I would say in truth two poor enough games.

Exciting as they were, it was more for the scorelines than the standard.

Was it a shock for Faughs to win? Were they not big underdogs going into it?

Good highlights of yesterday's matches on the BBC website. Mark Sidebottom critical of both referees during the commentary.

Out of all the good points yesterday, Sidebottom/BBC had to include the incident with Watson and the corner back.

Two very enjoyable games, I thought Cushendall had the beating of St Johns when the half time whistle blew. St Johns took their chances from placed balls and fair play.

I thought Dunloy were well worth their victory.

If you were Jamie Bryson you would think there's a bit of editorial direction to do so but I think its just him, as a wee bit of controversy gets more hits and raises his own profile. Thats the media game. Stick to the Saffron Gael for the real story.

Thought St. John's got a few handy frees. The thing with Watson and the corner back was a bit of handbags. Nothing in it worth talking about. He can still take a score when he gets a chance. Pity the other Loughgiel forwards didn't support him. Dunloy had a far better spread of scores and more options up front and that was the difference.

No point being diplomatic.. I'd love to see a re run and do a free count.

Ah come on Sidebottom isnít one for raising his own profile in fairness, doesent have Twitter or Facebook profiles as far as I know and heís well enough known at this stage in Gaa circles.

Was it a shock for Faughs to win? Were they not big underdogs going into it?



I don't think it was a massive shock because there is a fair bit of talent in that carey squad and we all know that league form goes out the window come championship and i honestly think although st endas will start the final as massive favourites carey could well upset the odds

If the Faughs did get through St Endas surely it would be one of the first times the Antrim club wouldn't be the favourite for the Ulster Intermediate

Well if st endas won and your saying saying they would be favourites for Ulster then surely if carey beat them.then they would have to be favourites not that it would matter because being given a favourite tag does not win you anything  it guts passion desire work rate hunger and never giving up that wins you championships and I think that carey team showed all of the above on Saturday.

Being diplomatic as always, I'm sure skinny won't be the referee in the replay.

By the way. We'll done M...   Dunloy. Congrats.
