Drumragh have been in fine form of late and that continued over the weekend with a very convincing 3-12 to 0-7 win over an under strength Derrytresk side. An early missed penalty and Derrytresk getting the opening score failed to put the Sarsfields off their stride and by half time they led 1-7 to 0-5. Shane Devine got their opening goal while Kevin Marron, Benny Drumm, Martin Taggart and goalkeeper James Colgan scored first half points for the Sarsfields. Paddy Colgan opened the second half with a superb goal to put his side eight clear and from then there was no way back for Derrytresk. Alex Mc Glinchey was put through by Patrick Colgan for his team’s third goal before late points from James Colgan, Martin Taggart and Benny Drumm sealed the win. On a disappointing day for the Hill Men Caolan Corr, Shea Tennyson, Mickey Robinson, Aidan Gavin and Liam Slater did the scoring.
Eskra continue on their winning ways with a 0-14 to 1-7 win over Brocagh in the battle of the Emmetts but they were made to fight all the way by their opponents.

The second half was a tight affair with Cathal Meegan, Joe Mc Carroll, Eoin Mc Caffrey and Paul Irvine getting the Eskra scores.

The latest North Tyrone derby saw Castlederg claim the points against CNG. Once again Adam Traynor (2-3) led the line for the Derg who bounced back after falling four points behind early in the game. Indeed the home side trailed by two points at the break and only really got on top after CNG went down to fourteen men. Castlederg pushed for the win and took the points on a final score of 2-12 to 0-14. Sean Harper (3) and Patrick Porter (2) were on target for the winners while Danny Ball (4), Gareth Mc Dermott (3), Shea Browne (5) did most of the scoring for CNG.
Cookstown are beginning to build a head of steam and recorded their biggest win of the season defeating Drumquin 2-22 to 0-7. Matthew Carberry was scorer in chief for the Fr Rocks with 1-11 while Peter Mc Gurk (0-6) was a more than decent support act for Carberry. On a disappointing day for Drumquin Ryan Mc Callion (0-1), Daniel Patterson (0-1) and Matty Mc Dermott (0-5) accounted for the Wolfe Tones tally.
Brackaville got the better of Coalisland 3rds in their derby clash winning 1-15 to 2-9. Ronan Mc Hugh led the line superbly for the Roes hitting six of their fifteen points while Shea Fee (2), Jason O’Neill (3) and Tiernan Mc Glinchey (1-1) all made huge contributions to their win.
