Division 3A & 3B Previews – Gameday 8

Division 3A

It’s top versus bottom in the Division 3A league this weekend as league leaders Ballyhegan host Collegeland. The sides have had contrasting campaigns so far as Ballyhegan have yet to be beaten while Collegeland haven’t won a game.

No one in the division has scored more than Ballyhegan and their goal-scoring form continued last week when they hit four majors. Collegeland on the other hand lost to An Port Mor and Forkhill last week.

Youngster Conall McGeough was one of the goal scorers for Forkhill as they picked up a 2-14 to 1-15 victory. They host an Eire Og side that have been in brilliant form of late on Thursday evening.

The Craigavon men lost their first four games but, including a first-round defeat to Forkhill, but have strung together an unbeaten run of eight in a row. They’ll hope to carry that momentum into tonight’s clash.

St Michael’s drew with Eire Og last week and they’re on the road on Friday as they head to Lissummon. Despite heading four goals against An Port Mor last week, Lissummon lost by seven-points.

St Michael’s sit one-point above Lissummon in the league table and have only won once this season so far. The two sides drew earlier on in the league and a huge two-points are on offer this time around.

An Port Mor have been in incredible form in recent weeks and have won three games on the bounce. They take on Middletown who have stumbled slightly recently, losing their last three games in a row.

Division 3B

There are only three Division 3B games that take place this weekend and they all fall on Friday evening. Thomas Davis will be keen to continue their winning streak when they host Madden IIs.

The Corrinshego men have won all six of their league encounters to sit at the top of the table. Madden on the other hand are operating at the other end of the division as they’ve lost five of their six games.

Only Killean are below them in the league table and Killean are on the road this week as they head to Redmond O’Hanlon’s. Despite losing to St Peter’s IIs on Monday, O’Hanlon’s have been in decent form.

Daragh McNulty has been shotting the lights out of late while Charlie Magill and Adam Canavan are other key scoring threats. Killean will be keen to keep the score down when on the road.

Clady will have home advantage when they take on Mullabrack. Both sides lost to Thomas Davis in their most recent outings and will want to bounce back from those defeats with a win.
