ARMAGH SENIOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP QUARTER FINALS
GRANEMORE V MULLAGHBAWN
Saturday, Crossmaglen, 1.30pm
BOTH sides will see this as a massive opportunity to reach the last four. Granemore are a bit more experienced at this level and the scoring power of Jason O’Neill and Ryan Rafferty could see them through.
BALLYMACNAB V MAGHERY
Saturday, Athletic Grounds, 6pm
TWO of the big hitters in the Senior Championship collide on Saturday in what should be a fascinating encounter. Maghery were the most impressive team in the first rounds and have won two of the last five championships.
KILLEAVY V CLAN NA GAEL
Sunday, Pearse Og Park, 1.45pm
CLAN na Gael are certainly a coming force but this may be a step too far. Killeavy are minus a lot of star quality through injuries, including talisman Ciaron O’Hanlon, but should still have enough to make it through
DROMINTEE V CROSSMAGLEN
Sunday, Athletic Grounds, 6pm
DROMINTEE’S strength is long, early ball to the full forward line while there’s question marks over the Crossmaglen full back line. In saying that, Stephen Kernan’s men have too much quality and will get over this hurdle.
ARMAGH JUNIOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP SEMI FINALS
AN PORT MOR V LISSUMMON
Saturday, Athletic Grounds, 4pm
LISSUMMON have been building nicely this year under Seamus Loughran and have been the dark horses for the Junior Championship. With the big two on the other side of the draw, this is a huge chance to reach the decider.
DERRYNOOSE V MIDDLETOWN
Sunday, Athletic Grounds, 4pm
THE best two teams in the competition meet in the semi-finals and it’s likely that the winner of this game will go on to win the championship. It’s a close one to call but Middletown may just have enough to get over the line.
ARMAGH JUNIOR HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP SEMI FINALS
KEADY II V KILLEAVY
Sunday, Pearse Og Park, 3.30pm
THESE sides met in the opening round of the group stages and goals from SP Gibney, Conor Shortt and Lee McParland handed Keady IIs the victory and they should secure their place in the final this weekend.
Verdict: Keady II
SEAN TREACY’S V CUCHULAINNS II
Sunday, Ballymacnab, 4.00pm
SEAN Treacy’s are the top team in the Junior Championship, although Cuchulainns IIs are the only team to have beaten them in the group stages. The Lurgan men are sure to have learned from their mistakes and should right the wrongs of that game.
Verdict: Sean Treacy’s
