Elsewhere in Division 1B

Arles-Kilcruise are gone top of Division after Lar Wall’s men, minus Ross Munnelly, pulled off a fine win over Rosenallis.

David Conway was in fine form as he kicked six points while Caomhan Brennan, who operated at full forward, scored a crucial goal that left Kilcruise 1-4 to 0-4 up against Rosenallis at half time.

This game pitted manager Johnny Irwin against his former team and he had Ronan Murray on the scoresheet three times as he fired over points for Rosenallis along with Eoin Dunne and Brian Fitzpatrick.

Rosenallis drew level ten minutes into the second half through Glen Shaw and Donnagh Callely but Kilcruise kicked on again.

Conway was instrumental while Jason McLoughlin, Seán Meaney and Fran Egan also scored in a 1-14 to 0-9 win.

Meanwhile, neighbours Arles-Killeen are just behind Kilcruise in second place after defeating Killeshin.

A Donie Kingston goal had Killeen 1-6 to 0-5 ahead at half time but Killeshin fought back.

David Aston and Stephen Attride were to the fore as Killeshin drew level as we entered the closing few minutes.

Nevertheless, Niall O’Rourke popped up with a late goal before Brendan O’Shea kicked the insurance point to seal a 2-10 to 1-9 win.
