Desertmartin 2-9
Magilligan 0-13

Desertmartin had a much changed team on display at Magilligan, but a late surge took them to a two point victory.

Paul McCrystal has missed much of the season to date but a goal in each half will give Kevin O'Neill something to think about ahead of Friday's championship clash with Craigbane.

The visitors led at half time by 1-5 to 0-5, but by the second water break, Magilligan had edged two points in front due to the accuracy of Colly Mullan.

On the resumption McCrystal found the net again and that ended the Magilligan challenge.
