Late Route-One Goal Causes Major Shock In Ulster Semi-Final

Late Route-One Goal Causes Major Shock In Ulster Semi-Final

Disciplined to the point of inertia, Fermanagh vs Monaghan won't go down as an Ulster semi-final for the ages.

Coming into the game as roaring favourites, it is Monaghan who will now toil their way through the qualifiers en route to a prospective place in the Super 8s.

Fermanagh, after in impressive victory against Armagh in the provincial quarter-final, now await the winners of Donegal vs Down to determine their opponents in the Ulster football final.

In splendid sunshine, wides and fouls were more common-place than scores in today's drab affair.

Two points down, into the second minutes of injury-time, Fermanagh threw the shackles off every so slightly and tried to just drop a lofty pass in and hope for the best; and to what end!

Questions about the usually reliant (and ultra-proactive) Rory Beggan in the Monaghan goal may well be asked, but Eoin Donnelly won't care - although he did take a nasty hit for his troubles.
