Liam Deegan's opportunist goal helped the visitors surge into a 1-9 to 0-0 lead.

Under-strength Cavan got a lift in the 18th minute when Conor Drumm fired in goal. Two Jamie Rosney points followed, but the Mourne men still coasted to a 3-22 to 1-2 interval lead.

South Down remained on easy street, with further goals from Eoin McGuinness and Deegan.
