Round-up (July 19-22)

July 22nd, 2012

The county minor footballers lost narrowly to Tyrone in the Ulster MFC Final on Sunday (see match report). It has also been a busy few days at club level.


Ballybay remain four points clear at the top of the Drumlin Group of Credit Unions Senior Football League after Saturday’s matches. The league leaders had to come from four points down at half-time to salvage a draw at home to Currin, while their nearest challengers, Clontibret and Carrickmacross, also finished all-square. Clontibret led by ten points going into the final quarter, but an amazing comeback saw Carrick hit three goals to gain a point. They are now joined in a three-way tie for second place by Magheracloone, who ground out a one-point win at home to Magheracloone, while Castleblayney rattled the Truagh net three times on their way to a four-point win. A late goal by Elliott Maguire gave Scotstown a badly-needed win away to Monaghan Harps, who had battled back from five points down to draw level with time almost up.

Monaghan Electrical

Doohamlet are still six points ahead of their nearest challengers in the Monaghan Electrical Intermediate Football League after they had a comfortable win over Cremartin on Saturday. The table-toppers trailed at half-time, but conceded just a point in the second half to turn the game on its head. Second place is now shared by Tyholland and Donaghmoyne, who had straightforward victories over the bottom two clubs, Seán McDermotts and Toome, respectively. Rockcorry are up to fourth after continuing their good form by beating Aughnamullen, while Inniskeen put some daylight between themselves and the relegation zone by defeating Corduff.


Emyvale remain a point ahead of Drumhowan at the top of the Eurotech Junior Football League after Friday’s matches. Emyvale had six points to spare at home to Aghabog, while Drumhowan ran out three-point winners against Oram. Clones are down to third after they were held to a draw by Killanny and Éire Óg moved up three places from bottom thanks to a seven-point win over Killeevan.

Silver Hill Foods

Castleblayney and Inniskeen will contest the Silver Hill Foods Senior Hurling Championship Final after they won Thursday’s semi-finals. Hugh Byrne top-scored with 2-4 as defending champions Blayney continued their impressive form with a convincing win over Truagh. Inniskeen faced a sterner test against Clontibret, but two first-half goals proved enough for them to advance on a scoreline of 2-13 to 0-13.


Oram’s bid for a semi-final place in the Platinum Tanks Reserve Football League Division Three ended with Sunday’s defeat against Scotstown. Blackhill and Emyvale had wins over Monaghan Harps and Truagh on Friday and Saturday respectively in the RFL Division Four.
