Na Doiri Oga put up a brave show in the grade two league final before losing out to a strong Dromore side at Newtownstewart.

Ben O’Neill weighed in with a brace of points while Corbin O’Neill got a second major but they had left themselves with too much to do as Dromore ran out worthy winners on the day.
