Newly promoted Pomeroy created a major shock by dumping holders Killyclogher out of the Tyrone SFC with a 1-9 to 0-7 win at Dunmoyle.

John Loughran's 15th-minute goal gave the Plunketts the edge, and Killyclogher had to play the second-half with just 14 men, following the second yellow dismissal of defender Gary Wallace.

It was 1-2 to 0-4 at the break, but Dominic Corrigan's side went back in front through James Carlin. However, Killyclogher managed just one point in the final quarter.

Clonoe came from behind to beat Dromore by 1-10 to 0-12 with a brilliant Patrick Doris goal.

They trailed by four points going into the last five minutes, but staged a rousing comeback to deny a Dromore side that looked set for the quarter-finals.

Coalisland's scoring burst at the beginning of the second-half saw them shake off the stubborn challenge of Galbally, winning by 3-11 to 1-11 at Edendork.

Coalisland led by 0-8 to 0-3 at the break, but they grabbed two goals in the opening five minutes of the second-half, with McNeice and Stephen McNally hitting the net.

Galbally responded with a Sean Murphy goal, but the Fianna finished the job off when midfielder McNally went through for his second goal eight minutes from the end.

Teenager James Garrity grabbed two goals as Trillick enjoyed a 3-17 to 0-6 victory over Strabane.

Rory Brennan scored the other goal, while Lee Brennan weighed in with eight points in a painfully one-sided Healy Park tie.
