Three semi-finals and three play offs are set for this weekend as the Tyrone Ladies All County League reaches a critical stage. There’s also two Junior B Championship semi-finals this Sunday.
The two “last four” games in division three are also free to go ahead on Sunday as planned. Badoney face Castlederg and Clann Na nGael tackle Coalisland in the junior grade after the league rounds last weekend didn’t alter the top four situation. For the other divisions it’s not as straight forward though.
In senior the St Macartan’s and Aodh Ruadh semi-final is down for decision. However Errigal Ciaran who finished the campaign unbeaten will have to wait on their opponents. Killeeshil play Moortown for the fourth spot in the top division after the pair ended all square on points.
The sides met recently and while the official score was given as a draw Killeeshil felt they had edged a thrilling contest by a single point, a win of course would have made all the difference. Instead Moortown, in their first season in the top flight could nudge themselves into the semi-finals ahead of the championship. Without doubt this could well be a thriller again.
Sperrin Óg look set for the drop unless they manage an unlikely championship title to salvage their season but two clubs will go toe to toe to try and avoid the second drop spot. Fintona, who beat Trillick last weekend, face Cookstown Fr Rocks in a winner takes all play-off at St Lawrence’s Park.
Division two is more complex after three teams ended level on points following the final round of league games. While Cappagh and Edendork are set for the last four, Omagh, Clonoe and Moy will battle it out for third and fourth.
Clonoe had a walkover against Glenelly while Moy secured a surprise win against the previously unbeaten Cappagh, a point would have been enough for Omagh but they came up short at the Malachy’s.
Third spot will go to Sunday’s play-off winners from the meeting of Omagh and Clonoe at O’Neills Healy Park. The side that misses out however have a second chance, with fourth spot on offer as they face a clash with Moy, That game is pencilled in for after the championship.
On the back of their championship quarter final win on Sunday over Owen Roes, Stewartstown will face Urney in the semi-final of the junior B, Drumquin will play Naomh Eoghan at Aghyaran in the other semi. Tyrone Fixtures have planned the junior B final for September 3rd.
