Glenullin 2-8 Ballymaguigan 1-11
Four points from Paddy Bradley, in his first game in two years, wasn't enough for Glenullin as they were reeled in at home to a brave Ballymaguigan comeback in Friday night's relegation four pointer.
A 63rd minute free from Gary Burke rescued a point for the visitors, after they trailed 1-7 to 0-3 at the interval.
A Neil McNicholl goal put Glenullin 1-2 to 0-2 ahead early on, as he operated in a two man full-forward line with Bradley.
Four Gary Burke points cut the gap in the third quarter, before a Darren Conway penalty levelled the game in the 45th minute.
Paul Rafferty responded with a goal but Glenullin were unable to see out the game and dissent saw a three frees moved forward, including Burke's equaliser.
In a sub-plot, Glenullin's next game is away to Newbridge (Wed 7.15), who are managed by Paddy Bradley.
'The Glen' will have his brother Eoin available for selection after a two game suspension.
Also on Friday night, Drumsurn were 2-15 to 1-12 winners away to Kilrea, thanks to second-half goals from Daryl Mullan (penalty) and Pearse McNickle.
Kilrea had Rory Maguire sent off after 15 minutes and it was Drumsurn who held a 0-8 to 0-7 half-time lead.
Midway through the second-half, Eamon Darragh's fisted goal had the home side four points ahead.
Mullan scored a 55th minute penalty, after a foul on Dara Rafferty, to change the game, before McNickle's late goal.
