Winning is a habit and momentum is key in sport so despite already qualifying for the league final, Armagh won’t be letting up.
They’ve won all six of their league encounters to date and booked their league final position with a win over Westmeath last Sunday.
It was a slow enough start from both teams, but once Armagh found their groove it was game over.
Lauren McConville’s first half goal nudged the hosts ahead and they pushed on to win by 15-points in the end.
So, heading to Tipperary this weekend, a side they could potentially meet in the decider, Armagh don’t need the points.
But they don’t appear to be the sort of team that would be happy to travel south just to make up the numbers.
Their goal has been fixed from the start of the year. They want promotion and they’re well on their way to achieving that goal.
For Tipperary to secure their spot in the decider, they need one of two things to happen. First of all, to keep their fate in their own hands, they need to win.
If they fail to claim victory, and Laois beat Roscommon, then Laois will qualify for the final due to their superior head to head record with Tipp. So they’ll hope the Rossies overcome Laois.
Armagh will be facing a team that will be well up for the challenge and have everything to play for.
That’ll suit Shane McCormack’s side as they try to build on the progress they’ve made over the last number of years.
They’ll be without Alex Clarke for the foreseeable, while Caroline O’Hanlon has only made one appearance in the league.
Niamh Marley has featured in a few of the games and came on in last weekend’s victory over Westmeath.
But McCormack has given youth a chance and has given a number of youngsters game time throughout the league.
The likes of Maeve Lennon, Blathnaid Hendron, Caitriona O’Hagan and Maeve Ferguson have all impressed.
He can still call upon Aimee Mackin, Kelly Mallon and Clodagh McCambridge, so there’s a super balance to the squad.
They should continue their outstanding form this weekend and add another victory to their record.
