On a night when many games fell foul to the weather Killeeshil defeated Castlederg 1-13 to 2-5. Castlederg started the first half strongly and plundered two goals in the opening stages. Although Killeeshil were working hard for each other and were playing well defensively with Aine McCrory and Niamh Canning to the fore, they struggled for scores as the Derg reached half time leading by three.

Aghyaran 1-5 v CNG 0-3
A low scoring game played in awful conditions saw the halftime score 4pts to 2pts to Aghyaran with Cara Byrne scoring all points for the home side. Conditions did not improve after the break but Aghyaran pounced for the only goal of the game from
Kelsie McGuigan who also added a point to her score sheet with CNG just getting the one score. Aghyaran goalkeeper & all their five backs had an outstanding match keeping the CNG forwards on the back foot.
