Big wins for Barrys and Tones
Derrylaughan 1-10 Ardboe 0-9
A goal from teenager Stephen McGrath on the stroke of half time proved to be the decisive score as Derrylaughan made home advantage count against neighbours Ardboe to stay in the hunt for a top four finish.
The Kevin Barrys led 0-4 to 0-1 at the end of the opening quarter thanks to points from Ciaran Quinn, Liam Gervin and John Taggart.
The Rossas responded through Brian McGuigan and Anthony Devlin but McGrath then struck for that 29th minute major to put the hosts four in front at the break.
A trio of Michael Hagan points reduced the deficit on the restart but Ardboe were never able to get on level terms with Gervin and Shea Coney helping to keep the home side in front.
McGuigan was in fine form for the visitors as he landed a brace with his weaker left foot but it was Derrylaughan who had the final say through Gervin and Coney to gain a crucial victory.
Derrylaughan scorers – Liam Gervin 0-5, Stephen McGrath 1-0, Shea Coney 0-2, Ciaran Quinn 0-1, John Taggart 0-1, Ciaran Gervin 0-1

Greencastle 2-12 Errigal Ciaran 1-10
Errigal Ciaran travelled to Greencastle on Saturday evening as warm favourites to collect the two league points but Sean Teague’s charges didn’t read the script as they produced a brilliant display to deservedly pick up their first win of the campaign.
A goal three minutes after the restart from man of the match Cahair McCullagh proved to be the crucial score as it doubled their half time lead to six and they never looked back.
The hosts were out of the traps quickly and established a 0-5 to 0-1 lead with McCullagh  and Mark Carson on target but Errigal Ciaran fought back through Stefan Tierney and Ciaran McGinley.
Three minutes before the break John McCullagh got a Greencastle goal but in the next attack Tierney replied in kind at the other end of the field to leave it 1-7 to 1-4 at the break.
Cathair McCullagh then pounced for that early second half goal and despite four Darren Canavan points the visitors couldn’t claw it back.
Greencastle scorers – Cathair McCullagh 1-5, John McCullagh 1-2, Martin Conway 0-3, Mark Carson 0-2
Errigal Ciaran scorers – Darren Canavan 0-5, Stefan Tierney 1-1, Ronan McRory 0-1, Ciaran McGinley 0-1, Bryan Horisk 0-1, Peter Harte 0-1
Killyclogher 0-9 Carrickmore 0-14
Carrickmore hit five unanswered points in the final ten minutes to come out on top in a keenly contested clash with neighbours Killyclogher as they bounced back from their first defeat of the campaign against Coalisland.
The home side and Tyrone were dealt a blow when defender Dermot Carlin had to go off injured inside five minutes to leave him a serious doubt for the forthcoming Ulster semi final clash with holders Donegal.
It was honours even at the break 0-5 each with Conal McCann, Simon O’Neill, Mark Donnelly and Martin Penrose contributing points for their respective sides. Caolan Daly, Conor Gormley and Penrose then edged the visitors in front but back came Killyclogher through Leo Meenan and James Carlin to square the contest again.
It was anybody’s game at that stage but the St.Colmcilles then stepped on the gas with scores from Penrose, Barry Daly, Finbar Magill and Jonathan Munroe to run out worthy winners.
Killyclogher scorers – Simon O’Neill 0-3, Leo Meenan 0-3, Conal McCann 0-2, James Carlin 0-1
Carrickmore scorers – Martin Penrose 0-4, Mark Donnelly 0-3, Caolan Daly 0-2, Conor Gormley 0-2, Finbar Magill 0-1, Barry Daly 0-1, Jonathan Munroe 0-1
Donaghmore 1-8 Edendork 0-12
After ending their five game losing streak last time out it’s now two wins on the trot for Edendork after Karl McGuckin proved to be their match winner with a late point at Father Devlin Park.
It was a close contest throughout with Tomas Haughey, Deasun Quinn Darren McCurry and Brian McGuckin getting first half points before Conor McGinn found the net four minutes before the break to give the St.Patricks a slender 1-4 to 0-6 lead.
McCurry swapped points with Shane Mulgrew and Quinn on the restart before the McGuckin brothers Brian, John and Karl all registered for the St.Malachys as they got their noses in front.
County minor Peter McKenna then looked as though he had got the hosts a draw but Karl McGuckin fired over what proved to be the winner. In the closing moments Donaghmore had their chances to get at least a share off the spoils but Mulgrew, Haughey and Dan Grimes all recorded wides.
