The scoring began within a minute as the excellent Damina McElgunn drilled to the net before Conor McAloon added his sides first point after good play from Lawrence McKeown. Ciaran Flanagan was net to register a goal as the young O’Rahilly’s made a bright start to the contest.

Points from Burns and McElgunn set Belcoo on their way again but the visitors were awarded a penalty in the 23rd minute. Cormac McHugh in the Belcoo goals saved the tame spot kick.

Enniskillen would add a second point before the interval but with Matthew Mulvey and Oisin O’Loughlin steady presences in defence the hosts were fit to continue pressing forward and having missed some good chances, Ciaran Flanagan did manage to add to his tally with a late goal and point while Conor McAloon landed two good points from play and Oran McCann grabbed another goal.

Things continued to follow a similar pattern in the second period. Conor McAloon and Oran McCann had kicked early points before McCann bagged his third goal. The hardworking Fiachra McAloon also landed a good score with Conor McAloon also pointing by the 40minute mark.
