Saturday's Allianz FL D3 and D4 round-up
Allianz Football League Division Three
ARMAGH 1-15 DERRY 0-14
OFFALY 1-13 WEXFORD 1-10
Andrew Murnins goal helped leaders Armagh to another victory in Division 3 of the Allianz League and they now look primed for promotion after a success against Derryon Saturdayevening.
Kieran McGeeneys side made it five wins from five outings at the Athletic Grounds.
Armagh trailed by 0-8 to 1-4 at half-time, but they fought back in the second-half and showed massive determination to move closer to the second tier.
Murnins goal arrived in the 17th minute when he was sharpest to latch onto a rebound off the post, and finish to the Derry net. But Derry were the dominant side before half-time and Emmett Bradley scored a free to send them in with a one-point lead at the interval.
On the resumption Niall Rowland and Murnin scored crucial points to give Armagh an advantage. A Rory Grugan free gave them a five-point lead as the hosts took over heading into the closing stages, and Derry could not find an adequate response. They remain in real trouble at the bottom of the standings.
Meanwhile, Cian Donohue scored the crucial goal for relegation-threatened Offaly as they secured their first points of Division 3 with a 1-13 to 1-10 win overWexford at Enniscorthy.
It was a big step towards survival for an Offaly side who bounced back from a six-point defeat at the hands of Armagh last time out. They host Sligonext Sunday.
For Wexford they look in real trouble, and are bottom of the standings with two rounds remaining. They trailed by 1-5 to 0-3 at half-time in St Patricks Park.
Eoghan Nolan and Ben Brosnan scored early points for Wexford, but Offaly kept their composure and in the 29th minute Donohue scored their goal.
Offaly were five clear at the interval and Barry OConnor made an impact off the bench for Wexford after half-time.
But Nigel Dunne finished with eight points and Nick Doyles goal, three minutes from time, was only a consolation for Wexford.
Paul Broderick is a key figure for Carlow.
Allianz Football League Division Four
CARLOW 1-17 WICKLOW 0-12
LIMERICK 2-10 WATERFORD 2-9
Paul Broderick continued his impressive start to the season as he scored 1-7 for Carlow and their promotion march continued with a 1-17 to 0-12 win over Wicklow at Dr Cullen Park.
Carlow are top of Division 4 in the Allianz League after they backed up their three-point win over Waterford last time out.
Turlough OBriens side only led by 1-8 to 0-7 at half-time, but they were far too strong in the second-half, and their visitors remain on just two points.
Wicklow secured draws against Waterford and Antrim previously and they conceded a crucial goal in the 21st minute here.
Darren Hayden and Sean Murphy had traded scores, before there was a mix-up from the resultant kick out and Broderick finished to the empty net.
That gave Carlow a 1-6 to 0-4 lead coming up to half-time. Wicklow reduced the arrears before the interval, but it was just a brief reprieve.
Broderick scored his final point in the 57th minute and at that stage Carlow were 1-16 to 0-9 in front. And despite a couple of Mark Jackson efforts late on, Wicklow suffered their third defeat.
They host Limerick next time out, while Carlow need to keep on winning away to Antrim.
Limerick finally got their first win of the season at home in Martinstown when they beat Waterford 2-10 to 2-9 thanks to goals from Jamie Lee and substitute Shane Cusack.
Limericks only points up to this stage were secured in a 2-8 to 2-8 draw in London, while Waterford drew away to Wicklow in the opening round.
Lee scored his goal early and Limerick raced into a 1-1 to 0-0 lead after six minutes. But Waterford fought back before half-time and Gavin Crotty finished a penalty to the net.
