Fermanagh stroll it


BRENDAN McGARRY helped himself to two goals as Fermanagh emerged comfortable winners in a one-sided encounter in Ballinamore.

Fermanagh scored two goals before the break thanks to John Duffy and Sean Corrigan.

Leitrim's best player, Michael Lane, reduced the arrears with three points from frees in the closing stages of the half to leave Fermanagh ahead 2-8 to 0-4 at the interval.

But a third and fourth goal for Fermanagh after the restart sealed this one-way tie for the home side in style, despite Lane's goal.
