Turloughmore are the favourites to go through against Loughrea. They topped Group 2 with strong performances, regardless of losing a game to Clarinbridge. On the other hand, Loughrea qualified as Group 1 runners up thanks to their points difference. Being underdogs in this game could work in their favour. With nothing to lose, expect them to bring the game to Turloughmore.
Galway Club Hurling Semi-Finals: Cappataggle vs St. Thomas’ (1.30pm), Turloughmore vs Loughrea (4.30pm). Sunday 20th September (Pearse Stadium).
