Boherbue fancied to win league title
Boherbue v St Michaels
BOHERBUE return to Donoughmore on Saturday on a meeting against St. Michaels in the County Junior A Football League Final. Disappointment surfaced for both sides over recent weeks, championship hopes ran out of road on defeats incurred by eventual finalists Dromariffe and Kilmacabea.
St. Michaels parading a second string outfit finished runners up to Delaneys in the City JAFC Final. Into the county, they overcame Valley Rovers before succumbing to Dromtariffe by six points in a quarter final.
Mixed fortunes for St. Michaels in crunch games, losing the County Premier IFC Final to Fermoy before savouring a County Premier 1 Minor Football Championship title at the expense of Nemo Rangers.
For their part, Boherbue had real aspirations of creating an impact on the county after retaining a divisional crown following a replay victory over Dromtariffe. A good victory followed over Canovee but in a quarter final packed with entertainment over two games, Boherbue faltered to a physically stronger Kilmacabea in damp conditions.
A chance here for some consolation for both St. Michaels and Boherbue, expect a competitive battle between the pair in search of a league title.
St. Michaels received a walkover from Kilmurry in a listed semi final owing to players involved with Cloughduv hurlers whereas Boherbue got a good test from Carrig na bhFear in Donoughmore. That may be good enough for a better equipped Boherbue to secure the honours.
