Mixed Fortunes For Tyrone Sides In Ulster Leagues
Tyrone clubs had a fifty percent return in the Ulster senior league at the weekend with three winning and three experiencing defeat. Trillick made it three wins in a row when they defeated Longstone 2-8 to 1-7 with Niall Gormley and Philip McGread getting their goals and Shane Gormley among the points. Donaghmore are another side who are unbeaten after they saw off the challenge of Derry side Glenn on a 3-8 to 0-7 score line. There was little between the sides in the opening period with Shane Mulgrew and Richard Hetherington getting points for the visitors and in the second half the St.Patricks took control with Gary Hetherington, Kelvin Hughes and Niall McCaul all scoring goals.
Greencastle picked up their first win of the competition at the third attempt when they saw off the challenge of Aghoill 0-14 to 0-9 with Cahir McCullagh, Enda Clarke and John McCullagh all featuring on the score sheet for the St.Patricks. Cookstown are still looking for their first point but they were unlucky against neighbours Ballinderry as they conceded a late penalty to lose 1-5 to 0-6 with Owen Mulligan among their points. Moortown lost to Greenlough despite a number of Michael Hagan points while Ardboe failed to score as Derry side Glenullin came out on top in a drab affair 0-5 to 0-0.
In the Intermediate league Galbally made it two wins out of two and again they were in fine scoring form as they hammered Down side Dundrum at Pearse Park. Mickey Murphy scored a hat trick of goals, Aidan O’Hagan got a brace while Declan Murphy and Paul Rafferty both found the net as well. Loughmacrory emerged comfortable 3-10 to 1-7 winners over Derry side Claudy with Paul Donnelly the star of the show for the St.Theresas with an impressive haul of 3-3 to his name. Stewartstown are another side who are in fine early season form and that continued at the Mid Ulster Sports Arena in Cookstown when they hammered Donegal outfit Buncrana. Anton Coyle scored two goals with Paul Dillon and Cathal Devlin finding the net as well as they ran out easy winners 4-12 to 0-5.
