NFL round-up: Roscommon humble Cork


Roscommon netted four goals in an 18-point NFL Division 1 humbling of Cork at Páirc Uí Rinn on Sunday.

Ciaran Murtagh netted twice while Senan Kilbride and Cathal Cregg were also on target as Kevin McStay and Fergal O’Donnell's side beat Cork 4-25 to 3-10 to record their second win of the national league campaign.

Roscommon, who were winners last time out when they beat Kerry by 0-14 to 1-10 at Fitzgerald Stadium on 7 February, were always in charge against the Rebels after racking up a nine-point lead at half-time.

Cork themselves netted three goals in an action-packed match in Cork, two from full forward Peter Kelleher and another from Luke Connolly.

Donegal beat Mayo 1-14 to 1-12 at Ballybofey to leave Stephen Rochford's side without a point from their three NHL matches and rooted to the bottom of the table.

Brendan Harrison's injury-time point had handed the Connacht champions an 0-08 to 0-07 lead at half time, and Mayo went three points up when Diarmuid O’Connor netted the first goal of the match in the 45th minute.

However, Leo McLoone netted on 57 minutes to give Donegal a 1-12 to 1-10 advantage, and Rory Gallagher’s side were able to hold on to go level on points with Dublin at the top of the table.

Kerry beat Down 0-22 to 0-6 to move off the bottom of the NFL Division 1 table at Newry.

The Kingdom were 0-9 to 0-3 ahead at the interval, and stretched their advantage in the second half with six unanswered points, two from Darran O’Sullivan, one from Stephen O’Brien, and two frees from Bryan Sheehan and another free from Alan Fitzgerald.

Substitute Ryan Mallon scored Down’s last point on 63 minutes, and from then it was all Kerry, as Brendan O’Sullivan (2), Barry John Keane (3) and substitute Colm Cooper scored another six points without reply.
