Division 3A & 3B Previews – Gameday 10

Division 3A

It’s going to be a busy weekend for Division 3A league leaders Ballyhegan, who have two games in three days. They host Forkhill on Friday evening while they travel to Collegeland on Sunday.

It’s been a rough few weeks for last years Junior Championship finalists having suffered back-to-back defeats. They’ve lost to both Collegeland and Eire Og in recent weeks and will be keen to get back to winning ways.

Forkhill are on the same points with Ballyhegan, but trail on the head-to-head difference. They have the chance to go top of the table on Friday evening if they can see off their opponents.

Middletown are in that three-way tie at the top of the table as well and they will enjoy home advantage against St Michael’s on Friday. The Newtown men have won one of their last five outings and will hope to improve that record this weekend.

An Port Mor have lost back-to-back league encounters for the first time this season and will hope to bounce back against Eire Og. The Craigavon men were impressive winners over Ballyhegan last week, winning by 14-points.

Collegeland beat An Port Mor in their most recent outing, lifting them off the bottom of the league table. They beat Ballyhegan just two weeks ago, away from home, so will be confident of backing that up with another triumph.

Division 3B

It’s top against bottom in Division 3B this weekend as league leaders Thomas Davis travel to Killean. Thomas Davis have been in brilliant form throughout the campaign, having won all seven of their games.

St Peter’s lead the chasing pack and they are just two-points off the table toppers, although they have won six games on the bounce. They come up against Killeavy II this weekend, who lost to Redmond O’Hanlon’s last Friday.

During that six-game winning streak, the Lurgan men have rattled off a huge number of goals, 24 in total. Killeavy IIs on the other hand have hit 11 in their last three games, so this could be a real goals fest.

Clady sit just one position and three-points above Madden IIs in the table and the pair lock horns this week. Madden defender Ciaran Grimley will come up against his former teammates as he lined out for Clady in the last few years.
