Ciaran Loney added to his sides tally which left the visitors leading by double scores as Aaron McGarry replaced Thomas Gallagher and with his first kick of the ball he helped himself to an opportunist goal.

Leagues all finalised and Championships at the business end of things.Hurling: Senior - Semi Finals played as double header yesterday with St Johns and Cushendall having to do it all again after playing out a draw. Likely a Lisburn/Ardoyne final. Should be a GNM win.Football:At the semi finals stage with the fixtures to be played over the coming weekend.Senior - first semi between Casements Portglenone and Lamh Dhearg on Saturday with St Galls and Cargin meeting on Sunday. Two tight games with perhaps Moneyglass and Aldergrove shading it.Junior - Lisburn v O'Donnells and Ballycastle v Ardoyne. Dunloy wait the winners or the replay after defeating Loughgiel by 3 points.Intermediate - Carey Faughs to play Sambo managed St Endas in the final after semi final wins over Sarsfields and Glenariffe respectively.Junior - looks to be an all city affair as St Pauls have already claimed their place with the other semi seeing Rasharkin and Gort na Mona play this Wed night. Could go either way but if was to stick neck out would go for a LD and Cargin final though could as easy be the other pairing.Intermediate - Con Magees Glenravel play Moneyglass in first semi on Saturday with Aldergrove and St Pauls playing on Sunday.

Moneyglass finished the first half on top however anddespite the loss of McErlain to injury and Jack McCoy to a black card, theyopened a nine point lead by the interval.Colum Duffin with his fifth point of the half before Prenter scoredtheir second major with the last action of the half. Patrick McCormick and Tiernan Duffin involvedin the build-up before the flying Moneyglass forward applied the finish.

MM would expect to beat any of the other 6 teams left, but it's hard to see them winning this. They almost caught Corofin in the drawn final last year, but played a very negative style to do it. Tuam had a narrow loss to Corofin in the group, which is their only defeat this year. Football quarter-finals in Galway this weekend.Corofin vs Mountbellew-Moylough: Last year's finalists. Michael's: A look at the teamsheets would indicate a Moycullen win, but Michael's have proven to be very dogged this year. Claregalway have been very strong underage for a number of years and the signs are showing now at adult level. Tuam are expected to win this, but I wouldn't rule out a shock. An Spidal are missing their county player, but have improved and were very competitive in all of their group games. Moycullen have a number of county players and panellists from recent years, but have a few injury concerns and absences. Salthill in another tight game.Moycullen vs St. Corofin haven't been near top gear yet and cruised through the group, but I'd expect them to step up the level when needed.Salthill-Knocknacarra vs Claregalway: Salthill topped their group unbeaten, but had a good few tight matches. I'd expect Moycullen to come through.An Spidal vs Tuam: Last year's intermediate champions who went on to win Connacht against a Tuam team who've been in excellent form this year.

The only result which will deny them the crown is a 10 point or more defeat. The Senior Championship starts this weekend with the Preliminary round. Cushendall can finish third if they defeat St Johns at home this evening but any other result will have the Johnnies holding 3rd spot.The Hurling Championship has already started with the group stages in the Senior underway following the preliminary round where Rossa defeated Ballycastle with quite a bit to spare. In Antrim the Hurling leagues have been wrapped up and the Football is due to conclude this evening. Dunloy retained their status of Hulring League Champions ending 4 points the better of Loughgiel in second place. After the first two group matches (3 teams in each group) Dunloy beat Cushendall by point in Group 1 and Loughgiel beat St Johns by 6 in Group 2. Top 2 in each group in to semi draw (can't draw same team from group).In Football, Cargin have one hand one the league trophy and play second place Creggan away in the final game tonight. The first round follows with Cargin, St Galls, St Johns and Creggan joining the following round, the 1/4 final (these happen to be the 4 teams in the top 4 positions in the league). Rossa and St Galls are the other two teams, one in each group. Cargin and St Galls can potentially meet in the semi final with St Johns and Creggan aiming to make the other semi.

