Seventeen-year-old Shane McGullion bagged two goals and veteran Paul Ward notched 1-4 from play as Derrygonnelly dethroned champions Roslea.

Roslea opened the scoring in the first minute with a goal from Niall Cosgrove, who palmed the ball into the net after Seamus Quigley had broken it to him.

However, Derrygonnelly completely took over and kicked eight points without reply, with Ward simply unmarkable as he fired over four from play.

Two goals quickly followed for the Harps, with McGullion keeping his cool to fire the ball home after a surging run by Ryan Jones and Ward hammering his shot into the bottom corner. Ruairi McGuinness lashed to the net for Roslea just before the break and a brace of Sean Quigley frees kept them in touch.

In the second half Quigley raised a green flag of his own but McGullion grabbed his second when he palmed home to copperfasten Derrygonnelly's win.
