Magherafelt 2-11 Castledawson 1-8
Magherafelt picked up two valuable points at home to Castledawson on Sunday. The match was keenly contested with the Rossa pulling ahead on a 1-03 to 0-02 lead after ten minutes courtesy of 1-02 from play from Spiers. His accuracy continued as he hit a further two points in the half supported by two Kearns points and a McElhone long rang effort. Half time 1-08 to 0-03 for Magherafelt. A more determined Dawson entered the fray in the second half and three pointed frees in a row brought them back into the game. However points from McGuckin and Spiers and an opportunist goal from Higgins opened an unassailable lead for the Rossa. Castledawson did score another 1-01 but it was too little too late.
