Three of the Intermediate quarter final places are already known as we head in to the final round of the group stages inÓgroups 1, 3  while group 2 are at round 2 stage and group 4 placings to be confirmed.   This weekend should see two more places confirmed while the remaining two places will be decided 1 week later.  Relegation is also facing some teams as we look at the status of the groups:

 

Group 1

Final Game:  Annaduff v Aughnasheelin
 

Status:  with Dromahaire through to the quarters its between  Annaduff v Aughnasheelin to decide on the runner up spot.  Both teams had close teams against Dromahire and Aughnasheelin just lost by the smallest margins.  As a result they have the better score difference of -1 compared to Annaduffs -3.  A draw in this game and Aughnasheelin will go through with the better score difference and Annaduff head for the relegation playoffs.

 

Group 2

Next Game: Aughavas v Glencar/Manorhamilton
 

Status:  This group are a game behind the other 3 but with St. Marys win last weekend over Glencar/Manor the pressure is on Manor to survive this weekend as a loss will rule them out.  score difference will apply if Manor win this weekend and Aughavas beat St Marys next week, Manor will need to be aware of this.

 

Group 3

Final Game:  Drumkeeran v Ballinaglera  

Status:  Cloone are in the quarters and Drumkeerin are nearly there in that they need a draw or better to go through.  Ballinaglera on the other hand need to win outright as they need all the points to better Drumkeerins 1 point.

 

Group 4

Final Game:  Gortletteragh v Fenagh St. Caillins  

Status:  This group is almost decided upon as Gortletteragh and Fenagh are guaranteed a place what remains to be seen is in which order they come out of the group.  A draw and Gortletteragh will go through as table toppers due to score difference.  Glenfarne/ Kiltyclougher await the relegation playoff.
