Kieran McGeeney’s men overturned a four-point deficit to rout Wexford.

DESPITE GOING BEHIND by four points early on against Wexford, Kieran McGeeney’s Armagh side turned the game around completely to run out 2-13 to 1-08 winners away from home.

The home side opened up a 0-04 to 0-00 lead that included two points from Adrian Flynn but Armagh hit back with a goal from Ethan Rafferty right on half time to take a 1-05 to 0-04 advantage in at the break.

The second half followed a similar pattern as Armagh kicked the first four scores before Kevin O’Grady responded with a goal for Wexford. However, that was as good as it got for the home side as a late goal from Ciaron O’Hanlon saw Armagh ease to an eight point win.

Elsewhere in Division Three, Tipperary excelled at both ends of the pitch to beat Limerick by 1-14 to 1-02. Remarkably, the home side didn’t concede a single score in the first half as they led 0-08 to 0-00 at the break before pulling away even more in the second 35.

Louth also recorded a win in Division Three today, dispatching Clare by 1-16 to 0-13 with a powerful second half display. Despite a goal by Adrian Reid Louth trailed by 1-05 to 0-09 at half time. However a dogged second half display saw them only concede a further four scores as they ran out six point winners.

In the final game in Division Three, Fermanagh held on to record a tight 0-14 to 0-12 win away to Sligo. The game went back and forth as both sides kicked some lovely scores and the visitors lead 0-08 to 0-06 at half time.

Fermanagh led by four for the majority of the second half and despite a late Sligo fightback, the home side came up short.

Fermanagh now top Division Three with four points while Armagh are in second, also on four but with inferior points difference. They are the two only sides with a 100% record in Division Three after two weeks.
