The event will not be held in the NHL Division 3A & B divisions.

NHL DIVISION 3A

Tyrone remains at the top of Division 3A with Roscommon after a comfortable 3-14, 1-11 win over Monaghan at Inniskeen.

Tyrone never fell behind as they maintained their unbeaten run, helped by goals from Tiernan Murphy, Ciarán Lagan and Damian Casey.

Murphy’s goal late in the opening quarter helped Tyrone lead 1-4, 0-2, although Monaghan responded with some points from Declan Hughes and goaltender Hugh Byrne to fall 1-6, 0-6 at half-time.

Lagan added a second goal for Tyrone and even after Fergal Rafter scored one for Monaghan, the visitors responded almost immediately with a Casey penalty.

In the meantime,

Mickey Joe Egan’s late show choked Armagh at the Athletic ground, helping Roscommon to a 2-17 to 1-19 win as the sub went 1-1 to help save the win from loss.

The home side did enough to secure a tie, but despite Fionntán Donnelly’s scoring – the Armagh corner striker found the ball from placed to make it 15-0 – 15 outside shots proved costly. Cathal Dolan contributed 0-11 to Roscommon’s cause when the sides were bogged down 0-10 each at the break.

Brendan Mulry’s superb goal in the 53rd minute seemed to give the visitors the initiative, but when Dean Gaffney scored for Armagh with seven minutes to go to give his side a 1:16–1:13 advantage, it looked like an upset was in store.

But Roscommon managed to keep his nerve.

Elsewhere, Warwickshire defeated Louth 3–13 to 1–19 in a bottom-of-the-table clash at Páirc na hÉireann.

A late John Collins goal with the final puck ensured the final day would decide the fate of the two winless teams.

Warwickshire appeared to have done enough as they led 2-9 to 0-5 at half-time. Collins punished a dormant visitors’ defense with a quick free-kick and Kelvin McGee also found the net.

Louth closed the gap thanks to Seán Kerrisk and when Paul Mathews completed the comeback with a superb goal swing everything was red.

Jamie McDonnell fired from a free kick, Conor Quigley and Seánie Crosbie then pointed and just when it looked like the home side were dead and buried Collins intervened.

NHL DIVISION 3B

Fermanagh maintained his perfect record in Division 3B thanks to a 2-22, 0-9 win over Lancashire at Darver.

Lancashire fought gallantly early on, and a great long-range shot from John Baily ended it 3-0 2-0 within 12 minutes.

But with that endless supply of ball into space, Fermanagh beat his opponents 9-0 1-0 and confidently led 12-0 3-0 at the break. Lancashire didn’t throw in the towel and with a spirited performance they scored first three second-half goals which also included good efforts from Kevin Fennelly and Mick Morgan.

However, Fermanagh finished the game with two quick goals from Conor McShea and substitute Eoin Cleary to put his side on the road to victory, as well as top scorer Daniel Teague (0-6, 2f), Luca McCusker and Seán Corrigan they continued to shine and strive for victory.

In the 65th minute, a free point from Paddy Lynam proved crucial as Longford moved up to second in the table with a narrow 1-15–1-14 win over Leitrim at Pearse Park.

The teams were equal six times after Leitrim took a four-point lead in the 21st minute, with Gavin O’Hagan and Joe Murray on form. A goal by Cathal Mullane in the first minute of added time put them two points ahead (1-8, 0-9).

The teams continued to battle for control before Lynam’s effort saw Longford regain the lead and they were able to cling to the win.
