Rossies march on

Roscommon put an end to a disappointing Championship campaign for Cavan, with a resounding 0-16 to 0-5 victory at Breffni Park in Saturday's All-Ireland SFC Round 2B Qualifier.

In what was an, at times, a drab affair, the first score didn't come until the 16th minute when Diarmuid Murtagh clipped over for the eventual winners.

But Roscommon took complete control after the break, kicking eight points without replay in the third quarter to set up their clash with Armagh.

Limerick advance

LIMERICK were left to rue a number of missed chances as they fell to Sligo, 0-12 to 0-10 in Round 3A of the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers at Markievicz Park.

The Yeats men had super sub Stephen Coen to thank for this victory, with his two late contributions critical and finally turned the tie in their favour.

The sides were deadlocked, 0-6 each, at the break. Goalkeepers Adrian Devaney and Brian Scanlon both traded 45s early on before Adrian Marren, Pat Hughes and Mark Breheny gave Sligo the early initiative.

But Limerick's Ian Ryan scored two points in a minute during first-half injury-time to level matters.

Coen though would have the final say after he set up Shane McManus before settling it with the insurance.
