Goals from Aimee O’Connor, Rachel Fitzmaurice and Laura Fleming ensured that the Roscommon intermediate ladies’ team maintained their 100 per cent start to this year’s Lidl sponsored Division Three League campaign following Sunday’s 3-15 to 2-9 victory against Laois at Kiltoom.
Playing against a strong breeze in the opening half, Roscommon trailed by four points at the break but they turned things around spectacularly after the break, with Fleming, in particular, producing a superb performance at midfield alongside Caroline Conway.
Rebecca Finan was accurate from frees, contributing 0-5 overall, with the impressive Aimee O’Connor landing 1-4 from corner-forward.
Roscommon travel to Fermanagh on Sunday next where a third victory would strengthen their hand as they seek the coveted two league final berths on offer at the end of the group games.
