Moneyglass will win

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

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.

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.

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.

Owen Gallagher, one of sixbrothers in the St. Fergal Burke responded for St. Josephs panel, burst through from midfield to land anexcellent point but back came the Crumlin men with a move that started indefence and finished with Fergal Burke finding the back of the net. We then had the firstgoal of the game when Thomas Gallagher was alert and finished to the net forthe visitors to restore their lead. James toclose the gap to one when he split the posts but the ever reliable MichaelMcCourt added to his tally with a pointed free. The visitors playing up the hill were first on the scoresheet with a Michael McCourt pointed free but Brian McQuillan and SeamusMcGarry replied with points to put the reds in front.

The Saffron Gael

When Kelly split the posts in the 14th minute forthe St Ergnats to put nine between the sides, they were dominant and gave thevisitors very little in the way of chances.Ryan ONeill opened their account with a point from distance with theoutside of his boot and would signal the start of a mini revival by thevisitors. They went onto score a furtherthree points unanswered from Christy Sheerin (two) and Ciaran Dobbin.

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.

The second half started with a Francis McMeel pointed free and Lisburn were looking good. Fergus Cunningham, who had replaced the injured Michael Johnston at half-timereplied for St. Back came the lads in blue and gold with a point from Mark Torbitt to level the scores at 7 apiece and it still looked anyones game. Glenavy soon put paid to that notion. Josephs from a placed ball. Could they go on to record a second victory after last weeks win in Glenravel? James Gallagher started the fight back with a long distance point and team captain Ciaran Loney stroked a beauty through the upright to put the orange men one up.
