Cillian Marron’s last-gasp point sent Corduff into the Ulster intermediate club football championship final as the Monaghan champions beat Castlerahan 0-9 to 1-5 at Crossmaglen.

The sides were level heading into injury time and extra time looked highly conceivable until Corduff led for the first time right at the death.

Castlerahan started impressively with Padraig McGahern finding the net after just 30 seconds. Five minutes later Stephen Cooney added a point and suddenly the Cavan champions were four points clear.

John McEnaney and Oisin O’Connell subsequently traded a point each as Castlerahan led 1-2 to 0-4 at half-time.

Corduff were down to 14 men three minutes into the second half when John McEnaney was sent off. 12 minutes later Oisin Kiernan stretched Castlerahan’s lead to two points.
