Middleton face Cushendall after they shock Lisbellaw


By Staff Reporter

Armagh title-holders Middletown earned a daunting 'reward' following their surprise 0-19 to 2-10 Ulster senior hurling club championship quarter-final victory over Fermanagh champions Lisbellaw yesterday when it was confirmed that they will now meet Antrim kingpins Cushendall in the semi-finals next Sunday at Owenbeg.

Middletown carved out their win the hard way after having Sean Toal and Nathan Curry (above) sent off, surviving a late penalty scare and clearing a shot off the line in injury-time.

Kickhams Creggan may have harboured reservations in relation to their prospects against Castleblayney in the Ulster Intermediate club quarter-finals since a number of their players had an important football commitment on Friday night but their fears proved groundless as they strolled to a 4-15 to 0-13 victory with Conor Small grabbing three goals.

Also in the Intermediate series, Derry side Na Magha were outgunned by Carryduff by 1-19 to 1-8 while Keady suffered a setback when they lost to Eire Og (Carrickmore) 1-18 to 0-16.
