St.Pat's v Enniscrone/Kilglass
Top v bottom in this championship group clash on Saturday evening. It is hard to see Pat's coming away with anything in this game. Both teams have played Geevagh a championship favourite and even allowing for the wedding celebrations in the Geevagh camp last weekend Enniscrone won handily enough. Con O'Meara has them for the second year and are playing with confidence in their defined roles. With it being a local derby Pat's will be very much up for it. This is the third year in a row they meet in the championship and all have been tough tight affairs but going with Enniscrone to win this and stay top of the division


Geevagh v Bunninadden
Both teams lost last weekend. Bunninadden are as strong as any team in this championship at midfield with Frain and Clavin which always gives a good starting point but Geevagh will be keen to go into the championship break back in the winning habit. Geevagh have a bit more cuteness throughout the team with a very strong full back line of the Wall brothers who don't panic and I expect the speed of Reilly and power of Hughes to prove the difference in this game


Curry v Ballymote
Ballymote have been involved in 2 tight games already which will stand to them. With 8 minutes to go last week they lead Easkey but as with the week before they let it slip in the last 5 minutes. Curry had a facile win against Easkey in the first round which showed how good their forward play was as they were losing the midfield battle for most of the game. The Marren brothers are well used to a defensive setup at this stage and with Stephen Marren providing cover for the long ball into Irwin and Peter Lyons Curry are expected to win


Easkey v St.Farnan's
St.Farnan's have an issue beating Easkey in the championship. They have managed over the last few years to lose from winning positions over the last few years especially in their last championship 3 years ago when Duffy for Easkey scored 3 great points out near the sideline in Quigabar to rescue Easkey. Finian Cawley was in great form last week but Easkey with Gordon, Mullen and Sloyan around the middle will win the midfield battle. Farnans have better inside forwards with McMunn showing well last week. Still going with history here for Easkey to win
