Marren kept Sligo in touch but they were well beaten, 1-12 to 0-07.

Wicklow scored an injury-time goal against Roscommon to take a first point of the Division 3 campaign in a 0-13 to 1-10 scoreline.

Conor McGraynor scored three points with Jacko Dalton scoring the goal.

Roscommon had led 0-13 to 0-10 with just minutes remaining until the late goal secured a point for the Garden County.
