No shocks in store in Intermediate grade

No shocks in store in Intermediate grade

Group 1

Cloone v Drumkeerin: A win for Drumkeerin seals their quarter-final place and they look more than strong enough to do that after their demolition of Carrigallen. Cloone need a win and a Carrigallen loss to force a three-way tie and hope that their scoring average is good enough but it is hard to see them pulling off a shock win here, Drumkeerin to take the win.

Carrigallen v Sean O’Heslin’s: Carrigallen were blown out of it by Drumkeerin in the last round so it is hard to see them pulling off the shock of the year against a Sean O’Heslin’s team who look in a different class to everyone in the grade. The Ballinamore men should cruise at their ease into the quarter-finals.

Group 2

Glenfarne/Kilty v Fenagh St. Caillin’s: Fenagh received a harsh, harsh lesson against Aughnasheelin in the last round and will need a good performance to get their ship back on track. They face a Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher team who put in an improved display against Eslin but they just don’t have the resources to trouble St. Caillin’s. The Fenagh men should get back on track here with a big win.

Aughnasheelin v Eslin: A well organised Aughnasheelin look like the only real challengers to Ballinamore so far but Eslin will give them a different sort of test. Aughnasheelin will want to improve their accuracy a bit and while Eslin will pose different questions, the form line would suggest that Aughnasheelin will cruise into the Quarter-Finals top of the group.

Group 3

Ballinaglera v Mohill: Ballinaglera have quietly and effectively gone about their business in Group 3 to already book their place in the Quarter-Finals. Mohill are a strong second string outfit but Ballinaglera have effectively dealt with all the challenges posed by the teams in this group and the north Leitrim men should maintain their unbeaten record next Sunday with some ease.

Leitrim Gaels v St. Mary’s: A local derby that would normally excite and get a good crowd in for a meeting of two neighbours should really be a simple exercise for a Leitrim Gaels team operating in Division One of the League against a struggling St. Mary’s from Division 2. Leitrim Gaels got an opening day shock against Ballinaglera and struggled at times against Mohill but they should prove far too good here against the Carrick men.
