TEAM OF THE WEEK – SEMI FINALS
  1. Conor McGivern (Ballymacnab)

McGivern made two crucial saves at important times for Ballymacnab to keep their championship hopes alive.

2. Ciaran Connelly (Ballymacnab)

Gave a Man of the Match performance in the Nabs win over Granemore, working hard to force countless turnovers while getting forward to kick a point as well.

3. Ross Finn (Granemore)

Was given the impossible task of shadowing one of the form forwards in the county, Jack Grugan. Can hold his head up high with his performance holding the big full forward to 0-3 across 80 minutes of action.

4. Chris Crowley (Crossmaglen)

Part of a Crossmaglen defence that held the Maghery attack to just one score, a free, in the opening half and Crowley gave a good account of himself on Saturday evening.

5. Michael Beagan (Ballymacnab)

Gave a warrior like display at the back for Ballymacnab and their inspiration captain played the sweeper role to perfection. His high catch near the end of the game was one of the highlights.

6. Cormac Gribben (Ballymacnab)

Battled hard around the centre of the park to collect breaking balls while also getting forward to kick two important scores.

7. Paul Hughes (Crossmaglen)

Has yet to find his shooting boots this championship season but the wing half back is a constant threat on the counter attack while also committing to his defensive duties.

8. James Lavery (Maghery)

Was the one Maghery man that never gave up and ran himself into the ground when things were going against his side.

9. Brendan Boylan (Granemore)

Boylan can judge a kick out to perfection and his final catch to win the free that levelled the game was huge for Granemore.

10. Louis Hughes (Granemore)

The youngster had a great first season for Granemore and was a real attacking threat at wing half forward and on Saturday night.

11. Liam Doyle (Granemore)

Kept his side in it with his accuracy from the dead ball and his ability to strike the ball so cleaning off the wet deck was a sight to behold.

12. Pauric Gribben (Ballymacnab)

Hit an important score in extra time to settle his team and worked really hard around the middle of the field, constantly breaking forward.

13. Cian McConville (Crossmaglen)

Has shrugged off his ‘super-sub’ tag from last year and hit three points on Saturday night while also gaining the turnover that created their second goal.

14. Oisin O’Neill (Crossmaglen)

Top scored on the day for the Rangers with 2-1 and his early goal really set the tone while his second buried any hope of a Maghery revival.

15. Gavin McParland (Ballymacnab)

Will fell unlucky to have only ended with one score but McParland was a constant thorn in the side of the Granemore defence and his sheer strength caused havoc, particularly in the opening half.
