There’s still plenty to play for in the JFC as we head into the third and final round of the round robin series.
Ballyhegan v Dorsey – Sun 3 Sept – 2pm
Ballyhegan bounce back from their shock first round defeat to Thomas Davis to dismantle Mullabrack.
James McCormack rattled off 2-6 on the day, while James Harvey and Chris McDonald also hit the net.
Dorsey are ahead of Ballyhegan in the table however as they have yet to taste defeat in the opening round of the JFC.
They saw off Mullabrack in the first round while their tie with Thomas Davis in round two ended all square.
Thomas Davis v Mullabrack – Sun 3 Sept – 2pm
Thomas Davis have made a flying start to the JFC, beating Ballyhegan in round one and drawing with Dorsey.
Stevie Trainor has raised green flags in both games while they have a range of different scorers as well.
Mullabrack are already out of the championship as a win this weekend won’t be enough to save them.
If Ballyhegan loss and Mullabrack win, they’ll be tied on two points. But Ballyhegan’s head-to-head advantage means Mullabrack will finish bottom no matter what.
Eire Og v An Port Mor – Fri 1 Sept – 6.45pm
Clann Eireann IIs have already beaten both sides in the JFC so they are guaranteed top place in the group.
Eire Og and An Port are both sure of their place in the playoffs, so this game is to decide second and third.
The experienced heads of Mark Donnelly and Gary Traynor hit a combined 1-4 last week while Cormac Kieran chipped in with 0-2.
Ciaran Corey top scored for the Craigavon side in their first-round game, claiming 0-4 on the night.
Clonmore v St Michael’s – Fri 1 Sept – 6.45pm
St Michael’s suffered a sucker punch last weekend in round one of the JFC, losing to Killeavy II at home.
They were without former Armagh minor captain Sean McVerry, who may make a return on Friday evening.
Clonmore are the favourites for the JFC and with home advantage, are big favourites to win this game.
The Division 3A league champions will go straight to the quarter-finals as long as they avoid defeat.
Collegeland v Lissummon – Fri 1 Sept – 6.45pm
It’s all to play for in Collegeland on Friday as both side are joined at the top of the group with four points.
Collegeland have put up some huge scores to date, hitting a combined 4-30 in their opening round wins.
Lissummon held the upper hand against both O’Hanlon’s and Clady, although not as comfortably as Collegeland.
Steven Matthews remains the top scorer in the JFC having claimed an individual haul of 1-17 in two games.
Clady v O’Hanlon’s – Fri 1 Sept – 6.45pm
Whoever comes out on top between these two will remain in the JFC, while the loser will finish bottom.
That will see them crash out of the championship at the first hurdle, with zero points and three defeats.
Clady battled bravely against Collegeland and Lissummon but couldn’t get close enough in the end.
O’Hanlon’s similarly have lost twice. They’ll look to Adam Canavan, who has hit 1-8 in the JFC, to lead the line.
