rebelettes face test of nerve against armagh


CHAMPIONS Cork have been drawn against Armagh in Round 2 of the TG4 All-Ireland Ladies SFC qualifiers. The Rebelettes, foiled by Kerry in their bid for a 10th successive Munster crown, will attempt to regroup against the beaten Ulster semi-finalists on August 10.

The draw has pitted Laois against Meath in an all-Leinster affair, Westmeath will play Mayo and Clare have been paired with beaten Ulster finalists Tyrone.

On Saturday, RefCam made its debut in Carrick-on-Shannon as two Round 1 qualifiers were staged at Pairc Sean MacDiarmada. Niamh O'Dea was the match-winner for Clare as they stunned Kildare 3-17 to 1-22 after extra-time.

Martin Flanagan's Westmeath also marched into Round 2 as the midlanders recorded a 1-15 to 1-7 victory over Donegal.

Karen Hegarty scored the decisive goal with 14 minutes remaining and full-forward Fiona Leavy chipped in with seven points in all as Westmeath scored a surprisingly comfortable win.
