Crossmaglen Rangers Ladies 

The ladies of our club have had a busy and very successful time recently. The Camogs are through to the Armagh Intermediate Championship Final after a great win against Cullyhanna. The Camogie summer camp took place during the week where eighty five children took part. Well done to all involved. The U16 girls had a good win against Eire Óg on Thursday night and on Friday night our Senior Ladies were in action against Silverbridge in the quarter final of the Armagh ladies senior championship. A brilliant performance from the girls ensured they reached the semi final, beating the Bridge by a point.
Congratulations girls and managements. #girlpower.

 

 

 

 

 

U16 Div 1 Championship SF

Cross V Clann Éireann

A venue change saw us travel to Carrickcruppen on Thursday evening for our championship tie with Clann Éireann
Jim Burns was the man in the middle.
The game got off to a dramatic start. We were awarded a penalty in the second minute which James Teelan converted to give us a good lead early on. At the halfway point of the first half we led, 1-02 to 0-1 but as the game enetered the final minutes before the break Clann Éireann scored five points a Dara O’Callaghan point for us left the game all square at the break.
We got the opening two scores of the match to put us in the lead once again , Clann Éireann scored a goal in the thirteenth minute to edge them in front by the narrowest of margins. Clann Éireann scored another point before a Caolan Finnegan point brought it back to one point game once again with just over seven on the clock to go. Shortly afterwards, the Lurgan boys got their second goal of the match, minutes later the same happened the opposite end of the field as scored our second to leave just one the difference once again but a Clann Éireann point in the 28th point put them two in front which was enough to seal the victory.
Hard luck boys and management.
Cross 2-06 Clann Éireann 2-08

 

 

 

U18 League Div 1 Decider SF

On Monday night we welcomed Armagh Harps to Cross to play in the league decider semi final. From the start of the match the boys were in control and built up a substantial lead early on. This lead was never compromised and at the half way point we led 1-13 to Harp’s 0-4. The second half started identical to how the game had commenced, Cían McConville had the ball over the bar when the second half was only seconds . We pushed on, scoring in total 1-11 in the second period. As the game drew to a close four unanswered points from Harps reduced the deficit. It was a fantastic all round team performance.
Cross 2-24 Armagh Harps 0-07
Well done lads and management

Crossmaglen Rangers LGFC Info:

Success for our Seniors in the first round of Armagh senior championship. Having won the intermediate championship last season, our ladies team were promoted to the senior championship, for the first time in a number of years. Drawn against league winners, Silverbridge, in the first round, the team went in as the underdogs. The game in the Bridge throw in, and Silverbridge quickly knocked a point over the bar. The kick out was won and the ball moved up the field quickly but Lauren was pulled down, and won a free. Lauren Kicked the ball, dropping it in front of the goalie, but our girls managed to get it a cross the line, and they were 2 points up. A fast paced game ensued, with another goal from Alex Clarke and the one for the bridge, the half time score was 1.10 to 2.05, Silverbridge, just edging ahead. The second half began, with a number of points and Cross managed to level the score line, within a few minutes. However, it wasn’t for long as the Bridge scored another goal. Another uphill struggle for Cross, but they rallied and again found the onion net. However, Silverbride responded with a point, and Cross led by a point with two minutes to go. The girls fought well, to keep possession and held their lead until the final whistle. The girls now progress to the semi-final, and will meet Carrickcruppen.
