As a result of the torrential rain all weekend a number of games were pulled for the safety of the players. However, those that did go ahead threw up some cracking ties amid the shocking conditions. In the Elverys Sports Super League, Castlebar Celtic had gone into an early lead thanks to a Jordan Loftus goal after only 20 seconds, but with the rain getting heavier and the surface water in Celtic Park causing problems, referee Jimmy Cawley called both sets of players aside and abandoned the game after only nine minutes. Westport Utd were pushed all the way by Iorrais Aontaithe on Saturday night in what can only be described as a thriller. And the star of the show most definitely was Phil Keegan who bagged a hat-trick in a stunning display. Deadlocked at 2-2 at the break the Covies found something extra after the break with Keegan grabbing the late winner. Dave Cameron also got in on the act for Westport, with Ivan Barrett (two) and Kyle O’Reilly on target for Iorrais Aontaithe.

Westport United will be looking to avoid exiting the FAI Junior Cup at the seventh round stage for the second year in a row on Sunday, when they make the trip to Dublin. Standing in their way is a familiar foe in the shape of Sheriff YC the side that knocked them out of the competition at this stage last year. The Dublin outfit booked their place in this round of the competition with a comfortable 6-2 win over Tramore last Sunday on their home patch in Fairview. The Dublin outfit were in control of the contest from start to finish, and could have scored more than the half-dozen they did if they had their shooting boots on. Darren Dunne chipped in with a hat-trick, with John Rock scoring a brace to round off the scoring starting with a penalty and finishing with a neat finish from inside the area to make it number six.
