Cavan edge out Armagh in Ulster Minor Football opener

Niall Clerkin battles with Conor Martin in the minor clash at Breffni Park

A last-gasp point from sub Brian O'Connell earned Cavan a 0-13 to 1-9 win over Armagh in Sunday's opening Ulster Minor Football Championship tie.

Two Ryan Connolly points helped Cavan lead 0-3 to 0-1 early on but Joseph McElroy's goal enabled Armagh to edge 1-5 to 0-7 ahead by the interval.

The lead changed hands on a number of occasions in the second half before two Eoin Burns points edged Armagh ahead.

However, Cavan levelled before O'Connell's injury-time fisted winner.
