Aldergrove – Moneyglass Match Prediction | 05-10-2019 12:00

Monaghan Senior Football ChampionshipPenalty shoot-outs are the biggest talking points so far. So as it stands now:Scotstown are in one semi final and they await the winners of Ballybay v Carrickmacross.Clontibret are in the other semi final and they will play the winners of Truagh v Latton. Scotstown prevailed 4-2 on penalties and Truagh are now into the back door which is now really a quarter final. The latest game to end level after extra time was Scotstown v Truagh last sunday.

From a kickout late inthe game Aldergroves Brian McQuillan wonpossession and drove the ball over thebar for what turned out to be the winning score. With darkness closing in the game would not have beenfinished had it not been for the floodlights being turned on as James Gallagherand Fergal Burke exchanged points with time running out. James Gallagher was now operating on the edgeof the square and added a pointed free and one from play to leave the scoreslevel and it was clear this one was going to go to the wire. The visitors thenenjoyed a period of ascendancy and could have settled the issue but were guiltyof some poor shooting and were to pay for those misses.

My dark horse for the County is probably Loughrea.Portumna have been getting hammered by everyone so far. Good matches to come in both codes... Gort looks average. In Hurling it's a coin toss as usual. I'd probably favor Corofin and St Thomas's to retain their crowns though it will be tough going for both. Corofin had some of their toughest matches in Galway last year in the football. St Thomas's, Sarsfields, Cappataggle, Tourloughmore, look awesome and I know I'm leaving out some great teams so forgive me. Fintan Burke is a huge loss for St Thomas's but they seem fine without him. In Galway things are moving along nicely.

Michael McCourt pointed a free as thehalftime whistle blew to leave the score 0-5 to 0-4 in the home sides favour. Corner forward Conor Dixon got the home side up and runningwith an excellent point before the ever reliable Michael McCourt had the scoreslevel with a pointed free. Francis McMeel put his side back in front with apoint from play but Glenavy moved ahead with a pointed free by Michael McCourtand two from open play from Niall McCann and Ciaran Loney (this was thedisputed point). Back came the side in blue and gold with three of their ownfrom Conor Dixon, Mark Torbitt and a pointed free from Francis McMeel to puttheir side one in front once more.

Meath is down to 9 with last season's champions out in the group stage after picking up 5 points in 5 matches.This weekend sees a preliminary quarter final before the quarterfinals proper next weekend.3 relegation games will cut the field from 18 to 16 next season with only 1 team to come up.Gael Colmcille and Simonstown feel like the teams to beat.On their day any of the teams can cause a shock.In Antrim it's hard to look past the winner of Cargin and St Galls.

After a close first half the game was finely balanced but the second half belonged to the Chapel Hill side. Going into this game the home side playing at their home ground on Kirkwood Road knew they would be playing division three football next season. On the other hand the visitors knew their division 2 place had been secured for another season.

The only result which will deny them the crown is a 10 point or more defeat. The Senior Championship starts this weekend with the Preliminary round. Cushendall can finish third if they defeat St Johns at home this evening but any other result will have the Johnnies holding 3rd spot.The Hurling Championship has already started with the group stages in the Senior underway following the preliminary round where Rossa defeated Ballycastle with quite a bit to spare. In Antrim the Hurling leagues have been wrapped up and the Football is due to conclude this evening. Dunloy retained their status of Hulring League Champions ending 4 points the better of Loughgiel in second place. After the first two group matches (3 teams in each group) Dunloy beat Cushendall by point in Group 1 and Loughgiel beat St Johns by 6 in Group 2. Top 2 in each group in to semi draw (can't draw same team from group).In Football, Cargin have one hand one the league trophy and play second place Creggan away in the final game tonight. The first round follows with Cargin, St Galls, St Johns and Creggan joining the following round, the 1/4 final (these happen to be the 4 teams in the top 4 positions in the league). Rossa and St Galls are the other two teams, one in each group. Cargin and St Galls can potentially meet in the semi final with St Johns and Creggan aiming to make the other semi.

MM would expect to beat any of the other 6 teams left, but it's hard to see them winning this. They almost caught Corofin in the drawn final last year, but played a very negative style to do it. Tuam had a narrow loss to Corofin in the group, which is their only defeat this year. Football quarter-finals in Galway this weekend.Corofin vs Mountbellew-Moylough: Last year's finalists. Michael's: A look at the teamsheets would indicate a Moycullen win, but Michael's have proven to be very dogged this year. Claregalway have been very strong underage for a number of years and the signs are showing now at adult level. Tuam are expected to win this, but I wouldn't rule out a shock. An Spidal are missing their county player, but have improved and were very competitive in all of their group games. Moycullen have a number of county players and panellists from recent years, but have a few injury concerns and absences. Salthill in another tight game.Moycullen vs St. Corofin haven't been near top gear yet and cruised through the group, but I'd expect them to step up the level when needed.Salthill-Knocknacarra vs Claregalway: Salthill topped their group unbeaten, but had a good few tight matches. I'd expect Moycullen to come through.An Spidal vs Tuam: Last year's intermediate champions who went on to win Connacht against a Tuam team who've been in excellent form this year.

The visitors were bitterly disappointed in losing their fifth league game of the season by a single point. Both sides will be glad to see the league ending in what both would class as a poor season to date but with championship just around the corner there is still ample opportunity to end their respective seasons with a flourish. Over the hour the home side deserved their win as they made much better use of their scoring chances.

Moneyglass overcame Glenravel in the first Intermediate semi and a late burst from Aldergrove in the closing minutes seen them pip St Pauls in the other. And GNM beat Rasharkin during the week and will now meet St Pauls in the Junior with Carey and St Endas playing in the Intermediate. So after the weekend pretty much know the deciders across the board with the exception being the Senior Football semi between Casements Portglenone and Lamh Dhearg which, having enjoyed the replay so much in the previous round PG1 decided to convert a penalty with the last kick of the game and force another one.Elsewhere, Cargin made light work of St Galls in the other Senior semi and await the winners of the replay. In the Junior Lisburn and Ardoyne will contest the final.In the hurling Cushendall beat St Johns in the Senior replay yesterday to set up a showdown with Dunloy in Ballycastle next Sunday. Match to be shown live on TG4.

for me it's Celbridge or Athy to win it out.Intermediate will be won by Clougherinkoe, Monasterevin or Leixlip with the Cloughs my tip.Junior final is this weekend and I'd imagine it's Ballymore's with a good bit to spare. Kildare has been without much surprise, other than Naas' demise leading them to a relegation play-off, very soo matter winning div.1 of the league.With the senior semi finals coming up it is all to play for and the teams left will all feel they have a chance. Moorefield were beaten by Sarsfields in the group stages and I'm not sure they have the 3 in a row in them..
