Team of the Week – Week Six

Caolan Hendron (Maghery)

The Maghery netminder was in incredible form in Sunday’s Senior Championship Final and had a big say in the destination of the Gerry Fegan trophy. Pulled off three superb saves to keep his clean sheet intact.

Brendan Haveron (Maghery)

Switched to corner back as expected to pick up the dangerous Cian McConville and excelled in the role. Actually outscored his man, holding him to two points while bursting forward to rattle the net in the opening minutes.

James Morgan (Crossmaglen)

The Crossmaglen captain left it all on the field on Sunday, but it just wasn’t to be. Like a lot of the Cross players, Morgan had a brilliant opening half, and perhaps should have had a goal but for Hendron’s heroics.

Stephen Cusack (Maghery)

Cusack has been the backbone of the Maghery teams that have defeated Cross three times in the championship in recent years. He was brilliant on Sunday once again, giving an inspirational performance while scoring three points.

Aaron Fox (Derrynoose)

Gave a strong showing in his sides semi final defeat to Middletown in the Senior Hurling Championship. Really brought the fight to the reigning Champions, while hitting 0-9, three of which came from play.

Sinead Burke (Armagh Harps)

Has been a driving force behind the Harps finally getting over the line and her performance on Saturday evening was no different. Gave Caroline O’Hanlon her fill of it and drove her side on all evening.

Kate Corvan (St Peter’s)

The Lurgan’s ladies side lost out in the Junior Championship Final to Craobh Ciaran by a single point and Corvan was unlucky to end up on losing team. Picked up the Player of the Match award despite not winning the game.

Rian O’Neill (Crossmaglen)

The younger of the O’Neill brothers continued his run of great performances in county finals with another strong display on Sunday. Forced to go to the middle of the field and won his battle with James Lavery.

Ben Crealey (Maghery)

An unexpected inclusion to the Maghery team, Crealey was sprung from the bench in the second period and gave an awesome performance. Was so crucial during the third quarter which ultimately won the game for his side.

Fionnuala McKenna (Armagh Harps)

The Armagh Harps captain was in inspired form on Saturday evening as she helped her side see off Carrickcruppen in the Senior Ladies Final. Performed a playmaking role from midfield and got on the scoresheet as well.

Oisin O’Neill (Crossmaglen)

For long periods in the first half of Sunday’s county final, Oisin O’Neill looked untouchable. His direct running style caused Maghery all types of problems and he scored five of his sides eleven first half points.

Catherine Marley (Lissummon)

Lissummon got their hands on the Intermediate Ladies trophy on Sunday afternoon and a lot of it was down to Marley. She picked up the Player of the Match award and contributed 1-6 of her sides tally.

Martin Moan (Middletown)

Always a constant threat in the Middletown full forward line, Moan was again the man on form when helping his side overcome Derrynoose last weekend, racking up a personal tally of 1-3 across the sixty minutes.

Aidan Forker (Maghery)

What a performance Forker gave in the county final. His all-round display was fantastic, but his second half goal was the standout highlight of the game. Showed all his qualities to burst past his man and rattle home the goal of the season. Man of the Match.

Maeve Lennon (Craobh Ciaran)

So much thanks has to go to young Lennon for Craobh Ciaran getting over the line in the Junior Ladies Final. She was the main score-getter for her side and it was Lennon that struck the all-important goal that won the game.
