Last year’s two promoted sides Edendork and Badoney met on Friday night. Edendork prevailed with fifteen year old Lára Devlin putting on a show. She hit 4-5 in a top class display as the East Tyrone team saw off Badoney on a score line of 9-16 to 1-9. Maeve Maxwell (2-6), Laura Kelly (2-0) and Rosie Morgan (1-1) were also among the goals for the winners. A young Badoney side showed promise and commitment with superb displays from Shauna Cassidy, Kerri Mc Glone, Aoife Daly and Niamh Mc Connell. Mc Glone hit 1-3 of her team’s total while Dearbhla Mc Donald (3), Niamh Mc Connell (3)  and Shauna Cassidy were among the points

Only a single point separated Omagh and Cookstown on Friday night with the Fr Rocks claiming the win 0-8 to 1-4. Omagh lacked a real scoring threat up front and it showed on the score board. They led 1-3 to 0-4 at the break and only managed a single point in the second half. Maeve Mc Sorley scored the only goal of the game for the St Endas while Christiane Hunter, Breona Colton and Danni Browne (2) shared their four points. Cookstown’s eight points were shared among four players with Mairead Mullan, Aoibhin Devlin, Sarah Mc Neill and Emma Coyle each hitting a brace of scores.

Aodh Ruadh entertained neighbours Donaghmore on Friday night and produced a very complete first performance of the year. They saw off their local rivals 6-19 to 1-10 and as well as recording a twenty four point win they gave run outs to several up and coming young players. Áine Mc Nulty (2-2), Aoife Mc Gahan (1-3), Eimear Lafferty (1-2), Emma Jane Gervin (1-4), Niamh Hughes (1-2), Cara Pinkerton (0-2), Mary Cassidy (0-2) and Ashanti Embalo (0-1) were all on target for the Dungannon outfit. Donaghmore will look on this as part of a learning process with Ciara Mc Crystal and Niamh Mc Nulty particularly rising to the challenge. Mc Nulty started at full forward, bagged an early goal and then moved to midfield to help out Emma Hegarty in her battle with Emma Jane Gervin and Mary Cassidy. Credit also to Beth Moore and Michaela Mc Guigan whose second half scores helped keep the scoreboard turning.

Drumquin lost by six points following a high scoring game against Stewartstown Harps. The final score of 5-6 to 3-6 does not tell half the story of an exciting game between two talented teams. Sara Louise Mc Laughlin was back in Drumquin colours and led the line superbly ably supported by Dayna Collins and Sinéad Mimnagh. Defensively Maeve Mc Elhome and Pauline Browne were outstanding for their team. Dayna Collins (1-1), Jolene Mc Menamin (1-0), Sinéad Mimnagh (1-0), Ava Mc Menamin (0-1), Sara Louise Mc Laughlin (0-2), Grainne Mc Laughlin (0-1) and Courtney Martin (0-1) were on target for the Tones.

Drumragh bounced back from the disappointment of their opening day defeat to Killyclogher with a very good 5-11 to 2-8 win over Mna Na Deirge. Grace O’Neill (2-2) and Beth Donaghy (1-4) top scored for the Sarsfields  who led 3-3 to 0-4 at the break. The foundations for the win were laid over the course of an impressive first half. Clodagh Loughran (1-1) and Ella Smyth (1-1) also found the net while Neamh Woods, Claire Mc Gread and Julieann Quinn were among the points. Shannon Lynch (1-1) and Leah Mc Menamin (1-0) both found the net for the Derg while Sasha Laird (3), Laura Mc Sorley (2) and Chloe Laird (2) were among the points.

Rock 0-5 Galbally 2-6

Galbally ladies made it two wins from two on Friday night with a 7 point win over their neighbours Rock. The Galbally girls started the brighter of the two teams with Maeve McGlinchey and Claire Mc Keown both getting on the scoreboard and causing all sorts of problems for the Rock defence. Rock got their first scores of the night with fine points on 18 and 20 mins to just leave 2 points in the game. Galbally finished the half with a further 1-1, a great goal by Claire McKeown and another point from Maeve McGlinchey to leave the score 1-5 to 0-2 at half time.

Rock got the first 3 points in the second half to leave 3 points between the sides. The Rock defence deserve great credit for the way they kept Galbally scoreless for the first 20 mins of the second half with weather conditions also playing a part.
Galbally’s first score of the 2nd half came  with 10 mins of the game remaining, coming from the right foot of Catherine Walker after a fine individual run. Galbally once again pushed on and a great goal from Ciara Kelly with 5 to go sealed the points for the Galbally girls leaving 7 points in the game.
Credit to the Rock girls they attacked at every opportunity and once again Laura Kane and her defence had to be at their best to stop what looked liked a certain goal with 28 mins on the clock. Emma Bradley, Niamh Lagan (0-2), Eimear Mc Veigh and Leah Bradley did the scoring for Rock.

Kildress made their first appearance of the season at home to Strabane seeing off the challenge of the Sigersons 3-10 to 1-6. Strabane started well with a couple of early points as Michaela Moss caused bother for the Wolfe Tones defence. A long ball to the square was punched to the net by Moss to put the visitors in a strong position. Cathy Connolly and Aoife O ‘Connor began to impose themselves defensively for Kildress and from then until the break Strabane found further scores hard to come by. Tori Mc Laughlin, Crystal Crossan and Rachel Holland were on target for Strabane but Kildress had the bit between the teeth and pulled away to win comfortably. Chloe Tracey (1-7) top scored for the winners while Eimear Mc Garrity (1-0), Anna Lennon (0-1), Maeve Conway (1-1) and Stacy Boone (0-1) were also among the scores.

