Intermediate semi-finals preview by "Wingback"!   16/10/2012

This weekend sees the Finnerty Plant Hire Intermediate Championship semi-finals take place, with two mouthwatering ties to decide who will play in the 2012 Co. Final

Not too many would have predicted the semi-final pairing of Ahascragh/Fohenagh v's Killimor before a ball was struck in this years Championship, but thats not to say that both sides don't deserve to be there because they certainly do.

Ahascragh/Fohenagh have made good progress in recent times and certainly will be hard to handle. If they can bring the confidence and hardwork ethic that was very evident in the group stages they will feel they have a great chance.

Their opponents Killimor don't fear anyone and the more they are underestimated
the more dangerous they can be. They have made serious strides in recent years and will be determined to get back to a Co.Final to make amends for the defeat to Pearses two years ago. Last weeks win over Rahoon/Newcastle will stand to them but they can't afford to go to sleep like they did in the second half as Ahascragh/Fohenagh posess some potent forwards and are capable of doing damage.

The other Semi Final brings together near neighbours and rivals Cappataggle and Killimordaly and this has the makings of a classic tight encounter.

Cappataggle came out of the group pretty much unscathed and by all accounts are going well. If all injuries are cleared up they will be confident enough going into this battle, but one will wonder if the long layoff will make a difference .

Their rivals Killimordaly had the benefit of an extra game and had a good win over Kilconieron last weekend and while they might not have been tested to their limits
the game will stand to them none the less. All that aside, this is a local derby and they can take on a life of their own.
The two sides drew when they met in the group stages and in recent meetings there has been little or nothing between them.

We are set for two cracking Semi Finals this weekend and despite hurling in mid October these four teams have the potential to serve up two good games.

Who's going to be in the 2012 final? It's too close to call!
