Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 24/10/22

Armagh SFC Final

Cross V Granemore



The opening score of the final came in the second minute, a point for Granemore from a free converted. Cian replicated this a minute later followed by a point from play for Paul and Cian’s second point, the result of a free. Granemore got their second point and with ten minutes gone, we led by one. We had a number of missed opportunities but just as the clock struck the midway point of the first half, we went on a scoring spree, a super strike from Rian sailed over the bar, a further 1-2 followed in the space of five minutes, Rian (0-1) and Caolan (1-1), the goal coming as a result of a quick free kick from Rian to Caolan who struck it superbly into the back of the opposition’s net. The closing minutes of the half, we scored 0-3 to 0-2, Cian (0-2,1F) and Callum (M) to leave the score at half time;

Cross 1-9 Granemore 0-4

Seconds after Shane Murphy had thrown the ball in, Cian had a point added to the board to stretch our lead. Granemore then had their brightest spell of the match, four points without reply (1F) to narrow the gap to five and over twenty minutes to go. But this lead of five was to be short lived, the boys took control of the game, five points one after the other, Dara, Rian, Cian (0-2,1F) and  Ronan, some of these scores were the finest scores of the game and with the finishing line and Gerry Fegan in sight, we were in the driving seat. Granemore’s last scores were two points in quick succession but we finished the game in style, points from Fitzy, Cian, Chris and Rian were registered and as the final whistle blew, a sea of black and amber amassed onto the pitch.

Cross 1-19 Granemore 0-10

Armagh SFC SF



Cross V Maghery

All roads led to the Athletic Grounds on Friday night for our championship semi final game against Maghery. Conditions were very slippy following rain earlier in the day and this was evident not long after the ball was thrown in, a back pass to the Maghery goalie who lost his footing and the ball rolled into the net to give as an early lead and the game only seconds old. We dominated the first quarter, eight points without reply, six from play and two scores from a mark, Aaron, Stephen,  Caolan (2) Jamie (2) Ronan  & Rian.  Maghery’s opening score came in the eighteenth minute, a point from a free converted. As the minutes ticked down to the break, Rian slotted over a free and Maghery added two points to the board (1F) to leave the score at half time:

Cross 1-9  Maghery 0-3

We started the second half similar to how the game had commenced, scores registered quickly, three points from play, Jamie & Cian (2). Seconds later, the opposite end of the field, Ronan Lappin scored a goal for Maghery to reduce the deficit. Two points a piece for each team all from play, (Ronan & Cian) and as the game entered the last fifteen minutes, we led by nine. The last quarter, again, we were firmly in charge, Rian converted a free and a goal each for Ronan & Cian,  both super strikes, to a point for Maghery.

Cross 3-15  Maghery 1-6 

Well done lads and management on a super team performance.

Armagh SFC QF



Cross V Dromintee

All roads led to the Athletic Grounds on Sunday evening. A minute’s silence in memory of the late Pete McEntee was observed before the game. A six o’clock throw in meant the majority of the match was played under lights. Tony O’Hare was the man in charge of proceedings. A low scoring first half, just two scores  from each team., 0-2 for Cross, 1-1 for the opposition, their goal coming from play in the eighteenth minute. At half time, we trailed just by two even though we played most of the half with fourteen players after we were reduced to fourteen men early on in the game.

Cross 0-2 Dromintee 1-1

Tow points from Rian (1,F) levelled maters in the opening minutes of the seconds half. Dromintee edged in front as the game entered the last quarter. We then scored three points without reply, Cian, Rian (F) and Jamie and with the clock ticking down, we led by two. As the game entered injury time, Dromintee converted two frees one after the other to leave it all square at full time.

Cross 0-7 Dromintee 1-4

We were back to fifteen players for the period of extra time. We were quick off the mark as extra time commenced, a super score from Ronan in the opening minute sparked a scoring spree, five points without reply, Jamie, Rian (‘45), Chris, Fitzy and Stephen (F). Just before  the ref blew the whistle for half time, Ryan Hughes registered a point  for Dromintee;

Cross 0-14 Dromintee 1-5

The second half we dominated and our lead was never threatened, a point for Cian and a fantastic goal from the boot of Daniel Cumiskey were added to our tally to leave the score at full time of extra time;

Cross 1-15 Dromintee 1-5

Well done lads and management. We now play Maghery in the SF. CC will confirm fixtures on Monday.
