Leanne Donnelly landed five of the Armagh side's points with their other score coming from Catherine Muldoon.

St Ronan's, Lurgan and St Patrick's, Maghera have made it into the semi-finals of the Ulster Colleges MacRory Cup following wins over Patrician HS, Carrickmacross and St Michael's, Enniskillen.
