Derrygonnelly Harps hit high note but Gaels blow in to have big final say

Fermanagh senior football

Derrygonnelly Harps took a decisive step towards retaining their Fermanagh senior football championship title yesterday when they beat Devenish by 2-13 to 0-9.

Martin Green's side will now meet Erne Gaels in the decider on October 2 and will certainly not be easily deflected from their dual coup.

Goals from Jonathan McGurn and Declan Cassidy emphasised their superiority over a Devenish side for whom Barry Muldoon and John O'Flanagan offered spirited resistance.

Erne Gaels also showed eye-catching form by surprising Roslea in the other semi, their 2-11 to 1-6 win owing much to the marksmanship of Thomas McCaffrey, Seamus Ryder, Michael Og McGarrigle and Ryan Lyons. Seamus Quigley top-scored for Roslea with 1-3.

Ryder and McGarrigle hit the net for the Gaels who showed a tremendous work-rate throughout.

Meanwhile, Crossmaglen Rangers had it all their own way in the Armagh championship by beating Tir na Nog by 6-21 to 0-8, while Maghery beat Wolfe Tones by 0-12 to 0-7.
