Cargin make last four

By John Campbell

Cargin marched into the semi-final of the Antrim Senior Football Championship thanks to a 2-11 to 1-8 victory over Lamh Dhearg at St Paul's last night.

The victors recovered from an early setback when Paddy Cunningham stroked home a penalty after four minutes.

However, the Toome side gradually took control and led by 0-5 to 1-1 after 26 minutes before Tomas McCann scored a magnificent goal. Their second goal arrived three minutes later from Paul McCann who helped the Cargin side into a 2-7 to 1-3 lead at the break.

The Belfast cub rallied in the second period and cut the gap back to four but they were unable to get any closer.

They must wait to find out who their semi-final opponents will be as a last gasp goal from Ronan McGrady rescued a 2-9 to 0-15 draw for St Brigid's against Creggan. The sides will replay at Ahoghill on Wednesday night.

Defending champions St Gall's are also into the last four as they held off a spirited Moneyglass challenge to score a 0-14 to 1-6 win. They will meet St Paul's in the semi-final

In Armagh, Cullyhanna and Granemore advanced with wins while Pearse Og scored a convincing win over Dromintee.

Ballymacnab defeated Culloville Blues, 1-17 to 1-11, while in the last game, Maghery edged out Killeavy in a close game, 1-9 to 0-9.

In last night's Derry Senior Hurling Championship final, Slaughtneil were victorious as they defeated Ballinascreen, 4-13 to 2-11.
