Greenfield Foods Senior Football Championship Round 2A

Magheracloone 0-15 Ballybay 0-14                                     2/9/17


Magheracloone booked their place in the SFC semi-finals when they put a slow start behind them to pip Ballybay in Clontibret last Saturday. Ballybay raced into a four-point lead, with Paul Finlay leading the scoring, but a string of scores from Tommy Freeman either side of half-time turned it in favour of Magheracloone. Ballybay rallied to draw level via a Christopher McGuinness brace late on, but a tenth point of the game from Freeman earned Magheracloone their third win of the championship.

Scotstown 1-18 Latton 1-17                                                  2/9/17


The second game in Clontibret saw Scotstown also book a semi-final place with a one-point win; theirs at the expense of Latton. Kieran Hughes was to the fore as Scotstown held the edge in the first half, helped by a goal from Ross McKenna, but Latton came back strongly, with Hugh McElroy leading their scoring. The veteran forward’s penalty helped Latton move ahead, but late points from McKenna and Shane Carey earned Scotstown an exciting win that moves the holders into the last four once again.

Castleblayney 1-10 Monaghan Harps 0-10                        2/9/17


Castleblayney kept their SFC hopes alive when they edged out Monaghan Harps in a tense, low-scoring qualifier in Inniskeen on Saturday. An early goal from Peter Treanor helped Blayney build up a six-point lead and although the Harps rallied before the interval, the Faughs held them at arm’s length throughout the second half, with Dermot Malone leading the scoring from frees.
