Loughmacrory move to joint third in Division 2 ahead of Championship test

Loughmacrory St. Teresa’s maintained their solid 2016 league form in the ACFL Division 2 campaign on sunday at home to Aghaloo, with a 1-13 to 1-6 victory ensuring a joint third placing in the table at the end of the days play.

Donaghmore had to make a big comeback against Eskra, who Loughmacrory meet next Sunday in the opening round of the championship, to remain at the top of the table on 21 points. Dungannon’s impressive win over Derrylaughan keeps the Clarkes in second spot while Pomeroy were also convincing winners against Moortown. Pomeroy (away) and Dungannon (home) are the last two remaining games for Loughmacrory in the league and may well decide the destination of the 2016 ACFL Division 2 honours. That said Donaghmore remain in pole position as they are two points clear at the top of the table with their two remaining games against Brackaville and Stewartstown.

Loughmacrory were in a commanding position for much of this league encounter and were 0-9 to 0-3 in front early in the second half when Enda McGarrity found the net for Aghaloo. By that stage Cathal Donaghy (0-3), Niall Donaghy (0-2), Niall Grimes (0-2), Nathan Kelly (0-1) and John Gallagher (0-1) had found the target for Loughmacrory. That made it 0-9 to 1-3 entering the final quarter but Loughmacrory pulled away then with Niall Grimes, Cathal Donaghy and Niall Donaghy all knocking over excellent points and John Gallagher rifling home a superb goal.

Next up of course is that eagerly awaited opening round of the Intermediate Football Championship against Eskra Emmett’s – that tie scheduled for next Sunday 28th August in Killyclogher at 5pm. It is part of a double bill and will be followed by Dromore v Strabane in the SFC, the St. Dympna’s managed by Ciaran Meenagh.
