Ardboe remain the only unbeaten side in grade 1 after they made it five wins out of five when winning away to Cookstown in a high scoring encounter, 7-7 to 5-5. Darragh Muldoon top scored for the Rossas with 3-1 to his name with Davin McKeown getting a brace of goals and Dylan Devlin and Ruairi O’Neill both finding the net as well while corner back Luke Muldoon weighed in with a brace of points. Karl Wawreynkiewicz 2-1, Charlie McElkerney 1-1, Mark Devlin 1-0, Flynn Neeson 1-0, Rian McIvor, Eoin Long  and Lorcan McMurray were the marksmen for a Father Rocks side that missed a second half penalty.


Dromore made it three wins from half a dozen outings when they had to pull out all the stops to beat Donaghmore 1-11 to 1-9 at Father Devlin Park. Fergal McGurren led the way in the scoring stakes for the St.Dympnas with a goal and four points with Ryan McQuaid [3], Oisin Colton [2] and Adrian McGurren [2] their other scorers. Donaghmore started the game well with points from Conall Heron and Matthew Hamill before Dromore turned things around to lead by three. A goal from the penalty spot from Heron levelled matters but McGurren’s major gave the visitors an advantage that they were never to lose with Donaghmore unlucky to see goal bound shots from Ruairi O’Neill and Ultan Quinn strike the post.


Clonoe collected their second win of the campaign and they did it in style with an emphatic victory at home to Trillick. Daire Devlin, James Adamson, Cathal Donnelly and Brian Lavery got the goals for the Rahillys on a day when they had good performances from Ciaran Drumm, Cathal Donnelly and Daire Devlin. Cahal Kelly and Fintan Doyle got the goals for the St.Macartans.


Galbally made the trip to play Fintona on Tuesday evening and in a clash of the Pearses it was the home side who took the spoils on a 5-9 to 4-5 scoreline. Martin Hurson, Tiernan Corrigan, Finbar Quinn and Leo Quinn got the Galbally goals with Hurson and Ronan Carberry among the points. Darragh O’Neill in goals, Enda Cush and Carberry all played well for Galbally. Oisin Watson hit 2-2 for the winners with Peter Colton, Diarmuid Martin and Paudi Goodman all notching 1-2 each with Tom Gallon also on target.



It proved to be a mixed bag of results for Eglish in grade two as they lost at Cappagh on Saturday before bouncing back on Tuesday night to end the unbeaten record of Pomeroy. Against Cappagh the St.Patricks led by two points at halftime with Daire Fay and Ross Daly both scoring goals and keeper Ronan Donnelly pulling off a good save. Cappagh got on top in the early stages of the second half and despite super performances in the full back line from Christopher Gildernew and Conan Campbell the home side were comfortable winners at the final whistle.


It was much better from Eglish on Tuesday evening as they won 4-11 to 2-8 at Plunkett Park against Pomeroy. Matthew Daly and Ross Daly had points with Brian Og McGuckin scoring a brace of well taken goals to leave wind assisted Eglish on top but Pomeroy closed out the half on top with a goal from Ronan Fitzgerald and points from Ryan McCallan, Shea Rafferty and Sean Kennedy and it took a good save from Eglish keeper Ronan Donnelly to keep them in front. Pomeroy also had points on the night from Paudie Harvey and Peter McGoldrick and had good displays from Caolan Slane and Fergal O’Hara but it was to be Eglish’s night. Substitute Ronan Quinn bagged a couple of goals with further points coming from Matthew Daly and McGuckin helping to win the day. Donnelly in goals was immense for the winners with good performances also coming from Christopher Gildernew, James Daly, Ryan Gildernew, McGuckin and Killian and Ronan Quinn.


Edendork picked up their second win of the campaign to leave neighbours Dungannon still searching for their first points after a close encounter finished 1-15 to 3-8. John McAvoy got the all important goal for the St.Malachys with Conor Mallon and Patrick McLernon both featuring among their points. Dara McIntosh, Conall Bell and Ciaran Loughran got the goals for the Clarkes with Sean Og O’Donnell having a mighty game for them at centre half forward, Eoin Cowan outstanding in defence and Jorge Teixera doing well in nets.


Na Doiri Oga travelled to play Killeeshil and on a night when they didn’t get going they finished up well beaten. Andre Devlin was brilliant up front for the Derrytresk / Derrylaughan select while Caolan Hamill stood out in defence for them.


It proved to be a better result for Na Doiri Oga on Tuesday evening as they edged out Kildress 3-11 to 2-10 with Corbin O’Neill outstanding in goals and Conor McCann, Caolan Lappin, Andre Devlin and Ryan Cushnahan all playing well to.


Coalisland are still in second place in the grade three table after they turned on the style at Father Campbell Park to record a comfortable win over Owen Roes. Ronan Lowe and Oran Nixon both played well up front for the Fianna with Shea Sommerville standing out in their defence.


Rock were in fine scoring form at the Loughshore as they picked up their second win of the campaign with a convincing victory over Moortown. Joel Kerr and Desmond Gourley did the majority of the scoring for the St.Patricks while Alfie Kerr and Caolan Quinn had good games in defence, the latter chipping in with a point, while Aodhan Loughran and Conor Owens both had good games in attack and managed to get their names on the scoresheet as well.



In the development league Cookstown still boast a perfect record after they made it six wins out of six when beating Cappagh. It was level pegging at the break, 4-3 to 3-6, before the Father Rocks pulled away. Lorcan McDermott top scored for the winners with 3-3 while Aidan McElhatton 2-0, Colm Casey 1-2, Conan Gormley 0-4, Frankie Pallet 1-0, Rory Fox 1-0 and Fury Quinn were all on target.


Ardboe are level with Cookstown in the table although they have played a game more after overcoming Donaghmore at the Loughshore. Odhran Coleman notched 1-5 for the Rossas with Conall Molloy and Delaney Lavery scoring 1-2 each and Daire McKeown 1-1. Donaghmore’s goal scorers were David McArdle and Callum Small.



Clonoe are in joint third place thanks to a comprehensive victory at home to Both Domhnaigh. Brian Lavery got a hattrick of goals with Rhys O’Neill [2], Ruairi O’Neill and Paddy Joe Hughes all finding the net as well with good displays as well from Ryan Corr, Fionn Hughes and Sean Donnelly.



Brackaville and Aghaloo played out a thrilling 3-8 to 2-11 draw in grade four. It was Aghaloo who edged the first half but Brackaville dominated after the break and it took a goal from Tiarnan McCarron with virtually the last kick of the game to earn Aghaloo a share off the spoils.  Connor Quinn opened the scoring for Aghaloo before they had keeper Eoin Sweeney to thank for a brilliant save. Quinn added a number of points with Darren McAnespie and Jay McKenna Douglas in midfield also contributing on the scoreboard. Oskar Ratajczak was winning a lot of breaking ball for Aghaloo and when Quinn got a goal on the stroke of halftime Aghaloo went in five points to the good.


In the second half it was a different story as Keelan Heron and Ryan O’Neill both found the net for the Roes until McCarron’s late strike saved the day for Aghaloo. Brackaville had good displays from keeper Matthew Fox with Mark Thompson excellent in the midfield engine room. Sweeney, Senan Treanor, Douglas, Ratajczak, McCarron and Quinn all played well for Aghaloo.
