In the City, Pats beat the Well on Thursday- 6 from 6 and look like the team to beat. If Ballybrown beat bottom of the group Monaleen tonight, they'll secure the last semi-final spot and the City semis will be:
Pats vs Ballybrown
Well vs NaP
Hard to see past Pats & the Well to make the County QFs.
East semi-finals are:
Kilteely/Dromkeen vs Caherline
Ballybricken/Bohermore vs Doon
By all accounts, Kilteely are flying but Caherline, much like Feenagh/Kilmeedy in the West have the potential to deliver a big performance if they all pull together. On paper, they have a very strong team. Should be a cracking game.
Ballybricken bate Doon well earlier in the year, and although I would have fancied Doon's second side to make it to the final; they tend to get weaker as the year goes on.
The South merged their Junior A & B Championship this year.
It means that Kilmallock are already in the final having won their group handily, hammering the Stakers and they're already in the County QF. The Stakers play Castletown/Ballyagran for a place in the final. Hard one to call; they've played each other in knockout games the last few years; balance has tended to swing towards Ballyagran.
Should be 2 cracking semi-finals; Rathkeale should beat Templelantine and then you'd have them, Killeedy, Tournafulla and Feenagh/Kilmeedy as the last 4.
