Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Premier Junior Camogie Championship
Roscommon were the very impressive winners against Armagh at Rockfield on Saturday evening last. Following a good win against Clare and a walk-over against Tyrone, Roscommon are now on full points and into the semi-finals after a very solid display against the Orchard.
It was a closely fought encounter early on with Niamh Farrells’ early injury not helping Roscommon’s play. But points from Rachel Fitzmaurice, Alisha Lenehan and Shauna Fallon kept the scoreboard ticking over and when Fiona Connell and Kathy Jones added further points Roscommon led at half-time by seven points to six.
Roscommon were totally on top on the re-start and a string of fine points saw the home side pull away. Goals followed from Niamh Watson and Alisha Lenehan to copper-fasten an excellent all-round display.
Roscommon: M Fallon; M Tiernan, N Farrell, A McDermott; A O’Meara, E McNally, J Beattie; R Fitzmaurice (0-1), S Spillane (0-1); A Lenihan (1-3), N Watson (1-5), S Fallon (0-5); F Connell (0-1), K Jones (0-2), C Whyte-Lennon. Subs: L Kenny for Farrell, L Dolan for Connell, C Kelly for Lenihan.
