Reserve Championship Final

 

 

Cross V Armagh Harps

A bright sunny afternoon in Armagh left conditions ideal for the Reserve Championship Final. We were quick out of the blocks, 1-2 scored in the opening minutes, (Ryan Conlon 1-1 & Pearse Blessing 1). Harps opening scores came in the tenth minute when they converted a free and a point from play to get them off the mark. Just before the end of the first quarter, we had  registered our second goal, thanks to Pearse Blessing. Ryan Conlon hit a super long range point to extend our lead. Harps reduced the deficit when they scored a goal. The second quarter, was a high scoring affair, 1-5 (Ryan Conlon 1,  James C 1-1, Pearse Blessing 1, Shane Gallagher 1, Damian Hamill 1) to 0-4 for Harps.

Cross 3-8 Armagh Harps 1-6

The third quarter was evenly matched, three points a piece (James C 1, Fiddler 1 & James Teelan 1). Points from Diarmud McConville and Ronan Finnegan stretched our lead. Harps scored a point from play which was matched by James Teelan. As the clock ticked down, a number of injuries meant there would be six minutes of extra time. Ronan Finnegan scored our last score with a fantastic point from play. Harps got the last score of the game, a point.

Armagh SFL

Dromintee V Cross

The home side got the scoring underway, with a point registered from play, when the game was just seconds old. Our opening score followed soon after, Jamie Clarke the scorer. All indications at this early stage, was that this was going be a fast moving and tough encounter. A super pass from number eleven, Callum Cumiskey, to Thomas Og Duffy who hit a rasper of a shot which ended up in the dromintee net to give us an early lead. We won the dromintee kick out, worked the ball well down the field to Seannie McConville who kicked the ball into the home-side net to extend our lead and register our second goal. Jamie scored his second point and with the game approaching the end of the first quarter, we had a steady lead. Dromintee scored two long range points one after the other to reduce our lead to four as we entered the second quarter. A super save from Conor Deery denied Dromintee a goal which would of saw our lead brought down to the bare minimum. We had a number of missed opportunities. The final quarter saw Dromintee score four points, (1F), we scored three, Seanie, Jamie (F) & Aaron to leave the score at the midway point;

Dromintee 0-7 Cross 2-5

Dromintee began the second half as they had the first, a score in the opening seconds, a free converted.  Their second score of the half, a point,  followed shortly after, now just two was the difference. Our opening score of the half came in the eleventh minute, a goal from the boot of Jamie Clarke to reinstate our comfortable lead. Two points apiece for each team, a fantastic strike from Dara O’Callaghan and Jamie (F) and the difference was still five as the minutes ticked down on the clock. We finished strongly, three answered points, Dara (2) & Jamie to put the game firmly out of Dromintees reach. Just as normal time was up, Dromintee scored a point from a free and the last score of the match, in injury time, Dromintee slotted over a point from play.

Dromintee  0-13  Cross 3-10

Thanks to match ball sponsor, David, Food At Events.

Armagh Reserve Championship QF

Shane O’Neills V Cross

All roads led to Camlough on Saturday evening for the Reserve Championship QF game against Shane O’Neills. Not long after Damian Shields threw the ball in, Shane Gallagher got our opening score, a point from play. It took the homeside near ten minutes to get their opening score, a point from a free to level matters. They took the lead when they added a point to their tally but this lead was to be short lived, Bernard Cassidy hit a super strike which sailed over. Just as the first quarter drew to a close, Shane’s edged in front. The second quarter was a different affair, we took control of the game, six points without reply, Darren McDonnell (2), Stephen Finnegan (1,F) James Coyle (1), Bernard Cassidy (1) and Pearse Blessing (1) to leave the score at the mid way point;

Shane O’Neill 0-3  Cross 0-8

The second half started as the first half had, we had a point registered in the opening seconds, Liam Finnegan the scorer. We had a number of missed opportunities in the minutes that followed. Substitute, Shane Morgan wasn’t long on the field when he  got his name on the scoresheet, a point,  to stretch our lead. Shanes reduced the deficit when they scored two points one after the other, (1,f). The final quarter of the game our lead was never threatened, we scored 2-6, to 1-2, Shane Morgan, (1-1), Darren McDonnell, (1), Odhran Caraher, (1),  Daniel Cumiskey, (2), Ronan Finnegan, (1-1). Shane O’Neill’s scores, two points as normal time approached and a goal in injury time.

Reserve Championship Rd 1

Cross V Madden 

 

 

Following our win on Wednesday night against Pearse Ogs in the preliminary round of the Reserve championship, we welcomed Madden to Cross for the first round clash. Tony O’Hare was the man in charge. The first half was a low scoring affair, all scores coming from play. Points for Ronan Finnegan (2) James Coyle and Ryan Conlon, the visitors slotted over 2 points.

Cross 0-4 Madden 0-2

Madden got off to a dream start as play resumed, a goal in the opening minutes and for the first time in the match, they had the lead but only for a short time, Stephen Fiddler Finnegan converted a free to level matters. Both sides traded points, ours coming from the boot of Shane Gallagher. Both sides had missed chances and as the game entered the last quarter, Fiddler hit a super strike which sailed over to edge us in front once more. Madden converted a free and with minutes remaining the sides could not be separated. Just as the clock hit normal time, Madden got a point from play to give them the advantage before substitute, James Teelan got the equaliser to send the game into extra time.

Cross 0-8 madden 1-5

The start of extra time replicated the start of the second half, Madden had the ball in our net and they now had an early lead, a significant lead as legs were tiring. A Bernard Cassidy point just before the break, brought it back to a two point game.

Cross 0-9 Madden 2-5

The second period of extra time was exciting stuff, Ryan Conlon brought it down to the narrowest of margins at the start of play. James Teelan for the second time in the match got the equaliser.  A few tense minutes passed but the final whistle blew and the sides were even stevens! In games of old, a replay would be called but that is not how things are in the modern game, a repeat of Croke Park in St Oliver Plunkett Park, Penalties!

Cr0ss 0-11 Madden 2-5

Madden were first up, converting their first penalty. James for the third time levelled matters, when he struck his penalty well. Madden’s second,  a super save from Conor.  Ryan Conlon scored our second. Maddens third was saved again. James Coyle registered our third. Madden converted their fourth as did Cheesy, to a rapturous applause! We  now proceed to the QF. The  draw to see who our opponents are, will take place on Tuesday night.

Penalties; Madden 2  Cross 4

Cross 4-11  Madden 4-5

Well done lads and management on a super win, hard luck Madden.

Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 27/06/22

 

Well Done

Despite a gallant effort by Armagh, in an epic battle against Galway, it  just wasn’t enough to book a place in the All Ireland SF. We are so proud of Rian, James, Oisin, Cian and the entire team, their hard work and commitment all year was outstanding and we have no doubt they will back stronger. Hopefully the current situation of a penalty shoot out to decide a winner will be changed in the near future.

Congratulations to Lauren, Alex, Aveen, Caoimhe, Megan and Armagh LGFA team and management who on Saturday, had a comprehensive win over Monaghan to qualify for the last eight of the TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship.

Also, well done  to Armagh Camogie who had a two point win against Antrim in the All Ireland Junior Championship, a semi final awaits them.
