All good competitive games in the SFC this weekend
Expect Ld to win by wont be by much
Glenavy I think could spring a surprise with a win
Ahoghill should have to much for the Musgrave men
Rossa could give casements a game but would expect the casements to pull through
The IFC is appealing to but with TNN and MG facing off should be a cracker heard all the duffins are back playing for MG so that's a big boost.

3 of the minors would probably have come on or one maybe would have started. 3/4 injuries including our 2 best defenders but to be honest it wouldn’t have mattered. They’re too young and inexperienced yet. Literally men against boys in some areas of the field tonight. It’ll be a couple of years before they develop physically to compete in championship. We would have needed our full team tonight and LD to have an off night.

We struggled past an under strength Rossa team and though we were 9 or 10 up at one stage I was glad to hear the final whistle. On today's performance we won't be any use to St Galls.

LD impressed me when they beat us a couple of weeks ago. Very strong physically, and Creggan put away a Cargin team handily enough on Friday night to suggest they are serious contenders too. Wide open this year as previously suggested, probably about six clubs thinking they have a chance if things go their way!

A bit optimistic there BS......think Cargin are struggling with way too many injuries to key personnel to make a realistic challenge.
Take a leap of faith to suggest Casement's, Ahoghill or StTeresa's can go all the way.
Creggan did the business in the O'Cahan cup but not as "handy" as you perceived. They did not look happy in the closing stages as a twelve man, and very under strength Cargin finished strong.
The reigning champs do need to improve and although the Johnnie's have focused on championship from the outset and may well make another final I think the Milltown Blues are the business again and may well reclaim the crown.

I would concur with CB, my sources said that it was a tight game, Cargin should have done better with an extra man, and Creggan should have done a lot better when they had 2 additional men.

Cargin still firmly in the mix, no one should suggest otherwise. But right now I'd see Creggan as the team to beat. Just one opinion!

No surprises over the weekend really, all the favs won, some handier than expected and others found things a little harder.. would expect tough games next time around and a possible shock or two..

Johnnies Lamhs Creggan Naomh Gall Cargin and Portglenone have all had good games v each other over the season, with no back door or second chance it’s all or nothing next day out!
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)
