Killen seals revival

Lisnaskea 0-13
Doohamlet 1-7
Ulster Club IFC Final

Lisnaskea Emmets became the first Fermanagh club to win a provincial title when they produced a stunning second-half comeback to beat Doohamlet in a hard-fought decider at Breffni Park.

The turning point came when Lisnaskea veteran Pearse Collins somehow managed to block what looked like a certain goal, which would have put the Monaghan champions seven points ahead.

Stephen Carters, Kevin Curran and Shane Ingram all scored to leave just a point between the teams and when Daniel Killen kicked a score from a sideline ball to draw the teams level, there was only going to be one winner.

Killen added another two points with a Conor Curran score sandwiched in between and the knockout blows were landed.
