Craigbane made it two wins in two with a comfortable win over Magilligan on Friday night.


Craigbane 2-14
Magilligan 2-4

A goal from Ethan McLaughlin just prior to the first water break cut the Craigbane lead to a point 0-6 to 1-2.

For the next 15 minutes, it was all Craigbane with Christopher Lowry playing at full forward scoring every time he got possession.

At the interval Craigbane had a 1-8 to 1-2 interval lead, with their goal coming from full-back Oisin O'Donnell.

Just after Ethan McLaughlin slipped while in a scoring position, Cahir O’Kane got the second Craigbane goal.

Without key forwards Conor Logue and James Payne the Magilligan men did not have the power in attack to make a serious contest of it in the last 20, minutes, with the home team using their bench to good effect,
