Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Sport - BY COILIN DUFFY

A LATE Donal O’Hare point saw Down take top-spot in Divi­sion Three of the Al­lianz League and deny Car­low a chance of pro­mo­tion.

A 67th minute Eoghan Ruth goal lev­elled the game be­fore Caolan Mooney and Der­mot Walsh swapped scores in in­jury-time.

How­ever, O’Hare’s (right) score en­sured Down’s fifth win on the bounce, with a 0-15 to 1-11 vic­tory.

Sec­ond half goals from Evan O’Car­roll and Paul Cahillane kept Laois’s chance of pro­mo­tion and a fi­nal place alive, with a 2-12 to 0-15 win over Of­faly at Bord na Mona O’Con­nor Park.

Of­faly led by 0-8 to 0-5 at the break, but Laois turned the ta­bles on the restart.

Long­ford held Sligo to just three sec­ond half points, as they claimed a 2-15 to 0-14 win over Sligo at Pearse Park.

Ten play­ers were on tar­get for the hosts, in­clud­ing Dar­ren Gal­lagher and sub­sti­tute Nigel Rab­bitt who found the net in the sec­ond half.

Louth v West­meath was post­poned due to weather con­di­tions.
