Carrickmore played host to Cappagh on Tuesday evening and the St.Colmcilles emerged comfortable 1-14 to 1-3 winners.

On the night the winners were best served by Jarlath Kerr, Sean Donnelly, Cormac Munroe and Ciaran Cuddy. Ben Armstrong got Cappagh’s goal from the penalty spot.


The action then moved onto Wednesday night with a number of games in all three grades. Three in a row chasing Moortown put their poor league form behind them with a resounding 4-13 to 1-10 success at home to Dungannon in a fine all round display from the St.Malachys. Shaun Conway bagged two goals with Jamie Devlin and substitute Mikey Kelly also finding the net while the Devlin brothers James [6] and Eunan [3] were among the points. Tiernan Corr and Rian McLernon also played well for the winners.


Donaghmore turned in an impressive display to comfortably get the better of Clonoe. Things could have been worse for the O’Rahillys but for a number of saves from Cathal Donnelly. Arian Devlin tried hard in midfield, Conall Coyle and Shea McGrath played well in defence while up front Ryan McCabe [2], Ciaran Magee, Brian O’Neill, Ryan O’Neill and Shane Conlon all featured on the scoresheet.


Drumragh played host to Stewartstown and the Sarsfields paid the price for too many mistakes losing 1-11 to 1-9. Best on the night for Drumragh were Michael Roche, James Broderick and Cormac Hurley. Shea Burke top scored for the Harps with seven points to his name with Mark O’Neill [3], Stephen Talbot [1-0] and Peadar Lowe [1] their other marksmen.  Kyran Robinson, Conor Lowe, Nathan McNally, Gerard O’Neill and Cumhai O’Neill all played well for the Harps as well.


Both Domhnaigh proved too strong for Cookstown on a 4-13 to 1-6 score line. Cahir McCullagh, Aodhan McConnell and Cormac McBride [2] got the winners goals with Ciaran Brolly outstanding for the Gortin/ Glenelly combination. It was a fine all round team display with Brolly, S McGarvey, N McLaughlin and S Devine all scoring points.


Ardboe made the short trip to play Loughshore neighbours Derrylaughan and came away with a 4-12 to 2-9 victory. Jordan Bell and Cormac Morgan featured among the goals for the Rossas. Tomas Carney [4], James Donnelly [3], Caeilon Hughes and Caolan Corr were the point scorers for the Kevin Barrys with Cathal Canavan and Conor Donnelly getting their goals.


A late goal from Caoimhin Quinn proved to be the winning score at Pearse Park as Galbally edged out Loughmacrory 1-14 to 1-11. It was 0-6 apiece at the break with Cathaoir Gallagher, Mark Donnelly, Cormac Donnelly, Kieran Holland, Aidan Donaghy and Arnoldas Macidulskas among the points for their respective sides. Quinn put the Pearses in front on the restart but substitute Diarmuid Gallagher hit back with a goal for the visitors. Donnelly and Conor Donaghy brought the sides level and it was point for point until that late Quinn major decided it.


Eoin Donnelly scored four points while Tori Nicholas, Stephen Patton and Ciaran McSorley got one each but Newtownstewart lost by double scores at home to Dromore, 0-14 to 0-7. Emmet McNabb, Caolan McCarron and Cahir Goodwin did the bulk of the scoring for the St.Dympnas with Tiernan McDermott, Jamie Law, John MacRory and Oisin McConnell all played well too.


Trillick lost at home to Gael Naomh Padraig in a high scoring thriller. Ryan Kelly, Ryan Gray, J Garrity, Dara McQuaid and Tiernan Allen played well for the St.Macartans. GNP trailed 1-7 to 0-2 at the break but they turned things around in style in the second half. Ryan McCaughey top scored with 2-5 to his name, Eoin Keenan got 1-1, Tiernan McConnell [2], Conor Shields [1] and two massive 45m free kicks from Rory McElroy helped turn the game on its head.


Drumquin won 6-8 to 3-10 away to Aghaloo. Caolan Kelly scored 1-6 for the hosts while their two best performers on the night Brendan Kelly and Brendan Quinn got a goal each.
