Armagh SFC SF;

Cross V Killeavy 

All roads led to the Athletic Grounds for our Armagh Senior Championship Semi Final clash against Killeavy with Jake Magill the referee. A bright calm evening left conditions ideal. We settled quickly, with three minutes played, we had scored three points from play, Stephen Morris (2) and Cian McConville. Killeavy’s opening score coming in the 7th minute which was quickly followed by a point each from Cian and Rian (F) to stretch our lead. We had a number missed opportunities. As the minutes ticked down to the water break, a point from Oisin was followed by a point from the opposition.  to bring it back to a 3 point game before a super  score from Dara O’Callaghan brought it back to four at the first water break. As play resumed, a Killeavy point from play narrowed the gap once again. Oisin hit his second point of the contest before high drama ensued, a controversial decision to give Tony Kernan his second  yellow card resulted in us being reduced to 14 men in a game which was being played at a very fast pace and high intensity. Points from Cian and Stephen brought our scoring of the half to a close, a killeavy point from a free converted following by a point in injury time preceded the half time whistle.

Cross 0-10 Killeavy 0-5

We repeated what we did the start of the game, the second half less than a minute old when  Cian had registered a point on the scoreboard. Killeavy scored a point from play before two points from, Rian (1, ‘45 ) to give us a comfortable lead with twenty minutes to go.  A Kyle Mallon point from Kileavy started a scoring spree for them , in what was their best spell of the match, three unanswered points and at the second water break, they had narrowed the gap to 3. Killeavy engerised from their bright spell before the water break, continued where they left off, three points one after another to level matters for the first time and with only six minutes of normal time, we were in for an exciting finale. A tremendous response from young Dara O’Callaghan, two points in as many minutes and our lead was in reinstated. It was heart stopping stuff as Killeavy never give up, a fanatstic save from our number one,  Tiarnan McConville knocked the wind out of killeavy’s sails and we hung on to book a place in the Armagh Senior Championship Final;

Cross 0-15 Killeavy 0-13

Well done lads and management, we are so proud of you all, you showed tremendous resilience and guts especially in the closing minutes

Traditionally, we host a big breakfast the week before County Final but 2020 has ensured nothing goes to plan! We have a number of ideas in the pipeline and more details will follow during the week. We ask all supporters and friends to show their support for the lads by proudly displaying the black and amber! Get those flags out!
