Caulry – Milltownpass Match Prediction | 06-10-2019 10:30

Garrycastle came out on top in the first two, though they needed a late James Dolan point to earn a replay in the 2011 final. *Garrycastle v Mullingar Shamrocks(Saturday, TEG Cusack Park, 5pm)Garrycastle will be seeking to return to the Westmeath SFC final for the first time since 2014 when they take the field later today (Saturday) but standing in their way are reigning county champions Mullingar Shamrocks. St Loman's had been the dominant force in Westmeath football recent years, but it was their local rivals Shamrocks who ended their run of county title wins last year. Garrycastle were already through to this year'sknockout stages and virtually assured of a semi-final place before their last group game against St Loman's. There has been plenty of history between these two sides in recent years, and Mullingar Shamrocks manager Ned Moore said his side owe Garrycastle a beating in the aftermath of the quarter-final win over Coralstown/Kinnegad. There was a very keen rivalry between the sides in the early part of this decade. The two teams finished their group games on very similar scoring difference Garrycastle with +21 and Shamrocks on +20 - which meant the 'Castle men went directly through to the semi-finals. They met in three finals in row from 2010 to 2012, and two of those deciders went to replays. With Jack Donohue and Justin Barrett back in the fold this year, and young Jason Nugent making an impact up front, the Garrycastle panel looks stronger than last year. Two years later, Garrycastle surprised many observers by regaining the Flanagan Cup, again beating Shamrocks in the final. As things transpired, the comprehensive manner of the defeat almost forced them into the quarter-finals. Garrycastle won the group game between the sides last year (after a tense finish in Rosemount), and the Athlone-based outfit also came out on top in this years meeting in the group stages. Yet this is the acid test for the team managed by Gary Dolan and John Keane. The rest is history as they say, with Garrycastle following up their victory in the replay by going to win the Leinster title.When Shamrocks finally got the better of Garrycastle in the 2012 final (in another replay), they not only ended Garrycastles hopes of four-in-a-row, they also dethroned the Leinster champions. In addition, former defensive lynchpin Kieran Gavin made a match-winning contribution in attack off the bench in the quarter-final. Last years defeat didnt prevent Shamrocks from going on to win the Flanagan Cup and it would be unwise to read much into this years meeting either. Garrycastle will be conscious of the ball-winning capacity in the Shamrocks team in the shape of players like Denis Corroon and Daragh Daly.

Last year, Moate felt they blew a chance of reaching the semi-finals when losing out to Milltown. With Milltownpass going straight into the semi-finals, it means Moate have two extra championship games under their belt and that could prove an advantage. Moate All Whites v Milltownpass(Saturday, TEG Cusack Park, 3.30pm)Having overcome Multyfarnham after a replay, Moate All Whites now face a semi-final against Milltownpass as they seek to reach the intermediate final for the first time. They have already gone one better this year and they won't want to stop now. Moate started their campaign impressively, defeating local rivals Caulry, but they suffered defeats to Maryland and to their semi-final opponents (2-9 to 1-9). Ruair Cunningham can be a big influence at midfield and in terms of scoring power, much will depend on Robert Forde and John Corbally, along with the aforementioned Berry. However, a draw against Tang and an emphatic dismissal of Milltown was enough to see John Twaddle's charges advance to the knockout stages.Milltownpass will be looking for inspiration from Sam Duncan, a regular on the Westmeath team this year, while Noel O'Reilly also featured for the county team early in the season. Moate will also be looking for solid displays in defence from the likes of the Gorman brothers (Paul and Andrew), Sean Bracken and Dylan Ennis. The return of Billy Berry from the United States has been a major boost for Moate and he was impressive in the win over Multy. Milltownpass were finalists last year when Shandonagh proved too strong in the decider.
