December 05, 2021

Armagh star Conor Turbitt finished with 0-4 for Clann Éireann against Creggan

Clann Éireann edged an epic extra time battle with Creggan this afternoon at Corrigan Park to move into the Ulster club SFC semi-finals.

It finished 2-14 to 0-17 after 80 minutes at Corrigan Park, where Daniel Magee’s goal in the first-half of extra time proved decisive in the Armagh champions’ victory.

It was Creggan that had dominated large portions of the opening half in west Belfast to lead by 0-8 to 0-2 at half-time and Kevin Small’s point would have them seven to the good early in the restart.

Clann Éireann battled back and got level just before the water break when Ruairi McDonald’s well taken goal made it 0-9 to 1-6.

Creggan got in front again and had the one-point lead in injury-time when McDonald fired over a golden goal opportunity at the other end that sent the game into extra time at 0-12 to 1-9.

Magee’s strike five minutes halfway through the first-half of extra time proved too much for the home side to recover from as Clann Éireann advanced at their expense.
