St Eunan's, Letterkenny 0-3 Omagh CBS 4-13

OMAGH struck for goals in the opening minute of each half in this one-sided encounter in Glenswilly, which was over as a contest by the interval after they had established a 3-8 to 0-2 lead.

Wing half-forward Daithi McCallan had the ball in the Letterkenny net after only 30 seconds and while the Donegal lads responded with points from Daithi Gildea and Eoghan Doherty, they managed only one more score in the remaining 53 minutes.

The Tyrone side completely dominated the rest of the first half. Conor Owens (3) and Donnelly landed points before Eoin McElholm grabbed a 13th-minute major.

Owens, Ruairi McCullagh and McElholm all tagged on points, with the former also finding the net late on to leave them out of sight of their opponents.

In the first attack of the second half Owens added a fine individual goal and that was added to by points from Niall McCarney, Haigney and Liam Og Mossey. McElholm had Omagh's last score of the game, Brendan O'Hagan replying from a free.

St Michael's, Enniskillen 2-11 St Patrick's, Cavan 0-6

ST MICHAEL'S bounced back from an opening defeat by Omagh CBS to win this game in Derrylin yesterday.

The key score in the first half was a goal from Conor O'Hanlon after 16 minutes and Enniskillen led by 1-4 to 0-5 at the break, with four of the Cavan scores coming from Cian Keaney.

Cavan then lost their captain Ollie McCrystal to injury and another player to a black card as St Michael's pushed on with some excellent scores from player-of-the-match Lanty Feeley and Michael Spiers.

Midway through the half James Corey put the game beyond their opponents with Enniskillen's second goal.