Moortown made the long journey to Glenmornan on Friday night to face Owen Roes and after a fantastic hour’s football came away with the win on a final score of Owen Roes 3-3 Moortown 5-14. Clodagh Devine and Kaitlyn Coyle both hit the net for the home side in the first half but there was little they could do to stop Moortown reaching the break 4-4 to 2-2 in front. Sarah Devlin bagged a brace while the live wire Caoileann Quinn and Hannah Mc Kernan both netted to leave the loughshore girls in a strong position at the break. A Caoimhe Barr penalty and solid displays from Racheda Kelly, Naomh Barr and Cara Mc Aleer were not enough to prevent a Moortown win. A well worked goal from Chrissie Devlin rounded off the night for the St Malachy’s who were good value for their victory.

There was another parish derby on Friday night as Carrickmore and Loughmacrory locked horns with Carrickmore emerging 2-14 to 1-1 winners. The Carmen girls were dominant from the off and with Gemma Begley leading the line impressively they raced into a 1-9 to no score lead at the break. Ciara Munroe and Aiden Loughran were outstanding in defence and the Loch girls struggled to create scoring chances but Kerri Grimes did kick 1-1 for her team from frees. Gemma Begley hit 1-10 for the winners while  Clodagh Munroe (1-2) and Cait Gormley (0-2) got the rest.

Moy ran out convincing 4-11 to 1-7 winners over Clonoe with Nina Murphy and Emer Currie both hitting 1-4 while Áine Swail bagged two goals for the winners. Catherine Donnelly landed two points, one a huge first half free while the industrious Colleen Mc Cance also got among the scores. After a dominant opening thirty minutes Moy led 2-9 to 1-2 at half time and although Clonoe improved after the break Moy always seemed capable of keeping them at arm’s length.

Aghyaran and Sperrin Óg produced a high scoring and very entertaining clash on Friday night which saw the north Tyrone side emerge victorious 3-13 to 3-10 after a titanic battle between two well matched and talented teams. Niamh O’Neill, who finished the game with 3-9, opened the scoring with three early points. However Aghyaran eventually settled to their task and finished the half leading 1-9 to 0-4 with Sasha Byrne getting the opening Aghyaran goal. Eight points down at the break Sperrin Óg began the second half on fire with three goals from Niamh O’Neill as the home side led by three. Aghyaran steadied the ship and Aimee Coyle added 1-2 to seize the initiative once again. Aoibhin Mc Hugh pointed for Aghyaran to level the game before Sasha Byrne netted deep in injury time to secure the win for the visitors. Final score Sperrin Óg 3-10, Aghyaran 3-13.  Niamh O’Neill finished with 3-9 while Aileen Tuohey got her team’s other point. Aimee Coyle (1-6), Sasha Byrne (2-1), Aoibhin Mc Hugh (0-4), T Mc Hugh and A Byrne did the scoring for Aghyaran.

It was another derby game for Dromore as they took on Fintona in the league on Friday night. There was little between the sides in a competitive opening quarter but Dromore’s ability to plunder goals and some solid defensive play helped them reach the break eight points ahead. The second half saw some excellent football from two very talented sides but it was Dromore who pushed ahead to win 5-16 to 3-6. Ciara Mc Mahon (3-3), Grainne Mac Rory (1-1), Nuala Mc Hugh (1-0), Emma Smyth (0-7), Cathy Teague (0-2), Aoife Hunter, Kate Gallagher and Shauna Mc Nabb with a point each accounted for the Dromore scores. Nichola Donnelly led the scoring for Fintona with six points while Alicia Mc Goldrick (2-0) and Emma Loane (1-1) were also on target.

Trillick looked hugely impressive at Ballinamullen on Friday night as they swept aside the challenge of hosts Killyclogher. County star Emma Brennan and Aoife Seaney both hit the net inside the opening minute. Killyclogher struggled to cope with the pace and direct running of Brennan in particular who finished the game with a personal tally of 4-2. Cathleen Kelly (3-1), Fiona Owens (1-2) and Dearbhaile Gallagher were also on target for the winners. Trillick led 5-5 to a point at the break. Killyclogher improved after the break with Aisling Porter (1-1), Caitlin Kelly (0-6), Emma Mc Aleer (0-1) and Kate Mc Aleer (0-2) on target but they were no match for a rampant Reds side who finished the game 10-7 to 1-10 winners.

Macartans made it two wins from two on Friday night with a very convincing 5-15 to 0-4 win over Errigal Ciaran at Augher. Chloe Mc Caffrey was in fine scoring form hitting two goals in an impressive first half. Cathy Maguire also found the net as the County Champions reached the break leading 3-6 to 0-3. Maria Canavan accounted for all of Errigal’s first half tally while Lycrecia Donaghy landed their only score of the second half. In a dominant display by the winners Chloe Mc Caffrey added a further brace of goals after the break to extend Macartans lead while Tara Meabh Mc Carroll, Cathy Maguire, Joline Donaghy and Tara O’Hagan were among the points.
