Roscommon Ladies Book Quarter-Final Spot

Roscommon confirmed their position as winners of the pool four of TG4 Intermediate championship after a 16-point win over Offaly.

Roscommon’s goals coming from Louise Brady and Sinead Glennon as Roscommon 2-17 and Offaly 1-4.

Leitrim face Offaly in the final game next weekend, where victory for either team will seal their passage.

Meanwhile, in the group two Tipperary stormed to a second win in a row with a 7-22 to 2-4 victory over Longford, with Aisling Moloney’s 2-11 haul helping them to a place in the quarter-finals.

Meath were also very impressive winners in Group 2, and after their 21-point victory over Wicklow they too can reach the last eight with another win next weekend against Longford.

In Group one things are a lot tighter. Kildare maintained their perfect start with a slender four-point win over Sligo in Tubbercurry, and barring a big defeat to Down next week they will go through to the quarter-finals.

Down recovered from last week’s loss to Sligo by beating Limerick, which has given them hope of qualifying too.

In Group three, Clare secured a 4-13 to 1-12 win over Laois, which has put them level with Wexford at the top of the standings.

Nothing is certain in this pool yet, but if Laois cannot beat Wexford by nine points next weekend they will face a relegation play-off.
