Foreglen 1-14

Ogra Colmcille 0-7

This game was much closer than the scoreline suggests and it took the accuracy of Cairan McFeely from frees and a late Kevin O’Connor goal to put a gloss on the Foreglen win. Ogra did not have the same bite in attack but they were still well placed at half time, being on level terms 0-5 each but had to face the second half breeze.

Foreglen were deadly accurate in the second half as they recorded their fourth win from five games in the league. They played some slick football and gradually pulled away from the wasteful visitors.

Foreglen scorers Cairan McFeely 0-6, 0-4frees, Kevin O’Connor 1-0, Niall McFeely 0-3, 0-2f, Eunan McFeely 0-2, Darren O’Kane, Oisin Duffy and Ryan McFeely 0-1 each

Limavady 2-7

Dolans 0-7

Limavady lifted themselves off the foot of the table with a two goal win over fellow strugglers Dolans and this win will give them hope of further victories when they get back to full strength.

Their scorers were Conor Forrest 1-2, Sean Brolly 0-4, Aaron McGregor 1-0 and Eoin Kelly 0-1.

Drumsurn 2-6

Swatragh 0-15

Not a week to remember for Ruairi Convery, a straight red card for the county’s hurlers against Wicklow on Saturday and another, on a second yellow card, against Drumsurn on Sunday.

This was a good game of football and a winning return for Swatragh who had been out of sorts for the past three games where they picked up just a point. For Drumsurn it was a first defeat of the season and had it not been for three super saves from visiting keeper Michael O’Kane, they might have kept that record.

Swatragh led at the break by 0-10 to 1-4 with Martin Mullan getting the first of his two Drumsurn goals. SThe visitor’s ability to pick off long range scores kept them in front and put their promotion hopes back on track.

Swatragh scorers Eugene O’Kane 0-6, 0-4frees, Sean McNicholl 0-4, Robert McWilliams 0-3, Seamus Friel and Seamus McFerran 0-1 each.

Martin Mullan 2-0 and Ciaran Mullan 0-4 were the main Drumsurn scorers.

Steelstown 0-6

Slaughtmanus 0-11

Steelstown suffered their first defeat of the season when they were well beaten by a competent Slaughtmanus team who led by 0-5 to 0-1 at the interval, playing with the wind. They added the next two scores of the second half leaving a strangely lethargic Steelstown with too much to do.

Gavin McShane was in deadly form for the winners, hitting 0-8, of which 0-6 came from frees. Adrain O’Kane, Ciaran Barr and Fergal Hargan got the other points.

Steelstown scored just twice form play through Michael Moore and Daniel Jackson while Stephen Cleary got the other four points from frees.
