Ruthless Roscommon in big win over Mayo

Junior All-Ireland Camogie Championship
Roscommon 4-23 Mayo 0-3

 The Roscommon camogie team put on a fantastic attacking display to inflict a huge 32-point defeat on a poor Mayo team in the Junior All-Ireland Camogie Championship last Saturday in Ballyforan.

It was a dominant performance by the Roscommon ladies from the start. They led 1-11 to 0-2 at half-time. Claire McNeill finished highest scorer, with 2-3.

Joint Roscommon managers Eoin Hardiman and Cian Ryan had made five substitutions by the 39th minute, allowing some of their key players to rest ahead of this Saturday’s game against Cavan.

The win over Mayo meant that Roscommon are two from two in the championship so far after they defeated favourites Limerick two weeks ago in the opening round.

With the top team in each group qualifying directly to an All-Ireland semi-final and second and third place qualifying for the All-Ireland quarter-finals, Roscommon look guaranteed to advance to the knock-out stages.

They face Cavan in round three this Saturday at Padraig Pearses’ ground in Woodmount at 2 pm.
