Fermanagh and Western League round-up January 11

The prestigious Coca Cola Irish Junior Cup took centre stage for Fermanagh and Western sides at the weekend with eight local teams in action with contrasting results. Three in a row chasing Strathroy Harps had a comfortable 4-0 win away to Queens Graduates while Lisbellaw United required extra time and penalties to defeat Ford away from home.

Paul McGrath got the United goal but hero of the day was keeper James McGrath who not only saved two penalties but also scored the decisive spot kick to ensure his side went through to the fifth round.

Erne Rovers played host to Enniskillen Santos in a local derby and goals from Seamus Ryder [2] and John Muldoon saw them go through 3-1. Killen Rangers went through on penalties after it had finished 2-2 away to St Matthews while Drumquin United put their league form behind them to beat Glendermott after extra time.

Tummery Athletic also required extra time to overcome Armagh City Reserves with the help of goals from Ryan Cunningham and Ruairi Sludden while Lisnarick defeated Dunaghy on the same scoreline with Niall Gormley and Peter Law on target.

There was also action in the league with Enniskillen Rangers easing their worries at the wrong end of the division one table by winning 4-1 away to bottom of the table Shelbourne.

In Division Two league leaders NFC Kesh came out on top by the odd goal in seven at home to Strule United with Stephen Simms (2), Niall McMenamin and Mark Jones getting their goals, Tommy Murphy bagging a hat trick for the visitors.

St.Patricks maintained their push in second place with a resounding 5-1 win away to Irvinestown Wanderers while in the only other game played in that division Sion Mills Rec beat Glebe United 2-0.

In Division Three league leaders Magheraveely won 4-1 away to Dunbreen Rovers with the Little brothers Malcolm and Andy scoring a brace each while Enniskillen Athletic were in outstanding form as they crushed Augher Stars 10-0 away from home, Michael Simpson, Danny Dunbar and Richard Flaherty all scoring hat tricks with Darren Simpson also on target.
