Monaghan were 1-8 to 1-6 up at the end of a competitive first half, but they pulled away with ten unanswered points after the restart. Conor McManus led 13 Monaghan scorers with 1-3, while their bench made an impact in their second-half surge, particularly Owen Duffy, who weighed in with three points from play.
