It’s playoff time in Boston as this weekend sees two semi finals in mens senior football and one semi final in hurling take center stage at Canton outside Boston.  This means that last weekend was crunch time for teams trying desperately to stay in contention for a playoff birth. One such team in the football was last year’s Intermediate champions Armagh Notre Dame, who were pitted against ’09 runners up Shannon Blues and after a tight opening half, it was the ‘Blues who showed the necessary appetite when pulling away for an easy win. The Armagh loss meant that both Donegal and St Christopher’s got through, finishing  joint 3rd behind, ‘Wolfe Tones and Aidan McAnespies. Table toppers Wolfe Tones who had already booked their place in next week’s semis, had a narrow win over Kerry while Mac’s had an impressive win over Galway. Last year’s champions, ‘Christopher’s also got a win on Saturday when beating Connemara Gaels. Meanwhile in the big hurling clash on Sunday, Fr Tom Burkes with a win over league leaders, Tipperary had a shot at a semi final birth but they were well beaten by Tipp. The previous day Wexford accounted for Cork and so meet Galway in next Sunday’s hurling semi final.
