Good luck to any hurling match under lights in Ballymena.  Ok for football
Not the small ball.  8:30 .... getting like la liga

To be fair, any time I have seen a game under the lights in Ballymena it has been good. The lights are a good standrad and dont think there are many better around for a club ground.

Genuinely only seen 1 Ballymena senior game there.  Hurling that is.  Seen a few football games there and even the Ballymena clubmen said it doesnít meet the hurling pitch lighting requirements which differ from football.

The Johnnies arenít a 5/1 shot against Loughgiel, I donít think.

Prices of Paddy Power bookmakers for senior and Intermediate games

Dunloy 1/50 vs Sarsfields 10/1    Dunloy 25+ (Even with a Reserve Team)
Loughgiel 1/8 vs St Johns 5/1      5/1 - bet of the season - get on (Loughgiel will be experimenting on Sunday with a win on the board and have already qualified for the Semis)
St Galls 1/3 vs Glenariffe 9/4       9/4 - tasty price - more of a 50/50 game
St Endas 4/7 vs Tir Na Og 6/4      6/4 - only a point separated the sides a few weeks ago - go with the value
Creggan 1/7 vs Rasharkin 4/1      Creggan comfortably
Clooney Gaels 1/2 vs Carey 13/8  Momentum with Clooney who will win this one comfortably

Yep would agree with the most but not sure the Johnnies will be concerned about this one, if the beat Rossa they qualify for the semis so i think this will be meaningless and both teams wont really care;
Glenariffe will be close V Galls and 9/4 really over priced here - Galls missing a couple of players due to red cards in semi;
Also Randalstown - both times they played Endas had injuries and back at full strength - I think this is the best bet of w/e @6/4;
Creggan should get the win but. Rasharkin @ 4/1 over priced - Cregan should win though but will be nothing more than 3 points in it - could be a suprise with a bit of luck ;
Clooney v Carey - drew last time out in league and beaten finalists last year this is a flip of a coin - Clooney looked good v Cmills but Carey are a different team come cship;

The Johnnies will have come away happy enough for todayís Ďchallengeí match, few things to work on, Loughgiel made it over the line alright but will have wanted to do it with more to spare, though Iíd say both teams are happy, though Rossa would love nothing else to ambush St Johns, but I doubt it will happen..

Carey took care of Clooney, who started brightly but were pegged back, Carey were decent with some solid displays, them and Creggan and us and St Endas should be tight semi finals.

Very impressed with Carey, they overcame a slow start and dominated the game from there on. I had thought Clooney would have been too much for them. Two great looking semi finals now in the Intermediate in 2 weeks time, hopefully be played as a double header. In the senior game I thought Loughgiel were comfortable enough winners and only for the Johnnies tagging on a late goal and point making it look closer, but neither side will be taking much from the game as both have a lot more in the tank.

It's looking like the SHC will be between Dunloy and Cushendall again this season. Loughgiel and St John's haven't the quality across the squads to match either of them at the minute. Knockout games are different but from what has been on show so far
Where Crookes is, there is light.

Not if they get drawn to meet each other in the semis!

Can someone clarify that it is open draw for semis?

It is an open draw but you cant be drawn against a team that has qualified from your group  :-X

Jeekers, if theres an a*se about face way to do something and complicate it we will surely find it!!

First in one group v second in the other would have made for a better spectacle in the group stages as well. But that would have made too much sense  ;D
