Michael Cassidy, Peter O’Neill, Joe Quinn and Oliver Mallaghan all played well for Ardboe.
Donaghmore made the short trip to O’Neill Park to play Dungannon and the St.Patricks emerged 3-12 to 1-7 winners. The visitors led by seven points at the break with Aidan McCloskey and Richard Kelly both scoring goals but on the restart Sean Molloy found the net for the Clarkes. Donaghmore though responded with three Philip Donnelly points before a late Deasun Quinn goal put the icing on the cake on a night when Conal Christie, Cormac McCann and Shea Hamill were among the winners’ best performers.
Galbally picked up their first win of the campaign when they beat Eskra 3-12 to 2-4 at Pearse Park. Martin Murphy and Conor Quinn were to the fore for the winners with Sean Wylie and Niall Nugent both scoring goals and Neil Hagan, Sean Murphy and Aidan Nugent featuring among the points. Killeeshil picked up another win when they edged out Fintona 3-12 to 2-11. Daire Martin top scored for the St.Marys with 1-5 to his name with Eoghan Donaghy hitting 1-2.

Errigal Ciaran beat Omagh 1-10 to 0-8 with Mark Kavanagh scoring a goal from the penalty spot as well as hitting two points while Fergal Kelly and Sean McKenna got a trio of points each and Tommy Traynor grabbed a brace.
Killyclogher made the short run up to Loughmacrory and came away with a 2-14 to 1-11 win in a high scoring and entertaining game. The away team started well with points from Mark Kelly and Conall Mc Cann putting them on top. A Stevie Kelly goal five minutes before the break put Killyclogher in a very strong position leading 1-7 to 2 points but a goal and a point from Loughmacrory as half time approached left only four points between the sides. Killyclogher managed to open up an eight point lead midway through the second half but once again the home side came back strongly to narrow the gap to two points. With all to play for a goal from Mattie Mc Cloy sealed the win for the visitors and earned them another two league points.
