Before 9,670 spectators the Down champions dug deep in extra-time as goals from Ryan Johnston and Paul Devlin, coupled with the dismissal of Stephen Kernan for Rangers, helped Kilcoo to a semi-final date with Ballinderry Shamrocks next Sunday.

Kilcoo led by 0-5 to 0-2 at half-time in normal time, and although they lost Daryl Branigan through a red card they continued to stay in front, with Devlin netting a penalty goal.

However, Crossmaglen responded with a Tony Kernan goal and a Martin Ahern point forcing extra-time.

Rangers couldn't keep going in extra-time, as Kilcoo powered their way to a semi-final date.

Reigning All-Ireland Club SFC Champions St Brigid's had a comfortable 22-point win over Leitrim's St Mary's at Carrick on Shannon, with a 5-15 to 1-5 victory this afternoon.

The Kiltoom outfit were never troubled as they stormed to victory, holding a 1-10 to 0-1 interval lead with Frankie Dolan netting an eighth minute goal.

Senan Kilbride excelled for the eventual winners, who added further goals from Padraig Kelly, Karol Mannion, Richir Blaine and David O'Connor on the restart.

Newly crowned Mayo champions Castlebar Mitchels upset the odds to claim a 2-8 to 1-10 win over former All-Ireland Club Champions Corofin this afternoon.

Goals from Neil Lydon and Richie Feeney in the opening half helped Mitchels to a 2-4 to 1-5 interval lead, with Gary Sice netting Corofin's goal.

In Leinster, newly crowned Dublin Champions St Vincent's booked their place in the Leinster Club semi-finals, following an 0-11 to 0-9 quarter-final win over St. Lomans, Mullingar at Cusack Park.

Vincent's were reduced to 14 men after just six minutes, following the controversial dismissal of their captain Ger Brennan on a straight red card, after an off-the-ball incident with Loman's forward Kelvin Reilly.

Tommy Conroy's side led by 0-6 to 0-4 at half-time with top-scorer Tomás Quinn scoring three of his seven points in the opening half.

Scores were at a premium in the third quarter, as both sides struggled in front of the posts with Vincents registering three wides during this spell, while their Westmeath counterparts had two.

Loman's pushed 0-7 to 0-6 ahead by the 45th minute, with John Heslin impressive.

A second Shane Dempsey point handing Loman's the lead after a superb save by Stephen Gallagher from a Dorney goal shot at the opposite end.

St Vincent's eventually broke their second-half scoring deadlock in the 48th minute following a Quinn point, and although Loman's regained the lead following a second Reilly point, Quinn ensured a grandstand finish as he tied the game for the sixth time.

Quinn continued to impress late on, with back-to-back points ensuring a late 0-10 to 0-8 lead.

Although Heslin bagged his fourth point to cut the gap to the minimum, Vincent's held on for victory, with Ruairi Treanor claiming a late insurance score.

Vincent's will face Summerhill in the semi-final, after the Meath outfit overcame Louth's Newtown Blues by 2-13 to 1-13 in Drogheda.

A Brian Kermode goal ensured Blues got off to the perfect start, but a 20th minute Adrian Kenny goal edged Summerhill ahead.

However, Newtown Blues reclaimed the lead at the interval as points from Colm Judge and Robert Carr edged them three points clear at the interval.

A trio of Michael Byrne points edged Summerhill ahead, with a late Paul Rispin goal sealing the issue.

Moorefield will face either Portlaoise and Longford Slashers in the semi-final, following a win over Wexford's St Martin's by 2-13 to 0-4 at Wexford Park.

Martin's led by 0-3 to 0-2 early on, but could only manage one point in the closing 42 minutes.

A Patrick Murray goal helped Moorefield to a 1-5 to 0-3 interval lead, with David Whyte bagging the second goal for the Kildare champions inside 10 minutes of the restart.
