Twelve fi­nals left

More to come on Coiste na nOg front

New Ross Standard - - SPORT -

THE NEW Ross Stan­dard Un­der-13 cham­pi­onships are now done and dusted, but there’s still plenty up for grabs in the older age-groups in the Peo­ple News­pa­pers Coiste na nÓg cham­pi­onships in the next few weeks.

In fact, af­ter last week­end, twelve fi­nals re­main, with sev­eral of those fixed for this com­ing week.

There are also nu­mer­ous semi-fi­nals sched­uled, with the Wex­ford Peo­ple Mi­nor foot­ball Premier last four clashes the pick of them. The ac­tion is set to start on Wed­nes­day evening, with two semi-fi­nals down for de­ci­sion.

The sec­ond semi-fi­nal in the Wex­ford Peo­ple Roinn 2 foot­ball cham­pi­onship is sched­uled. Ban­now-Bal­lymitty and Kil­ross Gaels meet in St. Pa­trick’s Park (7.15 p.m.) in a bid to face Moguegeen Gaels in the fi­nal. The New Ross Dis­trict com­bi­na­tion came through a tough semi-fi­nal with Mon­ageer-Boolavogue last week­end.

Also on Wed­nes­day, Starlights host Buf­fers Al­ley in the Gorey Guardian Un­der-15 foot­ball Premier shield semi-fi­nal in Belle­field. The vic­tors will book their place op­po­site Bal­li­nas­tragh Gaels in the fi­nal, with that game sched­uled to take place on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 19, in St. Pa­trick’s Park.

There’s a big game down for de­ci­sion on Thurs­day too. The first Wex­ford Peo­ple Mi­nor foot­ball Premier cham­pi­onship semi-fi­nal takes place at St. Pa­trick’s Park (7.15 p.m.) and it pits Na Piar­saigh (HWH-Bun­clody and David­stown-Court­nacuddy) against Gorey king­pins Naomh Eanna.

The first fi­nal of the week is sched­uled for Fri­day. It’s St. Anne’s, who beat HWH-Bun­clody in a crack­ing semi-fi­nal re­play last week (3-9 to 3-6), up against Clúain O’Rahilly’s (Gusser­ane and Clongeen) in the Gorey Guardian Un­der-15 foot­ball Roinn 1 cham­pi­onship fi­nal.

Tagh­mon plays host to the En­nis­cor­thy Guardian Un­der-15 hurl­ing Roinn 2 cham­pi­onship fi­nal on Satur­day (11 a.m.) when Bal­ly­hogue, look­ing for a mem­o­rable end to the sea­son, face Rath­garogue-Cushin­stown, im­pres­sive vic­tors over Tagh­mon-Cam­ross in the last four.

At the same venue it’s re­play time as Fethard and Glynn-Barn­town re­new ri­val­ries in the Gorey Guardian Un­der-15 foot­ball Premier cham­pi­onship semi-fi­nal.

Af­ter their first en­counter ended 1-11 each, the game prom­ises to be an­other crack­ing clash. The win­ner will meet Naomh Eanna in the fi­nal, and a date and time for that de­cider has yet to be set.

In the Wex­ford Peo­ple Mi­nor foot­ball Cham­pi­onship, Clough­bawn have been wait­ing a while for their fi­nal op­po­nents but they fi­nally got them when Our Lady’s Is­land/St. Fin­tan’s beat Castle­town last week­end. The fi­nal is sched­uled for Satur­day but the venue and time had not been con­firmed at the time of writ­ing.

Both Shel­maliers and Starlights should know their po­ten­tial Wex­ford Peo­ple Mi­nor foot­ball Premier cham­pi­onship op­po­nent be­fore they meet in their semi-fi­nal on Sun­day in St. Pa­trick’s Park (11 a.m.).

St. James’ lost to hosts Oyle­gate-Glen­brien on Satur­day, with the vic­tors ad­vanc­ing to the Gorey Guardian Un­der-15 foot­ball Roinn 1 shield fi­nal op­po­site Our Lady’s Is­land/St. Fin­tan’s. That de­cider is pen­cilled in for Sun­day morn­ing, with a venue and throw-in time yet to be de­cided.
