St Mary’s Kiltoghert continue to lead the way in the Gallogly Catering ACL Division 1 after they recorded their third win in as many matches when they registered a slender one point win over Kiltubrid on Sunday last.
Glencar/Manorhamilton bounced back from the defeat they suffered at the hands of Annaduff a week earlier as they proved too strong for near neighbours Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher, running out winners by 17 points.
Annaduff had won their opening two games but suffered their first defeat of the year on Sunday last when they were beaten by Ballinamore by a last gasp Adrian Smith goal. That win keeps Ballianmore very much in contention at the upper end of the table.
Along with St Mary’s, the only other 100% record in the league belongs to Mohill who hosted Aughawillan in the first game in the newly redevloped Phily McGuinness Memorial Grounds. The unveiling of the new playing surface had originally been scheduled to take place a week earlier but was postponed due to the sad passing of Sandra Earley. It was fitting that the first point scored on the new pitch was scored by Sandra’s finace, Barry Lupton.
Having lost their opening two games, Carrigallen registered their first win of the league when they defeated Drumreilly by four points. Dromahair had also lost their opening two games but they picked up their first point of the league campaign when they earned a very creditable draw away to the highly fancied Melvin Gaels.
In Division 2 Drumkeerin continue to lead the way as they maintained their 100% record with a slender, one point victory over close rivals Ballinaglera.
For Leitrim Gaels the step up to Division 2 is proving to be a tough one so far and they remain rooted to the bottom of the table after their third defeat in as many games. Last weekend they were beaten by Fenagh.
In what was their first game of the year, Annaduff’s second team got the better of Eslin who are not yet firing on all cylinders. Annaduff emerged winners by four points to condemn Eslin to their second defeat in as many games.
