J & K Coaches U16 Wrap Up
Carrickmore made it three wins out of three to lead the way at the summit of the grade one table after a hugely impressive win at home to Trillick. Shea Monroe, Pheilm McElhone and Vincent Gormley were all among the scorers for the St.Colmcilles on a day when they also had good displays from Sean Donnelly, Poggie Donaghy and keeper Conor McPhillips. Trillick were short a few regulars on a day when Tadgh Britton notched 0-4 and Tomas McElholm got 1-1 while Thomas Corrigan and Phelim Kelly both played well.
Cookstown suffered their first defeat of the campaign when they lost away to an Errigal Ciaran side that moved alongside their opponents on four points. The home side recovered from a slow start to lead 2-5 to 1-3 at the break. Paul McGinley, Elliot Kerr and Keelan Neill got the goals for the Dunmoyle based lads with Shea McDermott and Charlie Maguire landing 0-7 between them and Dan Loughran also on target. Mark Devlin top scored for the Father Rocks with 1-2 to his name, Lorcan McMurray and Karl Wawreynkiewicz got 0-3 each while Eoin Long hit a brace.
Fintona are another side with four points under their belts after they secured a comfortable victory at home to Loughmacrory. The Pearses led 2-5 to 1-4 at the break with Diarmuid Martin bagging both goals and Peter Colton, Tiernan Donnelly and Oisin Watson supplying points. In the second half Martin raised another two green flags with Watson and Donnelly also getting goals and Dara McMenamin featuring among the points. Liam Griffiths was outstanding at full back for Fintona, Martin finished with 4-2 but their best player was corner forward Eoin McMenamin who may not have got on the scoresheet but he did serious work throughout the field. Corey McCaughey got the Loughmacrory goal with Michael McNamee, Pearse McDonald and Odhran Curran all supplying points.
Omagh are still looking for their first points off the campaign after goals made the difference as they lost out at home to Ardboe. Darragh Devlin kicked 0-7 for the Rossas with Darcy Mallon weighing in with 1-2 from halfback with Ruairi O’Neill grabbing 1-1 and Ryan Forbes standing out in defence. That result means that Ardboe are one of only two sides in grade one with full points to date although that was only their second outing.
In grade two Kildress suffered their first defeat when lost 4-12 to 2-11 away to Greencastle. Sean Og Teague was in fine form for the winners with 1-7 to his name while Caolan Treacy, Shane Molloy and Sean Og Harte got their other majors. The sides were level at the interval but centre half back Eoghan Conway set the tone for the second half with two magnificent points and this was followed by Harte’s goal. Kildress rallied to close the gap to the minimum but Greencastle finished stronger with points from Shea Treacy and Teague. Daniel Heagney was the goal scorer for the Wolfe Tones in the first half and James Mulgrew scored a fantastic solo goal in the second period. Best on the day for Kildress were Mulgrew, Heagney and Liam Loughran.
Both Domhnaigh made the trip to play Killeeshil and they returned home with both points in the bag after edging the verdict by the minimum margin, 2-16 to 2-15. The visitors full back line of Peadar O’Neill, Cormac McCullagh and Joseph Coyle was solid and points from Lucas McGarvey, Harley Patten and Sean Harley coupled with a Mark Kennedy goal left the winners five in front at the short whistle. The home side fought back in the second half but Both Domhnaigh just did enough to hold on with Patten finishing with an impressive 1-7 to his name, Kennedy got 1-5 with McGarvey 0-2, Harley and Nathan McGrinder also on target.
Drumquin managed to hold off Urney in a high scoring clash, 3-12 to 4-8. Tristan Devine, Eoin Ferris and Kieran McDonagh got the goals for the Wolfe Tones with Caoilinn Sharkey having an excellent game for the winners in goals and Joseph Kearney, Harry McMenamin and Hugh Gormley all to the fore in defence for the winners. Shaquille Oke hit 2-1 for the St.Columbas with Cori McCrea grabbing two goals and Aidan Devine 3, Conor Redstone 2, Jamie Finley and Sean McLaughlin all supplying points on a day when Urney were best served by Noah Connolly, Oke, Devine and McCrea.
Eskra lead the way at the summit of the grade 3 table after they made it four wins out of four when beating Owen Roes 6-14 to 4-13. Dara McGarvey led the way in the scoring stakes for the Emmets with 3-5 to his name, Eoin McEvoy wasn’t far behind him with 2-5 while Ronan Donnelly 1-2, Patrick McCarney and Matthew McKenna were all on target as well. Eoin McKenna was a rock at the back for Eskra, in midfield Matthew McKenna had a great battle with the Roes’ Oisin Kelly while up front McGarvey, McEvoy and Donnelly were always a constant threat for the winners.
It proved to be a high scoring encounter at the Loughshore as Ardboe shaded the verdict against Errigal Ciaran in the Development league, 5-9 to 5-7. Delaney Lavery was the star man for the Rossas with 3-1 to his name while Thomas Kelly weighed in with 1-1. The visitors had some fine scores from Michael McDermott, Ronan Fleming and Jamie Martin while in defence Niall Kelly, Neil Conroy and Senan McGarvey were outstanding with Matthew Hackett turning in a strong performance in midfield.

Castlederg remain unbeaten in grade four and joint top of the table after winning away to Clogher. It was a good all round team display from the winners with Owen Bradley, Cahir Keenan, Oisin Lynch, Coran McConnell, Finn McLaughlin and Shea Leonard in particular to the fore while special mention has to go to the tight marking Padraig Corry in defence. Michael Lowry and Niall Mc Kenna hit the net for Clogher while Vincent Lowry was among the points. Dara Stewart was the stand out performer in defence.