When Kelly split the posts in the 14th minute forthe St Ergnats to put nine between the sides, they were dominant and gave thevisitors very little in the way of chances.Ryan ONeill opened their account with a point from distance with theoutside of his boot and would signal the start of a mini revival by thevisitors. They went onto score a furtherthree points unanswered from Christy Sheerin (two) and Ciaran Dobbin.

Owen Gallagher showed all his class when he jinked through for a point for the visitors but when Seamus McGarry while under severe pressure was fouled, he landed a point from the resultant free to edge the home side two in front once more. The young Chapel Hill side was tiring on the heavy pitch when the management made three changes which settled the side down. Connor Morris got on the score sheet with an excellent point as play continued to swing from end to end. From the throw-in Owen Gallagher broke free and landed the equalizing score but Seamus McGarry showed all his experience to slip his marker and put his side back in front. Thomas Gallagher closed the gap to the minimum when he split the posts with a beauty before Brian McQuillan replied to extend the home sides lead with a point from some distance.

for me it's Celbridge or Athy to win it out.Intermediate will be won by Clougherinkoe, Monasterevin or Leixlip with the Cloughs my tip.Junior final is this weekend and I'd imagine it's Ballymore's with a good bit to spare. Kildare has been without much surprise, other than Naas' demise leading them to a relegation play-off, very soo matter winning div.1 of the league.With the senior semi finals coming up it is all to play for and the teams left will all feel they have a chance. Moorefield were beaten by Sarsfields in the group stages and I'm not sure they have the 3 in a row in them..

Christy Sheerin fired over his third point of the match tocut the gap to four points but the home side managed the time remaining bykeeping hold of the ball and not giving Tr na ng a sniff. Conaill Prenter took his tally to 1-3 for thegame with the last kick of the game as the home side celebrated a comfortablevictory. The two points ensure theMarion Hill side are now guaranteed second place and a two-leggedpromotion/relegation play off with whoever finished second bottom in DivisionOne.

Meath is down to 9 with last season's champions out in the group stage after picking up 5 points in 5 matches.This weekend sees a preliminary quarter final before the quarterfinals proper next weekend.3 relegation games will cut the field from 18 to 16 next season with only 1 team to come up.Gael Colmcille and Simonstown feel like the teams to beat.On their day any of the teams can cause a shock.In Antrim it's hard to look past the winner of Cargin and St Galls.

Owen Gallagher, one of sixbrothers in the St. Fergal Burke responded for St. Josephs panel, burst through from midfield to land anexcellent point but back came the Crumlin men with a move that started indefence and finished with Fergal Burke finding the back of the net. We then had the firstgoal of the game when Thomas Gallagher was alert and finished to the net forthe visitors to restore their lead. James toclose the gap to one when he split the posts but the ever reliable MichaelMcCourt added to his tally with a pointed free. The visitors playing up the hill were first on the scoresheet with a Michael McCourt pointed free but Brian McQuillan and SeamusMcGarry replied with points to put the reds in front.

Play Omagh. Play Omagh or DgnTrillick - Brennan's and Donnelly's pose massive threats capable of beating anyone. Throw a dice in Tyrone - League as it stands Coalisland - Reigning champions, welcome back Hampsey and McKernan. Play Trillick. My pick for top 4. Winners play Errigal or EglishErrigal Ciaran - Normally run away with league. Play Moy winners play Dromore or TrillickWith top teams drawn against each other like Trillick v Dromore and Coalisland v Ardboe left a few bottom teams drawing each other. Winners play Kilyclogher or DonaghmoreDromore - Consistent performers, good squad potentials there to win it. Not so much this year and always fall short in Championship. Play Eglish should be walkover. Lost McAliskey last year during the first round and suffered narrow defeat. Ability is definately there just needs to be applied. 2 out of the bottom 3 play each other in Edendork v Tattyreagh and 2 other teams whom i dont see winning it Derrylaughan v Carrickmore who will then play off against each other will guarentee one of them 4 in the semis. Winners play Moy or ClonoeDungannon - No starred players missing throughout the season, young team and winning 7/9 games only team that got promoted last year to be outside of relegation zone. Play Ardboe. (See Dromore)Clonoe - Another team that will always pose a threat.
