With both the top two teams dropping points tonight, Naomh Bríd leaped two places to third in the table and improved their slim chances of promotion after a surprisingly comfortable win over table-toppers Burt. The Inishowen team lost top spot, on points difference, to Downings who shared the spoils with Red Hughs in Killygordon. Third place Malin drew with relegation candidates Naomh Ultan, and the Dunkineely side made ground on Naomh Colmcille who lost against Fanad in Páirc Uí Shíal.
Naomh Bríd 2-9 Burt 0-6
Naomh Ultan 1-8 Malin 0-11
Fanad Gaels 4-12 Naomh Colmcille 1-13
Red Hughs 0-13 Downings 1-10
Convoy play Naomh Muire Lower Rosses tomorrow and while tonight’s results – with Burt, Downings and Malin all dropping points – and a win would put move them into third place. Burt and Downogs, however, are still strong favourites fo promotion. A win for Naomh Mhuire Íochta na Rosann is vital if the Gaeltacht side are to have any chance of avoiding the drop to Division 4.
