Corrigan on fire for Ernesiders

FERMANAGH 3-16 LEITRIM 2-12

SEAN CORRIGAN hit 2-4 as Fermanagh survived a stiff challenge from a resurgent Leitrim at Maguiresbridge.

Leitrim got off to a great start and Clement Cunniffe's two-goal blitz helped his side to a five-point lead with 11 minutes of the first half left.

Fermanagh's John Duffy and Ryan Bogue began to control midfield and goals from Declan McGarry in the 27th minute and then Corrigan turned the tide as the hosts led 3-9 to 2-6 at the break.

Fermanagh continued to outscore Leitrim in the second half and they now meet Tyrone in the final on June 9.
