Crossmaglen Rangers 2-14 Mayobridge 0-13
Crossmaglen Rangers comfortably advanced to the semi-finals of the Ulster U21 Club Championship hosted by Creggan Kickhams GAC (Antrim) with a 2-14 to 0-13 win over Mayobridge.
It was the Down champions who scored the games opening point through their top scorer Corey Quinn (0-10) but it was Rangers top scorer and Man of the Match Oisin O’Neill (1-11) who grabbed control of the match from his midfield base to help Cross to a 2-10 to 0-6 half-time lead. Oisin contributed 1-8 in that opening half with the second goal coming from the boot of Ryan McKeever added to by points from Stephen Morris and Miceal McCabe.
Mayobridge, to their credit carried the fight to Cross in the second half but their limited attack as given little room to manoeuvre by a very resolute Rangers rearguard ably marshalled by centre back Aidan Rushe. With Cross keeper Tiernan McConville denying Mayobridge that vital 3 point kick start to really ignite their challenge to a Rangers side that had slipped into containment mode long before the final whistle. Three more points from the best player on view, Oisin and a second point for McCabe was Rangers contribution to the second half scoring which was won 7-4 by Mayobridge before a large crowd on an ideal day for football.
