Fermanagh 0-10 1-7 Derry

Ciaran McElroy was the Fermanagh hero at Brewster Park

A superb late point from Ciaran McElroy earned Fermanagh a draw in the Gaelic Life McKenna Cup clash in Enniskillen.

The Ernemen were 0-5 to 0-1 ahead at the break and were five points in front with nine minutes left.

But Derry hit 1-3 in the space of four minutes, with Joe Diver netting, to take the lead for the first time.

McElroy salvaged a draw in the cup opener which saw two Derry players and one from UUJ sent-off and replaced under the new yellow card rule.

Oak Leaf duo Niall Bradley and Patsy Bradley were dismissed in the first half while Michael Jones was ordered off in the dying minutes.

Fermanagh debutant Seamus Ryder and Enda Ferris each slotted over two points in the opening half, with Ryan Carson getting the other for the homeside.

Pat Cadden added another three points for the Erne side in the second half but Derry's six answered points in quick time turned the game with Diver scoring his goal on 67 minutes.
