Ballymote v St.Farnans  (NOW IN KEASH)
Either team can reach the quarter finals but either team could be in the relegation final. An awful lot to play for both teams. Ballymote started the league stage in great fashion and were unfortunate to draw their first game. They have lead in all 3 of their games in the final 10 minutes but have not held on at any time. Farnans are finishing their games stronger and put up a very good losing score against Curry in the last round. With Kilgannon, Lang and O'Connor back in the starting line up, it would apear the men from the west have the momentum with them


Curry v Castleconnor
Not a lot to play for in this game, both qualified for the final stages. Having met in the final round of the division 1 league when both were already relegated, Curry were on top for most of the game with Castleconnor coming into the game late. Curry had the edge in last years semi final in a good tight game but a lot of those players from either side are no longer togging. Red Óg is back so that will be a huge lift to Curry but it will still be Adrian Marren pulling the strings. Castleconnor put Easkey to the sword in the last round when the pressure was on but this game is a different proposition.


Enniscrone/Kilglass v Bunninadden
Unbeaten Enniscrone take on a Bunni team who were glad to get over their losing streak in the last round. Bunninadden found their scoring touch in that game and showed a lot of fitness in finishing the game out. Enniscrone will be hoping to keep their unbeaten run going and the midfield battle will be interesting. In a tight physical game v Geevagh, Bunninnadden were found wanting and I expect the same again.


St.Pat's v St.John's
How will Pats react to their defeat in the last round. Fitness was an issue as the game entered the final quarter. Johns have flattered to deceive the last few weeks but still have players who can shine when needed. They will be looking to this game as a momentum changer and get them ready for the quarter final. Both have been relegated in the league but expect the town side to come through
