In Sunday's final at the Athletic Grounds in Armagh they defeated Down champions Kilcoo 3-9 to 1-9.

Cross led by nine points at half time helped by goals from Oisin McConville and Aaron Kernan.

Kilcoo hit back with an Anthony Devlin goal early in the second half.

But Cross, who had two players sent off, made sure of the win with a late goal from Kyle Brennan.

McConville scored from a penalty after only four minutes following a foul on Stephen Kernan.

Only 40 seconds later Aaron Kernan added a second goal and five unanswered points from Cross left Kilcoo trailing by 11.

But the Down side fought their way back into the game in the second half and Anthony Devlin's 41st minute goal gave them fresh hope.

Michael McNamee was sent off for striking an opponent and Darragh O'Hanlon's subsequent point left only three between the sides.

But that was as good as it got for Kilcoo as Cross replied with scores from McConville and Martin Ahern.

Despite having star forward Jamie Clarke sent off for a second bookable offence, Cross ran out six point winners helped by a late insurance goal scored by Kyle Brennan.

The reigning all-Ireland champions will continue the defence of their crown in the New Year when they face Connacht champions St Brigid's in the semi-finals.
