Crossmaglen 4-13 Sarsfields 1-13
Sarsfields were beaten by nine points in Crossmaglen today. On the face of it a defeat of this magnitude isn't too good, but putting it into perspective, scoring 1-13 against the All Ireland Club Champions is not all bad. Early on it looked ominous when Cross went ahead 2-03 to no score. As half time approached it was 4-06 to 0-03, the difference being the clinical nature in which the home side was taking their scores. Sarsfields were winning good possession but failing to convert it into scores. An individual goal from Eimeíd Murray put a better look on the scoreboard just before half time.
In the second half the match was more even. Sarsfields hit ten points against seven from Crossmaglen and some great defensive work cleared a few Crossmaglen goal chances on the line. At the death Richie Stevenson was unlucky to see a goal chance go over the bar.
