Meath vs. Rockland

The Junior B quarterfinals get undeway Sunday and this competition has provided some great football in recent years. Rockland and Meath are the combatants and both teams have much to prove.

Meath qualified late after compiling a less than stellar record and want to prove their worth. Rockland strengthened by the addition of several Longford castoffs will be trying to make up for a very disappointing campaign by their seniors. Get to the park early for what could be thriller.

Limerick vs. Waterford

Things are starting to shake themselves out in the Senior Hurling division and this match will provide more information. Limerick have hit form after some early season doldrums, while Waterford have fought some inconsistency. With both teams on 6 points, this match has important playoff implications and should go down to the wire.

Women’s Football Final

Cavan vs. Mayo

The two great rivals of New York’s women’s gootball division get together yet again with the silverware on the table. Cavan took the spoils earlier this season in the Kearney Cup competition, but this is the big one. Mayo are the defending champions, finally annexing this title in 2001 after so much frustration at the hands of the Breffni women. Picking a winner between these two is impossible. Just show up and enjoy it.

Kerry vs. Stamford

Stamford enter this match hoping to keep their playoff aspirations alive, but Kerry want to cement their own position and will do them no favors. The Kingdom have only tasted defeat once this season and Stamford, at two wins, a draw and three losses, are unlikely to add second “L” to the Kerry ledger.
