Enniskillen Rangers ...1 Tummery Athletic ...2

A RUAIRI Sludden-inspired Tummery Athletic put an end to Enniskillen Rangers unbeaten run with a 2-1 victory at the Ball Range on Saturday afternoon.

After an indifferent start to the season, the weekend's result was Tummery's fourth win on the trot, and Benny McElholm's men are beginning to look like serious title contenders.

It was the hosts who took the lead thanks to a brilliant 25-yard strike from Jason Keenan that gave Chris Catterson no chance in the Athletic goal. Tummery got back on terms before the interval though when Sudden made no mistake second time round after his initial shot was blocked down.

The Dromore attacker continued to be a thorn in Rangers' side and he got his second and the game's winner after latching onto Declan Nulty's pass to slot home.

 

Strathroy Harps ...6 Lisbellaw United ...1

Darren Teague marked a return to football after a seven week lay-ff with two goals as Strathroy Harps impressively dismantled Lisbellaw United 6-1 at Omagh Leisure Complex.

The visitors began well despite fielding a much depleted team, but Strathroy took the initiative when Damon Teague and Tony Quinn combined for Mark Sloan to score.

Seconds later and Strathroy were two up as Tony Quinn ran onto a long clearance from keeper Tim Harney to slot home.

On 25 minutes Patrick Nugent grabbed goal number three after Tommy Murphy split the defence, before Teague was introduced from the bench to supply brother Damon for a headed goal just before the break.

With the game out of sight, Isabella restarted the half well and O'Keefe got their only goal just before the hour mark with a well taken strike.

After that good spell though Harps resumed control, and Darren League marked his comeback with two goals as Strathroy ran out comfortable winner Killen Rangers 0 NFC Kesh 2 High flyers NFC Kesh were back to winning ways after last week's defeat to Harps with a 2-0 win over Killen Rangers at the Village.

The first half was uneventful for the most part with both teams cancelling one another out. Killen's Graham Young had a couple of efforts from long range off target while at the other end Ollie Russell came close to converting at the back post after good work from Mark Jones.

The breakthrough came on the hour when Nathan Cashel collected a pass from Mark McCauley and kept his cool to kind over David Ward to make it 1-0. Ten minutes later it was 2-0 with McCauley himself on the mark this time, receiving the ball to the left of the box from Alex Holder before making space for himself onto his right foot and firing into the bottom corner.

 

Irvinestown Wanderers ...4 Beragh Swifts ...2

Stephen Sheridan netted a hat-trick as Irvinestown Wanderers earned a 4-2 home win over Beragh Swifts.

The game was certainly eventful with a red card against Swifts' Ryan Weir and two penalties to Wanderers in the closing stages sealing the win for the hosts.

Irvinestown took the lead five minutes before the half when Chris O'Brien was played in by Ronan Ormsby to slot past Swifts keeper Johnny Kuruc.

In the second period, Michael Mahon was denied by the woodwork before Sheridan got his first with a fine goal from distance.

Michael Brown responded for Beragh Swifts with a brilliant strike of his own from 20 yards that crashed into the roof of the Wanderers net.

Sheridan's penalty after Weir's dismissal restored Wanderers two goal lead before Gary Maguire won goal handed Keith Hamilton's side a glimmer of hope with a few minutes remaining, but the ten men couldn't find another goal and instead, Sheridan completed his hat-trick with a second spot-kick after Joey Millar was felled by Jason Aiken.

Strule United ...3 Omagh Hospitals ...2

Strule came out on top in an all-Omagh derby, edging out Hospitals 3-2 at Donnelly's Holm to stay top of the heap in Division Two .

A first half penalty from Luke McGinn gave St rule the lead until Barry Howe came off the bench to tie the game for Hospitals in the 77th minute. It wasn't long though before Strule moved back in front through Aidy Kelly before Kyle McCrory's late goal sealed the points for Niall McAleer's side.

 

Fintona Swifts ...4 Maguiresbridge ...1

A hat-trick from Cathal Moore powered Fintona Swifts to a 4-1 win over Maguiresbridge at Castle Park.

Moore got the ball rolling when he finished after Niall McElroy had squared the ball across the box, and the second came when a long ball over the top by Cain Hamilton, onto McElroy again to square it across for Moore to slot home.
