Niall McDermott struck five points as Cavan, with Tomas Corr effective, led by 0-11 to 0-4 at half-time.

Lorcan Mulvey impressed for London after the restart, but Cavan goals from McKiernan and Dara McVeety sealed the deal.

In stoppage time London's Cathal Og Greene was sent off for a second bookable offence as Cavan ran out convincing winners.
