Cavan rising still gathering tempo

CAVAN continue to make progress and are now one win away from an Ulster final after a tight affair against Fermanagh. It was a poor enough game, but that won't worry their manager Terry Hyland in the slightest.

Championship matches are knockout affairs and the most important thing is the result. They just about deserved their victory and can now go back to training tomorrow night with another game to look forward to.

In the west, Mayo impressed with a facile victory over a very disappointing Roscommon team.

The gap between Mayo and the rest in the province is actually widening and the only concern for James Horan and his men at this stage would be the lack of quality games before an All-Ireland quarter final in August.

They were clinical and professional in every aspect and despite the opposition, will be there or thereabouts later in the year.
