Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 24/09/18


Cormac Leonard SFC Quarter Final
Cross V Armagh Harps

The second game in the Athletic Grounds on Saturday evening saw us face County Champions, Armagh Harps in the Cormac Leonard Commercials Senior football championship quarter final. Our very own Hannah McConville from Crinkle sang Amhrán na bhfiann. Well done Hannah.
Seconds after Jake Magill had thrown in the ball to get proceedings underway, Harps had registered their first score, a point the result of a free.
Paul Hughes got our opening score to leave it one a piece. We settled quickly, scoring eight points without reply. Armagh Harps had a super chance of a goal but Jamie McEvoy acted quickly to fist the ball away and with ten to go until the break we had a comfortable lead. Armagh Harps scored three points in quick succession to reduce the deficit and as the first half drew to a close, three more points from both sides left the score at half time;
Cross 0-12 Armagh Harps 0-07 

We were quick off the mark as the second half commenced, Johnny McKeever had the ball over the bar with the half only ten seconds old. Rían O’Neill followed suit minutes later before our first goal came, thanks to a super shot from Kyle Carragher. Both sides exchanged points and with twenty to go we were firmly in control. Immediately after Harps had registered another point, the ball was the opposite side of the field, a terrific pass from Rían O’Neill to Johnny McKeever who hit the ball into the roof of the opposition’s net to give us our second goal and extend our lead. Harps responded, scoring three points in as many minutes to reduce the lead but we did exactly the same, points from Colin O’Connor, Johnny McKeever and Kyle Carragher left us firmly in the driving seat. With minutes left on the clock, Harps scored a goal and two points but our boys pushed on, scoring four points one after another to bring our scoring to a close. Harps slotted over a point in injury time.
Cross 2-22 Armagh Harps 1-15
Well done lads and management on a fantastic all round team performance.

Crossmaglen LGFA Info:

County final for the U16 Squad: We are delighted to report that this week the U16 squad will take on Middleton on Saturday. This is the second consecutive year that these players will contest a final. In 2017, they narrowly lost the final and this has clearly motivated them this season. The road to the final has been extremely bumpy, with the first round against St. Paul’s in Lurgan resulted in the game being abandoned, due to a player on the opposing team becoming injured. The game was awarded to Crossmaglen, and the squad met Mallaghbawn.

The initial meeting resulted in a draw, and the replay end to end action (2.09 to 3.06). The players caught hard, but both sides wanted to ensure they give it their all. Again the score line was tight, but it was the goals that made the difference for Crossmaglen (5.11 to 1.12). So up next is Middletown, with the final scheduled for 3pm on Saturday in Pearse Ogs. We want to wish Paul Duffy, Shannon Clarke, Frank Shields and the entire square the very best in this weeks final. All support is welcome.

U16 Panel 2018: Aoife McDermott, Cara O’Neill, Megan Walsh, Eabha Boyle, Eimear McMahon, Caoimhe Dooley, Grace Fitzpatrick, Lucy Duffy, Brianna O’Neill, Caitlin Lenaghan, Melissa Hughes, Eva Cassidy, Eimear Morgan, Lauren Lavelle, Kellie Shields, Shannon Conway, Clodagh Conway, Chloe Friary, Shakira Mackin, Rebecca Walsh, Lucy-Jo Clarke.


Gaelic for Girls:

Our indoor winter training has been postponed for a couple of weeks, while details are being finalised. Information will be hopefully be available next week.
