Crossmaglen 0-14 Sarsfields 2-10

Yes the scoreline is correct. Sarsfields have beaten the mighty Cross in their own back yard. Michael Stevenson was the star man scoring 1-08, whilst Neil McCann scored the second goal.

Sarsfields managed to build on their first win against Carrickcruppen last Friday in what was probably one of their best performances of the season, and secured two vital points to better their chances of surviving the relegation battle. The game started fairly slowly for both sides; the first score coming from Michael Stevenson in the fourth minute after a free kick dropped short into his hands. The sides traded points for the first fifteen minutes. Neil McCann did well to win a 50/50 ball in full forward, with Michael in support to slot the ball over the bar. The Sarsfields defence was holding up well enough, but a few mistakes allowed Cross to quickly reply with a few pointed frees.
