Westmeath SFC final
Following their five-point win over reigning champions Mullingar Shamrocks last weekend it is Tyrrellspass who will square up to St Loman’s in this year’s senior county final which is down for decision this Sunday.
The first of the quarter-finals in this year’s Westmeath senior football championship saw Tyrrellspass prove too strong for an Athlone side that were far too slow out of the blocks in Moate last Sunday evening.
There are three big games down for decision this weekend in the senior ranks. On Friday night in Cusack Park C/F/C/W take on Killucan in the relegation play-off. Both sides have been affected by missing players all year and were likely candidates for this fixture from a long way out.
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.
Round three of the Westmeath senior football championship takes place this weekend and there are few if any certainties in what should be an interesting selection of games. The Downs, Garrycastle, Castledaly, Maryland, Shamrocks, and St Loman’s have each been given the favourites tag ahead of their respective games and while they may all oblige, with question marks hanging over most teams, I expect a few upsets over the weekend.
Having flagged the possibility of an upset here last week little did I think that St Loman’s would overturn Garrycastle in such convincing fashion. Their 10 point win over the men from the south of the county is undoubtedly the talking point after round 2 of the senior club championship. Write Garrycastle off at your peril though. When their injuries clear up I feel they will still have a big say in the outcome of this year’s championship. It does however show how vulnerable they are when a few of their more seasoned campaigners are absent which has to be a major worry from their point of view.
The Westmeath senior, intermediate, and junior football championships have snuck up without much fuss or hype. There are plenty of interesting tussles down for decision this weekend.
The fifth, and final, round of group games in the senior football championship are down for decision this weekend. The outcome of each of the six scheduled games will be eagerly awaited as some clubs bid to secure a direct passage to the semi-final, others to gain a place in the knockout stages and yet others battle to avoid a dreaded relegation dogfight.
The opening round of games of this year’s Shay Murtagh Precast Westmeath senior football club championship took place last weekend and there were plenty of talking points not least of which was Tyrrellspass’ draw with beaten all-Ireland finalists Garrycastle.
