Division 3A & 3B Previews – Gameday 5

Division 3A

It’s top versus bottom in Division 3A this weekend as league leaders Middletown take on Eire Og on Friday evening. Middletown have been in flying form of late, securing four wins from their four outings.

They didn’t get things all their own way the last day out against Collegeland but did enough to edge through by one. A Martin Moan goal was the key score and Middletown have netted in every game his season.

While Eire Og have zero points to their name, their defeats have all been near misses. They suffered one-point losses to Forkhill and An Port Mor while Ballyhegan and Lissummon were four and five point winners respectively.

Forkhill and Lissummon lock horns on Friday and Forkhill are opening to get their campaign back on track. They have been without Stephen Sheridan for the past few games, but he could return this weekend.

Ballyhegan are just behind Middletown in the table with three wins from three leaving them on six. They have recorded ten goals in their last two outings, with Mark Hughes claiming five of them.

They play hosts to An Port Mor who have been in a fine run of form themselves and are aiming for a third win on the trot. They have recorded back-to-back one-point victories over Eire Og and Forkhill.

On Sunday, St Michael’s and Collegeland lock horns and both are hoping to bounce back from recent defeats. St Michael’s lost to Ballyhegan last Friday evening while Middletown beat Collegeland.

Division 3B

Mullabrack can climb to the top of Division 3B this weekend if they secure their fifth win on the trot. They are currently joint top with Thomas Davis, but the Corrinshego men have a bye this week.

Mullabrack have won all four of their opening fixtures and they host St Peter’s II on Friday evening. Kevin Carragher’s side have been scoring freely and have hit 11 goals across their four outings.

St Peter’s displayed their scoring power the last day out as they demolished Clady on home turf by 17-points. Conor Lavery (2) and Dylan Ward nailed their three-pointers in that 3-19 to 0-11 win.

Clady are back in action this weekend and head into their clash with Redmond O’Hanlon’s off the back of three game losing streak. They’ll be keen to overturn their visitors and get back to winning ways.

O’Hanlon’s only started their season last week and lost out to table toppers Thomas Davis by one-point. Debutant Daragh McNulty, last year’s Armagh minor captain, and Aaron Waddell netted in that 2-9 to 0-16 loss.

Tony Bagnall’s side are currently at the bottom of the table with zero points alongside Killean, who are back in action on Friday. They take on a Dorsey team that beat Madden IIs 3-8 to 0-6 in their last outing.
