Last-gasp Brady saves day
Published 24/01/2011 | 05:00
Fermanagh's Hugh Brady landed a long-range point with virtually the last kick of the game to earn new Erne boss John O'Neill a draw from his first game in charge.
Adrian McGuckian will feel that his UUJ side should probably have won the game after leading by six points early in the second half but Fermanagh rallied and seven unanswered points put the Erne men into the lead.
However, points from substitutes Conor McManus and Eugene McVerry looked to have snatched the win for UUJ but up popped Brady with his late score to see the sides share the spoils.
