There was a real top of the table clash at Clogher with the home side getting the better of Killeeshil on a scoreline of 2-15 to 0-14. The first half was a tight affair but Clogher reached the break two in front leading 1-7 to 0-8 with the first of two goals from Jamie Callaghan proving signficant. Killeeshil battled hard in the second half but Clogher’s second Callaghan goal ended the game as a contest. Shane Mallon, Gary Reilly and Packie Mc Mullan were among the point scorers for the losers.
Castlederg enjoyed another derby victory with an eight point win over Newtownstewart this afternoon. After a fairly even start that saw the sides trade points at 0-4 apiece, Mark Corry converted a penalty following a foul on Caolan Harvey. Steafan Gallen added a second goal to put the home side in a strong position but Catterson was penalised for a footblock and Newtown closed the gap with a goal from the resultant penalty courtesy of Ryan Mayse. Indeed Mayse finished up hitting 1-7 of his team’s total in a very good individual showing from the young forward. The half time score read Castlederg 2-6, Newtownstewart 1-5. Corry and Gallen continued their fine scoring form in the second half and although the visitors improved somewhat after the break the home side ran out deserving winners on a final score of 2-14 to 1-9.
Friday night saw important Division Three league wins for Fintona over Drumragh and Owen Roes in their clash with Drumquin. The Pearses continued their fine run with a very convincing 4-12 to 1-8 victory over a disappointing Sarsfield’s side that found the pace and quality of their hosts too hot to handle.
Fintona did most of their scoring in the opening half with goals from Niall Mellon, Markie Donnelly and Kevin Mc Girr while Conor Mc Goldrick, Mark Donnelly and Tom Mc Grath each hit a brace of first half points. Gareth Starrs hit the net for Drumragh and Marty Taggart landed two points but the home side were not to be denied and eased to a comfortable thirteen point win.
Owen Roes recovered from the disappointment of their narrow defeat against Castlederg last time out to record a morale boosting win over Drumquin. Owen Roes dominated the opening half and built up a six point lead at the break with Cathal Mc Shane top scoring with four points.
Drumquin produced a spirited second half and Frankie Mc Alynn’s 39th minute goal set the Owen Roes alarm bels ringing. The Wolfe Tones staged a fine second half comeback but scores from Mc Shane and Brendan Boggs ensured that Owen Roes picked up the win.
