Tough game for us Ports tonight. If we lose Liatroim win the league but if we win Ballycran win it.

Between the rock and a hard place !

I predict are lads to go for it and win by 3-4 pts.

With the Poe now safe for the winter the Ports hurlers are off the high stools and up and down the windmill hill trying to make carthorses run. It's all go!

Well done to Liatriom on winning Div1, best team in the league in my opinion and one that is only going to improve in next few years......good win for our lads tonight 2-20 is good scoring but both teams were missing a few so the result will have little bearing come championship.......

Good to see the pick of down doing well against the ards teams.

Ards reserves teams you mean.

Ards teams must be very strong when the pick of down is just beating there reserves

Put 'the pick of Down' up against any of the Ards senior teams and we would see how strong they are. Doubt the Ards teams would win by anything less than at least 10 points.

Kilclief beat Clonduff last night to secure their div1 status, Ballela relegated......to be fair Clonduff looked to have a 2nd string out last night , even seen paddy b snr at full forward !

Some of the comments on here about Liatriom win are reflective of why Down hurling will struggle to progress, instead of welcoming and embracing a new challenge some within the Ards clubs would prefer to belittle other clubs.......bar a golden period in the 1990s and early 2000s Div 2 and 3 of the National league ( more often 3 than 2) has been the home if Down hurling.......we all need to work together and support each other if we are to change that on a sustainable basis........keep the club rivalry but show mutual respect as well.....on a separate thread you almost have glee at one of our three senior clubs being in the mire in Antrim Div 1, how is that good for Down hurling? Nothing to be celebrated there that I can see........

Not looking the backing of anyone just think if we are to progress then we need every hurling maximising their potential, that includes the Ards clubs who will remain the mainstay of our county team into the future hence why we need all of them in Antrim div 1 if possible........

Players outside the ards have been over looked for years.

Good performance by our lads and we are scoring well in recent games which is a positive, to be fair Ports were resting a few I think due to the big game on Wednesday night so wouldn't go over the top on the win .......clearly count for nothing without a good performance on Sunday from our lads but we finished with ten u21s on the field last night so moving in right direction but lng way to go.
