Erne Wanderers . . . . . . . . . . . 1

Paddy McGowan (2), Gareth Temple, Lee McMonagle and Conor Temple scored the goals for Bonagee while David Dolan scored a late consolation goal for the Wanderers.

Gareth Temple hit the first on 14 minutes when he raced onto a Shane Kelly strike from out wide on the the right to open the locals’ account.

And Paddy McGowan scored the second from a free just outside the box and on the right hand side.

That was on 41 minutes and sent Bonagee in 2-0 in front at the end of an opening half they had just about shaded the possession stakes.

Erne Wanderers started well and also had a good ten minute spell before McGowan struck for goal number two.

And Erne started the second half well, too, and it took a brilliant save from John Carr to deny Eamonn McGrath from five metres, in the opening seconds of the second period.

Alan Dorrian’s side penned the locals back before being caught on the break when Conor Temple stroked home goal number three, seven minutes into the new half.

Lee McMonagle added the fourth on 53 minutes after being sent clear by Shane Kelly and Paddy McGowan wrapped up the scoring for Damien McClafferty’s men on 70 minutes when he cheekily chipped into the top left corner from just outside the box.

David Dolan, who had a half chance of a goal in the first half, scored a consolation goal for the Ernesiders ten minutes from the end.

Dolan, who was one of the visitors’ better performers, showed good control in the box to slide the ball past Carr.
