Ballinascreen bounced back from defeat to Slaughtneil with a comfortable home win against Coleraine on Wednesday night.
LEADON TIMBERFRAME SHC ROUND 2
It sets up Sunday's clash with Banagher at Owenbeg as a likely battle for second spot.
If Ballinascreen and Slaughtneil (who play Coleraine) win, it will finalise the group regardless of the unplayed game.
Reece McSorley dropped off to play as a sweeper for 'Screen, with Niall Holly sitting in a similar role at the other end which made for a defensive opening to the game.
Three John McCloskey points gave 'Screen some daylight ahead of the half-time, with them 0-10 to 0-2 ahead.
The visitors struggled for scores, with Sean Leo McGoldrick mustering two points late on.
Noel Rafferty and Cormac Gough had half chances for goals, but their shots went over the bar.
