Meath too strong for Fingal

Referee consults about Meath point.

The outcome was predictable after only 60 seconds as Meath hit 1-1 and laid the foundations for a comprehensive 5-22 to 1-7 NHL Div 2B victory over a Fingal at Trim today.

This was a Fingal side that seven days earlier won their first game in the grade against Armagh.

Meath were ahead by 2-13 to 1-2 at the interval and continued to clock up the scores in pursuit of a healthy scoring difference for a thoroughly merited 27-point winning margin at the end of a fiercely contested 70 minutes.

The referee had to consult with his linesman and umpires after a late Meath point was waved wide, but it was eventually allowed (ss photo).
