As a curtain raiser to Sunday’s Ulster final, the Armagh ladies continue their charge for a fourth Ulster title on the trot.
They take on Cavan in Clones in the second round of the provincial group stages, following their victory over Donegal last weekend.
There are only three teams in the group, Armagh, Donegal and Cavan, and the top two go through to the decider.
Donegal have already beaten Cavan, 1-6 to 0-4, so for the Breffni Blues to reach the final, they’ll have to beat Armagh by six-points.
No matter what the outcome on Sunday, the Orchard County have already secured their place in the Ulster final.
The three-in-a-row champions overcame Cavan in the opening round of the National League this season.
That was one of eight games on the trot that Shane McCormack’s side won to earn promotion to the top tier.
Goals from Aoife McCoy and substitute Aoife Lennon were the main differences that day. Armagh saw out a 2-8 to 0-5 victory.
They carried that from right throughout the league and into the championship as they showed against Donegal last weekend.
Armagh had eight players named on the Division Two League Team of the Year, and they all started last weekend.
The Mackin sisters Aimee and Blaithin picked up awards. As did Clodagh McCambridge, Grace Ferguson, Aoife McCoy, Lauren McConville, Niamh Coleman and Anna Carr.
Aimee Mackin was the star of the show the last day out and she top scored with 0-9, six points coming from play.
The Orchard trailed at half time but with the breeze at their backs in the second half, pushed on to win comfortably.
Kelly Mallon’s second half goal gave them some breathing space and once Armagh got ahead, there was only going to be one winner.
Sunday is a chance to keep the momentum going and in front of a big Armagh crowd, the ladies will be hoping to show what they’re made of.
