As You Were in Derry ACFL

Glen, Claudy and Slaughtmanus were top of their respective leagues and all three remained in situ as the sun set as the H & A Mechanical Derry ACFL continues.

Watty Graham’s and Slaughtneil Emmet’s both recorded victories to remain the top two in Division 1A, the Glen side defeating Coleraine 2-10 to 0-09 in Portstewart while the holders were comfortable in a 3-12 to 0-09 win over St Canice’s Dungiven.

Third-placed Swatragh entertained The Loup at Davitt Park, with the game ending 0-10 apiece in a frustrating result for both sides, while St Patrick’s Loughshore rivals Ballinderry defeated Lavey 0-13 to 1-05.

Banagher came close to their first league points as they suffered a defeat by the minimum at home to Ballinascreen, with St Colm’s prevailing on a scoreline of 0-11 to 0-10 to prevent St Mary’s taking advantage of their neighbours Dungiven’s defeat to Slaughtneil.

With Division 1B leaders Claudy not in action, both Foreglen and Newbridge had a chance to take advantage, but both were left frustrated. Sean O’Leary’s were held to a 1-12 apiece draw at home to Kilrea, while Foreglen and Drumsurn shared the points with 3-09 apiece.

With stalemate paralyzing the top three, Greenlough recorded a 2-14 to 1-10 victory over Castledawson to move within a point of 2nd place, while down at the bottom Glenullin hit four goals in Limavady to see off Na Cúnna 4-12 to 0-12 and leapfrog their opponents.

In Division 2, Craigbane were awarded the points with Sean Dolan’s concession, while leaders Slaughtmanus squeezed past Ballerin 1-07 to 1-06 to retain their place at the top.

Doire Trasna kept the heat on the leaders with a 2-18 to 3-11 win away in Moneymore to leave them nestled a point behind with a game in hand, while Desertmartin are 4th following a 1-08 to 1-07 win in Magilligan and Glack move 5th after a 0-10 to 0-04 win over Drum.
