The two Mayo League sides in action of the last 64 of the FAI Junior Cup, booked their place in the last 32 of the competition with impressive wins over Munster opposition at home last Sunday.
With both sides progressing to the fifth round of the FAI Junior Cup two weeks ago, confidence is high in both Westport United and Manulla camps heading into the Connacht Gold Super Cup on Sunday afternoon next. After wrapping up the league title it has been a successful debut season for John Brennan and his Westport Utd troops. However, they were pushed all the way by Dysart FC where the Covies carved out a 3-2 win thanks to a late Mark McNally winner and this will give hope to Manulla who bagged the Westaro Cup back in August.
Westport Utd went one step closer towards retaining the league title on Sunday afternoon at a rain-swept Ballyglass where they recorded a comprehensive 5-2 win. Considering that Ballyglass went 1-0 up in the 13th minute and were also reduced to 10 men as referee Damien McGrath flashed red to Danny Scahill, Westport United showed great composure to grind out a result away from home.
After knocking out Ballyheane a couple of weeks ago many observers felt that Claremorris would not have enough in the tank to take out Ballina Town. They proved all their doubters wrong on Sunday afternoon as they booked their last four ticket following their 3-2 win over the Super League side in Concannon Park. Daniel Gorman had given Ballina an early lead with a smashing free-kick from 20 yards, but the south Mayo men regrouped and were rewarded as Dean Roddy opened his account after Simon Butler put him through on goal and it remained dead-locked at the break.
