Football League: Wexford 0-6 0-13 Cavan

David Givney

Cavan continued their winning start to their Division Three campaign with a victory over Wexford at O'Kennedy Park.

The Breffni men led 0-8 to 0-3 at half-time and extended that advantage to 0-12 to 0-3 before Wexford's Adrian Flynn was sent-off for a second yellow card.

Points from Kevin O'Grady and Cillian Kehoe reduced their side's deficit to six points but a Niall Murray point restored a seven-point cushion.

Terry Hyland's men face Sligo at Breffni Park next Sunday.

Points from Martin Dunne, Cian Mackey and Niall McDermott got the visitors off to a flying start and after Wexford registered their first point, David Givney and McDermott added further points for Cavan.

Ben Brosnan with a free and Colm Kehoe replied with scores for Wexford, but Mackey and McDermott replied, and then Wexford's Daithi Waters received a black card.

A Damien O'Reilly point made it 0-8 to 0-3 to the Ulster county at half-time.

Further scores from Givney (2), Michael Argue and Martin Dunne from close range extended Cavan's lead, and any lingering hopes of a comeback Wexford may have harboured ended with the dismissal of Flynn.

Cavan had beaten Fermanagh and Offaly in their opening two matches.
