Division 1A – Madden 3-14 Killeavy 1-10
Madden climbed to the top of the Division 1A table with a 10-point victory over Killeavy on Friday evening.
Goals from Conor Grimley and Niall Smith (2) put Killeavy to the sword as Madden dominated from start to finish.
Killeavy opened the scoring through a Ronan McGuinness free, but Madden stormed ahead with five on the trot.
Eoin and Conor Grimley, Darragh McMullan, Patrick Carr and Joe Sheridan all scored for the hosts.
Madden shot further ahead with a Conor Grimley goal while Miceal McNamee closed the gap before the break with Madden in front 1-5 to 0-4.
McNamee and Conor Grimley traded scores at the start of the second half before Madden pulled nine clear.
Shea Vallely and Grimley pointed before Niall Smith rattled the back of the net seven minutes after the turnaround.
Smith hit the net for the second time before Paul Quinn notched a late consolation goal for Killeavy, but the result was beyond doubt at that stage.
Armagh Harps 1-14 Mullaghbawn 1-14
Armagh Harps and Mullaghbawn played out an even draw in Abbey Park on Friday evening, finishing 1-14 apiece.
The Harps opened the scoring in the first minute with a Ryan McKeown goal to give them the perfect start.
By the 12th minute the hosts led 1-03 to 0-3, with Tadhg Grimley and James McCoy raising white flags and Eddie English replying for Mullaghbawn.
Eoin Fields and Declan McKenna stretched the Harps lead but three scores in as many minutes from the visitors left the half time score 1-05 to 0-6.
A McCoy free stretched Harps lead before a black card for Tom O’Kane gave the visitors impetus.
They fired off 1-03 in a matter of minutes to lead by three. To their credit, the Harps rallied to get back on level terms.
Points from Luke McKeever, Marty McCoy, Grimley and Fields levelled the game with ten minutes remaining.
The open affair was now end to end and Harps were punished for some errant finishing when the south Armagh men went two in front.
However, Pascal Canavan’s side continued to press and were rewarded with scores from O’Kane and James McCoy to earn a draw.
