Glenariff 2-16 Portaferry 1-13

Tight match, could have gone either way. Glenariff squandered a good 6 point start gained in the first ten minutes by stopping for the rest of the first half. Portaferry lead at half time by 2. Glenariff pulled away in the last ten mins for a 6 point win.

It seems everyone else is playing for second place Artie.

St Johns hammered last night!! the hurling bubble has burst big time at the Corrigan road ground.

hurling on the slide and the footballers doing well in the leagues.

Hows underage and senior hurling going in St Galls? Much young talent coming through? Are St Johns not top of Div 2 as far as I Know? Thanks Champ.
Didn't last long. ;D

Now waiting on the Johnnies' result....

Has the bubble still burst?

According to the county site is was down to player availability

Whats this about a Rossa substitute climbing the rails and having a go at a St Johns supporter (Teacher) on Sat night? I hear the Ref from Co Down(Kileif) ignored the whole incident completely and carried on.

Why should he have got in involved?

Was it due to player unavailability on our part? Thought thats why the games were moved to Tuesday?

According to county website:

The game was called off yesterday pm when due to exams, club committments, illness and injury following club games, it became apparent that a only a small squad would be able to travel.

Eddie McToal is a St. John's supporter again? How much is he being paid for that? Still unable to keep it buttoned too I see.

There was always a high risk that that game would be compromised. I love hurling as much as the next man but the thought of travelling 2-300 miles round trip on a wednesday night after a days works for a challenge game would really grind my gears and would only be made worse by the fact you'd be travelling with tired legs. Theres no way your head or body would be right for the game so as much as the county management feel they need "games" I would very much doubt that there would be anything to gain from such a venture.

The fact that the game was to be in Dublin you'd assume Antrim asked for it in the first place and you'd have hoped that the management and co board would have consulted with the players in terms of availability as you'd have needed a half day off work to get there and any of the students would have known well in advance about being tied up with exams.

There wouldn't be much learned from playing lads who just travelled 150 odd mile after a day at work plus having played a club game the night before.
