All-Ireland Football Semi-Final

Vincent’s Victors Against Cross
St. Vincent beat Crossmaglen 2-9 to 0-11 in Sunday’s AIB All-Ireland Club semi-final at Navan played on 24 Feb 2008.
Brian Maloney’s second-minute goal and Tomas Quinn’s strike helped the Dublin outfit lead 2-8 to 0-4 at half-time.
Helped by the breeze, Cross cut the lead in the second half but they never really looked like getting on terms.
St Vincent’s set up a decider against Nemo Rangers with a degree of comfort despite scoring one second-half point.
Crossmaglen hit five points without reply in the final 20 minutes of the match but without a goal, they were never scoring points at a fast enough rate to get back on terms.
