Athleague enter race as hurling heats up!

Kepak Roscommon SHC Round 2 previews by SEAMUS DUKE

Athleague v Padraig Pearses on Friday in Athleague at 7.30 pm: Athleague begin their campaign with a tough game against Pearses who will not want to lose for a second week in a row. The result could depend on how strong a team Athleague can field on the day. Pearses might just shade it, but it will be close. Prediction: Padraig Pearses.

Roscommon Gaels v Tremane on Saturday in Athleague at 6 pm: Last Sunday’s win against St. Dominic’s will give the Gaels a boost and they will certainly be hoping to win this local derby. Tremane were defeated by Four Roads but the opposition will not be as tough this time. Another tight game in prospect here. Maybe the Gaels to shade it and make it two wins in a row. Prediction: Roscommon Gaels.

Four Roads v St. Dominic’s on Saturday in Athleague at 7.30 pm: The champions are back in business after a good win in the opening round last weekend against Tremane. They look too strong for St. Dominic’s, who were beaten by Roscommon Gaels in round one. Prediction: Four Roads.
