Ladies set up Sligo semi with Faithful blitz





Lidl Ladies NFL Division Three

Roscommon 6-16

Offaly 2-5



Following a few less than convincing performances, Roscommon Ladies delivered a devastating attacking display in their final group game against relegated Offaly at Cappincur last Sunday.

  The result means that Roscommon will face old rivals Sligo in the semi-finals with an excellent chance of advancing to the final and more importantly securing promotion to Division Two for 2020.

  Michael Finneran’s charges were never in trouble and Rebecca Finan was on target with the first goal for the Rossies early on. Finan added another goal at the end of the third quarter as Roscommon pulled away.

  When Alice Kelly and Laura Fleming scored well-taken goals on the restart, the game was over as a contest and Roscommon free-wheeled to an impressive victory. Sub Honor Ennis and Laura Fleming added late goals to see Roscommon run up an impressive total and secure their place in the last four.

Roscommon: H Cummins; A McLoone, S Kenny, R Brady, S Bannon; T Murtagh, N Feeney; J Cregg (0-1), J Higgins (0-3); A Kelly (1-0), K Daly (0-1), L Fleming (2-2); S Tully, R Finan (2-7), S Bruen. Subs: H Ennis (1-0), M Freyne (0-2), S Lavin, J Geoghegan, F Flynn, A Hanmore, L Brady.
