Craigbane march on

Derry champions Craigbane remain on course for their second Ulster Club Intermediate football title following a handsome eight-point win over Monaghan title-holders Carrickmacross in yesterday’s semi-final at Healy Park, Omagh.

A David Lowry goal proved instrumental in helping Craigbane to a 1-14 to 0-9 win which sets up an intriguing decider against Culloville.

The Armagh representatives, managed by former All-Ireland winner John McEntee, were taken to extra-time by a gallant All Saints side in yesterday’s other semi-final before winning by the narrowest of margins (2-11 to 1-12).

In the Ulster Club Junior Football championship semi-finals, Derrytresk beat Eire Og (Armagh) while Monaghan champions Cremartin beat Donegal champions Burt by 1-8 to 0-4.

Tyrone standard-bearers Derrytresk benefited from two cracking goals by Niall Gavin as they cantered to their 2-12 to 0-3 over a beleaguered Eire Og side and a Cremartin goal at a key stage proved the platform for their triumph over a Burt side that had entered the fray imbued with confidence.
