Armagh won their first TG4 Ulster championship match (2-14 to 1-14) since claiming the Ulster title in 2014, and reached this season's final at the expense of Cavan.

Two goals in the space of a minute, with Cavan down to 14 players, proved crucial in a pulsating Ulster semi-final in the Inniskeen sunshine.

Kelly Mallon and Aimee Mackin hit the net in quick succession late on and the Orchard crew consolidated strongly to leave Cavan, who kicked the last three scores of the evening, with too much to do.

It had looked like Armagh might come to rue several missed goal chances in the opening period as they went in at the break trailing by four points.

But a flying start to the second-half saw them score five times in the first six minutes to go ahead again and they later took full advantage of a Cavan sin-binning.

Corner-back Joanne Moore was shown yellow for a blatant foul on Armagh's magnificent midfielder Caroline O'Hanlon. Although Cavan registered the next two scores, they were six behind when the bin was up and a ferociously committed Armagh held out in a tense finale.

Aimee Mackin top-scored for Armagh for the ninth time in nine games this season, but only with a relatively modest 1-4, as Mallon, O'Hanlon, Lauren McConville and Tiarna Grimes all chipped in.

From young Grimes and another teenager returning from injury, sub Blaithin Mackin, to veteran captain Caoimhe Morgan, Armagh had significant contributions all over the field.

Scorers - Armagh: A Mackin 1-4; K Mallon 1-2 (1f); C O'Hanlon 0-4 (2f); T Grimes, L McConville 0-2 each.

Cavan: A Maguire 0-6 (3f); D English 0-4; B Farrelly-McGee 1-0; B Sheridan, A Sheridan 0-2 each.

Armagh - C O'Hare; S Marley, C Morgan (capt), S Reel; M Tennyson, T Grimes, M McGuinness; C McCambridge, C O'Hanlon; M Moriarty, F McKenna, L McConville, A Mackin, A McCoy, K Mallon. Subs: B Mackin for McKenna (39), S Grey for McGuinness (53).

Cavan - E Baugh; R Doonan, L Fitzpatrick, J Moore; S Greene (capt), N Byrd, S O'Sullivan; C Dolan, D English; G McGlade, B Sheridan, B Farrelly-McGee; A Sheridan, A Maguire, C Smith. Subs: S McKenna for Smith (47), A Comyn for Farrelly-McGee (52), A O'Reilly for B Sheridan (56).
