It was a proverbial game of two halves at Lisbellaw as Fermanagh staged a second-half comeback that lacked enough killer instinct in attack to plunder the goals they needed to secure something from the game.

Leitrim were 3-10 to 0-3 up at half-time with Padraig O'Donnell hitting 2-6. In between, Kevin O'Connor had scored the Connacht men's second goal.

Sixteen points separated the sides at the break and in the second half Fermanagh owned possession. JP McGarry scored a fine goal but Fermanagh were never going to do enough to level the scores.
