Sometimes the less said the better. The last match of Sunday’s schedule at Gaelic Park was such an occasion. Westmeath had it all their own way, decimating Rangers in Senior A action. Westmeath improved their record 4-1-1 and with 9 points ensured a berth in the playoffs.
For Rangers, one more game remains in what has been a terribly disappointing season. Last year’s Senior B champions never adjusted to the level of Senior A football and this loss, coupled with Tyrone’s victory clinches last place for the Blues.
Man of the Match: P.J. Ward.
