This weekend is a big one for eight teamsfrom both sides of the Shannon as the semi-finals of the Westmeath and Roscommon SFC are down for decision.

Last gasp defeats can have a shuddering impact on a club. Back in November, 2006 at Dr Hyde Park, Corofin were on the verge of annexing Connacht title number five. Victory was within the Galway team's grasp, they had absorbed punishment from St Brigid’s, but Corofin were still standing. So when the knock out blow arrived three minutes into stoppage time the devastation was palpable. The languid Karol Mannion lashed as sweet a shot as he will ever drill, rippling the net to fracture Corofin hearts. They still haven’t been fully mended, but the restoration process has been assisted by Corofin’s Galway SFC success.
Roscommon advanced to round three of the qualifiers with a victory over Wexford in Dr Hyde Park on Saturday, winning by three points in the end on a score line of 11 points to eight. Roscommon have the freetaking of Donie Shine to thank as he almost single-handedly booted them into the next round with a fabulous display of placekicking. Shine scored nine of Roscommon’s 11 points, eight of which came from placed balls. Roscommon manager Fergal O’Donnell will only know too well that if Roscommon are to progress further in this year’s championship, scoring three points from play will not be enough. Wexford had a number of chances and can blame some wayward shooting for their championship exit. They kicked 10 wides in the second half and if Meath’s forwards get the same amount of possession this weekend they will not be as wasteful.
