Roscommon this evening advanced to the Connacht U20 Championship final, beating Sligo at Dr Hyde Park by 4-13 to 2-12.
Unlike last night’s tie between ourselves and Galway, this evening’s match was a fairly clear-cut affair. Roscommon were on top right from the off, bagging the first four points of the contest and going on to lead by 1-8 to 0-3 at half-time.
The Rossies pulled further away in the second half and while two goals by the Magpies kept the margin between the teams to respectable proportions, the home team were comfortable seven-point winners at the finish.
The U20 final has been confirmed for this night week (21st July) at MacHale Park. Throw-in then has been set for 7.30pm and I assume the decider will be streamed live by Connacht GAA.
