Time Out - February 15: Sporting greats, Dates and a Quick Quiz Blitz to kick-start your day
The Irish News - Monday February 15 2010: Allianz National Football League Division Two: Armagh 2-19 Westmeath 0-8
A Stevie McDonnell-inspired Armagh steam-rolled poor Westmeath at Crossmaglen yesterday to open the Orchard County’s league account.
The Killeavy ace was on fire right from the start, pocketing 1-2 in the opening minutes, and ended with an impressive 1-9, all from play.
Armagh led 1-9 to 0-5 at the break and though the visitors restarted with a greater level of urgency, they had nothing to show for a brief period of pressure, during which Armagh ’keeper Philip McEvoy had to get down smartly to save a low drive from substitute Gavin Hoey.
Ten minutes into the second period, Ryan Henderson stretched the home side’s advantage and it was a matter of kicking points for fun thereafter.
