Ulster semi-finalists revealed as Leinster SFC gets underway
THE SEMI-FINAL line-up for the Ulster senior football championship has been revealed this afternoon with Killyclogher, Slaughtneil, Maghery and Kilcoo all safely advancing to the last four.
Mark Bradley’s sweet strike was the highlight as Tyrone champions Killyclogher made light work of Cargin at Healy Park. The hosts eventually ran out 2-10 to 1-8 winners with a late Cargin goal adding gloss to the scoreboard.
They’ll be joined in the semi-finals by Maghery as they survived a brave effort from Ramor United at the Athletics Grounds with a late flurry of points.
The Cavan champions led at the break but five unanswered points from the home side settled the contest on a 1-13 to 1-10 scoreline.
2014 Ulster champions Slaughtneil secured a five-point victory over Derrygonnelly Harps at Celtic Park. The Derry side advanced as 0-12 to 0-7 winners while Kilcoo booked their place in the semi-finals with a hard-fought win over Glenswilly.
