Hollywood Developments Division 3A
GLYDE RANGERS 2-10
Glyde Rangers finished the season with a one-sided victory over a Westerns side who failed to get a win over the entire campaign. Both neighbours will be disappointed with their league showing for contrasting reasons.
Westerns landed their point in the first half as they trailed 0-7 to 0-1 at the interval, Aaron Devlin putting his hand up for a championship start, while Ciaráin Sheridan played on the square.
Second half goals showed Rangers ruthlessness on the night. Wing-forwards Barry Brennan and Jack McKeever got the goals which saw the visitors run out easy winners in Reaghstown.
WESTERNS: Dermot McArdle; Liam Murray, James Ward, Connor McClellan; Conor Smyth, Andy Murray, Adam Duffy; Roan Gallagher, Finn Duffy; Patrick Kerley, Ryan Duffy, Mick Martin; Brian Coyle, John Murray, Matthew Kane.
GLYDE: David Brennan; Fiachra Sheridan, Gerard Farrell, Peter Duffy; Lee Finnegan 0-1, Gerard Bourton, Ultan Larney 0-1; Dion Conlon, Conor Sheridan; Barry Brennan 1-0, Killian Scott, Jack McKeever 1-0; Aaron Devlin 0-3, Ciaráin Sheridan 0-1, Oisín Lynch 0-3. Subs: Niall Sharkey, Pauric Kearney, Dean Smyth, Dylan Kearney, Seán Devaney 0-1.

GLEN EMMETS 4-14
NAOMH MALACHI 0-10
Glen Emmets captain Conor Grimes received the Division 3A trophy from Kevin Gordon, Louth GAA Minor Board chairman, after the Tullyallen men dismantled Naomh Malachi at home on Saturday evening.
Eoghan Maguire, known as ‘The Wizard’, cast his spell on the Mals early in the game with two goals and that laid the foundations for their 13th win of the season.
Wing-back Luke McCarthy found the net for another goal before half-time to make it 3-8 to 0-2. Credit to the visitors, they were much more competitive in the second half. But impressive substitute Josh Cole landed 1-4 off the bench for the unbeaten league champions.
EMMETS: Conor Kelly; Tom Grimes, Lewis Fordham; Charlie Walsh, Emmet Delaney, Luke McCarthy 1-0; Robbie Byrne 0-2, Seán Brodigan 0-1; Jamie Farnan, Alex Blakeman Fowler 0-1, Rhys Fordham 0-2; Eoghan Maguire 2-1, Alex Carolan 0-3. Subs: Dairmuid Walsh, Josh Cole 1-4, David Bracken, Jamie Gilkes, C Byrne, J Andrews.

Lannléire completed their Division 3A programme with an eight-point victory over Na Piarsaigh Blackrock in Dunleer on Saturday evening.
The sides were level, six points each, at the interval, but the hosts pulled four points clear in the third quarter before Darragh Malone found an in-form Paul Callan to land the vital goal on 49 minutes to put the result beyond doubt.
