Seamus Quigley the star as Roslea move into last four of Ulster championship

Fermanagh champs too strong for Cavan’s Ballinagh


Roslea 1-12 Ballinagh 0-11

A penalty fired home in injury time by Seamus Quigley secured Roslea’s passage through to the Ulster club semi finals.

Fermanagh champions Roslea had this game at Brewster Park apparently all wrapped up early in the second half when they pushed out into a 0-11 to 0-4 lead but the Erne side then faltered.

Cavan champions Ballinagh gradually ground down the deficit to make this a riproaring finale. Roslea were hanging on to a one point lead but in a late raid Quigley was hauled down and from the resultant penalty he thumped home a goal.

Quigley was the game’s star performer as he finished with a tally of 1-7 with his brother Sean chipping in with four points.

A point each from Colm Gumley and David Finnegan had Ballinagh two clear inside five minutes of the start but for the remainder of the half it was Roslea in control.
