Dr McKenna Cup

CAVAN 0-13 DOWN 1-9

DONEGAL 0-21 QUEENS 0-11

Conor Madden struck the last score of the game as Cavan finished strongly to defeat Down at Kingspan Breffni.

A tight first half ended with the teams departing level at 0-6 each.

Cavan goalkeeper Raymond Galligan landed a couple of lange range frees as Mickey Graham's outfit responded following some early difficulties.

Galligan added a third point in the second period as Cavan edged five clear before a goal from a Pat Havern penalty gave Down hope.

Conor McGrady clipped a levelling point, but Madden supplied the decisive score in the closing stages.

Donegal were always in control against Queens University.

Prompted by the impressive Ciaran Thompson Donegal claimed a commanding victory.
