Casements hanging in there still after tonights result. Away to Creggan next week a tougher assignment. Still a battle on to make the quarter finals where the real action starts. Ahoghill gave us plenty to think about but they are no bad team to be fair.  They were missing a few tonight that would not have done their cause any harm, but thats championship, every team will have a few players missing for one reason or another - thats where the strength of your panel counts.

If youíre only playing one sport youíve better chance to recharge the batteries...

Johnnies had three or four lads rested tonight and 4 lads that hurled on Sunday playing tonight. Creggan will be in same boat Galls also, Rossa probably the most as do Dunloy! Itís a tighter season/championship this year for dual clubs
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Yeah it was the same for ourselves last night. A few lads left off the panel after sundays hurling match against Ballycastle plus with a big game v Rossa on Sunday in the hurling.

Really tight game last night between ourselves and Glenravel. Eamon Fyfe is a fantastic footballer, a real classy player for Glenravel. He caused us all sorts of problems and his fielding for the mark was brilliant.

We got a goal when it was 0-08 to 1-06 and it was the games turning point as we never fell behind again.

Leaves the last games very interesting. Glenravel need to beat Moneyglass, we need to beat Glenavy and points difference will be in play. All we need to ensure is that we win regardless of the other results.
hurl like f**k boi!
