A late Cavan fight back fell just short as Armagh recorded a two point win over Cavan in the opening Philly McGuinness Cup U20 Development League meeting.
Armagh won out the high scoring contest 3-13 to 2-18 having led 1-10 to 2-4 at half-time. Cavan’s first half scores from Emmett Boylan 0-2, James Brady 1-0, Thomas Smith 0-1 and Peter Smith 1-1.
Emmet Boylan opened the second-half with a goal for Cavan to level the scores. Boylan drew the side’s level minutes later with a point, before Armagh put clear water between the sides.
Boylan sent over three second-half points with scores from Peter Smith 0-2, Bradon Boylan 0-2 and James Brady 0-1 not enough to prevent the Armagh victory.
