Armagh JFC SF

Cross V Derrynoose

Well done to our seconds team and management who beat a strong Derrynoose team on Saturday evening to advance to the Armagh Junior Championship Final. The game was only minutes old when the heavens opened resulting in extremely slippy conditions. We played with a strong breeze in the first half, a half which was low scoring, two a piece at the first water break. Both sides had missed opportunities, the opposition slotted over a point with minutes remaining until the break to edge them in front. As half time approached, a super pass from Colin O’Connor to Eoin Keenan who hit the ball superbly into the Derrynoose net to put two between the teams as the game entered injury time. Derrynoose added a point just before the half time whistle blew to leave just the bare minimum between the sides.

Armagh SFC QF

Cross V Killeavy

 

 

Killeavy opened the scoring of the game with a point from play in the third minute which was followed by an Oisin O’Neill point to level matters. Cian converted a free and this was the beginning of a scoring spree for us, four points one after the other, (Oisin O’Neill, Cian McConville (0-2) & Rian O’Neill (F))  to give an early lead. Just before the water break, Killeavy slotted over a point to leave the score at the first water break;

Cross 0-6  Killeavy 0-2

As play resumed, both sides had missed opportunities before they traded points, Tony Kernan our point scorer. As the minutes ticked down to half time, Killeavy chipped away at our lead with two points registered to leave the score at half time;

Cross 0-7   Killeavy  0-5 

Minutes after the ball was thrown in to get proceedings under away, we had added two points to the scoreboard, (Alan Farrelly and Cian McConville). Killeavy replicated this to bring it back to a two point game for a brief period of time before Cian scored his fifth point of the contest to put three between the sides at the second water break. Killeavy then had their best spell of the match, two points in quick succession from Ciaran O’Hanlon and a Caolan McConville point left the game all square with nine minutes remaining. A second yellow card for a killeavy player left them down to 14 players at a critical time of the game. We then took control, five points one after the other, and with the finishing line in sight, we were in a commanding position. Killeavy scored a point before they were reduced to thiteeen when one of their players was red carded. Rian brought the scoring of the match to a close with a goal just as the game entered injury time.

Cross 1-15  Killeavy 0-11 

Well done lads and management.

We now play neighbours, Silverbridge in the SF. The game will be played the weekend of the 22nd- 24th October, time and venue tbc.

Congratulations

Congratulations and well done to our U15 team and management who captured the U15 Division 2 League Cup today. The opposition was St Peter’s of Lurgan and the venue was Collegeland. Heavy rain had left conditions difficult. The Lurgan boys played with a strong  wind on their back in the first half and had built up a strong lead by the midway point; (Ben Cumiskey the goal scorer)

Cross 1-3 Eire Og 1-8

The second half had only just begun when we had two points registered to narrow the gap. St Peter’s added a point from play to bring it back to a four point game. We dug deep and a terrific response from the lads, saw them score three unanswered points to leave just the bare minimum separating the sides and an exciting finale was on the cards.  St Peters added a point but in what was our best spell of the match, four points one after another put us firmly in the driving seat as normal time approached. As the game entered injury time, Aaron Haughey lobbed in a high ball which landed in the Peters net to seal the victory. St Peter’s scored a goal just before the full time whistle;

Cross 2-12 St Peter’s 2-10

Well done lads on a great win and hard luck to St Peters. It was a very sporting match with super scores from both sides.

Senior Football Championship
Cross V Madden

 

 

Athletic Grounds on Saturday evening was the setting for our first round of the championship against Madden. High drama in the opening minutes saw Madden score a goal and a point. A super strike from Rian was our opening score. A fantastic save from Tiarnan prevented Madden from registering their second goal. Rian converted two frees to leave just one between the sides. Two points one after another for Madden left the score at the first water break;
Cross 0-3 Madden 1-3

Both sides exchanged points before we had our best spell of the game thus far, three points without reply to leave the game all square with minutes remaining until the break. Madden edged it once more with a point from play. As the half drew to a close, two points from the boot of Ronan Fitzpatrick give us the advantage at half time.
Cross 0-9 Madden 1-5

Madden got the equaliser as play resumed, they added two more points without reply to give them a two point lead. Captain, Stephen Morris slotted over a long range point to narrow the gap, Rian converted a ‘45 and Oisin added a point to our tally. Just before the water break we were awarded a penalty which Rian struck superbly to put us in a good position as we entered the last quarter of the game. After the water break, Madden added a point to the scoreboard before a super pass from Odhran Kieran to Rian resulted in Rian’s second goal and sealed the victory for us. As the game entered injury time, Madden scored a point and we brought the scoring of the day with a close with three points in as minutes.
Cross 2-15 Madden 1-10
Well done lads and management. Next up is Killeavy, date, time & venue tbc.
Thanks to Bobby Carragher who sponsored the match ball.

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.
