I'd say Corrigan next Saturday but who knows. LD a seasoned team, a good outfit, well coached and know what theyre about....but we showed them far too much respect today, stood off them and allowed them to dictate the pace of the game. We played very average,  still scored 3 -10, but we are a much better team than what we showed today. If we bring our A game to the replay we can win this because tbh we wuz very middin today!

Cargin through - looked to be easy enough I think.

Intermediate final moneyglass v aldergrove and junior Lisburn v ardoyne

LD won that game about 4 times, how they lost it is a mystery. I can't even put it down to Casements Character as I thought it was LD thinking they had the job done. Casements will be very disappointed with their performance for sure, especially when you consider how they approached both St Johns games. On another note the ref was so poor. McKeevers catch that led to the gl, as obvious a foul as you will see, using your knee to fetch, planting it on a mans back for leverage is a foul foul foul every time. Fitzsimmons hit on McKeever, clear yellow. Mc Keever hadn't the ball, he had off loaded it. Such basics he totally unaware of.
St Galls V Cargin, a totally dominant display from Cargin. Only winning by five will be the question being asked. Grt to see Kevin O Boyle back playing again and hopefully back in an Antrim jersey. They looked v organised and physical. St Galls didn't turn up or weren't allowed to turn up. Hard to see where they go from here. There more senior players were not at the races. The ref did a good job, consistent and blew the tackles that were needed.

BTW when is the replay?

At this exact minute county website says Ahoghill 7.45pm. But that arrangement didnt stick last time so good chance it wont be there on Thursday. Thats my guess anyway.

No doubt the city clubs will continue to cry about playing consecutive games up the country.  I was hoping to see Colaiste Feirste as last reports were positive

Just do whatever is fair. As Memory Man correctly stated, there needs to be integrity in sport or its worthless.

Strong rumours floating around that LD want to take this to the Dub under lights.

No doubt that Kevin Murray will be working away in the background to make sure it happens,
