Cavan comeback earns a draw with Meath in Breffni Park

In a tense clash at Kingspan Breffni, Cavan staged a remarkable comeback to salvage a draw against Meath, securing a crucial point in their bid to retain their Division 2 status.

Trailing by four points at halftime, Cavan’s prospects seemed bleak, with only three first-half points to their name.

However, a spirited second-half display, highlighted by Paddy Lynch’s four crucial points, saw them surge ahead briefly.

Meath, who had rallied from behind in previous rounds, were unable to secure a victory to bolster their promotion hopes, despite goalkeeper Sean Brennan’s pivotal late equalizer.

The match ended in a deadlock, with both teams squandering chances in stoppage time.

The result likely dashes Meath’s hopes of a top-two finish but leaves both teams relatively secure from relegation threats. With Cavan next facing Armagh away before concluding their campaign against Fermanagh at home, and Meath preparing for a home clash against Cork followed by a trip to Donegal, both sides will be looking to finish the season strongly.
