Ulster SFC: Armagh survive Down scare to reach provincial final

Armagh survived a major scare from Down to advance to the Ulster Championship final for the second year in a row winning by 0-13 to 2-6 at Clones.

Jason Duffy kicked the winner for Armagh in the third minute of stoppage time with Down missing a difficult late free to take the game to extra-time.

The sides were level at 1-2 to 0-5 after a bad-tempered first half with Ceilum Doherty goaling for Down.

Ryan Magill’s 47th minute goal had Down sensing an upset, but Armagh’s bench saved the day with the last three scores.

After Oisin O’Neill’s free, Aidan Nugent nailed an equaliser with three minutes to go and Duffy stepped up to land the crucial winner in the 73rd minute.

Armagh will play either Donegal or Tyrone in the Ulster Final on May 12 at Clones.
