Flyin' Ryan rises above it all with a Ferm and final word.
FERMANAGH 1-13 CAVAN 0-13 GOAL hero Ryan Carson rose above the mediocre at Breffni Park with a moment of genius to book Fermanagh's Ulster SFC semi-final place.
The full-forward topscored with 1-3 but it was his goal six minutes from time that decided a dour game in front of 9,677.
Moments earlier Cavan had levelled the scores for the fourth time in the half when midfielder David Givney pointed.
But when Carson pulled a high ball out of the sky, escaped debutant Eoin McGuigan and shot to the net, it was all over.
Just for good measure, super-sub Seamus Quigley slotted over his second point for Fermanagh soon after to seal victory.
It was revenge for last year's defeat to Cavan - though they've got plenty to improve upon ahead of a June 27 clash here at Breffni with Monaghan.
Both sides were full of energy but there was little efficiency on show, with Fermanagh midfielder Marty McGrath and Cavan forward Gareth Smith providing rare moments of excitement.
Cavan edged the first half 0-8 to 0-7 but will kick themselves for hitting eight wides and wasting a couple of goal chances.
They might have led by two at half-time but Seanie Johnstone had a free in taken off him for taking too long.
The sides were level at 0-9 before Fermanagh seized the initiative, moving 0-12 to 0-10 ahead with three points in a row from Rory Gallagher, Carson and Quigley.
Cavan fought hard with points from Smith and Givney - but just as they tried to push on, they were rocked by Carson's match-winning goal for Fermanagh.
MAGIC MOMENT: Carson
