Saturday’s double header at the perfectly presented Augher complex resulted in convincing wins for Brocagh and Eskra. Brocagh had seven points to spare in their 1-14 to 0-10 win over Fintona while Eskra saw off a spirited Dregish side 2-21 to 0-8.

In the opening game Brocagh and Fintona swapped points early on and were level at two apiece after ten minutes with Mickey Hughes landing points for Brocagh and Mark Mc Glinn and Niall Murray on target for the Pearses.

Justin Campbell then got the all important goal for Brocagh and that score was to prove significant throughout as Fintona struggled to close the gap.

After an eventful first half Brocagh were 1-7 to 0-6 clear with Mc Glinn and Padraig Kelly getting the Fintona scores while Justin Campbell and Hughes did most of the scoring for Brocagh.

The second half saw Fintona coming more into the game with wing back Eugene Mc Carroll outstanding. However in spite of his best efforts there was little he or his team could do to deny Brocagh a deserved win. Murray and Cain Hamilton got second half scores for Fintona while Ciaran and Cathal Donnelly as well as Mickey Hughes were among the scorers for Brocagh.

The second game saw a very impressive Eskra team put on a show as they defeated Dregish comfortably. Joe Mc Carroll (4), Cathal Meegan (1-6) and Paul Turbett (1-5) accounted for most of their team’s scores while nippy corner forward Mickey Woods was outstanding throughout the hour.

A Paul Turbett penalty and fine Cathal Meegan finish put Eskra in control from early on  in this one and from there to the end of the first half Eskra played some superb football. In fairness to Dregish they battled hard and Pete Mc Crossan and David O’Reilly hit some superb scores.

However the game was over as a contest by half time and the second period lacked the pace, intensity and quality of the first. Eskra ran their bench and that definitely impacted on their performance levels. In spite of missing several great chances the Emmetts continued to add scores and ran out comfortable winners at the end. Dregish will look back at this one and regret the number of missed chances they ran up in the second half.
