SEANIE JOHNSTON TURNED on the style as Cavan demolished Armagh by 17 points at Kingspan Breffni Park this evening.

The hosts dished out a merciless hiding to their Ulster rivals (3-18 to 0-10) in this Allianz Football League Division 2 clash, with Johnston helping himself to 1-5.

Johnston, who played for Kildare when current Armagh boss Kieran McGeeney was in charge, had posted 1-4 by half-time as Cavan led by 1-11 to 0-5, this despite Armagh grabbing the first three scores of the game.

David Givney scored Cavan’s second goal 16 minutes after half-time and Gearoid McKiernan, who also scored 1-5 for Cavan, grabbed their third.

Meanwhile, table-toppers Tyrone had the Indian sign over Derry again as they claimed a 2-15 to 0-12 victory at Healy Park to preserve their 100 per cent record in Division 2.

Derry had Chrissy McKaigue sent off for two bookable offences and the Oak Leafers also lost McKaigue’s brother Karl to a black card.

Tyrone had built up a 0-10 to 0-6 lead by half-time before Sean Cavanagh put the result beyond doubt with a goal 20 minutes from time.

Aidan McCrory roared forward for Tyrone’s second goal deep in stoppage time to cap another satisfactory evening for boss Mickey Harte.
