PHOENIX Swifts moved to within two points of Premier Division leaders, Westbank United, following their victory over Rosemount, the leader’s clash with Drumahoe called off due to an unplayable pitch at Prehen.

Indeed, just nine of the 12 scheduled matches kicked-off with fixtures at Prehen and the Vale Centre cancelled due to the inclement weather.

Clifton Villa also remain in touch with the leaders thanks to their victory over Clooney while Brandywell Celtic left it late in their game with Creggan Swifts before winning with the final kick off the game and Du Pont returned to form with a very good win over Foyle Harps.

In the Championship Tamnaherin hammered Sion Swifts while Newton Heath had a very good win over a very young Gransha Institute side.

In the First Division Art Deco were surprisingly held to a draw by Collegians who were considered rather unlucky not to win the game and Tristar saw their good run continue as they beat Oakleaf Celtic.

The last of the weekend action saw Culmore lose narrowly to Hatmore Harps.
