Firepower to see Armagh through

National Camogie League – Round Three

Armagh vs Wexford

Saturday 29th May – Pearse Og Park – 2pm

The Armagh Camogie team are out this weekend once again as they welcome Wexford to Pearse Og Park on Saturday.

This will be Mattie Lennon’s second game in charge, after Offaly pulled out of the competition, leaving just Armagh, Wexford and Down in Group One of Division Three.

The Orchard County saw off their northern neighbours in devasting fashion in the opening round of the league two weeks ago.

They got their season up and running with the perfect start, bagging five goals as they demolished their opponents in a one sided affair.

Ciara Donnelly was responsible for four of the green flags raised, as she finished with a personal tally of 4-4.

The 2020 Player of the Year looks to have carried her terrific form into this season, and she’ll be one to watch this weekend for the Wexford rear-guard.

Her sister Leanne is another great talent, and she pulled the strings from centre half forward against Down, but she’s no stranger to getting on the scoresheet herself.

The Eglish girls are the ones that make the Armagh attack tick and are ably assisted by the likes of Rachael Merry and Orlagh Murray.

Armagh dominated proceedings from start to finish away to Down and were well deserving of their 5-9 to 1-2 victory.

Wexford likewise were too strong for the Mourne County and picked up their first points of the season last weekend.

The sides played out a much closer encounter than the one Armagh experienced, with six points the difference in the end.

Down done slightly better on the scoring front and but couldn’t get enough to match Wexford as the Model County won 1-11 to 1-5.

Wexfords scoring return won’t bother the Orchard County who are strong defensively.

They have a powerful half back line with anchor Eimear Hayes sidelined by Lousie Toner and Gemma McCann on the wings.

Sinead Kiernan and Eimear Smyth also weighed jn with points the last day out as all the starting forwards got on the score sheet.

Armagh forward unit should be too much to handle for Wexford and Mattie Lennon will be confident of getting his second win on the trot.
