Division 3A & 3B Previews – Gameday 6

Division 3A

It’s a busy weekend for An Port Mor as they have two Division 3A league clashes coming up on Friday and Monday. Both on are home turf and they host St Michael’s and Collegeland respectively.

They have won two of their four games so far this season and lost to Ballyhegan last weekend by the minimum of margin. A goal from Gary Traynor wasn’t enough to get something from the game.

An Port Mor, last years Division 3B league winners, saw off Collegeland in the championship last season. They beat their neighbours by one, with a late Mark Donnelly goal, to reach the final eight.

St Michael’s and Collegeland locked horns last Sunday afternoon and both had to settle for a share of the spoils. Two goals, one in each half, from Paul Doyle’s side saw the game finished 0-13 to 2-7.

Collegeland also have two games coming up this weekend and their focus will firstly be on Eire Og. Collegeland have home advantage on Friday evening, and they will face a confident Eire Og side.

The Craigavon men picked up their first points of the campaign last week against table toppers Middletown. A goal from Eoghan O’Hagan saw Eire Og win by one and hand Middletown their first defeat.

Middletown will be keen to bounce back as they host Forkhill, the team they were relegated alongside last year. Forkhill got back to winning ways last week as they saw off Lissummon by two points.

Tom O’Hagan recorded last week for Lissummon, but it wasn’t enough for them to get something from the game. They take on Ballyhegan on Friday night, and Ballyhegan have won all four of their games so far.

Division 3B

Thomas Davis can extend their advantage at the top of the table when they face Clady on Friday. The Corrinshego men had a bye last weekend, so they’ll be well rested for their round five clash.

Clady haven’t won since their first-round tie with Killean, although they did claim a share of the spoils last week. They played out an entertaining encounter with Redmond O’Hanlon’s that finished all square.

O’Hanlon’s youngster Daragh McNulty, last year’s Armagh Minor captain, has been in sensational form. He claimed 2-5 last weekend and Mullabrack, their opponents this week, will be well aware of his threat.

Killean, who are newly reformed, have yet to pick up any points but they make the short distance to Killeavy this weekend. Killeavy IIs are currently midtable with four points from their four outings.

St Peter’s II have won their last two outings and hit six goals across the two games. They welcome Madden IIs to Lurgan on Friday night, who are currently on a three game losing streak.
