The heat is certainly on this weekend as a number of clubs face make or break games in the Westmeath senior football championship. With the exception of the two Mullingar sides who are already safely through to the semi-final, every other club has something to play for this weekend. For some, like Athlone and Castledaly, a win is simply a must if they are to maintain their interest in this year’s championship beyond this weekend. For others like Maryland, C/F/C/W, Killucan, and Kinnegad a win is a necessity if they are to avoid a dreaded relegation battle.
There is plenty at stake as round four of the Westmeath senior football championship takes place this weekend. St Loman’s and Shamrocks can all but secure their place in the automatic semi-final spots with wins over Coralstown/Kinnegad and C/F/C/W respectively.
Sixteen teams remain in contention in the Leinster senior A colleges championship ahead of round 2 which is due to take place next Wednesday January 23.
The Leinster colleges championship gets underway today (Friday) with a number of local schools in action. Athlone Community College take on Ardscoil na Trionoide in AIT at 1pm. While the Community College were victorious in the north Leinster League, championship provides an even greater challenge and this opening game is very much a banana skin for the league champions.
Round four of the Westmeath club championship is down for decision this weekend and things are hotting up in the race to secure a place in the knock-out stages. Before I take a closer look at the upcoming action I want to get my, by now annual, rant out of the way.
There was plenty of drama and a few surprises too as a full schedule of round three games were played in the Westmeath senior football championship last weekend. While Maryland made it three wins out of three in group B and Tyrrellspass and Garrycastle recorded important wins in division A, the big winners from the weekend were Bunbrosna and St Malachy’s.
Westmeath footballers have a glorious opportunity of reaching this year’s Leinster decider despite a tough opener away to Wexford. The provincial draw has been very kind to them as they avoid the big guns of Dublin, Kildare, Meath, and Laois. If they can clear their first hurdle in Wexford Park tomorrow evening (Saturday) then they will face either Louth or Carlow in a semi-final. It is hard to look beyond a Louth win over Luke Dempsey’s men in that one and they would hardly instil fear in Westmeath.
The Shay Murtagh Westmeath senior football championship is in full swing with all but two clubs looking forward to their second championship outing this weekend. Athlone and Garrycastle both sat out the opening weekend of action last weekend but face Bunbrosna and The Downs respectively this weekend. They will then face each other in a standalone fixture on Sunday May 15.