Donaghmore scorers – Shane Mulgrew 0-4, Conor McGinn 1-0, Deasun Quinn 0-2, Tomas Haughey 0-1, Peter McKenna 0-1
Edendork scorers – Darren McCurry 0-5, Brian McGuckin 0-2, Karl McGuckin 0-2, Harry Og Conlon 0-1, Brian Og O’Rourke 0-1, John McGuckin 0-1
Kildress 0-16 Omagh 1-11
At the eighth time of asking Kildress finally broke their points duck when they ended the five game unbeaten run of high flying Omagh at Gortacladdy on Saturday evening.
The Wolfe Tones were full value for their win with the crucial period in the game coming midway through the second half when they landed six points without reply.
The home side established an early lead through efforts from Martin Heagney, Frank McGurk and Philip Lennon but Omagh hit back to get on level terms with Jason McAnulla to the fore in the scoring stakes with Barry Tierney and Conan Grugan also on target.
A minute into injury time county star Joe McMahon got on the end of a high ball to punch to the net to leave the visitors 1-7 to 0-8 in front.
A McAnulla brace doubled their half time lead but then came that purple patch for the Tones that included scores from McGurk, Heagney and Gabhan Treacy.
Omagh fought back to level through McAnulla but two minutes from time they were reduced to fourteen men when substitute Gary Taggart was sent off by referee Fergal Ward and Kildress took advantage with two late McGurk points.
Kildress scorers – Frank McGurk 0-7, Des Treacy 0-2, Matthew Heagney 0-2, Damian Kelly 0-2, Eoin Brannigan 0-1, Gabhan Treacy 0-1, Philip Lennon 0-1
Omagh scorers – Jason McAnulla 0-7, Joe McMahon 1-1, Barry Tierney 0-1, Conan Grugan 0-1, Aaron Grugan 0-1
Clonoe 1-10 Eglish 0-10
Clonoe remain second in the table and still unbeaten this year but they were taken to the pin of their collars by a battling Eglish side at O’Rahilly Park on Saturday afternoon.
Peter McCann and Ryan McKenna helped put the visitors into an early lead but in the sixth minute Patrick Doris converted a Clonoe penalty after Danny McNulty had been fouled.
Undaunted by that setback, Eglish proceeded to hit the next five scores through McCann, Brendan Donnelly and Matthew Jordan and while the O’Rahillys had the final say of the half from Stephen McNulty it was the visitors who led by the minimum margin at the short whistle.
Doris and Dominic Campbell had the opening two scores of the second half but back came Eglish through McCann and McKenna and going into the final dozen minutes the visitors led by two.
They failed to score again, alas. as Clonoe found their form when they really needed with Emmett Teague hitting a brace and Campbell on Doris on target as well for the relived hosts.
Clonoe scorers – Patrick Doris 1-3, Emmett Teague 0-2, Dominic Campbell 0-2, Stephen McNulty 0-2, Danny McNulty 0-1
Eglish scorers – Peter McCann 0-4, Ryan McKenna 0-2, Brendan Donnelly 0-2, Matthew Jordan 0-2
Dromore 2-15 Trillick 1-3
Seldom has a local derby between these two lacked intensity as Dromore eased to victory without getting out of second gear to send their neighbours Trillick to joint bottom place in the division one league table.
The St.Dympnas laid down a marker from the start and within a dozen minutes they were already well on their way to victory with Hugh McNulty scoring a brilliant goal and Eoin McCusker, Cathal McCarron and Emmett O’Neill tagging on points.
Mattie Donnelly and Philip McGrade had Trillick points but it was all over bar the shouting at the interval after McCusker scored Dromore’s second goal and Sean O’Neill and Ronan McNabb added points for a 2-8 to 0-2 advantage.
Sean and Ronan McNabb added to their lead on the resumption and, while Shane Gormley got a goal eight minutes from time it was only a consolation score, the rampant hosts closing out the game with efforts from Sean McNabb, Ryan McMenamin and McCusker.
Dromore scorers – Eoin McCusker 1-5, Ronan McNabb 0-3, Hugh McNulty 1-0, Sean McNabb 0-2, Sean O’Neill 0-2, Emmett O’Neill 0-1, Cathal McCarron 0-1, Ryan McMenamin 0-1
