Round-up (March 27-April 1)

April 1st, 2012

It was a positive weekend for Monaghan’s county teams, with all three teams in action winning their games. The minor footballers booked their place in the Ulster MFL semi-finals thanks to Saturday’s win over Armagh and the senior hurlers maintained their unbeaten run in the Allianz NHL Division 3A with a comfortable victory at home to Sligo on Sunday, while the ladies footballers continued their good form with a ten-point defeat of Kildare, which confirms their place as runners-up in the Bord Gáis NFL Division One, meaning they will host Dublin in the semi-finals.


Oram pulled off arguably the result of the opening round in the Eurotech Junior Football League on Sunday when they won by two points away to last year’s league and championship runners-up Clones, while Killanny also made a good start by edging out Aghabog. Drumhowan’s return to junior football wasn’t one to remember, as they lost by three points at home to Emyvale, but the other relegated side, Éire Óg, fared better by battling past Blackhill.


Scotstown are top of the Platinum Tanks Reserve Football League Division One after they took three points from two games over the weekend. The defending champions won in Latton on Friday evening and they drew with Castleblayney, who had hammered Truagh on Friday, two days later. Latton bounced back to edge out Clontibret on Sunday, while Magheracloone defeated Truagh and Monaghan Harps won in Tyholland.

Cremartin lead the way in the RFL Division Two thanks to their convincing win over Corduff on Sunday, while Doohamlet are just a point behind in the wake of their victory against Ballybay.

Silver Hill Foods

Castleblayney are up and running in the Silver Hill Foods Development Hurling League after a comprehensive defeat of Fermanagh club Knocks, while Carrickmacross and Clontibret had narrow wins at the expense of Inniskeen and Truagh respectively.


Castleblayney, Scotstown and Carrickmacross made winning starts to the GRM Minor Football League Division One on Tuesday evening, when they got the better of Clontibret, Monaghan Harps and Killanny respectively.
