Roscommon will face Laois in this year’s Electric Ireland All-Ireland Minor ‘B’ Camogie Championship Final in Birr this Sunday following a comprehensive 2-10 to 1-5 win over neighbours Westmeath in last Saturday’s semi-final at Templeport.

The Rossies, who are managed by Colm Kelly and Seán O’Brien, led by 1-3 to 1-1 at the break last Saturday thanks to points from Alannah Sutton, Hazel Kelly and Ava Mulry and a goal from a penalty from Shauna McDermott.

The second half was a more free-scoring affair with Roscommon exerting their control shortly after the resumption. By the time Hannah Murphy scored the Rossies’ second goal, they were eight points to the good and out of sight.

The young camógs will now face what is expected to be a much sterner test when they take on Laois in Sunday’s decider. The Leinster side were comprehensive winners over Carlow in the other semi-final.
