Senior Men

It was disappointment for our senior men on men on Friday night as they bowed out of this year’s championship, going down by two points to Clan na Gael, 0 - 13 to 0 - 11.

Clan’s opened the scoring in the second minute with a pointed free and it took five minutes for the Shane’s to reply with Paul O’Rourke equalising from a placed ball. The Lurgan side went ahead soon after with their second point of the game, again from a free, with Matthew Girvan hitting the first point for play in the fourteenth minute to tie the game again. The Shane’s then went ahead for the first time when Mark McCabe fired over, before Ciaran Mackin made it a two point game with a monster score with the outside of his left boot. A Connaire Mackin free increased the Camlough side’s advantage but this was quickly cancelled out by the Clan’s third point of the game, before a free from Paul O’Rourke and a 45 from Connaire Mackin saw the Shane’s go four points ahead. Two points in added on time at the end of the first-half, one from a free, saw the Clan’s reduce the deficit to just two at the break, 0 - 7 to 0 - 5.

The side’s swapped a point apiece in the opening exchanges of the second-half, with Paul O’Rourke on target for the Shane’s before the same player swung over his fourth point of the night following some great work from Connaire Mackin. The Shane’s now led by three but another point from a placed ball got the Clan’s back to within two and they reduced to the deficit to just one with almost twenty minutes of the second-half played. The Shane’s they had a goal chance when Eamon McCabe chased down a long ball and appeared to be upended by the Clan’s keeper but the referee waved away the penalty appeals and the Lurgan side travelled the length of the field to tie the game at nine points each. Paul O’Rourke put the Shane’s ahead again with a brilliantly worked score but this was quickly cancelled out by a Clan’s free, only for O’Rourke to reply for the Camlough side with a free and put them back in front. However, the lead didn’t last long as the Clan’s tied the game again with another placed ball with thirty minutes on the clock, and they then went ahead for the first time since the thirteenth minute of the game, with their twelfth point of the game, again from a free. They then sealed win with the last point of the game to leave the final score 0 - 13 to 0 - 11 in favour of the Clan’s.

Senior Ladies

Our senior ladies qualified for the championship semi-final following a comprehensive win over Crossmaglen on Saturday night, 10 - 9 to 2 - 13.

Cross made the much better start to the game and with just over five minutes gone they led 0 - 4 to no score before Sinead McDonnell opened the Shane’s account with a well taken point. The sides then swapped points with Blaithin Mackin pointing for the home side from a free, before points from Abbie McVerry and Mackin again left just one between the sides. Cross hit the next three points to restore their four point advantage but two frees from Blaithin Mackin kept the Shane’s in touch and the sides swapped a further point each before the break, Emma Kenny getting the Shane’s score, to leave the away side leading by two at half-time, 0 - 9 to 0 - 7.

The Shane’s reduced the deficit to just one in the opening minute of the second-half with half-time substitute Aimee Mackin pointing from close range before the same player raised the first green flag of the game to put the home side in front for the first time. Minutes later Sorcha McDonnell netted for the Shane’s again to leave five between the sides before Crossmaglen hit their first point of the second-half to keep them right in the game, but the Shane’s all but sealed their win in a five minute spell when Aimee Mackin goaled three times to leave the Camlough side firmly in control. Cross responded with a goal of their own but the Shane’s kept the scoreboard moving with a further two Aimee Mackin goals, a Blaithin Mackin goal and Aoibheann Jones chipping in with a well taken point. An eleventh point for Cross was quickly cancelled out by by another three-pointer from Aimee Mackin but to their credit the away team kept fighting to the final whistle, scoring a further goal and two points but it was the Shane’s who got the final score of the game when Aimee Mackin raised another green flag to leave the home side winners on a score-line of 10 - 9 to 2 - 13.

This was a brilliant all round display from the girls, right from the goalkeeper through to the corner-forwards. Each and everyone of them put in a tremendous performance and they will go into the championship semi-final against Armagh Harps full of confidence.

U17 Boys

Our U17 boys travelled to Silverbridge last week for their latest league game but despite putting in a great performance they were defeated by just a single point. The lads are in championship action on Monday night away to Ballyhegan. 

U16.5 Girls

Our U16.5 girls made the journey to Eire Óg last Monday night to take on the home side in the championship and returned home with the win, 5 - 12 to 3 - 5. The girls played some great football on the night and were fully deserving of their win. 

U15 Boys

Our U15 boy’s amalgamation of Patrick Rankins we’re in Crossmaglen on Thursday night for theit latest league game and despite dominating proceedings the game ended all-square. The young Rankins played some great attacking football but unfortunately their accuracy in front of goal wasn’t as good as it should have been.
