Sunday, 12:30 p.m., JFA

St Barnabas vs. Fermanagh

Two teams at opposite ends of the standings open the Sunday schedule at Gaelic Park. With so many matches left to be played in the various groups, this is not the sort of match likely to attract a crowd on a summer Sunday. Barnabas should take the points.

2 p.m., Senior Hurling

Connecticut vs. Offaly

Offaly finally got their first Senior win after a couple of years of struggle when they topped Clare recently. Connecticut, with their regulars Hennessey, Purcell, Wickham, and company, should be too strong for the Faithful as they continue their successful season as Senior debutantes.

Westmeath vs. Rangers

Westmeath are in good form after playing to a thrilling draw versus Leitrim their last time out. Evan Kelly got the big scores in that match and the Ward brothers are always dangerous.

Rangers have picked up their play after a disappointing start, but are still toward the bottom of the standings. Westmeath, fighting to secure good playoff position, should prevail.

5 p.m., SFA

Tyrone vs. Cavan

Tyrone are out of contention and Cavan are struggling to keep their hopes alive for the postseason. Tyrone were a lot better than their record indicated this season, dropping several close decisions. Still with more to play for, Cavan are like to claim the spoils.
