Coleraine off to a winning start thumbnailColeraine’s Richard Carey tries to clear from this Slaughtneil attack.

EOGHAN Rua made a winning start to their League Division One campaign with a narrow three point victory, 2-7 to 0-10, over Derry and Ulster champions Slaughtneil on home soil last Sunday afternoon.
A large crowd attended this opening league game of the season at Pairc Eoghain Rua where the triple county champions were afforded a guard of honour by the Eoghan Rua players as they strode out onto the pitch.
That's where the nicities ended, however, as both sides got stuck into the action in a first half that bubbled along with a couple of 'get togethers' that threatened to test the referee's patience but he did well to keep all 30 players on the pitch.
Matters did settle down though in the second half.
