- Malachy Mackin (St Patrick’s)
Seems to be settling into his new position after a shaky start two weeks ago against Pearse Ogs. Brilliantly got his hand to what looked a certain Killeavy point while making a fine save from the rebound shot.
2. Sean Sutton (Pearse Ogs)
Has made the number 2 jersey his own this year and has excelled in his corner back role and his performance against Culloville on Saturday was no different.
3. Ciaran McKeever (St Patrick’s)
The former county captain played in a sweeper role for Cullyhanna to great effect, bursting out of defence to drive his team forward several times as St Patrick’s dominated their contest against Killeavy.
4. Sean Lynch (Ballymacnab)
Was the only bright spark in a horrible first 15 minutes for the Nab and continued his good work in the second half forcing several turnovers to bring his side back into contention.
5. Joe McElroy (Armagh Harps)
Struck the goal that put the Harps in control of the contest just after half time and scored a great individual point in the first half. Constantly drove his team on with his powerful runs from deep.
6. Chris Rafferty (Pearse Ogs)
The veteran has been outstanding all season for the Ogs and his early goal was crucial for his side gaining maximum points on Saturday.
7. Barry McConville (St Patrick’s)
Set the tone for the game with his physical presence around the centre of the park while also attacking whenever the chance presented itself. Always an option for kick outs.
8. Ben Crealey
Was brilliant in the middle of the field in Maghery’s 13 point win over Dromintee to see them through to the quarter final stages.
9. Rian O’Neill (Crossmaglen)
Unplayable in the first 15 minutes against Ballymacnab and it was his pass that sent through Oisin O’Neill to get Cross off to a flyer with a goal after 10 seconds.
10. Kyle Morgan (Madden)
Earned the man of the match award in his sides’ victory over Annaghmore, hitting four points from open play.
11. Oisin O’Neill (Crossmaglen)
Top scored on the day for the Rangers with 1-4 and tormented the Ballymacnab defence with his strength and powerful runs.
12. Kieran Doyle (Granemore)
Doyle was in brilliant form during his team’s five point victory over St Peter’s on Sunday with his work rate all over the pitch a key aspect of Granemore’s play.
13. Conor Cullen (Annaghmore)
Kept Annaghmore in touch against Madden with his accurate free taking and his three points at the beginning of the second half brought his team back into the game.
14. Aidan Forker (Maghery)
Demonstrated his versatility for his county this year and done likewise on Saturday evening when stationed at the edge of the square. Caused Dromintee serious problems all night long.
15. Paddy Reel (Silverbridge)
Struck the all important goal for Silverbridge in their two point win over Armagh Harps while also adding four points to his personal tally.
