heard 2 or 3 different venues on the way home for that replay. between colaiste feirste, Ballymena for a weds night and then our own pitch this weekend.

Either way St johns will yet again be kicking themselves they didn't get it over the line. Fair play to Cdall as they looked dead and buried but they got the draw at the end. It was a game that went one way and then back again esp in the first half. Cdall were well in control and then St Johns hit 6 unanswered scores to get back in it again.

As for our game, thank god its over. I swear you dont need anymore games like that in a season lol

i wont lie, i was very quietly confident we would get the job done this time. last year was a real learning curve for our team and Lgiel taught them a lesson that day. It was made harder work than we needed to at the end up as with 4 points to the good we should of seen that game out. But fair dues to Lgiel, they could of got a goal at the end up.

a tough game and a good contest between the teams.

Brendan McTaggart seems to think its next Sunday at 1pm in Dunloy.

Big difference in Dunloy conditioning this year - last year there were a few light boys - this year  they have become men. Loughgiel need to say goodbye to their All Ireland generation and move on.

i had heard that as well from a few people that Lgiel need to have a clear out and allow that good group of minors to blend in. they need time to bed in and it could take a few years but they will come good.

Still think Liam Watson has a place to play for. he hurled well in at 14 and was a real handful in there. hit a peace of a point in front of us that was top drawer.

Our lads have improved from last year and its showing in their physical shape now. still a lot more to come from them all.
hurl like f**k boi!

Found both games really negative yesterday with all 4 teams playing some form of sweeper system. We got 2 goals, one from the worst poc out I've ever seen. So across 2 matches only really 1 goal created and scored from good open play. With the quality of forwards on show you'd have expected more goals than that. Dunloy's to loose at this stage...

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.
