A controlled Roscommon performance proved to be the catalyst for a 1-10 to 0-6 victory against Louth, which saw Ollie Lennon’s side reach the semi-finals of the All-Ireland Intermediate Ladies’ Football Championship at Kinnegad this afternoon.

Roscommon were never behind in the contest, produced a superb defensive performance and only hit one wide in a very productive 60-odd minutes for the Division Three League champions.

A couple of Fiona Tully points in quick succession edged the winners 0-4 to 0-2 ahead before the Kilbride player combined with Aisling MacAuliffe to allow Aisling Hanly palm the ball into the net for the game’s only goal.

Roscommon led by five points at the break, and Louth never looked like eroding that advantage as captain Laura Fleming, in particular, kept the scoreboard ticking over for her side.

Caroline Conway, Niamh Feeney, Sinead Kenny and Roisín Wynne were superb in defence as Roscommon closed out the game comfortably to set up a semi-final against Wexford and leave themselves only 60 minutes away from possibly playing in Croke Park.
