Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 10/09/18




U18 League Division 1 Final

Clan Éireann V Cross
Carrickcruppen was the venue the Armagh U18 Division 1 League Final.
The Lurgan boys started the strongest, scoring 1-02 in the opening minutes, the goal the result of a penalty converted before we got our opening score, an Oisín Doyle point.
That point signalled a scoring spree for Oisín, scoring a magnificent 2-03 to Clan Eireanns three points in the next fifteen minutes.
As the half drew to a close, two points from James Teelan extended our lead. As the game entered injury time, Clann Éireann scored a point and it was Cían McConville who finished the scoring of the half with a goal and a point to leave the score at half time;

Clan Éireann 1-06 Cross 3-07
The second half was only underway when Eoghan McMahon and Ryan Duffy got their names on the scoresheet with a point each. Clan Éireann responded with a goal and a point to reduce the deficit but we remained in control of the game. Oisín Doyle scored another point to add to his personal tally. A superb shot was blocked by the Clan Éireann goalie which rebounded and Cían McConville kicked into the Clans net to give us our fourth goal of the game.
Both sides exchanged points and at the midway point of the second half our lead was very much intact.
We kicked nine unanswered points and in the final minutes of the game Clan Éireann scored two goals and a point to leave the scoreline at the final whistle;
Clan Éireann 4-09 Cross 4-20
Well done one to the entire squad on a fantastic all round team performance and to Managers, Stephen & Thomas and Peter( back room staff ).

Heavy rain left conditions very slippy.
Two points in the opening minutes, Rían O’Neill and Tony Kernan got the scoring underway for us.
Clann Eireann’s , Conor Turbitt got their first point before we went on a scoring spree, we registered 2-02 ( Rían O’Neill & Paul Hughes our goal scorers).Clann Éireann scored a point and midway through the first half we had a comfortable lead.
Three unanswered points for us strengthened our lead and as the half drew to a close, another three points for us and two for Clann Éireann left the score at half time;
Cross 2-10 Clann Éireann 0-04
Both sides exchanged points at the start of the second half but we were very much in control, registering a trio of points without reply. A Clann Éireann point in the fortieth minute preceded our third goal, Kyle Carragher the goal scorer.
As the game entered the final quarter, Paudie Stuttard scored a point before Tony Kernan scored our fourth goal. As the game drew to a close, two points in quick succession from the visitors brought the scoring to a close and we ran out winners on a scoreline of;

Cross 4-15 Clann Éireann 0-08

Our seniors topped the table in group B and are now through to the quarter finals.
Well done to the entire team and management on a super win.

Intermediate Football Championship Group A Rd 3

Cross V Ballyhegan 

Our first game at home saw our Seconds against Ballyhegan.
Stephen McKinley was the man in charge.
We settled quickly, two points from John Murtagh(1,F) and one from the boot of Ryan Conlon put us three ahead before Ballyhegan scored two quick points in the tenth minute to leave it a one point game.
Both sides exchanged points before we got three unanswered points to leave us ahead by four with ten to go until the break.
The following ten minutes of the half saw us score three points (1F) and Ballyhegan score four (3F). At the halfway point we led 10 to 0-7
Ballyhegan had a point on the board seconds after Stephen McKinkey had thrown the ball in to leave it a two point game. John Murtagh got his first goal of the evening which was quickly followed by a Ballyhegan point. Two points a piece from each team and as we entered the final quarter we were still ahead by four.
As the minutes ticked down on the clock, we scored another three points to Ballyhegan’s two and in the final seconds of the games, a John Murtagh point seconds before the score of the game came, thanks to a superb strike from the boot of John Murtagh which landed in the back of the Ballyhegan net, a fitting way to end the match after a super team performance.
Cross 2-17  Ballyhegan 0-14
Well done lads and management.
We send our very best wishes to Daniel Cumiskey & Daniel Cunningham who both sustained injuries during the match.
