Replying To Awaywiththeferrys:  "Hard result to take yesterday thought we'd done enough to get the win in extra time thought it was going to be 2 years ago all over again but can't let Conor woods and young savage have so much space in the next game someone needs to be picking them up. Wonder when replay will be suppose county will want it played so county players can get back training"
It'll be whoever learns the most lessons and has the tools to make the necessary changes will take the spoils as both made mistakes and will have had chances to claim victory but also to be happy not to be going home defeated.

We missed some glaring goal chances and the Ports hit a high percentage of wides, a lot were poor shooting with the cross field wind and they'll hope to not repeat that.

Kinda happy with Portaferry and who they'd on Woodsy and Phelim and hope they do the same the next day.

Hope to find out today when the replay will be but expecting it to be probably the same time or maybe the Sunday afternoon.

anyone watch the stream live? What was it like?

You definitely can't let woods and savage that much room or time to be free hopefully lessons learnt portamissed a few near the end from long range but we live to fight another day

Coulda went any way , ports must learn to stand on woods and savage, way too much freedom and these two lads can dictate a game if allowed, older sands was no in the game and eventually came off, didn't influence the game at all.
Mageean put a big shift in, Mcnally had some great saves, think we need a bit of a tweak here and there for replay, though ports had 2 penalty claims that weren't given and Crans got away with some very shall we say close attention to the younger sands.
If ports get it right the job will be done next day.

Well well well 4pm next Saturday, we will have a winner on the day weather it be 65s or penalties not too sure. Think the ports missed a bag full of chances hitting wide after wide. I think the ports played into ballycrans hands pucking the ball down on top of half back line but hopefully learn from mistakes. Should be another close encounter

Colin Murray is the man in the middle.
