Replying To footballfirst:  "What made it worse was the real soft free he gave at the other end 30 seconds later. A gap of 8 instead of potentially 4 ! After that Scotstown were going for goals and that was never going to work against that defence

Scotstown lost it on the line. D Hughes needed to be brought back to centre half or even full back before half time. McBrearety couldn't believe his luck i'd say with the lack of marking"
When you lose a game by 10 points against a team that was pulling up in the second half you can't lay the blame on the sideline. Sometimes you just have to acceppt that you were beaten by a better team on the day.

The same happened to Kilcar last year when they were overwhelming favourites to win the county championship but were out thought by an experienced Glenswiley outfit. We blamed the weather, the referee, etcetc but at the end of the day had to admit that Glenswiley deserved their win & that was a one point win!

It wouldn't have mattered even if Scotstown had scored a penalty yesterday, Kilcar would just have upped it another gear.

That may have been the case, we all agree Kilcar was the better team and fair play and I hope you go on an win ulster.

If the penalty had of when in Kilcar could have raised the fears, but the same could have been said about Scotstown. Remember this was a team that was 8 points down with 2 and half minutes of injury time remaining in a semi final and drew.

Anyway best of luck to Kilcar.

Replying To Eddie the Exile:  "Carrick will be kicking themselves today. They hit 8 bad wides from within 40m in the last 20 minutes, having pinned Moy right back on the kickouts. On another day they could have had another 1.6 on the board. Very surprised that management didnt use the bench up front in the closing stages, Moy were visibly tiring but just dug in. Extra pace for a few mins surely would have added something.
The winning score came, predictably, from a breakout free with a spectacular swan-dive by Cavanagh to set up the chance. Was it ever going to be different?"
I agree Eddie. Subs should definitely have been used. When you have three forwards on the bench who have played at various levels for the county it's very surprising not to see them get the chance when a number of Carricks forwards seemed to have an off day. Even just to inject a bit of pace off the bench in the hope of winning a free etc.
I wasn't at the game myself but saw Carricks Intermediate championship run and have seen a few of their league games. For the strength of the squad that Carrick have at the moment the management don't seem to have a lot of confidence in their fringe players, relying on the same 16-17 boys to win them their games all year. Subs are only ever considered in the last 10 minutes when Carrick have been up by around 7 or 8 points in most games at half time. Only games where they really used their bench all year were in a few throwaway league games at the end.
They definitely have the talent to make a real push in senior next year, however management need to realize you can't win senior games without a full 20 players experienced playing tight games at that level. They will not have the luxury of beating teams the way they have done all year and will need more players to grind out results in senior.
This fear of not using the bench could be the reason why Carrick historically lose so many good juvenile players, and also why they haven't won a senior in so long. It'll be interesting to see how they fare in senior next year and the years to come, but realistically with the juvenile success the club has experienced in recent years, this generation of Carrick seniors should be winning county titles.

i think kilcar got 1-8 to 0-0 in the run up to half time. When that's happening management have to react. Instead they did nothing. Half time came and still they did nothing. Kilcar won on merit and i don't think anyone is saying they didn't - my point is that with better management Scotstown could and have been a lot closer

Currin were outstanding against tattyreagh. Mccarron scored 07 points and dick scored a goal of the season contender


James darcy of tayyreagh scored 09 points and he is not even on the county. Mccarron, mcmanus and Darcy would make some full forward line.

Looks like currin v seans in the dr ward cup final. Currin only habe to beat clones who are no great sakes.

The goal in the 59 th minute killed us off. But we will live to fight another day

Has there been a suspension from the incident in the junior final? Notice the player involved not listed in the program on Sunday.

Seemingly the whole thing was a shambles from the start. All sorts of rumours around regarding interference from senior Co Board members and changing of statements by umpires. Very unfair on Currin to have to go through all that and try to prepare for an Ulster club final. Seans should have just taken their beating and moved on. Have done nothing but cry about it since. Also a much worse incident when the same player in question got his jaw broken, yet nothing has been done about that. The whole thing stank.....

Was at both games in Omagh on Sunday and to be honest you would be hard pushed to tell difference between grades. The first game was a thriller and huge credit mut be given to both teams on how they played and approached the game. Dicks goal in first half was an abolute cracker, as were all the goals scored on the day. The dual Jack had with his marker was worht the entrance fee alone, with both players coming away with 5 star ratings. Tattyreagh will be hard stopped in rest of competition and beyond, and overall were the beter team on the day with very few weak links. Carrick seemed like a team that had bought into their own hype. Even after a good start they didnt show enough ambition to go for it, and should have been able to beat an average Moy team. Bad day for Monaghan all round. Scotstown....well they just done 'A Scotstown' didnt they. Not surprised as inconsistancy on big match days from their key players has always been theirs, and Monaghans achilles heal.

Clones are up in 2nd place, a spot ahead of Currin, I'd fancy Clones to beat them this Sunday..

Currin conceded points and fielded weaken teams - not something i would do. Ulster glory was not to be so i fancy currin. When did clones last beat a full currin team?

Currin have beaten Clones on most occasions in the past few years however I fancy Clones to win Sunday, they look to be playing well recently as opposed to the last time the two teams met
