Ulster SFC: Monaghan battle past Cavan

June 11th, 2017

Ulster Senior Football Championship Quarter-Final

Monaghan 1-15 Cavan 0-15                                                 11/6/17


Monaghan advanced to the Ulster SFC semi-finals with a hard-earned win away to Cavan on Sunday. Monaghan stayed in touch throughout the first half despite playing against the wind and they moved ahead for the first time on 35 minutes thanks to Owen Duffy’s second of four points, only for Cavan to respond to lead by 0-9 to 0-7 at the interval.

Cavan maintained a narrow lead into the final quarter, with Raymond Galligan making a fine save to deny Jack McCarron, but Monaghan made the breakthrough for the only goal through Conor McManus on 58 minutes. Cavan threatened to score a late equalising goal, particularly when substitute Ryan Connolly rattled the post at the death, but Monaghan held on to set up a clash with Down in Armagh on Saturday, June 24.
