12 points from Hugh Byrne were central to Monaghan's narrow HL3A success over Louth in Aughnamullen.

The Farney County trailed by 0-4 to 1-6 at the halfway stage following Gerard Smith's goal for Louth but stuck gamely to their task after the resumption with Byrne pointing the way.

The left half-forward sent over two '65s' in injury-time to seal the two points for the home side.
