The final round of group fixtures in the Irish Wire Products Senior Football Championship takes place this weekend and there is one semi final spot down for decision.
In Group 2, both Newcastle West and St Kierans have a 100\% record have four wins from their four games to date but something must give in Knockaderry on Sunday evening.
A draw would suit NCW due to their superior scoring difference but a St Kierans victory will see them straight into the county semi final. NCW maintained their perfect record with a 5-17 to 4-3 win over Oola in the last round.
Fr Casey’s and Ballysteen will fight it out for the other quarter final place when they meet in Newcastle West.
It’s effectively a winner take all game but a draw will earn Fr Casey’s a spot in the knockout stages. The final game in Group 2 sees Oola take on St Patrick’s in Knocklong.
St Pat’s drew with Ballysteen last time out and will be favourites to maintain their place in the SFC against an Oola side that have lost all four games to date.
Adare have already booked a last four spot from Group 1 thanks to their four wins from as many games. The remaining knockout spots will be taken up by St Senans, Ballylanders or Monaleen.
The 2016 champions Monaleen could still be drawn into relegation trouble if results go against them.
Na Piarsaigh are bottom of Group 1 with one point after an opening day draw with Monaleen but the Caherdavin side have struggled since that game. They should have a full squad to pick from for their game with Ballylanders.
Former kingpins of the Limerick SFC, Drom-Broadford have struggled and a defeat to Monaleen could land them in relegation trouble as well.
