Offaly Give Meath An Almighty Fright In Leinster SFC
Written 2 months ago by Midlands Sport
Offaly footballers almost caused the shock of the championship in Navan yesterday when they ran a fancied Meath team to just two points after a titanic struggle.
The Faithful County were four points up at one stage with Niall McNamee outstanding up front but a soft goal conceeded to Bryan McMahon in the 63rd minute was the key score.
Offaly team manager John Maughan said after the match that his side deserved to win it:
Offaly will now prepare for the football qualifiers in four weeks time.
Tyrone had 6 points to spare against Derry in Omagh, prevailing by 1-19 to 1-13 in their Ulster preliminary round tie.
Roscommon are into the semi finals of the Connacht senior championship following their 3-17 to 12 points dismissal of Leitrim at Doctor Hyde Park.
In Leinster, Louth went to Wexford and prevailed by 22 points to 1-14.
