Armagh Under 21 Paul McGeown, with the help from Eimeid Murray, scored two points, and landed the ball in the back of the net after being awarded a penalty. Thomas McAlinden and Chris McGaughey added two more goals late in the second half to give Sarsfields a comfortable victory with final score Sarsfields 3-13 Tir na nOg 0-9.
