Cavan and Tipperary are looking forward to meeting each other at Croke Park in the Division Four final after they both secured promotion on Saturday evening.
Carlow and Wexford cancelled each other out in the early throw-in and it now means tomorrow’s game between Sligo and Leitrim is a dead-rubber after Tipperary’s win slammed the promotion door in the two sides faces.
Carlow 0-14 Wexford 1-11
A last gasp free from Mark Rossiter rescued a point for Wexford as the two sides drew as they ended their underwhelming league campaigns.
Wexford hit the ground running in this one and took charge early and built a steady three point lead before Carlow got on the board.
Darragh Foley and Jamie Clarke were yet again doing the business for Carlow but Sean Ryan came off the bench to get the Wexford goal and put The Yellowbellies into the lead only for Carlow to hit back and take the lead before Rossiter rescued the game for the visitors.
Cavan 3-21 Waterford 0-10
Cavan secured their return to Division Three with a ruthless win over Waterford on Saturday evening.
Cavan knew what they had to do and they did it in style.
Thomas Galligan got the promotion party going and Waterford could have had a goal themselves but David Hallihan drilled his effort wide.
Cavan we’re nine points up at the break and Waterford never got within touching distance of the table-toppers and Cavan wrapped up the win and promotion with two late goals Caoimhín O’Reilly and Gearóid McKiernan both scored world class goals and put the icing on the promotion cake.
Tipperary 1-14 London 0-12
Tipperary are also looking forward to A Division Four final date at HQ and live in Division Three after the overcame a tough London side.
As mentioned in this weekend’s preview London weren’t just going to roll over for the hosts and gift them promotion on a plate.
Tipperary started the brightest in both half’s and that was London’s downfall. In all honesty the last three defeats are almost carbon copies as all apart from the Sligo game were narrow defeats.
Mark Russell got the Tipp goal after 21 minutes but London’s engine started to purr after they went eight points down.
Chris Farley and Liam Gavaghan got the Londoners in some sort of rhythm.
Matthew Walsh and Conal Gallagher added to London’s tally as the visitors went into the break five points down.
In the second-half London sensed some Tipperary edginess but failed to capitalise when they had to golden goal chances. Stephen Dornan had to settle for a point when his shot blazed over while Gavaghan was denied by a fine save by Michael
Conor Sweeney, Sean O’Connor and Stephen Quirke all got vital scores to make sure of the win and wrapped up promotion.
