KILDARE ENDED THEIR Division 2 losing streak tonight as they came away with a five-point win from Kingspan Breffni Park against home side Cavan.

The good news continued for Jason Ryan’s side as Daniel Flynn fired home their second goal to mark his first start for the county since July 2013 after a spell with AFL club Port Adelaide.

Eoghan O’Flaherty bagged the first-half goal for a Kildare team that trailed at the break by 0-8 to 1-4. The first-half saw Fionn Dowling miss a penalty for Kildare while Cavan were left reeling from the sending-off of Damien O’Reilly.

Kildare were also reduced to 14 men during the second-half when David Hyland was dismissed. But before that the Lilywhies had made a strong burst and had moved 1-12 to 0-12 ahead with ten minutes left before Flynn grabbed the second goal that sealed their success.

Scorers for Kildare: Eoghan O’Flaherty 1-4 (0-4f), Daniel Flynn 1-1, Paul Cribben, Niall Kelly, Fionn Dowling 0-2 each, Ollie Lyons, Fionn Dowling 0-1 each.

Scorers for Cavan:  Niall McDermott 0-6 (0-6f), Gearoid McKiernan, Martin Reilly (0-2f, 0-1 ’45) 0-3 each, Dara McVeety, Cian Mackey 0-1 each.
