Down Ladies look to book a place in championship final

Division 3 Champions Down face Division 2 mid table finishers Cavan in the Ulster Intermediate Championship semi-final on Sunday June 23 in Inniskeen.

When the two counties met in 2012 it was Cavan who came out on top after extra time and went on to meet defeat in an Ulster Final against future All Ireland Champions, Armagh.

Both Down and Cavan will be looking to replicate some if not all of Armagh’s achievements last year with their eyes first and foremost on a Ulster final spot 2013 against the winners of Antrim v Fermanagh.

Down have earned the tag of Comeback Queens in 2013.

Their never give an inch style of play from a spectators perspective is a joy to watch.

Fast flowing, end to end play by a team that will never give up,

Down will surely serve up more of the same against Cavan . Armagh and Longford can both testify to the resilience of Down, both thought they had done enough to put these young pretenders out of sight and both fell on their swords.

Cavan will no doubt have done their homework and will be fully aware of Down’s potential to cause an upset.

Down Ladies Manager Benji Ward is certainly not underestimating their opponents.

Throw-in is at 5.30pm. This is followed by the Ulster Senior Championship semi-finalbetween Armagh and Tyrone.
