Meath kept their promotion hopes alive, while both other matches ended in draws in Allianz Football Division 3 today.


Sligo 2-9 Cavan 1-12
Sligo and Cavan shared the points at Markievicz Park today. SligO were leading by five points coming into the closing stages of the match, after a Shane McManus goal had helped them to a 1-05 to 0-06 half time lead.

Cavan midfielder Gearoid McKiernan struck over two points to level matters after the restart, but a Stephen Gilmartin goal helped Sligo back in control.

And with the game seemingly safe, two converted frees by Barry Reilly and a last-gasp goal from Eugene Keating earned an unlikely point for the visitors.

Roscommon 0-12 Meath 2-11
Meath still harbour outside hopes of promotion following this victory in Dr Hyde Park.

Mick O’Dowd’s side put themselves on the way to victory with a first half that saw them leading by 2-06 to 0-03 at the intervaL - Kevin Reilly and Graham Reilly getting the Royal goals.

Roscommon began the first half with a Kevin Higgins point but then lost Donie Shine to injury. Roscommon did manage to reduce the gap to five points before a Cian Ward point settled Meath, who now look forward to Sligo at Pairc Tailteann next Saturday.

Wicklow 2-7 Antrim 1-10
Wicklow had three men sent off, while Antrim had one during this draw in Aughrim.

The first half ended 0-4 each, while Anto McLoughlin levelled matters late on for the Garden County.
