Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 19/08/19

Armagh SFC Group 1 Rd 1

Clann Éireann V Cross

All roads led to Lurgan on Saturday night for our opening match in the Armagh Senior Championship. A bright but very blustery Clan Éireann was the setting and it was the home side who played with the wind in the first half.
The first fifteen minutes were a very even affair, four points a piece for each team, Aaron Kernan (2,1f) Stephen Morris and Colin O’Connor our scorers.
Clan Éireann slotted over a point to put them in front for the first time in the match but this was to be short lived, we went on a scoring spree registering five points without response, Aaron (3,2F), Cian (F) and Johnny Hanratty. Clann Éireann scored a point before the opening goal of the game came, a super pass from Oisin O’Neill to Mel Boyce who hit the ball superbly into the Clann Éireann net to reinforce our already strong lead.
Half time; Clann Éireann 0-06 Cross 1-09

Wednesday night our Seniors travelled to Cullyhanna for their fixture in the Armagh senior league.
Jim Slevin was the man in the middle. A warm sunny evening left conditions ideal for football.
Mel Boyce opened the scoring in the first minute with a super point to get us off the mark.
Less than a minute later, high drama ensued the referee noticed a foul committed and as a result, Cullyhanna were awarded a penalty which they struck well to give them an early lead in the opening minutes.
The flowing minutes of the game saw a period where both sides had a number of missed opportunities. Two points from Cian (1,F) and one from Rían and with fifteen gone on the clock we had regained the lead for only a short period of time, a long range point from Cullyhanna equalised the match.
Rían stepped up to take a free along the sideline which sailed over the bar in what was to be the score of the match.
We finished the half strong, four points without reply, Clan (2), Rían  and Oisin to give us a comfortable lead. Cullyhanna scored a point as the game entered injury time to leave the score at the break;
