Ladies face Dubs before league decider

Armagh have already qualified for the Division One final, but before that Croke Park outing, they face Dublin in the final round of the league.

It could well turn out that the two sides meet in the aforementioned league final. But that depends on how things pan out this weekend.

At the minute, it’s Armagh and Kerry who hold the top two positions. Dublin will be keen to change that.

Kerry currently own second place on 13-points, with the Dubs coming in just behind on 12-points.

If Dublin were to hand Armagh their first defeat of the campaign, it still may not be enough to seal their spot.

Kerry play Galway on Sunday and a win would place them into the league final, no matter how Dublin gets on.

That’s all out of Armagh’s control of course, and their only concern will be dealing with Dublin on Saturday.

League so far

It’s been such an impressive league so far for the Orchard County in their first top tier campaign since 2017.

They’ve brushed aside all challenges ahead before them and have been playing some great stuff.

Even last week when they were pushed to the pin of their collars. They came good in the end to win the game.

Armagh have already qualified for the Division One final, but before that Croke Park outing, they face Dublin in the final round of the league.

Armagh held a 2-5 to 0-2 lead at the break but Mayo, playing on home soil, battled right back into contention.

However, when a hero was required, Aimee Mackin, scorer of 1-5 on the day, popped up with the winning score.

That confirmed their spot in the decider and extended Armagh’s winning streak to six games on the bounce.

While this weekend is an opportunity to take their foot off the gas, momentum is huge ahead of such a big game.

They may mix things up in terms of team selection, but Armagh will be eager to win the game and keep their fine form on track.
