Crossmaglen Rangers sent out a statement when they defeated Lurgan side Sarsfields by 11 points in their Senior Championship encounter.

Crossmaglen’s John Murtagh got his side off to an ideal by striking a goal and a close range point in the opening minute of play.  Cross never looked back from there and sailed their way into the second round draw, the South Armagh side put in a great team performance and had ten separate scorers in the match, the final score was 3-16 to 1-11.

Sarsfields couldn’t cope with Crossmaglen’s rapid movement straight from the start and were completely rattle by Murtagh’s early scores.

The underdogs got their first point of the game through a free kick from Johnny Reynolds.  Paul McGeown added their second minutes later as they tried their best to keep the deficit to a reasonable margin.

Kyle Carragher almost grabbed a second goal for Cross 11 minutes into the game when he burst through the Sarsfields defence, but his effort was superbly saved by Darren McAvoy.

Unfortuately for Sarsfields, McAvoy couldn’t do anything about John Murtagh’s strike on the 14th minute.  The Crossmaglen danger man picked the ball up 13 yards from goal, beat two defenders and smashed the ball into the roof of the Sarsfield goal.

Crossmaglen had no real trouble holding on to their lead in the first half, the only real dangerous moment Sarsfields produced was when Colin Stevenson was put through on goal by Eimead Murray, but his powerful shot was straight at Paul Hearty.

James Morgan and Paul McGeown both received black cards for separate off the ball incidents just as things got heated just before half time.

Tony Kernan scored Crossmaglen’s first point in the second half with an accurate shot to put the current champions ahead by nine.

Crossmaglen full back Brendan McKeown was sent off when received his second yellow card for dragging Thomas McAlinden to the ground.

They certainly didn’t let that red card knock them back, and got a third goal on the 51st minute.  Michael McNamee showed great skill and control to dodge his way through the Sarsfields defence and calmly rolled the ball past Darren McAvoy.

Sarsfields best player on the night Michael Stevenson grabbed a late consolation goal for his side, this took Stevenson’s tally to 1-05.

Crossmaglen won the game by 11 points and showed no real weaknesses.  They will now face Carrickcruppen in two weeks time, and will certainly go into that game with a high morale after this impressive victory.

CROSSMAGLEN RANGERS: Paul Hearty; James Morgan, Brendan McKeown, Paul Hughes; Martin Aherne (0-02), Paul McKeown, Aaron Kernan (0-01); Johnny Hanratty (0-01), Rico Kelly (0-01); Tony Kernan (0-03), Stephen Finnegan (0-01), Callum Cumiskey (0-03); John Murtagh (2-02), Michael McNamee (1-00), Kyle Carragher (0-02).

Armagh Harps beat Pearse Og by four points in the first round of the Senior Championship at the Athletic Grounds on Sunday.

This was fairly close encounter throughout, Pearse Og managed to build an early lead and were two points up midway through the first half.  The Harps managed to fight back much thanks to the accuracy of Ultan Lennon, and lead at the break.  The Harps held on to their lead throughout the second half and managed to stretch it to six when Lennon grabbed a goal.  The Ogs tried to fight back but their efforts were unsuccessful and the game finished 1-11 to 0-10 in favour of The Harps.

Sean Moore got the opening score of the night with a free kick from 45 yards to put Pearse Og ahead, this was shortly followed by a second from Paul Duffy.  Duffy’s long range effort was helped over the bar by Paddy Morrison in the Armagh Harps goal.

The reliable Ultan Lennon got The Harps rolling with a free kick from the ground.  The Ogs soon responded with scores from Connor Clarke and Sean Moore.

Lennon got The Harps back on level terms on the 20th minute when he scored a great point with his right foot.

Things stayed tight in the closing stages of the half as both teams frustrated each other with some strong defending.  A point from the impressive Karol Loughran put The Harps ahead just before half time.

A long range point from Pearse Og captain Darnell Parkinson levelled things up again early on in the second half.  Harps soon regained their lead with two consecutive scores, the latter of those was from Simon McCoy who caused real problems for The Ogs with his pace.

The Harps hit a great spell in the second half, they really got a hold of the game and began to dominate all over the pitch.  Ultan Lennon fisted the ball into his rival’s goal on the 52nd minute to put The Harps ahead by five.

Former All-Star Jamie Clarke was introduced for Pearse Og to help trigger a comeback, he made a strong impact and kicked over three points for the trailing side.

Despite Clarke’s best efforts, Pearse Og fell short in this one, and the Harps came out on top by four points.  It was a deserved victory for Armagh Harps on the day, Pearse Og will take this as a wakeup call and will be thankful for a second chance in the qualifiers.

