Allianz Football League Division 3
Longford 0-14 Westmeath 0-10
Fermanagh 3-15 Laois 3-9
IN TODAY’S REFIXED Allianz Football League games, there were wins in Division 3 for Longford and Fermanagh.
Billy O’Loughlin’s Longford eased their relegation fears with a 0-15 to 0-10 win over Westmeath, denting the promotion hopes of their neighbours in the process.
Driven on by Mickey Quinn, Longford shot six points in success during the second period before Westmeath finished the game with 13 men. David Lynch was red carded seven times from time and Kieran Martin picked up a black card in injury-time.
Fermanagh won their second game on the bounce, seeing off Laois in a six-goal thriller. They won by 3-15 to 3-9 after three-pointers from Sean Quigley, Ciaran Corrigan and Darragh McGurn. Laois hit the net through a brace from Mark Barry and one form Evan O’Carroll, but it wasn’t enough.
