Fermanagh 3 – 10

Westmeath 1 – 15

A late point from John Woods helped Fermanagh through to the next stage of the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers on a 3-10 to 1-15 scoreline.

First half goals from Conor Quigley and Damian Kelly gave Peter Canavan’s side a 2-05 to 0-07 lead at the break in Mullingar. However the home side drew level in the second half thanks to a John Heslin penalty but Fermanagh fired back with a third exquisite goal from Ryan Jones.

Woods applied the coup de grace late on as Westmeath, who had Kieran Martin dismissed, were sent packing.
