Fermanagh 1-08 Monaghan 0-10

Eoin Donnelly punched to the net in injury time as Fermanagh secured their place in this year's Ulster final with a one point win over Monaghan in Omagh today.

In a stunning finish, the game looked to be slipping away from Rory Gallagher's charges who had led for vast majority of the contest as a Drew Wylie point put Monaghan two ahead.

But, a resilient Fermanagh were to have the last say as Ryan Jones punted a high ball towards the Monaghan goal from the right hand side and Donnelly got to the ball to punch it to the back of the net.

Fermanagh then saw out the final four minutes of the tie and the final

whistle was greeted with an outpouring of emotion as the Fermanagh supporters flooded onto ther pitch.

Monaghan entered the game as hot favourites but it was Fermanagh who had much the better of the exchanges as they opened up a 0-05 to 0-01 lead by the 28th minute.

Aidan Breen rattled over two superb points from play, one off either foot, while Sean Quigley notched three points from frees.

Monaghan were struggling to breakdown a disciplined Fermanagh defence and they only opened their account midway through the half through a Conor McManus free.

McManus, who was excellently marshalled throughout by Che Cullen, did clip over another two frees while Fintan Kelly tagged on a point from play to cut the gap to one, but Fermanagh had the last say of the half as Conall Jones banged over a score from distance to leave it 0-06 to 0-04 at the interval.

Both sides struggled for scores in the second half with Fermanagh finding it much tougher break through the Farney reaguard but points from Ryan McAnespie and a McManus free had the sides level with 14 minutes to go.

Monaghan then edged in front for the first time in the game as Drew Wylie landed an inspirational score from play to make it 0-07 to 0-06 but Fermanagh answered as Tomas Corrigan converted a free.

However, it appeared to be slipping away from Fermanagh as Colin Walshe and McManus put Monaghan two ahead, 0-09 to 0-07. Corrigan did cut it back to one but a second Wylie score looked to have given Monaghan the momentum going into added on time.

However, there was to be a final big twist as the Fermanagh captain found the net to send his side through to a first Ulster final appearance since 2008.
