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.

Crossmaglen LGFA Notes

Under 8.5/ Under 10.5
We had two great outings this week. Monday seen all of our U8.5 crew in action, on a mini hub. The progress this group has made was very apparent, with great use of space and moving the ball well.
Wednesday night this same group of girls took on Carrickcruppen in the Armagh development league.
Under 12.5s-
Our Championship took place on Sunday, this is the first time competing in Division 1. It was going to be a different level, and we knew Kileavy weren’t going to lie down. It was end to end action, and we couldn’t be more proud of each player on the team, they fought for every ball, but our luck wasn’t in, and Kileavy came away with the win.
Minors– Armagh Minor Championship continuea this week. Training will be Thursday.  Paul will have more details about matches at training.
A reminder that all players must be registered with the LGFA, in order to train or play. If you are unsure how to do this, just contact a coach or committee member.
