Mountjoy United...3
Killen Rangers...2

The visitors took the lead through Trevor Irwin's header from a Tristan Roberts cross, but John Edgar got Mountjoy back on terms when he fired in a loose ball following a Stephen Montgomery set piece.

Lee Frazer's penalty just after halftime made it 2-1 to the 'Joy, but back came Killen though Irwin again, this time heading in a Steven Doherty delivery.

But it would be Frazer who would strike again for his team to seal the points after latching onto Edgar's long ball to slot home.

Strathroy Harps...2
Magheraveely ...0



Tommy Murphy's double did the trick for Strathroy Harps against Magheraveely at Omagh Leisure Complex.

The visitors proved hard to break down in a stalemate opening 45 minutes. On an attacking front, the Fermanagh men went close on more than a few occasions, hitting the woodwork with efforts from Shane Reavey and Ashley McFarland, while Reavey also had an acrobatic effort cleared off the line. Harps'A i dy McCaffrey, a stand-out performer in last week's big win over Mountjoy, also struck the post.

In the second half Murphy struck for his brace, both similar finishes to the bottom left corner, with the champions routinely holding the lead to the end of the game Dunbreen Rovers 2 Strule United 4 Strule made it three wins from three and moved to the top of Division Two with a 4-2 derby win over Dunbreen Rovers at Omagh Youth Sport.

They didn't have it all their own way however, having to fight back from 2-0 down for the victory.

Niall McCaffrey slotted home to hand Rovers a 1-0 lead at the break, after Mickey McMenamin had missed a penalty, and they doubled that lead through Nathan O'Donnell to put the hosts firmly in command.

Strule got back in the game with Ciaran Browne and Luke McGinn goals, before a shell-shocked Dunbreen conceded again as Kevin McAleer's speculative effort went in off the post. The insurance goal came from Kyle McCrory, who swept home after being teed up by McAleer.
