TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate FC (Round Two)
Roscommon are through to the knockout stages of the Intermediate All-Ireland championship following this facile victory in the rain at Bord na Móna O’Connor Park last Sunday.
There was a slight blip for Michael Finneran’s charges when they conceded a goal to Offaly in the opening minutes but it was one-way traffic after that as the visitors dominated proceedings.
With Rebecca Finan and Laura Fleming on song from frees and play, it wasn’t long before Roscommon forged ahead and Louise Brady scored a fine goal midway through the half and by the break Roscommon were ahead by eight points. Sub Sinead Glennon scored Roscommon’s second goal shortly after she came on as they ran out easy winners.
It will be familiar opponents for Roscommon in the All-Ireland quarter-final as Sligo will be in the other corner in two weeks’ time. For the moment, however, it’s so far so good for the Primrose and Blue ladies.
Roscommon: H Cummins; H Ennis, A McLoone, N Feeney; J Cregg, A Kelly, S Bruen; K Daly (0-1), L Fleming (0-7); N McHugh (0-1), R Wynne (0-1), S Tully; R Finan (0-6), L Brady (1-0), R Fitzmaurice (0-1). Subs: S Glennon (1-0), for Daly, K Colgan for Wynne, R Brady for Ennis.
