Shannon Gaels have been the surprise packet of the Roscommon Intermediate Football Championship so far this season and they will fancy their chances of making it to the last four when they take on Pearses’ second string in Creggs on Saturday (3 pm). They might indeed get over the line to win by a point or two.
Another contender for ‘Game of the Weekend’ (see Fuerty v Elphin) is Éire Óg v St Croan’s. Both sides would have started this championship with big ambitions and so far Éire Óg have been the more impressive of the two. They have plenty of scoring power and good players around the field and should win here.
Castlerea St Kevin’s are unbeaten and should have enough to beat St Brigid’s’ second team in Ballyleague.
