Division 2A & 2B Previews – Gameday 9

Division 2A

There is only one league game taking place on Thursday evening and St Paul’s take on Tir na nOg in Division 2A.

Ronan Clarke’s side were huge 16-point winners over Wolfe Tones last week and sit joint-top of the table.

Tir na nOg on the other hand are at the bottom of the table, although they picked up an important two points against Tullysaran last week.

Tullysaran will be aiming to bounce back as they take on Carrickcruppen on Friday evening (7.30pm).

Both sides are evenly matched in the middle of the league table on eight points, so a win could see either propel into the top four.

Also on Friday evening (8.00pm), Culloville host Wolfe Tones and if results go their way, they can climb to the top of the table.

They caught the eye last weekend, beating Cullyhanna and saw off Wolfe Tones in round one. Ryan Duffy’s goal was the key score that afternoon.

The Tones are just above Tir na nOg in the table at seventh spot and will be eager to pick up their third win of the year.

On Sunday, league leaders are in action against Pearse Og (3.30pm). The Ogs are coming off the back of a devasting one-point loss to Cruppen last week.

Shea Hoey kicked a late winner when these sides clashed earlier in the year. Cullyhanna edged a 0-14 to 1-10 win.

Division 2B – All games on Friday at 7.30pm

Division 2B’s table toppers Keady and Annaghmore couldn’t be separated last week, and they clash again on Friday evening.

A Tomas Galvin goal put Keady ahead at the break, but Dessie McCormack’s side rallied after the turnaround to earn a draw.

Forkhill and Belleek form a part of the chasing pack and the pair trail the league leaders by just two points.

They face off on Friday in a repeat of the 2020 Junior Championship Final and last year’s IFC quarter-final.

Both games ended in draws with Forkhill winning two years ago, while Belleek came through the latter contest.

That shows how evenly matched these sides have been down through the years, and Friday will be no different.

There’s two huge points on offer at the bottom of the table as Cross II and Middletown, both on two, clash.

Middletown picked up their first win of the season against Derrynoose last week while Cross lost to Forkhill.
