MAGHERY DENIED CROSSMAGLEN the Armagh three-in-a-row after scoring four goals in today’s senior football final.

Finnian Moriarty’s side ran out 4-9 to 0-17 victors over the kingpins of Armagh at the Athletic Grounds.

Incredibly, it was just Crossmaglen’s second defeat from 40 county, provincial and All-Ireland finals they appeared in since 1996. Their last loss in a championship final arrived against Kilmacud Crokes in 2009. 

Maghery struck the net in the opening half through goals from Brendan Haveron and Brian Fox, but Oisin O’Neill’s five-point haul left Crossmaglen ahead by 0-11 to 2-3 at the interval.

Goals from Aidan Forker and Ronan Lappin left Maghery six ahead by the second water break and they powered home from there.

Jerome Johnston grabbed the goal for the All-Ireland finalists, who had Paul Devlin black carded in the second-half but never looked like losing.
