With just two points separating the sides on the table, the Courtbane men travelled in hope but Boyle finished with 2-1 to see off the visitors.

GLEN EMMETS 2-12
Glen Emmets got back to winning ways with a comfortable victory over winless Westerns in Reaghstown on Saturday night.

Justin Cunningham found the range for Westerns as they trailed 0-6 to 0-1 at the break. The second half belonged to James Butler as the wing-forward shot 2-1 to provide the scoreline with that extra bit of gloss for the leaders as they head into round three in pole position.

GLYDE RANGERS 0-10
Lannléire opened up a five-point gap over opponents Glyde Rangers in a crunch game for the promotion play-off spot in Division 3A on Sunday afternoon.
The Dunleer men lost Peter Fortune and his replacement, Lorcan Callaghan, to injuries inside the first four minutes. These stoppages contributed to lengthy additional time at the end of first half.
Brian Duffy showed well for the hosts but Darragh Malone showed supreme concentration to blast home his first goal before the delayed half-time to give the visitors a 1-5 to 0-7 lead at the interval in Tallanstown.
Glen O’Reilly brought on Colin Murphy a minute before the break and he kicked a free along with adding five more second half scores, four from frees.
Glyde could only muster three second half scores and Malone's second half goal arrived on 46 minutes and it capped a brilliant display from the young man.
GLYDE: David Brennan; Lee Finnegan 0-1, Conor McCullagh, Gerrard Farrell; Fiachra Sheridan, Conor Sheridan, Tadhg Kellett; Ciaráin Sheridan, Dion Conlon 0-1; Barry Brennan, Alan Kirk, Aaron Devlin; Brian Duffy 0-4, Trevor O'Brien 0-4, Ultan Larney. Subs: Gerard Bourton, Céin Sheridan, Seán Devaney.