ARMAGH HARPS: Paddy Morrison; Kevin Morris(0-01), Conal McKee, Mark McCoy; Mark McConville, Joe McElroy, Rory McGrath; Charles Vernon, Declan McKenna (0-01); Simon McCoy (0-01), Ultan Lennon (1-05), Karol Loughran (0-02); Ryan McShane, Pauric Rafferty (0-01), Paddy McCoy.

Armagh 5-17 Laois 0-09
Captain Caroline O’Hanlon scored 2-06 as Ulster champions Armagh hammered Laois 5-17 to 0-09 in Saturday’s TG4 All-Ireland Ladies senior football championship quarter-final in Tullamore.
O’Hanlon, fresh from her international netball exploits with Northern Ireland at the Commonwealth Games, pulled the strings at O’Connor Park as the Orchard County booked their place in the semi-finals for the first time since 2006.
O’Hanlon was superb but this was an excellent team performance from Armagh, who announced themselves as serious All-Ireland contenders following last month’s Ulster championship win.
James Daly’s Armagh had nine players on the scoresheet, including all six forwards and midfield pair O’Hanlon and Niamh Henderson.
Siobhan Feeney also came off the bench to kick two points and while Laois were simply outclassed, Martina Dunne still managed to contribute 0-06.
By half-time the game was over as a contest with wind-assisted Armagh 3-07 to 0-02 clear.
The quality of Armagh’s kick-passing to their inside forwards was sensational and O’Hanlon was at the heart of most of her side’s best work.
O’Hanlon, 30, netted the opening goal of the game with just a minute and four seconds on the watch, taking a pass from Fionnuala McKenna before cracking home a sensational effort.
Laois didn’t score until the 18th minute, when Dunne kicked a fine points from play, but they were eight points behind at that stage.
And the Laois misery continued when Mags McAlinden scored the first of her two goals in the 20th minute.
Two minutes later, Lauren McConville registered Armagh’s third goal and the winners were content to keep the scoreboard ticking over in the second half.
Armagh’s fourth goal arrived in the 43rd minute, when O’Hanlon played a one-two with Kelly Mallon before finishing well.
And Armagh’s fifth and final goal summed up a miserable day for Laois as the ball rebounded off McAlinden and trickled over the line, after goalkeeper Ciamh Dollard had pulled off a good save to deny the corner forward at the first attempt.
The scoreline could have been much worse from a Laois perspective but Dollard pulled off a couple of fine saves.
And Armagh suffered a late injury blow when impressive corner back Mairead Tennyson went off injured, leaving the Ulster side to play out the final couple of minutes with 14 players.
Laois had bounced back from their Leinster final mauling against Dublin with an encouraging qualifier win over last year’s TG4 All-Ireland intermediate champions Cavan.
But despite battling performances from Dollard, Clodagh Dunne, Meagan Dunne and Martina Dunne, this was a day to forget for Laois.
Armagh: K Daly; M Tennyson, C Morgan, L Kenny; S Reel, N Marley, R O’Reilly; N Henderson (0-01), C O’Hanlon (2-6, 3f) S McCleary (0-01), F McKenna (0-1f), A McCoy (0-01); L McConville (1-02), K Mallon (0-02), M McAlinden (2-0).
Subs: S Grey for Henderson (30), S Feeney (0-02) for McConville (38), S Mackle for McKenna (42), E Lavey for Mallon (45), C Duffy for Reel (52).
Laois: C Dollard; C Dunne, G Dunne, M Young; M Murphy, F Dooley, Meagan Dunne (0-01); A Moore, T Lawlor (0-01); M Kirwan (0-1), Martina Dunne (0-06, 3f), E McVey; R Williams, LM Maher, J Dunne.
Subs: N Kirwan for Williams (36), R Phelan for Young (36), A Keogh for J Dunne (39), L Nurney for Dooley (51).

Granemore had to dig deep to grind out a victory over their neighbours Ballymacnab in what was an exciting encounter at the Athletic Grounds in Armagh last night (Friday).

Granemore made a bright start to the game and grabbed some early scores to give them a four point advantage eight minutes into the game. The Nab soon rallied forward and reduced the deficit to just one point going into half time. It turned out to be a point for point second half, but a goal from Jason O’Neill proved to be the pivotal strike as Granemore came out on top by one.
The impressive Jason O’Neill scored a great opening point with his left foot, as he quickly turned his marker before lashing over from 30 yards.

Christopher O’Connor scored a free kick after Ryan Rafferty was brought down out wide on the left hand side. This was shortly followed up with a point from Shane Rafferty after a great team move which was started by Ryan Rafferty.

Rory Grugan who was definitely one of the best players on the night, if not the best, got Ballymacnab’s first score with a long range left footed effort.

Gavin McParland added another with a free kick off the ground from quite a tight angle on the right, to leave Ballymacnab trailing by just two points midway through the first half.

