Down hurling decider

Ballygalget won the Down Senior Hurling Final at Portaferry as they beat Ballycran 0-6 to 0-2 on Saturday.

Neither side could register a score in the second half as appalling weather conditions made playing hurling virtually impossible as Ballygalget avenged last year's narrow final defeat.

Derry SFC

Meanwhile, Loup qualified for the Derry SFC decider by beating Ballinascreen 4-9 to 0-10 at Owenbeg.

Thomas Mallon scored Loup's first goal in the first half directly from a 45 and Ballinascreen suffered a further blow before the break as Barry Grant received a straight red card for an apparent strike on an opponent.

Leading 1-4 to 0-6 at the break, Loup increased their advantage and a Jason Rocks goal with 13 minutes left extended their lead to seven.

Loup's victory was rounded off by further goals from Ciaran Devlin and Paul McVey.

Holders Slaughtneil saw off Ballinderry 2-09 to 0-9 at Owenbeg in Sunday's second last-four clash.

Armagh SFC quarter-finals
