Sarsfields – Tir Na nOg Randalstown Match Prediction | 31-08-2019 09:30

Chrissy OConnell was poc out perfect for the Shamrocks and Mark McFadden were automatic choices this week while James McNaughton, Odhran McFadden and Ronan McCloskey join his fellow Loughgiel club men. Conal Coby Cunning was back to his brilliant best as he led the Dunloy charge against Rossa with Phelim Duffin, Conor McKinley, Kevin Molloy and Paul Shiels while Keelan Molloy makes it two from two for this years championship team of the week. Niall ONeill and Jackson McGreevy were the best in a St Galls shirt although Kieron McGourty can find himself unlucky not to have been included either along with Aodhan Gallagher. Deaglan Murphy reached double figures for his tally in Rossas defeat to Dunloy while Michael Armstrong put in a big shift for the Shaws Road side over the hour. Gerard Walsh and Stephen Beatty just missing out.

Wins for Cushendall and Ballycastle in Minor Hurling Championship

Both teams contributed to a hard fought and enjoyable match with Sarsfields now going onto the final against either Con Magees Glenravel or Aldergrove to try and qualify for the Feile Peile na nOg in June. An earlier delay for a Sarsfields injury meant the clock was not on the home teams side and the ref blew the whistle just after 30 minutes of play with Sarsfields taking the victory on a scoreline of 2:5 to 3:4 in favour of the visitors. With time ticking away Sarsfields added another goal but the Tir na nOg girls were not for giving up and responded with a goal of their own. On the restart Sarsfields started the stronger and reversed the 2 point lead with another three pointer and a free kick.

Glenariffe battled hard against the odds but the boys from the Town pushed on to secure a semi-final place against Dunloy. Worse was to follow for the Oisins as two more of their players received straight red cards within three minutes of each other early in the second half and Ballycastle took over. Joe McToal started Ballycastles race for home with a goal in the thirty fifth minute and Seamus McAuley followed with two goals from penalties. Ballycastle came back with four points without reply through Feargal McKiernan, Caolan OConnor and two frees from Smyth, to level the game on 25 minutes and they were level again at 0-8 each going into half time when the home team had Caolan OConnor sent off after receiving a second yellow card. However the scoring pattern was much different in this game and midway through the first half the Oisins actually held a four point lead.

The U6 teams from Kickhams Creggan and Tr Na Ng lined out against each other not once, but twice on Saturday. Firstly the teams lined out in the morning at Tr Na Ng playing hurling as part of their centenary celebrations. Then, in the afternoon on the same day, both teams lined out in Creggan to play a Gaelic match as a curtain-raiser for the Special Championship 2019 and they gave a fantastic guard of honour to both the Antrim and Derry teams entering the pitch. Thanks, everyone for making this possible, especially the coaches and parents.

McKinley went on to complete hishat-trick of goals to steer his team to a 4-18 to 1-8 win and set up asemi-final meeting with Loughgiel in two weeks time. Caolan McKernan pointed for St Pauls at the startof the second half but when Aidan Ritson came back with Cushendalls third goalthere was no way back for the Belfast boys.

From the team that lost narrowly to Slaughtneil in lastyears McAuley Cup final, five players havent featured in the championship thisyear while Ryan McKee has been used as a substitute. Between retirements and playerunavailability, the Shamrocks manager has had a major rebuilding job on hishands this year: Its no secret Loughgiel are in transition. When you look at the team that were beaten inthe final last year, I think were missing seven or eight players when you takeinto account retirements or lads away overseas for one reason or another.

With only 30 minutes in total to show off their skills the game started at a fast pace with Sarsfields opening the scoring with a point. Both teams traded goals and Tir na nOg added on a couple of points to finish the half on a high, leading 1:4 to 1:2. Tir na nOg soon found their feet however and battled hard to pin the Belfast team back.

An early goal from Conlith McKinleyand points from Fiontan McQuillan, Ronan McAteer (2) and Pierce McKeegan hadthe Ruairis seven up before a Danon McKeogh goal brought St Pauls back intothe game. Cushendall hosted St Pauls at Pairc Mhuire wherethey were in dominant form from the start. However it was only a brief respite for the visitors and theCushendall boys pushed on to lead by 2-10 to 1-2, the second goal also comingfrom full forward McKinley.

Pirc an Cromach, Armoy plays host to the McAuley Cup final on Wednesday evening with Kevin Lynchs travelling down the glen to face the Shamrocks. The Loughgiel men are perennial challengers for the memorial tournament, played in honour of Paddy McAuley the man credited with bringing the small ball to Armoy in the 60s. Loughgiel were beaten in last years final in a close contest with Slaughtneil, a late Liam Cassidy goal earning the Emmets a four point win and they face a Kevin Lynchs who are a side on the up and come off the back of winning back to back Ulster minor crowns. Under the tutelage of Derry legend, Geoffrey McGonigle they are trying to transfer that potential at underage into the finished product at senior level.
