Windgap 2-12, Mooncoin 1-12
It is oft times said that what is rare is beautiful, and wins up Windgap way are not as plentiful as they would like. But when they come down the track, they embrace them. They have won a few titles up there, so winning is not a stranger either to them. They continue to box above their weight, and they do as much as your premier club relatively speaking. Their labourers are little in numbers but bursting in size.
Thomastown 2-12, Carrickshock 1-10
This was an enjoyable encounter in which both sides showed considerable enthusiasm, solid determination, and not too little skill. Thomastown won because they had some sterling defenders, and a more direct, and forceful number of attackers.
Played in the excellent Grennan complex, the home side stole an early march on their rivals in the 12th minute when a very determined gallop from forty metres out, the powerful Michael Mahoney drove towards the ‘Shock goal. From a narrow angle, he hand-passed the sliothar to Garry Lehane

The conditions were certainly not conducive to fast, controlled play, rather the slippy surface, and the slippier ball made control a bit of a lottery. The Kilmacow lads seemed to handle the conditions better, and one could suggest that such abilities were the obvious difference in the winning and losing the game.
Kilmacow 2-21, Slieverue 2-8
The first of the Junior B League semis in Mullinavat on Sunday afternoon was a very evenly contested affair, at least for the first half, during which time Slieverue gave as good as they got, and they would have been well entitled to think that they had more than a reasonable chance of winning in the second half. But it transpired that the foundation of such expectation was founded on a base of quicksand. Despite the fact that they managed to draw level with the Kilmacow men with two smashing points by
