Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 24/05/21



Armagh SFL



Pearse Ogs V Cross

Our seniors first outing of 2021 was on Sunday afternoon when they travelled to Pearse Ogs. Our starting fifteen captained by Stephen Morris included two debutants, Ronan Fitzpatrick and Caolán Finnegan. We got off to a dream start, Dara O’Callaghan had the ball in the back of the Ogs net when the game was only minutes old followed by a point from the goal scorer to give us an early lead. Both sides had missed opportunities. The home side’s opening score didn’t come until the midway point of the first half. The second quarter saw both sides score two points a piece to leave the score at half time;

Pearse Ogs 0-3 Cross 1-3

The second half Pearse Ogs were quick off the blocks, seven points without reply and they were now in a commanding position. Substitutions made saw two more young players  make their senior debut, Thomas Og Duffy and James Teelan. Just before the water break, Pearse Ogs added a goal to their tally and as the game entered the last quarter, we had a battle on our hands. Points from Ronan Fitzpatrick and Tony Kernan (2) reduced the deficit. An Ogs point was matched shortly afterwards by a Cian McConville. We had number of missed chances in the closing minutes but Pearse Ogs hung on, scoring the last score of the game, a point in injury time to leave the score at full time;

Pearse Ogs 1-12 Cross 1-7

This group is for P/R6 to 1st year of secondary school.  Training is every Monday 6pm-7.15pm, on Pairc Na Og
What a start these guys are having to their league campaign!! They have played two games and come away, winners of both. The first game was against Mullaghbawn, and it was a very tight match, coming down to the final score. The second match was against Carrickcruppen 2, and it was a very competitive and physical match. The girls had to fight hard for every ball. However, their strength and determination, won the game for them. This week they have a bye, so no game at the minute.
Under 14.5 & 16.5
This session is for all secondary school players. Training is every Wednesday  6pm-7.15pm, on Pairc Na Og and Saturday 4-5.30pm on the Back Field.
U14.5s played Armagh Harps on Thursday, unfortunately they didn’t come away with a win. This week, they will play Shane O’Neill’s, this will be an exciting match, as these teams have a history of meeting in finals.
U16.5s had a Strong first outing in division 1, against Silverbridge. The final score 4-11 to 1-15, which was only 5 points in it.  They take on Clann Eireann on Monday night.
Good luck to both teams and management.
This week seen them draw with Dromahill, which was could’ve easily been a win, as it was an injury time score which secured the draw for the away side.  There are three sessions per week for our senior crew. They are training at Monday 8pm; Thursday 8pm and Saturday 6pm. For more information contact Maria or Peter.
