Ladies face Laois in last four clash

Armagh take on Laois meet in Dundalk tomorrow to battle it out for a spot in the Division Two league final.

Promotion has been the target from the start of the season. And they are now one step away from earning their first bit of silverware.

The back-to-back Ulster champions remain unbeaten after three games and head into Saturday’s clash as big favourites to progress.

Tyrone, Cavan and Monaghan were all no match for Ronan Murphy’s ladies. As expected, they made the last four without much fuss.

Monaghan finished second and must take on Kerry, with the Kingdom flying high after three wins from three outings.

Laois have only tasted defeat once in their group section of the second division and it was against Kerry.

The Kingdom hammered the O’Moore County in the last round of the campaign, 4-17 to 1-9.

Aimee Mackin has been in flying form as usual. The Shane O’Neill’s star has racked up 2-14 in three games and is currently the top scorer.

Armagh attack

Caroline O’Hanlon made her comeback to the Orchard fold the last day out against Monaghan and signalled her return with two points.

That only strengthens the attacking division that is already stacked. Murphy’s ladies have posted 7-35 in three games.

Their 0-13 to 0-6 victory over the Farney County two weeks ago was the only time Armagh haven’t rattled the net.

The defence has been on top in all three encounters and have only conceded one goal throughout the campaign. On the opening day against Tyrone.

Laois have had much tighter days out but had enough to see off both Clare and Tipperary to reach the last four.

Laois’ main attacking threat Mo Nerney has topped their scoring charts, hitting 3-13 across their three games.

Armagh will hope to tie down Nerney and if they do they should make their way through to the decider.
