Meenagh, Ronan Fox and Oisin O’Kane, Mickey Donaghy and Aidan Fullerton among the Carrickmore scorers. Loughmacrory then moved three clear before Carrickmore grabbed a goal from Rory Donnelly either side of Martin Penrose and Mark Donnelly points. Cathaoir Gallagher and Meenagh helped close the gap but Carrickmore held out.
Killyclogher are another side who are joint top of the table despite being held at home by a Derrylaughan side who produced a brilliant second half comeback. Oisin McAteer, Emmet McFadden and Gavin Potter all found the net to leave the home side eight in front. The Kevin Barrys rallied though with points from Ciaran Quinn, Tomas Carney and James Donnelly to level matters and while Conall McCann put the hosts back in front Donnelly struck a late equaliser.
Comebacks were certainly the order of the day as Dungannon came from ten down at Dunmoyle to earn a share off the spoils against Errigal Ciaran. Ryan Lynch, Darragh Canavan and Peter Harte were among the first half points for the hosts and when Cormac Quinn added an early second half goal they looked well in control. Paul Donaghy though was in brilliant form with a number of points and after Paddy Quinn got two goals it was Donaghy who popped up with the late equaliser.
A third draw of the night took place at Father Devlin Park as Donaghmore and Clonoe couldn’t be separated in what was a close encounter throughout. Conor Cush was again to the fore in the scoring stakes for the St.Patricks with Connor McAliskey getting a goal and a few points for the Rahillys including an injury time equaliser. Fintan McClure, James Taggart and Shea Coney were among the points for the visitors as well.
Ardboe came out on top at the Loughshore in a high scoring encounter with Moy. CJ McGourty top scored for the Rossas with Shay McGuigan, Oran Mulgrew and Conall Devlin among the points as well while Cormac Devlin got their goal. Declan Conroy and Donal Jordan both raised green flags for Moy with Ryan Coleman their top scorer on the night and midfielder Matthew Laverty getting a couple as well.
Coalisland staged a fine comeback at Donnelly Park to beat Trillick by the minimum margin. Lee Brennan and Niall Gormley scored goals for the St.Macartans with Ciaran Daly, Daniel McDonnell and Simon Garrity supplying points. The Fianna though kept chipping away with points from Tiernan Quinn, Peter Herron, Bailey Leonard and Paudie Hampsey to win the day.
