DONEGAL WILL face Cavan in the Ulster SFC decider after the Breffni booked their first final place since 2001.
Cavan ended an 18-year wait for a place in the final after a 0-23 to 0-17 win over Armagh at Clones this afternoon.
Following a draw last weekend, the two teams went to war again today and Mickey Graham’s Cavan emerged victorious after a cracking contest.
Cavan, who haven’t been to the final since a 1-13 to 1-11 defeat by Tyrone in 2001, hit six of the game’s final seven points to see off the Orchard.
Jamie Clarke – who scored seven points for Armagh – kept them in touch, bu a Conor Moynagh-inspired Cavan saw out the win.
Cavan led 0-11 to 0-8 at half-time with Gearoid McKiernan and Dara McVeety prominent.
They led by seven at one stage, but Stefan Campbell’s introduction sparked Armagh into life.
However, Cavan proved to have too much in their arsenal and they set up a clash with Donegal.Tags:
