Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 30/08/21




Armagh LGFA SFC Preliminary Round
Dromahill V Cross
Sunday evening our senior ladies travelled to Dromintee to play Dromahill (Dromintee & Forkhill)
Lauren McConville opened the scoring with a point, Dromahill equalised shortly afterwards and a Holly Morgan point give them the lead. Lauren scored her second point from play to equalise the game but this was to be short lived, the home-side scored two points in as many minutes to edge in front once more. The first goal of the contest came in the eighth minute, thanks to Alex Clarke and within seconds, Alex added a point to her tally. Aislinn McMahon scored our second goal but Dromahill replicated this and with thirteen gone on the clock, we were ahead by two. Just before the first water break, Dromahill scored a point from play to leave just one between the sides.
Dromahill 1-5 Cross 2-3
The equaliser came shortly after play got underway in what was an exciting and tight encounter. Dromahill added another point to the scoreboard which was followed by a Mairead Watters point to level matters. With minutes remaining until the break, two goals for us in the space of a minute, Alex and Aoibheann McConville the goal scorers, put us in a commanding position. Two points a piece for each team in the final minutes left the score at the midway point;
Dromahill 1-9 Cross 4-6
Alex scored her third goal just after the ball was thrown in, a point from her and Mairead Watters followed to stretch our lead. Dromahill scored two goals in the next few minutes, we scored a point  and as we approached the second water break, Dromahill added a point and their fourth goal;
Dromahill 4-10 Cross 5-9
Two was the difference as we entered the last quarter, Alex scored her fourth goal of the contest but once again, Dromahill replicated this. With very little time remaining, Aoibheann scored her second goal, again Dromahill fought back, a point scored as normal time  approached and as the game entered injury time, Aoife McCoy scored a goal and with just one between the teams, the final minutes were nerve wrecking but we hung on and won on a score line of;
Dromahill 6-11 scored 7-9
Well done ladies and management, Peter & Maria, on a fantastic win.

U19 Championship  Final
Cross V Madden
All roads led to the Athletic Grounds on Friday night for the Cormac Leonard U19 Division 1 Championship Final.
The opening minutes were an even encounter, at the first water break,  Madden led, 0-3 to 0-2.
The second quarter we got to grips with the game, 1-4 without reply, Caolan Finnegan the goal scorer, to leave the score at half time;
Cross 1-6 Madden 0-3
Madden were quick off the blocks at the resumption of play, three points one after another to reduce the deficit. Our opening score of the half was a super strike from Captain, Dara O’Callaghan, to leave four between the sides. Caolan Dooley got his name on the scoresheet to extend the lead.  A Madden point just before the second water break brought it back to a four point game once again.
Cross 1-8 Madden 0-7.
With a little over ten to go, Caolan Finnegan slotted over a point and we were in a comfortable position with the finishing line in sight but Madden responded,  a point from play followed quickly by a goal and with five minutes remaining and just the bare minimum the difference, we were in for an exciting finale. Both sides had missed opportunities before Madden converted a free to leave it all square as the game entered injury time. The game could of went either way in the dying minutes but when referee , Jake Magill blew the whistle for full time., the sides couldn’t be separated. We must do it all again!
Cross 1-9 Madden 1-9
Good luck to the entire squad and management, Stephen, Jim & Francis

Crossmaglen LGFA Notes

Feile 2021
Our club hosted the Armagh LGFA Feile Cup competition on Saturday. We had 8 clubs attending from across the county, playing the highest level of football. This was a great event for our own team, as we contested the Feile at the highest level.
However, on the day Kileavy, last years winners, met Clann Eireann in the final. It was an end to end final, with Clann Eireann taking the led early, with a goal and two point before Kileavy give a reply. At half time the Lurgan side lead by 4 points but Kileavy made full use of their bench. They brought the Feile title home for the so end year in a row.

Also on Saturday we had the pleasure of having the Ulster Cup visit the club. Armagh LGFA player, Aveen Bellew shared the final experience with our young Rangers.
