Armagh SFC QF;

Cross V Mullaghbawn

Our seniors had an early start in the Athletic Grounds, a half one throw in with Tony O’Hare the man in the middle. An Oisin O’Neill point opened the scoring of the contest in the fourth minute which was quickly followed by a Mullaghbawn score to level matters. This was to be the only time the game would be level. A super score from Dara O’Callaghan signalled the start of a scoring spree, which saw us register 2-2 before Mullaghbawn scored their second point, (Oisin and Tony K, the goal scorers) to give us a commanding lead. As the minutes ticked down to the break, it was all one way traffic, a further 1-3 scored to a single point from Mullaghbawn, Mel the scorer of our third goal, to leave the score at the break;

Cross 3-07 Mullaghbawn 0-03

With the second half just seconds old, Rian had slotted over a point which was quickly followed by points from Cian and Mel. Mullaghbawn scored two points in as many minutes to reduce the deficit. Another trio of points (Oisin, Rían and Cian) and as the game entered the last quarter, we were firmly in the driving seat. Mullaghbawn added two points, both from frees. An Oisin O’ Neill point preceded a penalty awarded to us, Cian struck the penalty, the goalkeeper saved it, the ball rebounded and Cian finished it into the back of the net. The final minutes saw us score four points, two points coming from the boot of substitute, Odhran Kieran. Mullaghbawn scored three points, two the result of frees awarded.

Cross 4-18 Mullaghbawn 0-10

A draw will take place on Monday night to decide the semi final pairings.

 

 

 

 

Armagh Junior Football Championship Rd 1

 

 

 

 

Cross V Redmond O’Hanlons

From the Athletic Grounds, all roads led to Silverbridge for our opening game in the Armagh junior championship. The opening minutes were an even, tense affair, the sides level at three a piece after eleven minutes of play, Callum Kieran (2) and Shane McConville (1). Callum converted a free to edge us in front and two points in quick succession from Shane left the score at the first water break,  6-3. As play resumed, we had a number of missed opportunities but the lads got to grips with the game, four points one after another, Franny, Shane and Callum (2) to strengthen our lead as half time approached. It was the opposition to finished the half the strongest, three points, two from frees to leave the score at the midway point;

Cross 0-10  Redmond O’Hanlon’s 0-6

O’Hanlon’s got the first two scores of the second half to make it a two point game. We scored  our opening score in the sixth minute before O’Hanlon’s had their brightest spell of the game , three points without reply to level the game and as we entered the last fifteen minutes we were in for an exciting finale. The game remained all square for a short period, we stepped up a gear, five points one after another, Shane, James Teelan (3) and Paul Mckeown to put us in a comfortable position with the finishing line in sight but O’Hanlon’s didn’t throw in the towel, three points in as many minutes  and once again it was a two point game. A fantastic score from Callum give us some breathing space but O’Hanlon’s matched it and as the game entered injury time, two was still the difference, a Redmond O’Hanlon’s point brought it back to the bare minimum but we hung on to our lead with some super defending and we got the final score of the game, a point, the result of a free converted which brought the scoring of the evening to a close.

Cross 0-18  Redmond O’Hanlon’s 0-16

 

Well done to our senior & junior teams/managements, it was a great day for the black and amber!
