Leinster U20 Football Championship Final – Offaly v Dublin – 7:30pm
Dublin will take on Offaly next Thursday at 7:30 PM in O’Moore Park, Portlaoise in County Laois, in the U20 Leinster Football Championship Final, live on TG4.
The Dubs enter this final after narrowly beating Wicklow on July 8 at Parnell Park to dramatically win their quarterfinals 1-12 to 1-08.
They went on to draw Leinster rivals, Meath, into the semi-finals played at Pairc Tailteann, Navan. The boys in blue emerged victorious with a six-point margin, beating their historic rivals 0-13 to 4-07 in an entertaining draw.
All in all, Dublin is steadily improving with each match, and if the reigning U20 Leinster champions get into top gear, it could be a long day for whoever they face.
Currently on the 16th U20 Leinster title, they will face Offaly in the U20 Leinster Football Championship final.
Offaly has done as well as you could hope to get into this game, fighting their way through their last two games. Beating Wexford by a single point at Chadwicks Wexford Park trailing 1-09 to 1-10.
As they drew against Westmeath in the semi-finals, they won by two points at TEG Cusack Park in Mullingar and won 1-09 to 1-11.
By conceding the same amount as their previous game against Wexford, but scoring an extra point, their management team will remain satisfied defensively, but when they come up against this young and vibrant Dublin side, their front lines will have to do more.
While Offaly can cause problems from their midfield, Dublin is generally much better, stronger, faster, fitter and better on the ball, with a keen awareness of goal.
If Offaly is to survive, they will have to win the battle in midfield, push through the kick-outs and hope that Dublin’s forward line fails.
Forecast: Dublin with 12 points
Offaly – TB
