Downings win against Naomh Bríd ended a gallant Ballintra side’s hopes of promotion on Saturday evening. Division 3 is the only one where the league winners are still not decided but Downing hard fought win has moved them closer to the title.
Burt lost for the second game in succession and gave both Málainn and Naomh Mhuire hopes of pipping them to the final promotion slot. The Convoy team travel to Fanad next week while Malin are away to Naomh Brid. The Yes Chef Catering Division 3 trophy will be in Páirc na Dunaibh next Saturday. Burt will have it all to do against a Downings side on a good run of form and the winners will secure the Division 3 title – a loss for Burt could see also them remain in Division 3 for another season.
Na Dúnaibh 1-9 Naomh Bríd 0-10
Burt 0-9 Naomh Mhuire Conmhaigh 1-9
Naomh Colmcille 2-13 Naomh Ultan 1-11
Naomh Mhuire Íochtar na Rossan 4-10 Gaeil Fhánada 5-11
Malin 2-17 Red Hughs 1-8
The struggle to survive turned into a two-way race when Naomh Mhuire Lower Rosses lost at home to Fanad Gaels in a high-scoring encounter at The Banks. The other two relegation candidates played each other in Newtwoncunnningham with Naomh Colmcille triumphing and leaving their survival prospects in their own hands when they travel to Red Hughs next week while Naomh Ultan’s final game is at home to Naomh Muire.
