Week 6 of the season 2017/18 was completed at the weekend with a total of 70 goals scored in 13 games across the three divisions on Saturday afternoon.
In the Premier Division Ardmore lead the way with maximum points from their first six games. They have also scored 32 goals to date with 8 scored against BBOB on Saturday. In this form they will be hard to stop although title rivals, Claudy Rovers had a great win at Drummond coming from behind in the last 15 minutes to claim all three points. They have played two less games than Ardmore and sit in second spot with three wins and a draw from their first four games. Champions, Lisahally, have only played twice with one win and will not relish relinquishing their crown so early. Newly promoted Roe Rovers, are finding life tough at the top. They have had some off the pitch difficulties and this has been reflected in their results propping up the table without a win in four starts but proved a handling for Draperstown Celtic at the weekend. They narrowly missed out on a point.
Division One is shaping up to be a real battle ground. This league is notoriously difficult to win as teams are more than capable of taking points off each other. Ballykelly notched up their third win on the trot and sit in second a point behind leaders, Greysteel who squeaked a lucky point out of their game against Irish Street at the weekend. Caw had a great 5-2 win over Ardmore Reserves and are unbeaten in three. Likewise, Donemana are unbeaten but have only played two games. Tullyally got their first points of the season with a great away win at Limavady Rugby Club. Dromore saw off the spirited challenge of Churchill winning 4-3.
In Division Two Eglinton (photo) sit proudly on top after hammering Lincoln Courts Reserves by 0-7. It’s better news for Roe Rovers as their Reserves won 1-3 away to Kickstart, who sit bottom. That is two wins from two for the Reserves who can mount a title challenge. Roe Valley had no game but also are unbeaten like Donemana Reserves who picked up a great three points away to Artigarvan by winning 2-4.
