Middletown 4-33 Craobh Rua 0-8

Middletown continued their winning streak with their second win of the campaign, easing past Craobh Rua.

It was a huge step up for the Camlough men, who are still finding their feet at the senior grade.

They’ll hope to remain in the hunt for a last four spot, but must beat Derrynoose, who have a game in hand, in the next round.
