Another scorekeeping farce tonight in Downpatrick. No scoreboard available which is surely unacceptable at ACL 1. Rostrevor scored a late goal, which spectators and presumably players assumed brought the sides level. Downpatrick then scored a point, putting them one point ahead in injury time. Rostrevor rushed the kick out, looking for a draw, but the ball was turned over and Downpatrick scored the final free, to win by two points. No argument there, they were the better team on the night, aided by some inexplicable decisions by the Rostrevor management.
But on the Down GAA site, Downpatrick are recorded as winning by one point, which meant that Rostrevor needn't have rushed the kick-out, + could have played out time for a draw, which would have suited us well.

These things happen, you say, except that the same thing happened in our championship match vs Bryansford in Ballymartin. Bryansford scored a late goal to even the match, both on the scoreboard and to the count of spectators; but the refs tally was different; apparently Bryansford were still one point behind. They went one to score 3 more points to win by two in the end

I understand similar confusion occurred in a minor championship between Burren + Kilcoo.

Surely it's not beyond the officials to keep an eye on the scoreboard and ensure it is correct, as it affects the attitude of the players and the ultimate result

are the bridge a year off challenging ? They should have the beating of Burren as long as they remember its not over till the 60 has been played, they are a team on an upward curve and will pose a serious challenge to the magpies but its probably just too soon. As for the CPN . its POINTless them even showing up for the semi.

Two great games in Castlewellan yesterday. Harps and Hoops contested a very good game which the harps eventually came out on top of and are into to the minor final. Great to see a new team competing. Probably the lift Ballyholland need. RGU werenít far off, think Ballyhollands strength from the bench saw them through.
The senior game was great also, with Loghinisland pushing the point right to the word . Will be a great addition to division 1 next year. Roll on the semis

The big 4 to battle it out
I knew they would keep the so called big 2 apart
Interesting few weeks ahead. If any team can take the magpies itís us
We do not fear them unlike our noisy neighbours

You could only applaud Mickey Lindens point yesterday, a joy to see. Some going from Mayobridge to win two reserve titles.
The Point will crap themselves again

Could mayobridge get the hat-trick and scoop the big one? Best placed to put it up to the magpies IMO. Would be some going. Have to agree with Charlie Tully....can't see CPN giving kilcoo any trouble. In truth kilcoo only get going at this time of year

fancy a bridge v kilcoo final. can't see the point getting within 5/6pts of kilcoo and just have a sneaky feeling that the bridge will beat burren and then give kilcoo their fill of it in the final.

We will be up against it no doubt against Kilcoo and if truth be told I think itís the hardest draw we could have gotten and with injuries now stacking up I just think it will be to much for our team. We have picked up another few injuries and just havenít got the squad Kilcoo have.
Burren and Mayobridge will be a tight game but I just think Burren will have enough especially now with O Hare and Toner back on board. It would be a better spectacle if Mayobridge did he to the final as they may put it upto Kilcoo better than Burren. Best 4 teams in Down left in the competition

Bridge v Burren to hard to call and wont be much in it...maybe slightly favour Burren but only slighty...Kilcoo will walk the other semi final, they are miles ahead of the rest with the Bridge and Burren making up the top 3 sides in the county...take your pick for the 4th best at the min, they are all at a similar level to the other.

The bookies donít play in the semis. 2 good matches in store I reckon. All four teams like to play football with Kilcoo probably the most defensive. And thatís not a criticism by the way
