Malone to the fore in Farney blitz

Monaghan sealed a place in the last four by asserting their authority with an unanswered 1-6 second-half salvo at Inniskeen.

The students led 0-5 to 0-4 at the break, but the hosts made a number of changes and blew the students away with that decisive blitz, Dermot Malone getting the goal.
