Lidl Ladies National Football League Division Three (Round 1)
Roscommon began their league campaign with an impressive win against Wicklow at Kiltoom on Saturday last. With a number of new players on the team this year, Michael Finneran’s side should be strong candidates for promotion as the campaign progresses.
There were five goals in the opening half, including three for Roscommon. Laura Fleming was first to get in for a three pointer, Katie Daly was next to net for the home side on her debut and she made it a personal haul of two before the break. But Wicklow were still in touch by the half- time whistle: Roscommon 3-5 Wicklow 2-4.
Roscommon then took over after the break. Siobhán Tully was outstanding on her return to the team and she set up Rebecca Finan for goal number four for the Rossies. The fourth quarter was a chance for the Roscommon management to run their bench and look at their options ahead of the next round which is away to Kildare this weekend.
Roscommon: H Cummins; H Ennis, S Kenny, N Feeney; S Bannon, J Cregg (0-1), R Wynne; L Fleming (1-2), A Ryan; S Tully, R Fitzmaurice (0-1), K Daly (2-0); S Bruen, R Finan (1-6), L Brady.
