Crossmaglen Rangers Notes 03/09/18

 

Congratulations

 

Huge congratulations to our Senior camogie team who on Friday night defeated St Brigids in the final who win the Intermediate Championship.
This was the second year running the girls competed in a County final. Last year they won the Junior Championship.
The girls now progress to Ulster with their first Ulster Championship fixture in two weeks.
Well done girls and management on a fantastic win and the entire club sends their very best wishes and good luck in the Ulster Championship.

 

Armagh GAA Senior Football Championship Rd 2

Madden V Cross

Our second game on Saturday evening saw a quick exit from the Seconds match in Grange to Madden for our round 2 Armagh Senior Championship clash.
The first half was a very one sided affair with us very much in control. A Rain O’Neill point in the opening minutes got the scoring underway. When the game was only ten minutes old, we led 1-05 to 0-3, Kyle Carragher the goal scorer. We scored a trio of points to strengthen our lead, Madden scored a point before our second goal came as result of a super pass from Tony Kernan to Stephen Morris who put the ball in the back of the Madden net.
The final minutes of the half saw us score three points to Madden’s two to leave the score at the break;

Madden 0-6 Cross 2-11

The second half was a complete reverse of the first half, from the outset of the half Madden were in control, scoring a point in the opening seconds which signalled their comeback. Seconds later they had the ball in the back of the Cross net to get their first goal of the match. Two points from each side preceded what was to be Maddens best spell of the match, five unanswered points and with a little over five on the clock to go, only two separated the sides. Both sides exchanged points before two points in quick succession left us ahead by four with only a couple minutes of normal time remaining. As the game entered injury time Madden got their second goal to leave the narrowest of margins between the sides. With over fours minutes of injury time played it was nail biting stuff but we held on to our narrow lead to win the match on a scoreline of;

Madden 2-15 Cross 2-16

Well done lads and management. We will now play Clan Éireann next Saturday at home in the third round of the Armagh Senior Championship.

 

Intermediate Football Championship Group A Rd 2

Grange V Cross

Our first game on Saturday saw us travel to Grange. A pleasant evening left conditions near ideal for football.
We were quick off the mark, we scored 1-03 in the opening six minutes of the match, Ruairí O’Neill the goal scorer to Grange’s single point,
Two points a piece from each side and at the midway point of the first half we led, 1-05 to 0-3.
A Grange  point was quick followed by a Ryan Conlon point and as the minutes ticked down to the break, the home side scored 1-02 in a matter of minutes to level the game . Daniel Cumiskey was next to register a score to edge us in front before Grange finished the half the strongest scoring 1-04 as the half drew to a close, the goal coming deep in injury time to leave the score at the half time whistle;
Grange 2-09 Cross 1-09
The third quarter of the game was a very even affair, John Murtagh scored three points which Grange  matched and with fifteen to go we still trailed by the goal.
Three points for us and two for Grange  reduced the deficit to two with only minutes remaining. A John Murtagh goal in the closing stages of the game put us ahead by one but Grange didn’t give up and a point from them in injury time left the game a draw on a scoreline of;

Grange 2-15 Cross 2-15

Well done lads and management.
The Seconds now play Ballyhegan next Saturday in Cross at 4.15pm.

Tribute To Joe Kernan

 

 

 

Tuesday was a very special day for our club but above all for the Kernan family when Joe Kernan was honoured with a Hall Of Fame Award at the GAA Museum in Croke Park.
Joe, was inducted to the hall of fame along with Leonard Enright, which covered the period 1980-1984, to join other iconic GAA figures who will be forever remembered as the greatest in the game.
This award was truly deserved. Joe’s achievements and contributions to our great game has been phenomenal but above all to the Crossmaglen Rangers club where he excelled both on and off the field as a player, manager and also in the administration side of the club.
A true Gael and legend of the GAA whose achievements will be forever remembered and will be an inspiration for generations to come.
Comhghairdeas Joe
