Ballybay expected to keep good run going

MAGHERACLOONE travel away to Inniskeen in the first Senior Championship action of the weeked, at 2.30pm on Saturday.

The former side need to get things going this weekend as they have lost their opening two games in the competition. They lost to Scotstown in round one, 3-17 to 2-10. They weren’t able to keep tabs on Shane Carey who scored 2-6.

Then last weekend they lost to Carrickmacross by 3-7 to 0-9.

Inniskeen will be feeling confident of getting a result having played one, and won one. They beat Carrickmacross last weekend by 0-14 to 0-8 and Donal Meegan’s free taking was crucial for that result.

Carrickmacross meet Truagh on Saturday at 5.30pm. Bouncing back from that loss to Inniskeen with the win over Magheracloone will be very important for them. They are playing a Truagh side which lost to Scotstown 2-9 to 0-8. But Truagh will be a test. They won two and drew one of their senior league games this year.

In group two of the senior championship Clontibret clash with Monaghan Harps, (Saturday, Clontibret, 5.30pm). Clontibret are out to bounce back from their opening round loss to Ballybay. The play a Harps team that also lost to Ballybay, but who also lost to Latton, so their mood is likely to be low.

Ballybay meet Castleblayney at 2pm on Sunday, and will feel confident that they can get their third win on the trot after those wins over Clontibret and Harps. Blayney lost to Latton a fortnight ago and could be up against it in this game.

The Intermediate Championship sees Cremartin take on Blackhill (Saturday, Cremartin, 2.30pm), Eire Og play Aughanamullen (Sunday, Smithboro, 2pm), Tyholland clash with Corduff (Sunday, Tyholland, 5pm), Donahgmoyne play Killanny (Sunday, Donaghmoyne, 5pm).

In the junior series, Aghabog play Clones (Saturday, 2.30pm), Sean McDermotts play Rockcorry (Saturday, Páirc Sheáin Mhic Dhiarmada, 5.30pm), Toome play Currin (Sunday, Toome, 2pm), and Killeevan play Oram (Sunday, Killeevan, 5pm).
