Silverbridge – Sarsfields Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 08:30

All in all really it was a day for blankets we even spotted a few in the stand! As the blanket of freezing fog enveloping Castlebar started to lift, Tyrone brought a blanket of their own with them down the N5 and proceeded to smother the life out of the game in what was a frustrating day out. Well, that was a dour old affair in MacHale Park yesterday.

Then came their great chance when awarded a penalty. The shot was well taken but in fairness once again the winners had to thank their keeper for a great save. Having recovered from the shock of that blitz St. Pats gradually got a grip at mid-field and for the next 20 minutes hit some excellent points so that by the last minute of normal time they had reduced the deficit.

Madden showed their intent from the very off winning the throw up and driving straight through the heart of the Silverbridge defence they conjured up a goal chance but failed to raise the green flag. The visitors got the first score of the game a few minutes later but it was to be their last for the best part of the half as Madden entered a period of supremacy scoring four points in a row from Niall Grimley, Aron McKenna (2) and a Ciaran Rafferty free kick.

We will do a weekly Mayo Club 51 mini-league table update here on the site.Well have a rummage through the attic and basement here inMayo Club 51and see if we can come up with a prize for the winner of the predication league at the end of April. If there is enough interest in a hurling mini league, let us know and well set one up. Although its mainly for a bit of craic and to test how well you thinkyouknow your football. The code above is for the football league. There is no limit to the amount of mini leagues you enter (last year we entered into 5 different mini leagues!) You only need to enter your predictions once each week, all the different leagues you are entered into will be updated automatically.

Nonetheless the management maintain there were lots of positives to be taken from the game as the lads continue to defend well and create good chances, with their decision making in front of the posts in particular something to work on this coming week in training. The lads will benefit from no match this week after a heavy schedule of late. Training however will continueon Thursday evening at 7pm.

With the wind in St Pauls favour, the away side began strong with three points from Darren Fox, Niall McPartland and Ryan Lawless. The next five minutes would be a story of hitting the wood work as both the cross bar and post prevented two goal chances for Sarsfields from the Stevenson brothers. However Sarsfields remained ahead with forwards Colin Stevenson, Thomas McAlinden and Paul McGeown keeping the home side with a comfortable lead.

Group 3 is dj vu for Madden as they have faced both Maghery and Dromintee in their last two Championship campaigns beating Dromintee twice while falling at the hands of Maghery on both occasions. Niall Grimley will be the Raparees leader while their attacking division consisting of Conor Grimly, Aron McKenna and Ciaran Rafferty should see them secure a playoff position. Like Dromintee, Annaghmore retained their Senior status on the final day and will be confident of overcoming anyone who travels to their grounds. Dromintee survived the drop to Senior League B with a win on the final day of the season and should be able to hold on to a playoff position in this group. The Mac Iomhair brother Ciaran and Oisin are the key men while Connor Cullen will bolster their attacking options. The Forker clan will be the ones to watch with the supporting cast of James Lavery, Ciaran Higgins, Ben Crealey and Stephen Cusack making the 2016 winners a formidable opponent. Cathal McKenna remains sidelined so the likes of Aaron McKay, Darren McKenna and Conor Martin will be the leaders for the south Armagh side. League Champions Maghery will most likely top the group with three wins from three and continue to build on their league form.

2016 Prediction League week 1 Results

Indeed had St. Despite narrowly losing out in this entertaining tie played at the Athletic Grounds last Saturday evening overall Cullyhanna will be reasonably happy with their performance as they more than matched a side operating in a division above them. Pats not spurned a last minute penalty the result could have been different. With two very evenly matched teams it was always going to be a bit of a hard luck story for whoever came out of tightly contested tie.

Pats could however have established a significant advantage only to be thwarted by two fine point blank saves from the Ballyhegan keeper. The half-time score of 0-4 to 0-3 to the advantage of the eventual winners didnt really do justice to the efforts of Cullyhanna in that opening half. The first half was a cagey enough affair with scores hard to come by as both defences were on top. St.
