Junior Championship continues today

CASEMENT SC JHC ROUND 2

All Games 4-00pm

The Junior Hurling championship continues today and throws up a number of interesting contests and the picture of who is going to emerge to the group stages could be a little clearer comes ten past five this evening or maybe not

Group 1

Davitt’s v Lamh Dhearg

Lamh Dhearg travel to Davitt’s with an opening round win over All Saints under their belts but will face stiff opposition in Michael Davitt’s who led Rasharkin at half time last Tuesday before capitulating in the second half. Lamh Dhearg went through division 4 of the league unbeaten but Davitt’s played their hurling in division 3 and with home advantage could edge a tight one and a draw can’t be ruled out.

All Saints v Rasharkin

Rasharkin took a while to shake off the challenge of Davitt’s at Dreen on Tuesday night but a strong second half performance saw them emerge victorious with something to spare and they will feel confident that they can extend their winning start when they travel to Ballymena to play All Saints.

Junior B champions All Saints pushed Lamh Dhearg hard last time out before losing for the third time this year to the Hannatown side and will start as underdogs for this one but home advantage will put them in with an outside chance of causing a major upset.

Group 2

St. Teresa’s v Loc Mor Dal gCais

Lock Mor and St. Teresa’s both suffered defeat on day one with the Lough Shore side losing heavily to championship favourites, Shane O’Neill’s in Crumlin while St. Teresa’s were beaten at Glenravel but pushed the Glen’s men hard and with home advantage should have too much for the beaten Junior B finalists

Shane O’Neill’s v Con Magee’s

This one could be a real cracker as Con Magee’s travel to Feystown buoyed by their opening day win but they face strong opponents in Shane O’Neill’s Glenarm. Shane O’Neill’s reached the division 3 league final before losing to Carryduff, their only defeat this year and with home advantage should edge this one.
