Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 03/08/20


Senior team sponsored by Hanratty Oils






Armagh SFL A Rd3; Cross V Armagh Harps

Friday evening, we welcomed Armagh Harps to Cross  for our third outing in the Armagh senior football league. Despite being a warm bright sunny evening, the conditions were slippy following the heavy rain which had fallen earlier in the day. Philip Conway was the man in charge of proceedings. Shortly after the ball was thrown in, we had on our first score on the scoreboard, a Dara O’Callaghan point, was quickly followed by points from Rian and Oisin to give us an early lead in the opening minutes.  A free converted by Harps got them off the mark in the seventh minute. We were very much on top of the game, two super scores from Rian and Dara stretched our lead. Harps scored a point from play Which was followed quickly by two unanswered points from the home side, (Rian  and Coilin O’Connor) and at the water break we were in a comfortable position. Seconds after the game resumed, Rian slotted over a point from a free to leave it a six point game. Harps moved the ball well up the field and a goal looked like the likely outcome, but a fantastic save from Tiernan kept our lead in tact and the momentum remained with the Rangers! With minutes remaining until the break, both sides scored  two points a piece. As the half drew to a close, points from Dara (2,1F) and Oisin brought the scoring of the half to a close;

Cross 0-12 Armagh Harps 0-4

Harps started the second half the brightest, two points registered (1F)  and our lead was reduced. Substitute, Cian McConville got his name on the scoresheet with a tremendous point in the 39th minute and this triggered a scoring spree, 2-4 without reply, Oisin and Paudie the  goal scorers and with less than ten minutes to go, we were in a commanding position but Harps didn’t throw in the towel, scoring three points in quick succession. Patsy Finnegan slotted over a point,our last score of the contest, before Harps added two points to their tally to leave the score at full time;

Cross 2-18 Armagh Harps 0-11

Well done lads and management. We send our best wishes and good luck to the team and management, Armagh SFC Rd 1 V Silverbridge.
