Championship Roundup

Connacht Gold Senior Football Championship

Our quarter finalists are now known following the last round of group games which took place last weekend. InÓgroup 1, Glencar Manorhamilton were ruthless in their must winÓgame against Carrigallen. Their six point winning margin was enough to see them top the group (on Scóring average) and qualify Bornacoola as group runners up. Incidentally, a five point loss for Carrigallen would have seen them through and Bornacoola out – that is how close this group was in the end. InÓgroup 2, St Marys beat Allen Gaels by five points and they topped their group with two wins from two with Kiltubrid finishing group runners up as they had already accounted for Allen Gaels. InÓgroup 3 Annaduff won their last game against Ballinamore SOH and this was enough to see them join SOHs in the Quarter Finals. All teams in this group finished on 2 points but Drumreillys poorer Scóring return let them down in the end. In the last Group Mohill who had already topped their group after Round 2 were joined by Aughawillan as they defeated Cloone by five points at the weekend. The quarter final meetings have thrown up some mouth watering ties. They are scheduled to take place on Saturday 20th August as follows:-

 St Marys v Bornacoola at 5.15 in Páirc Sean

 Glencar Manorhamilton v Kiltubrid at 6.45 in Páirc Sean

 Mohill v Annaduff at 5.15 in Cloone

 Ballinamore SOH v Aughawillan at 6.45 in Cloone

 Facing into relegation semi final battle will be:-

 Drumreilly v Cloone on Saturday 20th August at 5pm in Fenagh

Carrigallen v Allen Gaels on Sunday 21st August at 12.30 in Aughawillan

 GWP Intermediate Football Championship

InÓgroup 2, Glencar Manorhamiltons second string accounted for an injury hit Aughnasheelin side. They now join Eslin who topped the group in the quarter finals. Gortletteragh were victorious against Ballinaglera and joinÓgroup 3 winners Melvin Gaels in the quarter finals while inÓgroup 4 Dromahair accounted for Fenagh and this result saw them top their group with Aughavas runners up. The meeting of Drumkeerin and Glenfarne Kiltyclogher was postponed owing to a bereavement in the Glenfarne Kiltyclogher Club. We take this opportunity to sympathise with the Harkin Family, Glenfarne on the sudden and sad loss of Desmond Harkin, RIP. This game is re-fixed for next Saturday evening at 7pm in Ballinaglera. The result will decide first and second group placing.

The Intermediate Quarter Finals are scheduled for Sunday 21st August as follows:-

 Eslin v Group 1 Runners Up (Drumkeerin Glenfarne Kiltyclogher) in Drumshanbo at 12.30

Glencar Manorhamilton v Group 1 Winners (Drumkeerin Glenfarne Kiltyclogher) in Drumshanbo at 2pm

Dromahair v Gortletteragh in Pairc Sean at 12.30
