There were early games across all three divisions this weekend with the first being the Division Three clash between Errigal Ciaran Thirds and Beragh. In a close first half The Red Knights reached the break 0-7 to 0-6 ahead. Errigal struggled to cope with a confident Beragh side that added ten points to their total in a very convincing second half display. Dara Tierney (3), Michael Harte (2) and Pascal Donnnelly (2) accounted for most of the Errigal points while Niall Owens (5), Jack Campbell (3) and Eddie Molloy led the way for Beragh in the scoring stakes. Final score: Errigal 0-8, Beragh 0-17.

Cookstown played host to Brackaville in Division Two but after a real battle it was the Owen Roes men that left with the points as Brackaville recorded their first win of the season. A first half penalty from Joe Rafferty helped the visitors reach the break 1-11 to 0-7 in front while Owen Mulligan landed four of his team’s seven points.

The home side improved in the second half but in spite of that Brackaville still looked certain to win as they headed into the closing minutes leading by seven points. In the 27th minute Dylan Coyle bagged a brace of goals and suddenly the game changed and there was hope for the Fr Rocks. Indeed the same player came close to adding a third goal in the 29th minute of the second period but settled for a point to level the scores. Brackaville were rocked but responded positively with a goal of their own from Paddy Girvan to put them three ahead again. Cookstown did manage to narrow the gap to a single point but unfortunately for the Fr Rocks time ran out on them and Brackaville recorded their first win of the season on a final score of 2-16 to 2-15.

Moortown made the long run to Aghyaran but came away with nothing to show for their endeavours. The home team began well and opened up a five point lead early on with Ronan Mc Hugh, Cathal Browne and Malachy Martin hitting the scores.

Three Ryan Kelly frees helped bring Moortown back into the game and although it was score for score for much of the second half the Saint Davogs deservedly took the points winning 0-12 to 0-7. Michael Anderson, Gary Leonard, Cathal Browne, Paddy Mc Nulty and Malachy Martin were all on target for the winners while Karl O’Hagan, Ryan Kelly and Tony Quinn hit points for the St. Malachys.

Moy and Derrylaughan played out a very entertaining  draw on Saturday evening. The teams were level on four occasions in the first half so it was no surprise that the game finished level. Kris Kavanagh (4), Peter Mallon (3) and Harry Loughran (3) were Moy’s main target men.

Killyclogher and Omagh served up an entertaining affair at Ballinamullen before the home side emerged four point winners. A first half goal from Tomas Flanagan helped Killyclogher establish a decent platform with Simon O’Neill and Marty Swift adding points that saw the home side lead 1-6 to 0-3 at  the break. Cathal Mc Carron was Omagh’s main attacking threat in a disappointing first half hour for the visitors.

Omagh then hit five of the next six points with Conor O’Donnell, Jason Mc Anulla and Conan Grugan helping get their team back on track. However a point from Leo Meenan steadied the ship for Killyclogher and further scores from Marty Swift, Simon O’Neill and Tiernan Cox ensured the home side recorded their fourth win of the season.

Final score: Killyclogher 1-11, Omagh 0-10.
