All to play for in Monaghan

DONAGHMOYNE will be hoping to back up their recent eye-catching victory over league leaders Scotstown when they travel to Corduff on Friday evening.

An early goal from Liam McDonald helped Donaghmoyne, who are currently third in the table, establish themselves in the game and they led by the minimum of margins at the half-time break. They added a further major after the turnaround from Declan Courtney to see out a 2-9 to 1-11 win.

With Monaghan now out of the race for Sam Maguire, Scotstown could see their county contingent such as Rory Beggan, Jack McCarron and Conor McCarthy return as they hope to bounce back from their first defeat of the year.

They are out on Sunday afternoon and will host Clontibret, who will hope to have Conor McManus back from county action. Clontibret also head into the game off the back of a defeat having lost to Cremartin by one point in their most recent outing.

A score in the last minute, along with two second-half goals, helped Cremartin earn the crucial two points on offer having trailed by three points at the halfway stage. They host Latton on Friday, who are currently second in the league table.

Aughnamullen picked up their first victory of the campaign two weeks ago as they saw off John McEntee’s Inniskeen by three points, thanks to a goal from Cillian Traynor midway through the second period.

Lee Conlon’s side, who are currently bottom of the table, will hope to carry that momentum through to this weekend when they travel to Ballybay, who saw off Latton by one point in their last game.

Inniskeen remain well in the hunt for a league title and are back on home turf on Friday evening as they take on last year’s Intermediate champions Killanny, who are sitting midtable at the moment.

It’s all to play for at the top of the Intermediate league as Magheracloone, Carrickmacross and Truagh are all locked on 12 points each after seven games. All three sides have won six games and lost once.

Truagh, with Barry Dillon in his first season in charge, suffered their first defeat of the season against Magheracloone two weeks ago, so they’ll be hungry to get a win this Friday when they host Clones.

Aghabog are at the top of the Junior Division, leading Toome by just one point. They take on Eire Og this weekend while Toome travel to Oram.
