Cavan v Fermanagh Game at a Glance
Man of the match
Cian Mackey (Cavan)
Not too many contenders but Mackey created a lot of scores.
The straight red card for Sean Quigley. Fermanagh never recovered.
Why Michael Duffy was put in charge of this game. A different appointment might have been the wiser option.
The final whistle. A tortuous passage of play thankfully came to an end.
Duffy got over-involved and all that could be heard in the second half was his whistle.
WHAT THEY SAID
Cavan manager Terry Hyland:
"People said the last day that we had the advantage of having a championship game already, whereas Fermanagh were fresh. We turned that myth over."
Fermanagh manager Peter Canavan:
"At times some of the tackles were careless, but some of the (cards) were very questionable."
