Armagh will be eyeing up some silverware this weekend as they take on Carlow in the Division 3A league final.
Sean Hughes’ side set their sights on promotion at the start of the season and have been in flying form throughout the league.
They’ve strung together a winning streak of four games on the trot and have been seriously impressive so far in 2023.
They carry a huge goal scoring threat that has been extremely important throughout the year, having hit the net 11 times in three games.
Eimear Smyth, Armagh’s hattrick hero against Tyrone, also netted against Mayo and Roscommon the last day out.
She’s struck 5-13 in the league while Rachael Merry and Sinead Quinn have claimed two goals apiece.
Merry, who missed the Tyrone game, came off the bench to land 0-2 in their recent semi-final victory over Roscommon.
The Rossies gave Armagh their biggest test of the season, yet the Orchard Ladies came away with an eight-point win.
Carlow had a fairly comprehensive win over Kildare in their last four clash, winning by 14 points in the end.
Like Armagh, they’ve been putting up big goalscoring tallies and have serious talent in their attacking unit.
The sides played out an thoroughly entertaining encounter when they met in the second round of the league last year.
That goalscoring power was on show as Armagh hit the net five times, while Carlow raised three green flags.
Smyth and Katie Comiskey hit two goals each while Ellie McKee struck Armagh’s fifth goal as they won 5-20 to 3-9.
Ciara Donnelly chipped in with 0-7 that day but she has yet to make an appearance this year and is amongst the subs this weekend.
Sean Hughes has been fairly constant with his team selections and has named another strong starting line-up.
It’s a great chance for Armagh to achieve their ultimate goal of promotion and bring some silverware back to the Orchard County.
