St Pat's Cavan 1-10
St Michael's Enniskillen 0-10
An injury-time goal from midfielder Thomas Galligan and a late insurance point from Mattie McKenna saw St Pat's snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in their MacRory Cup quarter-final against St Michael's, Enniskillen today in Clones.
The Cavan boys began well and were 0-2 to 0-0 ahead, with Ryan Connolly sending over one beauty of a point from long-range.
Enniskillen hung in there though and trailed by just a point, 0-5 to 0-4, at half-time.
St Pat's, with Caoímhín O'Reilly, Cian McManus, David Brady and Thomas Galligan to the fore, looked set to pull away when they stretched their lead to 0-7 to 0-4, with points from Greg McGovern and 15-year-old Thomas Edward Donohoe.
However, with Lee Brennan and Eoin McManus exerting a lot of influence, Enniskillen rallied and edged in front by 0-10 to 0-9 as the match entered injury time.
A tremendous surge from the outstanding Cian McManus - a cousin of his St Michael's namesake - saw Enniskillen goalkeeper Colin Copeland save brilliantly but Galligan was on hand to tap home from close range to break the Fermanagh sides's hearts.
Cavan started without county minor forwards Ben Conaty, Darragh Gannon and Pierce Smith, with the latter coming on in the second half of what was a very intense battle.
