Ward Bros intermediate ladies score super win over Sligo but just fall short for final spot:

Our Ward bros sponsored intermediate ladies travelled to Tubbercurry to play their crucial second round Connacht championship fixture against Sligo on Saturday last in sweltering conditions and came away with a fantastic victory over the home side by 3-16 to 1-21. Unfortunately the victory margin was not enough to get Roscommon through to the Connacht final as they had to win by five points or more following their recent six point defeat to Leitrim. None the less while the Rossies girls will be disappointed they will take great hart from this victory and performance as they head to the all- Ireland serious in a couple of weeks’ time.
