Great win for Barrys
Derrylaughan 1-18 Carrickmore 2-7
Carrickmore had one eye on their championship semi final next weekend as they visited the Loughshore minus the services of a few regulars but Derrylaughan won’t be too worried about that as they claimed victory to stay in the running for a league semi-final spot.
The Kevin Barrys got off to a great start with their first score being a Sean Robinson goal and that helped them lead 1-8 to 0-6 at the break, Shea Coney and Ciaran Quinn hitting five points between them with Caolan Daly and Padraig Slane on the mark for the visitors.
The first score of the second half was a Mickey Gallagher goal for Carrickmore but Derrylaughan responded with points from Fergal McAliskey and Stephen McGrath as well as the Gervin brothers Liam and Ciaran. Paul McAleer got a second Carrickmore goal.
But Derrylaughan closed the game out with points from Quinn, McAliskey and the Gervins.

Donaghmore 1-12 Clonoe 0-19
Donaghmore’s hopes of a place in the league semi finals received a setback at Father Devlin Park yesterday afternoon when Clonoe recovered from losing an early goal to win by four points.
Shane Mulgrew had given the St.Patricks that perfect start with a third minute major against the wind. Conor McAliskey and Daryl McGee then exchanged points with Mulgrew and Niall McKenna before the O’Rahillys took over with eleven unanswered scores.
McGee, McAliskey, Paul Coney and Packie Hughes all found the range as they turned around leading 0-14 to 1-3. Mulgrew and Dan Toner reduced the deficit on the restart before McAliskey scored two Clonoe frees.
Deasun Quinn then knocked over two Donaghmore 45s, while Peter McKenna scored twice from play but Clonoe stayed ahead thanks to efforts from Coney and McGee.
Donaghmore scorers – Shane Mulgrew 1-5, Deasun Quinn 0-2, Peter McKenna 0-2, Dan Toner 0-2, Niall McKenna 0-1
Clonoe scorers – Conor McAliskey 0-6, Paul Coney 0-6, Daryl McGee 0-4, Packie Hughes 0-2, Sean Hughes 0-1
Moortown 0-12 Greencastle 0-11
An eleven game losing streak in the league came to an end for Moortown at the Loughshore yesterday when they picked up their first win since the opening day of the season to deny Greencastle the victory that they required to ensure their safety.
The home side had the wind at their backs in the first half but they still only led 0-9 to 0-6 with Ryan Kelly, Mark Crozier, Daniel Quinn and Peter Devlin among their points, John McCullagh and Shane Coyle with a couple each for the visitors.
Mark Carson and Kelly traded points on the restart but when McCullagh and Carson scored again the visitors looked as though they would kick on from there.
Moortown dug deep though with scores from Karl Hagan and Kelly and while Cathair McCullagh got a couple of late Greencastle points their efforts just came up short in the end.
Moortown scorers – Ryan Kelly 0-5, Daniel Quinn 0-3, Padraig Hagan 0-1, Mark Crozier 0-1, Peter Devlin 0-1, Karl Hagan 0-1
Greencastle scorers – John McCullagh 0-3, Cathair McCullagh 0-3, Mark Carson 0-3, Shane Coyle 0-2
Errigal Ciaran 1-6 Kildress 0-10
This game had a late throw in at Dunmoyle and no doubt the visitors were aware that bottom of the table Moortown had won to leave them no margin for error here and the Wolfe Tones duly delivered against opponents who rested a few players ahead of next weekend’s championship semi final meeting with Carrickmore.
Kildress had the first three points of the game via Des Treacy, Shane Kelly and Conor McAleer and while Patrick McDermott replied for Errigal it was the visitors who led 0-5 to 0-2 at halftime thanks to scores from Treacy and Philip Lennon.
Within five minutes of the restart Lennon, Treacy and Frank McGurk had all tagged on points to leave them in a strong position.
Errigal Ciaran’s first score of the second half proved to be a Stephen McRory goal to give them hope of taking something from the game.
Ryan Lynch added two points but crucially either side of those two scores McGurk and Lennon registered for Kildress as they picked up a vital win.
Errigal Ciaran scorers – Stephen McRory 1-1, Ryan Lynch 0-2, Rory McCann 0-2, Patrick McDermott 0-1
Kildress scorers – Des Treacy 0-3, Philip Lennon 0-3, Frank McGurk 0-2, Shane Kelly 0-1, Conor McAleer 0-1
Omagh 1-11 Edendork 0-13
Omagh bounced back from the disappointment of losing in the championship a week earlier when, despite being understrengh, they held off a determined challenge from an Edendork side who were badly in need of the points near the foot of the table.
Darren McCurry, Niall Morgan and Brian McGuckin had early Edendork points but the St.Endas kept in touch thanks to scores from Conor O’Donnell and Barry Tierney.
In the closing moments of the first half Caolan McCrossan first timed the ball to the net and after O’Donnell and David Toner had traded points it was Omagh who led 1-6 to 0-6 at the break.
In the third quarter a Toner brace either side of one from Morgan left the sides level and everything to play for. Conan Grugan and O’Donnell then put Omagh two in front before two McGuckin frees left it all square once again.
It looked like ending in stalemate until substitute Cathal McCarron scored the winner for the hosts.
Omagh scorers – Conor O’Donnell 0-5, Caolan McCrossan 1-0, Shane O’Neill 0-2, Barry Tierney 0-1, Diarmuid Kerr 0-1, Conan Grugan 0-1, Cathal McCarron 0-1
Edendork scorers – Brian McGuckin 0-4, David Toner 0-4, Darren McCurry 0-2, Niall Morgan 0-2, John McGuckin 0-1
