All Saints continued their good start in the Ulster Intermediate Club Football League when they travelled to Castlewellan on Sunday afternoon and recorded their second win in three games to remain unbeaten in Group D.
Following an opening day draw in a tempestuous affair away to Keady, All Saints entertained Clann na Banna on day two and had two to spare over the Banbridge side and on Sunday it was another County Down side who entertained the Ballymena men with the result very similar to last week.
A young experimental All Saints side overcame a dogged Drumgath challenge at Castlewellan on Sunday. Facing a strong breeze in the 1sf half. All Saints led at the break 1.2 to 4 points with the goal coming from Patrick Ferris.
The 2nd half was nip and tuck, with Drumgath coming to within a point as they used the breeze to their advantage.
However, All Saints closed out to win the game on a score line of 1-7 to 0-8 thus maintaining their unbeaten record in the Ulster Intermediate league. Their final group game is Wolf Tones from Armagh for a place in Semi Finals.
Encouraging performances from youngsters Darach Bradley and Archie McGreevy the main positives from an otherwise dogged performance by an experimental All Saints side.
