PIER HEAD Minor B quarters this weekend   12/09/2012

The battle for this years PIER HEAD Minor B Hurling Championship resumes this weekend with all 4 quarter-finals down for decision.

Saturday 15th September
Kinvara v St. Thomas, in Gort 6:30pm
Mountbellew-Moylough v Rahoon/Salthill, in Athenry at 4:30pm

Sunday 16th September
Oranmore-Maree v Killimor, in Ballinasloe at 4:00pm
Ahascragh-Fohenagh v Portumna, in Ballinasloe at 5:30pm

On Saturday, Group B winners Mountbellew-Moylough will hope to continue their good form as they take on city side Rahoon-Salthill. The North Galway side have probably been the surprise packets this year, but there can be no surprises anymore as they face Rahoon-Salthill who have also been impressive in their group. The second tie on Saturday sees the clash of the South Galway duo of Kinvara and St. Thomas. Kinvara finished second in their group as only lost the one match (to Oranmore-Maree by one point), while St. Thomas always field strong at minor and this year is no different. A close match expected here too.

Sunday starts with Group A winners Oranmore-Maree travelling east to take on Killimor. The Oranmore side were well tested in their group matches and can expect nothing less from Killimor who always are a tough opposition. The 4th quarter-final of the weekend has the Shannonsiders of Portumna facing the Ahascragh-Fohenagh lads. This East Galway clash is hugely anticipated and should prove perhaps the clash of the weekend.

So, four mouthwatering clashes to look forward to and we hope you all come out and support your local club or simply Galway hurling!
