Roslea 1-12 Belcoo 1-09
Roslea denied Belcoo a first ever Fermanagh SFC title yesterday with Quigley brothers Seamus and Sean hitting a combined total of 1-10 in Brewster Park.
Belcoo, appearing in their first final in 25 years, went 0-4 to 0-1 ahead courtesy of Gavin Leonard but they were outscored 1-4 to 0-1 in the second quarter, the goal coming from Sean Quigley.
