Scores on the boards after first championship week

Lisnaskea’s Daniel Kille has taken an early lead at the top of the championship scoring charts.

The first weekend of Fermanagh championship action saw 22-200 scored in nine action packed clashes across the county.

It was a good weekend for Lisnaskea as they got the better of Derrylin to progress to a semi-final against Newtownbutler or St Patrick’s. It was better again for Daniel Kille who finished the weekend as he took a lead at the top of the championship scoreboard with 12 points.

His nearest rival comes from an unlikely quarter. Brookeborough haven’t been tipped for championship success by many, but  they have a man who knows where the posts are in the shape of in Conor Goodwin. His 2-3 haul helped the Herber MacMahon’s give Belnaleck their fill of it in the junior championship first round, although Belnaleck ultimately prevailed by three points.

The meeting of Roslea and Ederney was previewed as a shoot-out between Sean Quigley and Paul McCusker. And so it proved, with each hitting 1-5 to finish the weekend joint third in the scoring charts.

Derrygonnelly’s Paul Ward completes the top five, hit 1-4 crucial in seeing the defending champions through to the semi-finals.