The game began to get quite physical at this stage as both teams had brushed off all nerves and were well tuned into the game. There were a number of hard hits and off the ball clashes but this didn’t get out of hand and was probably to be expected, with both teams showing real determination to come out on top.

A great example of this determination was shown on the 20th minute when Finbar Conroy bravely leaped to catch the ball in his own six yard box to prevent a goal knowing he was going to take some heavy knocks from the Ballymacnab forwards on his way back down. Conroy was hurt but fortunately for Granemore he was fit to continue.

Ballymacnab began to put plenty of numbers forward, but they really struggled to break through a well structured Granemore defence, and on the occasions they did find space to shoot they were regrettably wasteful and ended up kicking five wide in the first half.

Ballymacnab were certainly seeing more of the ball but they simply weren’t making their rivals pay, and Granemore went in at half time leading 0-06 to 0-04.

The Nab finally got their shooting boots on in the second half, two tidy scores from Gavin McParland and one from Damien McGeown turned things around and put Ballymacnab ahead just four minutes into the second half.

Barry Toner was introduced for Granemore at half time made a strong impact on the game and levelled things up again on the 41st minute.

Jason O’Neill helped his side take the lead when he showed great pace to meet Barry Toner’s pass before quickly turning on to his ever reliable left foot and striking the ball over from distance.

Granemore responded to an equalising point Gavin McParland’s by smashing the ball into Ballymacnab’s goal. Paudie Hollywood burst forward on the left hand side and fed the ball to Jason O’Neill who held his nerve quite admirably and put a powerful strike past Sean Hughes.

Rory Grugan responded brilliantly for the Nab and kicked three great scores consecutively to tie the game with five minutes to go.

Brian McCone fisted the ball over the bar to give Ballymacnab what looked like a match winning lead, and things got worse for Granemore when Jason O’Neill was sent off on the 58th minute.

Granemore went in to injury time trailing and one man short but they never lost hope, Christopher O’Connor levelled things up with his third point of the night.

Stunningly in the second minute of injury time Barry Toner brought every Granemore supporter to their feet with the match winning strike. Toner picked the ball up on the right and accurately knocked it over the bar.

Ballymacnab really tried to fight back in the dying seconds but Granemore put everything behind the ball to hold their lead and were successful with their efforts as the referee blew the full time whistle shortly after sending Jack Grugan off with a straight red card.

BALLYMACNAB: Sean Hughes; Chris Loughran, Ruari Gribben, Dominic McParland; Paudi Crilly, Kevin Beagan, Michael Beagan; Tony McKee, Pauric Gribben; Joe Gribben, Rory Grugan (0-04), Damien McGeown (0-01); Gavin McParland (0-03), Ryan Kennedy, Brian McCone (0-04).

No substitute scorers.

GRANEMORE: Keving Kelly; Rory McClelland, Darren carr, Colm Brown; Padraig Hollywood (0-01), Darren Hughes, Brendan Doyle; Tony McClelland, Kieran Toner; Shane Rafferty (0-01), Jason O’Neill (1-04), Finbar Conroy; Christopher O’Connor (0-03), Declan Doyle, Ryan Rafferty.

Substitute scorers: Barry Toner (0-02)

On Saturday evening past An Céide Lamh Dhearg met Croibh Rua in the Senior Hurling Championship for the first time ever and although the Camlough men give a good account of themselves they were no match for the Keady hurlers who were that little bit sharper on the night. The first five minutes saw Croibh Rua take the game to Keady and they took a well deserved lead, but soon after Keady got their first goal of the game when Stephen Renaghan broke away from his marker and coolly slotted the sloitar in the oppositions net. From here on it was one way traffic until a unnecessary foul by the Keady defence gave the Camlough men a chance for a goal and they duly obliged after another calamity of errors. This gave Croibh Rua renewed hope and they followed on with a few more minor scores before Lamh Dhearg restored order with another well taken goal by young Stephen Renaghan again. There would be no second chances as the Keady defence became more disciplined in the tackle while the mid fielders & forwards tagged on score after score and it soon became apparent that there would only be one outcome. When the referee called time the final score registered was 6-21 to 1.05 and although the Keady players were happy with the result, they surely went home knowing that they must preform so much better next time out. Praise must go to the Camlough men who battled hard through out while on the Keady side players like Dylan Mckenna; Stephen Renaghan; Gerard Enright; Liam McKee; Nathan Green; John Corvan all put in a good hours hurling. Special praise must go to 16yr old Dylan McKenna who playing in his first Senior Championship match was probably one of the better players on the field of play. As yet it is unknown who Keady will play in the Senior Final as Middletown & Cuchulainns played out a draw on Sunday evening and now must do it all again.
