As this year’s ACFL Division 2 reached Round 6 the race for the title is still wide open with only two points separating the top six sides and all six will still have hopes of league success or at least promotion. Round 6 brought about no change with all the top six sides winning and early pace setters Rasharkin and St. Enda’s still share top spot.
Rasharkin had six points to spare over visiting Davitt’s while St. Enda’s scored an impressive 3-16 at Ardoyne but did concede 3-6. After dropping three points in their opening two games All Saints have put a strong run together but are unlikely to have such an easy win again this season than Sunday’s facile victory over St. Comgall’s, the home side scoring 8-17. Joining them on nine points are Glenavy who defeated Gort Na Mona at Enright Park and a point further back are St. Brigid’s who defeated Tir Na nOg.
The result of the day however was St. Ergnat’s away win at Dunloy, the Moneyglass men racking up an impressive 6-13 to hold sixth place in the table while Dunloy drop down the table after a promising start. St. Brigid’s had 15 points to spare in their win over Tir Na nOg at Musgrave Park and the Randalstown side now find themselves just one place above St. Comgall’s and Ardoyne at the wrong end of the table.
Things can change from week to week however as All Saints head to Moneyglass next Sunday, a ground where they have not had a lot of success in the past. Tir Na nOg entertain Gort Na Mona and will be hoping to improve on their poor start to the season while Glenavy can build on their recent good form when Dunloy come a calling.
Rasharkin will have it all to do when they visit St. Brigid’s but could edge it against a side who were relegated from Division 1 last year while the meeting of St. Comgall’s and Ardoyne looks a must win game for both sides, Ardoyne pointless at the bottom of the league while the Antrim men have only one point from the present campaign.
