Social Media Reaction – Creggan Cargin thriller

Conor Small

Conor Small

Kevin Madden’s Creggan side showed a great deal of character to fight back and draw with Cargin in the Antrim Senior Football Championship (1-12 to 2-9).

Cargin, the county champions, were favourites to win this game, and they looked on course to do so thanks to a great performance in the first half. Goals from Ciaran Close and Michael Clarke gave them a seven point lead, and things didn’t look good for Creggan.

Conor Small did manage to close the gap though, and at half time Creggan trailed by 2-6 to 1-5.

Small almost got a goal early in the second half, and then Mark Dougan and Tomas McCann did find the target to put pressure on the county champions. Creggan got the chance to equalise in injury time, and Tomas McCann took it to leave the final score at 1-12 to 2-9.

The replay is due to take place this Saturday in Ahoghill at 6pm.
