A late goal from Conor Madded helped Cavan topple Donegal, 1-13 to 0-12 in the Ulster final for their first Anglo-Celt Cup triumph since 1997, in a mind-blowing day of shock results in the championship

Remarkably, 100 years after a historic year for the GAA and the 100th anniversary of Bloody Sunday weekend, Cavan’s victory means the All-Ireland semi-final will be the same as 1920

Cavan will face Dublin, with Mayo facing Tipperary, after the PM knocked out Cork In the 1920 Championship (which concluded two years later), Tipp beat Dublin in the decider

The upheaval seemed to be on the cards after the opening stops at the Athletic Grounds Unlike their previous three games in the Ulster campaign, Mickey Graham’s side broke blocks to take a 0-5-0 lead -2

However, the reigning champions stabilized and the point doubles from Paddy McBrearty and Niall O’Donnell helped them take a 0-9 to 0-7 lead at halftime

They continued to lead the game in Donegal, trailing just one point in the second half water break

Conor Smith was then given a black card, but the penalty kill didn’t seem to impact his side, as Martin Reilly equalized him in the 60th minute before Gearóid McKiernan put them in the lead.

As the game progressed into the four minutes of extra time, Gearoid McKiernan sent a high ball into Donegal’s place Shaun Patton pushed him back, but only into the hands of Conor Madden who wasn’t wrong

It was a setback that Donegal failed to recover from, and Cavan was keen to end a 23-year wait for provincial glory
