Of course Dunloy are not proceeding to a County football final without a chance.
But they really need to up the ante as their form in just getting the better of an out of sorts under strength Creggan or will not be enough.

Cargin have been there and done that and arguably game moved up a gear in the past couple of years.

Cargin will go in as hot favourites and those who look forward to upset put your money down for a good return

So with the notable exception of Conhuir Johnston (who got a few minutes game time) and Eunan Quinn are the only players left in pursuit of a senior championship medal from the county squad.......

Quote from: barnish oggie on September 22, 2023, 10:02:05 PMFully deserved win for Dunloy.

Watching them in full flow is a great spectacle.

Energy, movement, ability and belief, in that first half once they got the first goal you cutis tell they were hungry for more.

Coby could have taken an easy point at a stage but wanted that 3rd goal.

However, if they meet Cargin in the final, they won't let them run like that.

PG1 were too nice, there were no cynical foul, no hauling off the ball.

Cargin know the dark arts, as well as being able to play football so will be a much tougher opposition.

(Assuming it is Cargin in the final unless Lavey can surprise us all though!!)

PG1 didn't get going until they had to go for it in the last few minutes and nearly got a goal or two that would have pulled it out of the bag.

They didn't look like they had a goal in them until that stage, something I think that they have lacked in previous years, a forward that you know can get you a goal.

A lot of questions to answer after that performance.

Lacking in intensity, you'd have thought it was a league game at the end of the year, with players trying to save themselves, instead of it being a championship semi final.

Back to the drawing board for PG1 for next year.

Felt for the PG1 supporters around me, hard to take yet another semi final defeat.

Agree.....although PG1 believe they are on a par with those who are well used to dining at the top table the harsh reality was written large again tonight.
They were poor against L Dhearg and not much better again against Cuchullian's....

Cargin may well be asked similar questions on Sunday but although the underdogs will have a large following R D's men are certainly "the old dogs for the hard road" and lessons have been well learned (I hope)....

Having lost out in the finals of back to back minor championships to Cargin in the past few years  does anybody know how many St Brigid's lads from that era have stepped up to their senior team.
I would guess that Cargin have in the region of 70/80% included in the senior panel now.

Rossa usually don't even qualify out of their group. They did this year and got beat by Derry blow ins  ;D
In all seriousness, Rossa given the players they have have underperformed for years, particularly the past few years. Under achievers.

I think they lost a few players this year to other clubs.

Rossa did beat Cargin in the 'group stages' last year, but none of the other semi finalists can boast of a single championship win over Erin's Own in senior championship fare......

Assuming u19 games last night with no score up weren't played? I know ours wasn't

All Saints conceded to Cargin who will meet Enda's next round.....

I See on the county website there's fixtures down for u19 Championship tomorrow night, will these go ahead?

Did the u-19 league proceed...
Cargin played one game therein and never experienced another game.....
So hugely doubtful.....

CB Lavey a young outfit overall and there was only one way they were goin next few years. Plenty talent coming through. Them and m'felt next in line. Don't get me wrong I'm happy enough to see them lose 4 probable v influential figures for next while. But anyways I've spoke enough about Derry on here, the mob will be after me again 😆

Lotta teams in Derry, some served well by St Pats, Mary's and Pius are Cargin

But peer through the bushes there are more than a few in the medioctrity zone.......
