Division 2A & 2B Previews – Gameday 3

Division 2A – All games on Sunday at 2pm

Division 2A league leaders Culloville take on Pearse Og this weekend and will be aiming to continue their unbeaten run.

The Blues overcame Wolfe Tones in the opening round before drawing with Tir na nOg in round two.

The Ogs started their campaign with a one-point home defeat to Cullyhanna last weekend. They’ll be intent on bouncing back.

A Ruairi Duffy goal gave them the lead at half time, but St Pat’s got ahead with two late points.

Mickey Murray and Shea Hoey split the posts for Cullyhanna, who are back in action on Sunday. They take on Wolfe Tones.

Tony Donnelly done the bulk of the scoring against the Ogs and his attacking threat will cause a lot of teams problems.

The Tones lost their first-round tie against Culloville, despite leading for most of the game, and are chasing their first points of the year.

St Paul’s were four-point winners over Tullysaran last weekend and will once again enjoy home advantage against Carrickcruppen.

2021 Intermediate champions Cruppen also defeated Tullysaran in their first outing of the season thanks to a Ross Magee goal.

Derrynoose overcame Cross IIs by five-point last Sunday and the Rangers have the chance to bounce back against Belleek (1pm).

It’s a repeat of the 2021 Junior Championship final, which Belleek won by three-points. Two James McParland goals helped them overcome Middletown the last day out.

Middletown host Keady, who lost to Whitecross by one-point, and both are searching for their first points of the campaign.

Forkhill, who beat Belleek in the first round, will be aiming for another win when they take on Annaghmore. They will have Shea Coleman to call upon as he has recently returned from Australia.
