Armagh 8-14 Cavan 2-7
Armagh eased into their fourth Ulster final in a row with a convincing win over Cavan in Clones on Sunday.
The Orchard Ladies are in line for their fourth title on the trot, confirming their position as the best team in the province.
They’ll take on Donegal in the decider and a tougher test will be expected. But in terms of their clash with Cavan, as the old saying goes, you can only beat what’s in front of you.
By the time the Breffni Blues got off the mark, Armagh, led as always by Aimee Mackin, were 11-points up.
Mackin, who finished with 3-7 to her name, kick started Armagh’s charge with a quick fire 1-1 in the early minutes.
The Shane O’Neill’s sharpshooter then turned provider, setting up Kelly Mallon for Armagh’s second goal.
Mackin slotted over her second point, from a free, before extending her personal haul with another three-pointer.
Cavan eventually responded, with Aisling Gilsenan grabbing a Cavan goal to narrow the gap slightly.
But Armagh powered on with three more goals before the break. Blaithin Mackin, Niamh Coleman and Aimee Mackin all rattled the net.
Aimee Mackin and Mallon split the posts, while Cavan hit a second goal, this time from Aisling Sheridan.
Cavan hit three-points before the end of the half to leave 15-points the difference at the break. Armagh ahead 6-6 to 2-3.
Catherine Marley and Kelly Mallon, who hit 1-1 from frees, stretched Armagh’s advantage even further after the break.
Marley added her second score while Mallon, who ended the game with 2-4, raised the final green flags of the day.
It’s Armagh’s tenth successive win this season and the Orchard Ladies look simply unstoppable at the minute.
All eyes will now be on Donegal in two weeks’ time, where they’ll return to Clones in the hopes of retaining their title.
