Westmeath Intermediate Football

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


New forum for Westmeath intermediate football. Section A is more or less sorted but there are a few
important games in the final round of section b. The Bridge face Milltown and the the Bridge must win to guarantee a quarter final spot. Tubberclair face Ballinacarrigy, Tubberclair must win by at least
9 points or more and hope that Milltown do them a favour and beat the Bridge. The other game between Kilbeggan and Multy is a relegation play off now and should be tight. Exciting weekend ahead in section b in the most competitive division in the Westmeath championship.

Tang v Maryland - Tang
Castledaly v Ballymore - Castledaly
Miltownpass v Malachys - Miltownpass
Milltown v St Mary's - St Mary's
Tubberclaire v Ballinacarrigy - Tubberclaire
Kilbeggan v Multyfarnham- Kilbeggan

I can't see too many surprises at this stages. Tang should overcome neighbours Maryland but there is big rivalry here and Tang didn't beat them by much last year. It will be closer than most are predicting. Castledaly should beat Ballymore easy enough. Ballymore have been very poor this year and the size of the scorelines they have been beaten show how much they have been out of their depth. Malachys and Miltownpass will be interesting. A lot will depend on what Malachys team turn up. By all accounts they rested a lot of players against Castledaly for the hurling and they were convincingly beaten. On paper that was a big surprise following their convincing win over Tang in the previous round. Miltownpass are back in a bit of form and ran Castledaly close also so I think they'll pip this. I think St Mary's will win because they have more to play for due to the head to head outcomes. Milltown can afford to lose after already beating Tubberclaire so there is more for St Mary's to play for. Likewise for Tubberclaire against Ballinacarrigy but I don't think there will be much in it either. Ballinacarrigy put up a big score against Milltown the last day and although they don't have anything to play for they will want to finish on a high. I think it's hard to call the relegation match too as neither team has been impressive but I'll go for Kilbeggan.

It'll be an interesting knockout stages if it pans out like that. Any of those teams could beat the other on their day. A tough championship to call

Ballymore really turned things on their head after that win over Castledaly. I make it as Castledalv v Milltown and Miltownpass v Rochfortbtidge in the quarter finals. I stand corrected

Were Castledaly resting players against Ballymore yesterday? Seems a strange result

From previous team sheets they were not and were only missing Paddy Holloway. Ballymore put in a huge performance and the taken goal chances really pushed them on considering the amount of injuries they had. The quarter finals will be an interesting watch!

Interesting knockout stages indeed. With that upset from Ballymore on Castledaly, I believe that changes the outlook of the quarter-finals and semi-final pairings. The pick of the quarter-finals is surely the local derby between St.Mary Rochfortbridge & Milltownpass. MTP got the better of the sides last year and got to the final in 18 & 19. However, with new management combined with some youth and the experience of winning this intermediate championship in recent years, I wouldn't bet against the bridge.

1 Malachys
2 Tang
3 Castledaly
4 Milltownpass


1 St Marys
2 Milltown

Quarter-Finals
Castledaly vs Miltown
Milltownpass vs St Mary's

Semis
Malachys vs (Milltownpass or St Mary's)

Intermediate Championship is a hard call. Anyone of the 6 teams left have a chance to win it

Hard to see Milltown featuring at the business end of the championship, while they had nothing to play for last weekend it's surely worrying for them that they conceded 2-20 to the Bridge. They'd have to beat Castledaly, Tang and possibly Malachy's to win championship. The Bridge could be dark horses, experience from 4 years ago, definitely improving, they're avoiding Tang and Castledaly up to the final.

Castledaly result was on paper , was one of their worst in many years . They won't be troubling any one with that level of performance. Tang will not worry about their semi final opponents. Milltownpass on other side still the ones to beat

I certainly wouldn't write Castledaly off I think they will have big say in this championship yet. While Milltownpass have been poor in the group stages they still have a lot of players to come back and will definitely raise there game against St. Marys. Really hard championship to call.

I agree. Castledaly are still the outright favorites for the Intermediate Championship. They have managed their path well without showing their hand too often. Did enough to negate the group stage and find themselves up against arguably a team who were very lucky to qualify. Kudos to Sheridan, the manager, he's doing a fantastic job there. They'll dispatch of Milltown quite easily and face into a semi-final against a Tang team who'll not have played for 4 weeks.
On the other side there's the local derby for the 1/4 which should bring the best out of both sides - could be their championship. Hard to call it. Unlike Tang, St. Malachy's will be happy with the break because of their hurling schedule and the semi final might be somewhat of a distraction for a lot of them.

Outright favourites is probably a bit of an exaggeration. They've lost to Tang, struggled to get over Miltownpass and lost poorly to Ballymore who up to that point were getting beat comprehensively in every game they played. They were rightfully favourites before the championship based on the fact they came down from Senior after being up there so long and have some very good individuals in their team but they have flaws that are there to be exposed and I wouldn't call the intermediate championship yet because any of those teams could beat each other. Saying Milltown are lucky is also quite harsh. That was a very competitive group and they deservedly finished second. They'll back themselves to give it a good go against Castledaly especially after that Ballymore result against Castledaly. I think they will be two good quarter finals

Very difficult to call, Tang without tumelty and Marlowe are big losses for them, malachys are an uncertainty on there day can, I don't know what happened to Castledaly against ballymore was shocked at that. Miltownpass coming in under the radar a bit might suit them.
Bridge going about there business and seem to be playing well. Hard to call I don't see milltown winning but you never know.
Westmeath gaa are defo pumping your the bridge listening to them they should win senior.

Rochfortbridge to beat Miltownpass for me. They are on a better run and Miltownpass have been too inconsistent.

I have a sneaky feeling Milltown might have a performance in them against Castledaly and will sneak it.
