Geevagh v Enniscrone/Kilglass

Two teams who both won but in different circumstances. Geevagh had it pretty much their own way against Pats however Enniscrone had to grind out a well deserved victory against Johns. It will be very interesting to see the midfield battle of Donal Mullaney and Kevin Henry both similar players, whose performance often determines the outcomes for their teams. Will Enniscrone be able to contain Pat Hughes when he runs at them and will the recently returned Bryan Jacob contain young Reilly. The ability to put up good scores gives Geevagh the nod


Easkey v Ballymote
Easkey are looking for their first win in the campaign as are Ballymote however Ballymote have got a well earned point from their first round game. How they come out of the game after they possibly felt they let a victory excape them could be vital here. Will Peter Lyons and Mark Irwin have as much space as last week, that is hard to see with Noel Maguire one of the few defenders to put in a good shift for Easkey last Sunday evening. Mikey Gordon should control midfield here and will need young Andrew Kilcullen to get a few scores nearer to goal. Tough one to call but going with last years junior champions to come out on top


St.Farnan's v Castleconnor
The Glenn Young Farnans team enter the competition against their West division rivals who were lucky to get out with a point last weekend. This game is characterised by those who are not there, Kilgannon and O'Connor for the blue and while and Carrabine and Curley for the red and white, all stateside at the moment. Will it be the young lads on both teams who will swing it or the lads who have seen it all before, which was the case for Castleconnor last weekend. Going with Farnan's due to their excellent run at the end of the league which proved to be the best marker last weekend. 


Bunninadden v St.John's
The Bunnies enter the championship after a very poor league campaign but they are joined by Johns in relegation from division 2. The return of Stephen Anderson to the green and white along with the emergence of Matthew Clavin and Cafferky gives the south Sligo side hope however even without the suspended Murphy John's should have too much craft to pull this out of the bag but will need more consistency from frees this week to do that
