Armagh U21 Championship Replay
Tuesday night saw our U21’s play Mullaghbawn in the replay of Armagh U21 Championship.
A bitterly cold and damp Dromintee was the venue.
Mullaghbawn had two points on the board, (1F)before we registered our opening score, a Rían O’Neill point. Four points in quick succession for us followed, Miceal McCabe (2), Daniel Cunningham and a super strike from Rían to put three between the sides at the midway point.
The final minutes of the half saw the opposition score three unanswered points to level matters and as the game entered injury time, Miceal McCabe slotted the ball over  the bar to leave the bare minimum between the sides at the break;
Cross 0-6 Mullaghbawn 0-5

FonaCAB Ulster Minor QF

Cross V Derrygonnelly Harps

Colaiste Feirste was the setting for our fonaCAB Ulster Minor QF clash with Derrygonnelly Harps. The Fermanagh men were quick off the mark, midfielder Ronan McHugh slotting the ball over the bar when the game was only seconds old.
Four scores in quick succession,  a trio for Cian (1,F) and one for James Teelan put us ahead by three with ten gone on the clock.
Some super catches from Shane Morgan ensured the ball was in plenty of supply for our forwards. Three more points from us, James and two for Cían (1,F) meant at the midway point of the first half we had a comfortable lead. Derrygonnelly responded with three unanswered points to reduce the deficit. Both sides had a number of missed opportunities as the half drew to a close and at the halfway point of the match two was the difference between the teams;
Cross 0-7  Derrygonnelly 0-5
We got off to a dream start seconds after the ball had been thrown in to get the second half underway, a super catch from Shane Morgan was placed to Cían who passed to Dara O’Callaghan who fisted the ball into the oppositions net to put us in a commanding position.
As the game entered the last quarter, Derrygonnelly registered a point on the scoreboard but we pushed on, the scores of the match coming in those final minutes, James Teelan (1), Oisín Doyle (3,1F) and Odhran Kieran (1)  helped to secure our lead and we ran out winners on a scoreline of;
Cross 1-12 Derrygonnelly 0-6
Well done to the entire squad and management.
We now play either Ballyholland or Oliver Plunkett’s on the 23rd December.

Ulster SFC Semi Final

Cross V Gaoth Dobhair

A very cold and blustery Healey Park was the setting for our Ulster Senior football Semi Final against Donegal’s, Goath Dobhair.
The opening minutes were an even affair, two points a piece from each side. Johnny Hanratty scored a point to give us a narrow lead before Gaoth Dobhair got their first goal. Rían O’Neill converted a free to bring it back to a one point game.
The Donegal men went on a scoring spree, scoring 1-03.  Kyle scored a point seconds before Goath Dobhair were awarded a penalty which they scored to put them in a commanding position with just minutes left until the break. Those final minutes we scored four unanswered points to leave the score at the break;
Cross 0-09 Gaoth Dobhair 3-05
The start of the second half saw us reduced to fourteen men when Johnny Hanratty was sent off. The opening minutes of the second half saw both sides register two points on the board before Gaoth Dobhair scored their fourth goal to increase and strengthen their lead and to put the game firmly out of our reach, the final quarter saw some fine scores from both sides. It was to be Gaoth Dobhair’s day and they won on a score line of;
Cross 0-16 Gaoth Dobhair 4-11
Hard luck to the entire squad and management. We are so proud of you all.
Congratulations to Gaoth Dobhair.

Ulster AIB Championship QF

 
Cross V Coalisland
 
Having rained for most of the day,  conditions were slippy in the Athletic Grounds on Saturday evening for our Ulster AIB quarter final clash with Tyrone champions, Coalisland.
Johnny McKeever got the opening score of the game in the second minute to get the scoring underway.
Coalisland got two points in quick succession, one from a free to give them a narrow lead with ten gone on the clock.
Three unanswered points from us, Mickey McNamee , Rían O’Neill (‘45) and Stephen Morris put us in front once again in this tense encounter.
Coalisland converted  a free to narrow the gap to the bare minimum before high drama ensued. A second yellow for Coalisland’s  Brian Toner left the Tyrone side down to fourteen players, seconds later they were reduced to thirteen when Eoghan Hampsey recieved a straight red.
Both sides exchanged points, Rían O’Neill our scorer after converting a free and with just minutes remaining in the half one still separated the sides.
As the game entered injury time, Coalisland got the equaliser, the result of a free before Rían O’Neill slotted a free over the bar to leave the score at the break;
Cross 0-6 Coalisland 0-5
