Promising news on the underage front with both the under 13 and under 17 sides making good headway.
The former have reached their divisional final where they will play Lisnaskea. They ensured their passage through to the decider by scoring a good home win over Ederney. This game saw the young Maguires produce a confident display right from the outset and they had the result wrapped up by the time the interval was reached.
A result wrapped up by the interval apparently for the under 17 squad as they breezed past the challenge of Belnaleck in their quarter final clash but the second half was to be an entirely different story as Belnaleck came roaring back.#
In the end it was to be a cliff hanger of a battle the team squeezing out a slimline one point win.
Semi final opponents are as yet unknown, but it will be the winners of the Kinawley v Teemore quarter final clash.
It had been intended to have the under 17 final as the curtain raiser to the upcoming senior championship final next Sunday but hiccups in the initial rounds of the competition has scuppered that agenda.
The Teemore v Kinawley game will not be pencilled in for the foreseeable future so our under 17 squad have a lengthy wait ahead of them before they are back in action.
Action however for the senior side who will take on Lisnaskea in the first relegation semi final on Friday evening. Defeat here and the team will be in division two league football next season. Should they win they then face the losers of the Erne Gaels v Irvinestown tie , another must win game if relegation is to be avoided.
Preparation for the Lisnaskea game has included a challenge tie on Sunday last against Tyrone club Drumagh and it was to be an encouraging performance from the side as they scored a narrow victory.
