Wasn't there. Awful fight for any match but I see Bredagh won handy enough 2-13 to 1-8.

Apparently they scored 2 goals in a minute just before half time and Carryduff fell apart.

Ports got a win over crans today in the B' Gray cup. Unlike last week ports fought in every position and never looked under pressure. Paddy Mac pulled aff 2 good saves and kept a good net. Frees missed by both sides but better team on the day won. Doesny make up for last week's disappointment but it helps. Decky couldny find balls in the first 1/2 but had loads and loads in the 2nd alf. Shame!

What?

Are you implying that the Ulster Football Council set the original date so far out to accommodate a football team that hadn't even won it's club championship semi-final?

But that wouldn't be fair, would it?

Be tight enough id say. Castleblaney defeated cushendun by a point or so in the final last year correct? Think bredagh beat cushendun in the league this year, where is the game?

Game is in Castleblayney. Yes Castleblayney beat Cushendun in the ulster junior final, really cushendun threw the game away in the last 10 minutes. Not sure of any league results between Bredagh and Cushendun but was shocked to see the bookies have Castleblayney as such big favourites. Been 4 weeks since last championship game while Bredagh played last week which could favour them. I expect it to be a close game and hoping the weather stays decent for it

The game is in Castleblaney. I always wish the Down clubs well in Ulster but I fear Blaney will be to strong for a very young Bredagh.

Good luck to Shamrocks as well v Sean Tracey's on Sunday week.

Does anyone really care about this U21 hurling "championship" ?


I'd predicted the following for the weekend past but the mods felt the need to block it for some reason

Minor
Loughgiel by as much as they wanted to

Junior
Treacy's

Intermediare
I went for Bredagh but only just but they won with a bit to spare.

St Endas and Coleraine seem to be the teams to beat in that one.

Two right so far and with the Shamrocks getting walloped in the football they can now pick up the ash in earnest.

The u21 championship is a good competition. It extends the season and keeps boys hurling. Its also good for lads that have drifted away after minor.

The fixtures came out this morning

Rd 2 1 Nov Bredagh v Ballygalget 7.30
