Canavan sees Erne men extend unbeaten run

A dominant first-half display from Fermanagh saw Peter Canavan’s side continue their unbeaten run at Dr Cullen Park yesterday.

In that opening half the Division 4 leaders demonstrated the gulf in class between the sides, opening a 0-12 to 0-2 interval lead with some attractive football.

Unanswered points by Fermanagh’s Thomas Corrigan, Daniel Kille (two), Conor Quigley and Barry Mulrone set them on the way to an expected victory.

Carlow hit the first four points of the second half but the game’s only goal finished the game. It arrived in the 65th minute following a footblock in the large square on Fermanagh’s Niall McGovern. Kille’s spot kick was well parried by Carlow goalie Andrew O’Brien, but the loose ball ran to Thomas Corrigan, who volleyed home.

Scorers for Carlow: JJ Smith 0-3fs, Brian Murphy 0-2fs, Brendan Murphy, D St Ledger, D Hayden 0-1 each.

Scorers for Fermanagh: D Kille 0-7 (5fs), T Corrigan 1-3, B Mulrone 0-2, C Quigley, E Donnelly, E Maguire, P Ward 0-1 each.

FERMANAGH: R Gallagher; N McGovern, B Cox, N Bogue; C Quigley, S Lyons, B Mulrone; J Sherry, E Donnelly; D Keenan, T Corrigan, E Maguire; P Ward, D Kille, S McCabe.
