The Roscommon junior camogie team have qualified for the Littlewoods Division Four League final following a hard-earned 1-14 to 1-11 victory against Tyrone at St. Aidan’s GAA grounds, Templeport on Saturday evening.
A Tyrone goal on the stroke of half time handed the Ulster side a 1-7 to 0-9 advantage but Leah Rowe’s green flag in the third quarter proved to be a major turning point as Frank Browne’s side set up a decider against Cavan next Saturday.
Rowe ended up with a personal tally of 1-7, while Rachel Dolan and Chloe-Whyte Lennon did well in defence as Rachel Fitzmaurice and Rebecca Brennan were far more influential after the break.
Having won their games with a good deal to spare up to this point, Roscommon will be delighted with the manner in which they eked out this victory and they’ll be relishing the prospect of playing Cavan who had 13 points to spare when the counties clashed in the All-Ireland Junior Premier Championship semi-final last November.
