Armagh 8-13
Leitrim 0-10

ARMAGH RAN RIOT in their All-Ireland SFC second round qualifier in Carrick-on-Shannon.

The Orchard County, who started with the same team which disposed of Wicklow, began strongly in front of 4,371 at Sean McDermott Park and scored 1-2 before Leitrim got their first point of the day.

Armagh’s class in attack shone through early on and a second goal from Eugene McVerry plus one each from Kevin Dyas and Tony Kernan meant they held a 16-point advantage at the interval.

McVerry bagged his hat-trick soon after the restart while Jamie Clarke, who was superb throughout, found the back of the net twice as Paul Grimley’s men eased to victory.

They will discover who their opponents will be in the next round in Monday’s draw.

LEITRIM: C McCrann, F McMorrow, C Egan, S McWeeney, D Beck, G Reynolds, B Prior, D Sweeney, B Brennnan, P McGowan, J Glancy, P Brennan, A Croal, R Lowe, K Conlon.

ARMAGH: P McEvoy, P McKeown, B Donaghy, Js Morgan, A Kernan, C McKeever, M Shields, J Lavery, S Harold, C Rafferty, K Dyas, E Rafferty, J Clarke, T Kernan, E McVerry.
