Sheridan keeps Fingal on promotion push

23 Mar 2013 |


JM Sheridan hit nine points as Fingal kept their promotion hopes alive in the Allianz HL Division 3A at Croke Park on Saturday night.
Sheridan shot 0-6 in the first half and it was a point effort from him that led to David Smyth’s seventh minute goal.
Fermanagh were creating chances, though, and Brendan McGarry, John Duffy and a Seán Corrigan scores kept them in touch, before Corrigan flicked a sideline to the net to put the Erne County 1-3 to 1-2 up on 19 minutes.
Then Sheridan caught fire and over the following 15 minutes hit five points but Fermanagh went in just three behind at the break.
Fingal looked like pulling away after the break but Porteous bundled in a 46th-minute goal to make it 1-10 to 2-6.
The final quarter was nip and tuck as a Corrigan free levelled it on the hour but the pacy Dean Flood and Peter Daly pushed Fingal ahead late on, before Sheridan and then Smyth had the final say.
