All of the club fixtures for this weekend have now been played so here’s a quick gallop through the results.
Starting with women’s football, this weekend saw semi-final action in the Senior, Intermediate and Junior A Championships.
Knockmore and Westport were the winners at Senior level this morning and so will meet in this year’s county final. Knockmore, champions two years ago, saw off the challenge of Kilmovee Shamrocks, winning that one by 1-13 to 2-5. Westport, meanwhile, registered a real statement win over Carnacon, crushing their once dominant opponents by 4-14 to 0-4, to qualify for their first ever Senior decider (match report from the Mayo News here).
In the Intermediate Championship, MacHale Rovers beat Ballyhaunis by 5-6 to 3-4, while Moy Davitts got the better of Louisburgh by 3-12 to 2-10. In the Junior A Championship, there were semi-final wins for Claremorris, who beat Aghamore in a high-scoring 4-15 to 2-19 encounter, and St Brigid’s, who edged past Parke/Keelogues/Crimlin by 1-17 to 1-15.
Sticking with football, this time involving the men, the New Junior A Championship final between Knockmore and Westport was played at Parke this afternoon, following its abandonment due to the torrential rain that hit the west the other weekend. There were no such weather issues today and in fine conditions Knockmore ran out the winners on a scoreline of 1-13 to 3-3.
Finally, in the Senior hurling Championship there were Round 3 wins yesterday for Tooreen and Ballyhaunis. The former beat Castlebar Mitchels by 2-31 to 0-6 while the latter defeated St Ciarán’s by 1-21 to 0-5. Tooreen and Ballyhaunis will now meet in the TJ Tyrell Cup decider while Mitchels and St Ciaran’s will contest the B final. Dates and times for those two county finals have yet to be confirmed.
