Greenfield Foods Senior Football Championship Round 1A

Scotstown 5-13 Doohamlet 2-12


Scotstown began their SFC title defence with a high-scoring win over Doohamlet in Clontibret. The holders made light of the absence of three county players to prove too strong for the 2018 IFC winners, with Conor McCarthy hitting 2-3 and Dermot McCrudden, Jamie McCarey and Micheál McCarville also finding the net. Goals from Jamie Walshe and the impressive Barry McBennett kept Doohamlet in touch, but Scotstown advanced to a derby with Truagh.

Greenfield Foods Senior Football Championship Round 1A

Truagh 4-15 Castleblayney 1-12


Truagh turned the tables on Castleblayney in this SFC opener in Clontibret, dominating the second half to cruise through. The sides were level at the end of a well-contested first half, but Truagh outscored the Faughs by 3-9 to 1-3 after the restart to make an impressive start to the campaign.

Christopher McKenna, Adam Treanor, Niall Coyle and Rory Treanor all hit the net for Truagh, who had Paudie McKenna influential throughout in the middle third. Captain and goal-scorer Mark Treanor did his best to inspire Blayney, but Truagh’s win set up a tilt at Scotstown in Round 2A.

Greenfield Foods Senior Football Championship Round 1A

Clontibret 2-14 Carrickmacross 0-20 (AET)


* Clontibret won 2-0 on penalties                                       


Clontibret made a winning start to the championship in Castleblayney, but only after their exciting clash with Carrickmacross became the first Monaghan SFC game to go to a penalty shoot-out. After Vincent Corey and Conor McManus had hit the net, Clontibret saw a five-point lead wiped out in the dying minutes of normal time and they also had the win within their reach during extra-time, only to be pegged back again by Carrick in a tense finish. Carrick were left to rue their poor efforts in the shoot-out, however, while Clontibret hailed Darren McDonnell for two penalty saves that helped his side through.

Clontibret will face Ballybay in Round 2A.


Clontibret: Darren McDonnell; C Doyle, Conor Boyle, L Savage; J Gormley, D Savage, C Greenan (0-1); F Hughes (0-1), K Lavelle; D Hughes (0-3f), M P O’Dowd (0-2), B Greenan; D Mone (0-1); V Corey (1-2), P Boyle (0-1).

Subs: R McGuigan for D Hughes (47 mins), C McManus (1-3, 1-0 pen, 0-2f) for D Savage, E McGuigan for Doyle (both 50), M Savage for L Savage (55), C Lavelle for K Lavelle (60 + 1).

Extra-time subs: Dean McDonnell for R McGuigan (inj., 6), Cormac Boyle for Mone (black card, 11).
