A strong opening quarter from Maghera was the difference, where points from Shea McKenna (free), Luke Diamond and Tiarnan McCormick helped open a lead they would maintain throughout.
With St Ronan’s wasteful infront of goal, an excellent score from Ruairi Magill just before half time saw the Derry side lead 0-6 to 0-2 at the break.
On the restart, Diamond traded scores with Rogan McVeigh to maintain that four point lead at the second water break, before Lurgan staged a strong finish. Ethan McKenna, Thomas Mallon and Jonathan Hannon were all on target, with Hannon unlucky not to find the net when he flicked on a long ball in the closing moments.
