Armagh Senior Football Championship Preliminary Round

Cross V Clan na Gael

 

 

All roads led to the Athletic Grounds on Sunday evening for the preliminary round of the Armagh Cormac Leonard Senior Football Championship. The opening minutes were an even affair, points from Rian and Cian (2) from play, were matched by the Lurgan lads. A Chris Crawley point left the score at the first water break, 0-4 to 0-3. Shortly after play resumed, Clans added a point to their tally to leave the game all square once again but a Stefan Campbell goal quickly followed and give Clans the lead for the first time in the match. Two super long range points from Ronan Fitzpatrick and Rian O’Neill brought it back to a one point game with minutes remaining until the break. Both sides traded points as the half drew to a close to leave the score at the mid way point;

Cross 0-7 Clan na Gael 1-5

We started the second half strong, three points without reply, Rian (2,1,F) and Odhran Kieran edged us in front once more. Clan na Gael responded , two points in quick succession and the sides were even-steven once more in what was an exciting and tense encounter. Points from Cian (2) and Dara give us the lead by three before a Clans point just before the water break brought it back to two

Cross 0-13 Clan na Gael 1-8

Stefan Campbell converted a free but we pushed on with the finishing line in sight, four unanswered points and with five minutes to go we were in a comfortable position but Clan na Gael weren’t finished yet, two points in as many minutes left four the difference as normal time approached. Clans second goal came just as the game entered injury time and all that separated the sides was the bare minumum. Both sides had missed chances but a Cian McConville point just before the full time whistle sealed the victory. Well done lads.

Cross 0-19  Clan na Gael 2-11

We will now play Madden in the QF on Saturday 25th September in the Athletic Grounds at 5pm.

Armagh LGFA SFC Preliminary Round
Dromahill V Cross
Sunday evening our senior ladies travelled to Dromintee to play Dromahill (Dromintee & Forkhill)
Lauren McConville opened the scoring with a point, Dromahill equalised shortly afterwards and a Holly Morgan point give them the lead. Lauren scored her second point from play to equalise the game but this was to be short lived, the home-side scored two points in as many minutes to edge in front once more. The first goal of the contest came in the eighth minute, thanks to Alex Clarke and within seconds, Alex added a point to her tally. Aislinn McMahon scored our second goal but Dromahill replicated this and with thirteen gone on the clock, we were ahead by two. Just before the first water break, Dromahill scored a point from play to leave just one between the sides.
Dromahill 1-5 Cross 2-3
The equaliser came shortly after play got underway in what was an exciting and tight encounter. Dromahill added another point to the scoreboard which was followed by a Mairead Watters point to level matters. With minutes remaining until the break, two goals for us in the space of a minute, Alex and Aoibheann McConville the goal scorers, put us in a commanding position. Two points a piece for each team in the final minutes left the score at the midway point;
Dromahill 1-9 Cross 4-6
Alex scored her third goal just after the ball was thrown in, a point from her and Mairead Watters followed to stretch our lead. Dromahill scored two goals in the next few minutes, we scored a point  and as we approached the second water break, Dromahill added a point and their fourth goal;
Dromahill 4-10 Cross 5-9
Two was the difference as we entered the last quarter, Alex scored her fourth goal of the contest but once again, Dromahill replicated this. With very little time remaining, Aoibheann scored her second goal, again Dromahill fought back, a point scored as normal time  approached and as the game entered injury time, Aoife McCoy scored a goal and with just one between the teams, the final minutes were nerve wrecking but we hung on and won on a score line of;
Dromahill 6-11 scored 7-9
Well done ladies and management, Peter & Maria, on a fantastic win.

Cross V Forkhill

Well done to our junior team who won the junior league on Sunday after defeating Forkhill. By the first water break, we led by two.  We converted a ‘45 to extend the lead to three but Forkhill responded, three points one after anther and with less than ten minutes until the break, the game was all square. Two frees converted for us put us in front once more. A long range point from Stephen Sheridan meant the bare minimum separated the sides. Eoin Keenan slotted over a point form a free just before the half time whistle;

Cross 0-9 Forkhill 0-7

Two points a piece in the opening minutes of the half kept it a close game. Just before the final water break, we scored a point from play to push it to three for the final quarter. Just after the water break, a Caolan Dooley goal was followed by two Cross points without reply to put us firmly in the driving seat. Two points for Forkhill were added to the scoreboard and in the final minutes of the game, both sides traded points to leave the score at full time;

Cross 1-15 Forkhill 0-12
