Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 10/08/20


Senior team sponsored by Hanratty Oils






Armagh SFC Rd1; Cross V Silverbridge

A sultry Athletic Grounds was the setting for our first round clash of the Armagh senior football championship against neighbours, Silverbridge Harps. Before referee Ollie Hearty threw the ball in, a minutes silence was observed for the late Goretti Campbell, Silverbridge. It was the opposition who settled  quickly, three points in as many minutes to give them an early lead. Cian converted a free in the seventh minute to get us off the mark. A number of missed opportunities for us followed in what was a very fast moving encounter. Two super strikes, one from Oisin and the other from his Brother, Rian sailed over the bar to level matters  for a brief period before Silverbridge edged in front once more with a point, the result of a free. Just before the first water break, we moved the ball well down the field, a super pass from Oisin to Mel to Oisin who struck the ball into the Bridge net to give us our first goal of the afternoon. Seconds after play resumed following the water break, Silverbridge had a point registered to leave just the bare minimum between the sides. Again both sides had a number of wides, as the game entered the last ten minutes of the half, both sides traded points, Dara O’Callaghan our scorer. As the half drew to a close, two unanswered points, Rian and Cian (F) meant the goal was the difference at the break.

Cross 1-06 Silverbridge 0-06



A Rian point was the opening score of the second half, a half which we dominated. Two goals from the Kernan Brothers, Tony’s goal coming first,  Mels shot was stopped by the Bridge goalie, the ball rebounded to Tony who struck it well to give us our second goal of the match. Less than a minute later, a fantastic pass from Oisin to Aaron who hit a rasper of a shot to register our third goal on the scoreboard and to put us in a commanding position. Both teams scored a point a piece . As we entered the final quarter of the match, Silverbridge were awarded a penalty which they scored to reduce the deficit. A point each from Kyle and Chris brought our scoring of the day to a close and as the game entered injury time, Silverbridge slotted over a point to leave the score at full time;

Cross 3-10  Silverbridge 1-08

The second half was low scoring and evenly matched, three points for the home side and four for us but we had a number of missed opportunities in the final minutes of the game and it was Eire Óg who hung onto their lead to secure the points and win on a score line of;
