Cavan, Armagh, Monaghan and Tyrone still in Super 8 hunt after qualifiers

Tyrone boss Mickey Harte

All-Ireland SFC Qualifying round two: Cavan 1-14 Down 0-15

LUCKLESS Down bowed out of the Championship despite being the better side in Saturday evening’s Brewster Park thriller.

It’s all about the result in the Qualifiers of course and Cavan deserve credit for hanging in there and getting their noses in front at the line, but even their manager Mattie McGleenan admitted that his side “stole it”.

All-Ireland SFC qualifiers round two: Carlow 1-10 Tyrone 3-14

Carlow coach Steven Poacher had promised a ‘bear-pit’ atmosphere but although the hosts led for just over a quarter hour in total, this match was more of a teddy bears’ picnic in the sunshine as Tyrone advanced on a 3-14 to 1-10 scoreline.

All-Ireland SFC qualifiers round two: Sligo 1-13 Armagh 1-19

Perhaps Armagh’s Ulster quarter-final loss to Fermanagh has been finally put to bed.

A reborn Armagh, eventually the stronger side after an initial tit-for-tat encounter with a gutsy Sligo at Markievicz Park on Saturday, have now won two games in the Qualifiers and will be formidable opponents in this morning's third round draw.

All-Ireland SFC qualifiers round two: Waterford 0-9 Monaghan 5-21

The gap in class between Division 1 and Division 4 Allianz League teams was demonstrated clearly in the sweltering heat of Fraher Field, Dungarvan on Saturday where Monaghan showed no mercy to home side Waterford as they put their shock defeat by Fermanagh behind them to come away with a massive 27-point victory.
