It’s been an intriguing Mayo Senior football Championship this year and, with four of the big beasts in club football within the county in recent years all falling by the wayside at the quarter-final stage, it’s more interesting it’s getting as the remaining competitors prepare to head down the final stretch.
Two clubs who have never lifted the Moclair Cup bookend the final four betting, with Westport now the favourites to land the title while Belmullet – who have so far in this campaign beaten both of last year’s finalists – are the outsiders. One of them will contest the final, as they’re drawn against each other in the semis.
Champions Knockmore, meanwhile, must be fancying their chances of sealing back-to-back county titles. If they’re to do this, however, they’ll first have to get by impressive dark horses Garrymore, who come into the penultimate round with a real sense of momentum.
Many are, no doubt, licking their chomps at the prospect of a Knockmore/Westport final. But, who knows, it might instead turn out to be a Belmullet/Garrymore decider. Or maybe a Belmullet/Knockmore one, or, indeed, a Garrymore/Westport one.
Those are the four possible pairings in light of the semi-final draw. What do you reckon: which two clubs will qualify for this year’s Moclair Cup decider?
