Two must win games in 2012 Senior League   19/10/2012

The Senior Hurling League 2012 makes a return this coming weekend with two games fixed to be played as follows:

Sunday 21st October 2012:
Group B: Athenry v Tynagh-Abbey-Duniry
Group D: Sarsfields v Tommie Larkins

This Group B clash is a winner takes all, with either Athenry or Tynagh-Abbey-Duniry vying to join already qualified Mullagh in the quarter-finals. Tynagh-Abbey-Duniry will be boosted by last weekend's Senior Sheld win over Moycullen, while Athenry will have to quickly dust themsleves off after losing their Senior Shield match to Sarsfields.

In Group D, Sarsfields also need a win against already qualified Tommie Larkins. The Woodford outfit looked well off the pace last weekend in their Senior Shield replay defeat to Kinvara by 11 points, while Sarsfields win in that same competition over Athenry will help them have the advantage and momentum heading into this tie. 

So far, four sides are already qualified for the quarter-finals - Mullagh, Tommie Larkins, Turloughmore and Loughrea. There may be another two spots claimed this Sunday, with the remaining two places to be battled for in Group A.

Here is the situation at present...

The impressive Turloughmore are the table toppers here and have long been automatically qualifed.
The second quarter-final slot goes to Loughrea who, after losing their opening two matches to Turloughmore and Craughwell, were faced with the prospect of having to win their final two matches against Kiltomer and Padraig Pearses. That they did!

GROUP D
Tommie Larkins top this group with Sarsfields hoping to join them if they beat them on Sunday.

Here is the status of each club:
- Tommie Larkins qualified
- Moycullen cannot qualify
- Sarsfields have their fate in their own hands, as a win over Tommie Larkins in their final game will ensure qualification. A draw or defeat may also be enough, but  wouldnt risk it!
- Gort must beat Moycullen in their remaining match, and hope that Sarsfields dont beat Tommie Larkins.
- Kinvara must beat Castlegar, and hope that Sarsfields and Gort don't win.
- Castlegar must beat Kinvara, and hope that both Sarsfields and Gort dont win. And then rely on scoring difference.

Based on last weekend's Senior Shield matches, we can almost expect this group to be decided this Sunday, with a good probablity that Sarsfields will join Tommie's in the quarter-final draw.

Kinvara v Castlegar, tbc
Tommie Larkins v Sarsfields, Sunday 21st Oct
