CLONOE and Killyclogher are the new joint leaders of All County League Division One after Errigal Ciaran were defeated by Ardboe at Coney Park yesterday.
Kyle Coney grabbed both goals as the Rossas secured a 2-18 to 2-07 to knock Pascal’s Canavan’s men off their perch.
In reply Darren Canavan and Davy Harte both netted but it wasn’t enough as Ardboe moved level on points with their opponents in joint second.
Errigal’s defeat opened the door for Killyclogher and Clonoe to both forge ahead.
Clonoe defeated Dromore 2-12 to 1-12 at Gardrum Park with Fintan McClure and the dynamic PJ Lavery grabbing the all important goals while Killyclogher had to pull out all the stops to see off Pomeroy.
James Carlin led the St Mary’s challenge with a goal and a number of points while Sean Fox crucially saved a penalty to condemn the Plunketts to a 1-10 to 0-10 defeat.
Neighbours Omagh meanwhile scored three goals in five second half minutes to defeat Trillick 3-8 to 0-16 in a highly entertaining encounter at Donnelly Park on Saturday evening.
Hugh Gallagher, Cormac O’Neill and Cathal McCarron all found the target as Paddy Crozier’s men turned the game on its head for Omagh’s third win of the season.
Carrickmore, too, found the net three times in a 3-16 to 0-12 win at Edendork.
Goals by Martin Penrose and Caolan Daly laid the foundation for Carmen who closed the game out with the help of a third strike from Mark Donnelly.
At the other end of the table Greencastle picked up their first win with Mark Carson and Christopher Gillen in fine scoring form in a 2-12 to 0-11 victory over Donaghmore.
North Tyrone strugglers Urney and Strabane had mixed fortunes. The St Columba’s were defeated 2-13 to 0-9 in their own back yard by Galbally – Mark Donnelly and Sean Murphy grabbing goals for the visitors – while Sigersons shared the spoils in a 1-13 to 0-16 draw at Coalisland.
