James Carragher (St Patrick’s)

Pulled off a great save in the second half to halt the Pearse Og comeback as Cullyhanna qualified for the IFC final.

Shea Harvey (Keady)

Another superb display by Harvey as he constantly drove Keady forward in their brilliant semi-final display.

Peter Lappin (Madden)

Lappin was a real leader in the Madden defence and won numerous turnovers as they put it up to Crossmaglen.

Sean Og Irwin (St Patrick’s)

Irwin was touch-tight on James Freeman the whole way through the game as was excellent in the Cullyhanna defence.

Daniel McDonald (St Paul’s)

Keady found it very hard to curtail McDonald’s booming runs forward and he finished the game with 0-2.

Callum O’Neill (Clan na Gael)

Perhaps didn’t have his best day but came good when Clans needed him. His score at the start of the second half of extra time was hugely important.

James King (Keady)

An all-action display from the Keady wing half back as he constantly drove his team forward against St Paul’s.

Sean McCarthy (Clann Eireann)

Picked up Clan na Gael dangerman Shane McPartlan at midfield and stuck to his job diligently.

Oisin O’Neill (Crossmaglen)

Another sublime performance from Oisin O’Neill who kicked 0-5 from midfield and looked unstoppable at times.

Stefan Campbell (Clan na Gael)

Stepped up when all seemed lost for Clan na Gael and Campbell finished the night with 0-14 as the Clans saw off their rivals.

Rian O’Neill (Crossmaglen)

Kicked some awesome scores for the Rangers and they shook off the Madden challenge and finished with 0-4 (0-3 from play).

Rhys Stevens (Pearse Og)

Right from the very start, Stevens was a thorn in Cullyhanna’s side, and he was the main attacking threat for the Ogs.

Aidan Nugent (St Patrick’s)

Once again top scored for St Patrick’s with 0-6 as they made their way to the Intermediate decider.

Andrew Murnin (St Paul’s)

Hit a hattrick inside a ten-minute spell, and could have had a fourth, in an awesome display for his team.

Tomas Galvin (Keady)

Galvin ran riot for Simon McGeary’s side, scoring a goal and setting up another. Galvin finished with 1-3 to his name.
